Today, Sunday 4th April 2010, had an interesting discourse on Islamic Management of Poverty with officers of Trust Fund Department of Islamic Development Bank Group in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Led by energetic, friendly-mannered and knowledgeable Director of the Department, Brother El Mansour Feten, the discourse ended after nearly two hours.

Life here in Jeddah therefore as busy as while I was in USM. Very happy and interesting to have many new friends from all over the world, while accumulating knowledge and generating networkings.
