Updates...from KK

I am currently at the Coffee Bean somewhere near 1 Borneo complex in Kota Kinabalu. Been here for since Wednesday. My flight back to KL is at 3.30PM. So I have a lot of time 'to kill'.The fourth instalment of the national symposium on Islamic banking for the state of Sabah was concluded yesterday. We still have two more stops to go - in Trengganu for east coast region and in Kuching. Unlike the earlier three events that were held in Penang, KL and JB, this time the symposium in KK was conducted in 2 days instead of one day. The organiser felt that we need to give more exposure to the bankers and lawyers in Sabah on the basics of Islamic banking both from Shariah and legal perspectives. I presented two papers at the symposium - one each per day. It may be a bit tiring, but I am glad to see the enthusiasm in the face of the participants during the 2 day event.

My shoes....gone!

This morning, I saw a shoe (was it left or right side?) lying in front of my gate when I was going out to send the girls to school. My thought was, "....budak mana la punya kasut ni".

I wish I could have put up an entry much earlier; but I was caught up in terrible deadlines in the last few days.Let the pictures do the talking.The participants were asked to collect their Race Pack on Friday and Saturday. I went to collect it on Friday (26th June) itself since I would be sending my niece to UiTM on Saturday. There were long lines divided into each race category. The lady with a tattoo on her arm was in the queue next to my line. Hope to see her again during the race. :)This is the Race Pack. It contains the running bib and another smaller bib to be attached to the bag on race day. There's a complimentary event T-Shirt inside. But I didn't wear it on the race day because......I bought a new running shirt specially for the event!. Baru la semangat. Heh he he...gaya mesti mau. Penting tu..... It's a Nike dry fit made of thin fabric that is supposed to ensure the sweat will dry off quic…
