During SEMAIAN, my big sister Kashah and I spoke to one of our favourite politician, YB Dato’ Zulkifli Noordin, an Independent Member of Parliament for Kulim – Bandar Baharu, Kedah.
When he was still a PKR MP, Uncle Zul went against the opposition’s stands on “Allah” issue; just like what Uncle Nasharudin Mat Isa is doing now.
Even though I often saw Uncle Zul Noordin at other MUAFAKAT‘s programs, this is the first time I spoke to him.
It was so wonderful talking to him for he is very nice and very friendly.
I was so excited meeting him that I forget all the questions that I wanted to ask him.
It was something like how I felt the day I met Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on May 23, 2010.
Well, at the time I was a big fan of Anwar but not anymore after I heard his March 18, 2010’s speech at the London School Of Economics on YouTube .
Uncle Zul said that when he was studying in New Zealand, Uncle Zul met a man who gave him advices that made him a better person.
And that day, Uncle Zul advised me to always tell the truth, no matter what and stand for the truth.
While we were talking, AntaraPos’s reporters came to interview him.
After the interview, I asked Uncle Zul for an autograph.
Uncle Zul also gave me his business card and that made me feel so proud.
I wish I can talk to Uncle Zulkifli Noordin again and this time I’m going to ask him some questions.
I am so happy and thankful to be able speak to a lot of wonderful people.
I was very lucky to meet a lot of wonderful and friendly people from lots of medias such as AntaraPos, Utusan, Astro Awani, RTM, TV AlHijrah, Radio IKIM and others during the Seminar Mendaulatkan Islam Agama Negara which was held at Dewan Muktamar Pusat Islam on Saturday, January 5, 2012.
Here are some of the photos of them that my big sister Kashah and I snapped during the event:

Have you ever catch a feather from a flying bird?
I caught one on July 17, 2011 on the field in front of the Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi in Butterworth, Penang.
I walked across the field with my father to take some photos of me standing in front of a SEMAIAN banner (please click here).
As we walked back to the Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi Hall, we saw some pigeons on the field.
So I walked slowly towards them as not to scare the pigeons.
But they flew away…
Suddenly, one of pigeon’s feather flew out of it’s wings.
It flew in the air.
I ran after it and I caught it before it falls to the ground
And I took the feather back to Kuala Lumpur 😉
On Sunday, July 17, 2011 we had a wonderful durian party at Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi Hall, in Butterworth, Penang.
The party started after the seminar(SEMAIAN) that we attended at the hall.
We were going back to the hotel when the uncles from ‘GABUNGAN’ brought us a very big bag of durians.
They said the durians were from orchards in Balik Pulau where the best durians from Penang come from.
The durians were very sweet and tasty.
We had the party outside the seminar room, facing a nice green field, full of pigeons.
It was the best durian party that I ever had
To eat the durians, we must first open the fruits 🙂
On Sunday, I went to the Seminar Mendaulat Islam – Agama Negara (SEMAIAN) at the Dewan Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi, Jalan Bagan Luar, Butterworth, Pulau Pinang (Penang).
We went to Penang on Saturday and come back to Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
During the seminar, I helped my father to bring things from outside to inside the seminar hall.

Associate Professor Dr. Aziz Hanafi(Dekan Kuliah Syariah Kolej Universiti Insaniah-KUIN)
