welcome back

Finally I get back my access to my own blog. Funny isn't it when my formal email was started using google apps and everything was detected and get entangled. Thanks to the ummail administrator who did a good job in advising the right things to do. It has been a year since my last posting really.

International Conference on Management 2011

This was me during the International Conference on Management 2011, held at Hydro Hotel, Batu Ferringhi Penang in July this year. In case you are wondering what an academic is doing in a conference like this, well to be frank, academic always needs to learn something, lawyers also need to learn something new, not just things in the plate in front of them. In the first place, I was too busy to look around and find alternatives or new thing to add in my already fulled plate, but somehow I caught this advertisement and decided why not I tried working out on something looks "management" enough for this event. This was when my friend Ilhaamie and Zulfikri, my Phd candidate came in. We worked together on a paper entitled Justice Delayed is Justice Denied: Divorce case Management in Shariah Court. We were so excited to finish the paper so that I would have enough time prepare for the presentation. Mind you, all presenters in this ICM have a background on quantitative methodology and analysis and I think I learned a lot from this ICM. What can I do when it comes to quantitative data? Nothing I guess, this is not my cup of tea or whittard coffee, hahaha. Mine would be more on qualitative, if you can name it...actually it is more of legal research and legal analysis. oh.. and a little bit of social scientific and humanities kind of analysis and perspective. You see, I got a problem with methodology...perhaps...Need to go and sharpen my claw...

Relevankah Pelaksanaan Hukum Hudud di Negara kita?

Demikian tajuk forum yang dianjurkan oleh Persatuan Mahasiswa Akademi Pengajian Islam UM pada 24 Oktober 2011 bertempat di DKU. Di hadapan hampir 500 pelajar yang memenuhi Dewan Kuliah Utama itu, saya dan Dr Maszlee Malik (UIA) mengupas pelbagai persoalan berkenaan hudud di negara ini.Perdebatan mengenai kesesuaian hudud di negara bermasyarakat majmuk seperti Malaysia, hanya muncul selepas PAS mengambil alih negeri Kelantan. Sehingga hari ini, perdebatan berkisar tentang beberapa perkara:
1. hudud vs perlembagaan
2. political will vs societal will
3. masyarakat majmuk dan konsep negara Islam
Saya akan jelaskan satu persatu nanti (to be continued)

Munich: The City of Monk

Munich or Munchen in Germany is a lively city. It is known as the city of monk, because there are many churches, cathedrals here. Perhaps, the christianity is strong here...For me, this is a city that you must visit in Germany, not because of its churches but because of other attractions. . It is very accessible. From Salzburg, my husband and I took a train to Munich and there we were, in the heart of the city herself. There are many budget hotels nearby and cheap too. The tourist info is very effective, it's just situated in front of the Houbernhouf (Hbf or station). You can just stroll down the road to Marienplatz and many other interesting places there. Never mind it's winter....

Salzburg, Austria: Where Dreams relive

Winter is not the typical time to travel or sightseeing, except when you really want to bog yourself in the cold. But when Salzburg Global Seminar invited participant form UM and I was encouraged to apply by the then Director of APIUM, I just said "why not", just to try my luck. Then the rest was history. Got a ticket to fly, actually two with my significant other. Five days in Schloss Leopoldskron, in front of a beautiful lake used to film The Sound of Music (remember Julie Andrews in it?). The view is picturesque, it's Alps after all.

Salzburg is an old, small town, yet so livable. It is so piece and calm, the people are nice and seem to be caring with foreigners like me, (not like Parisians who are sombong, racist and arrogant).

Even though the temperature was between 4 degrees to -4 at that time, what to do, takkan nak duduk dalam istana sahaja...
