Insya Allah.

Jemputan dihantar kepada saya melalui emel dari Kementerian Penerangan dan diminta saya menjemput 15 ahli MBA.

Sekiranya ada ahli MBA yg berminat dipersilakan hadir saja kesana dan mendaftar diri di Urusetia.

Assalamualaikum aliya,

Well, I had an eventful day at the forum and got to ask 3 questions to the forum panelists.

A question addressed to the MCMC in the morning session and 2 questions in the afternoon session.

One question posed to Rocky Bru and another to Norila Daud, President of the NUJM.

More details will I share in the article concerned following this.

Insya Allah.
