RAMADHAN & SYAWAL Special Episodes of ISLAMiC FiNANCE@The Capital TV

Interesting week shooting for my 1st ever Ramadhan and Syawal special episodes for the ISLAMiC FiNANCE tv programme at Channel 127, Hypp TV-UNIFI. The programme needs to "stockpile" for the Raya holidays period and ensure continuity in its tx (transmission) time every Thursdays at 10PM.

Prof.Dato' Dr.Sidek Baba was the Guest Speaker for the RAMADHAN special which was shot around 4pm on Tuesday. It was a pleasure to meet up with him after all these years as the last time I met him was during my student days in London when a gathering for Malaysian students studying in UK was held in Al-Muntada Centre. On Thursday, it was the turn of Assoc.Prof.Dr.Zaharuddin Abdul Rahman to be interviewed by me as the Speaker for ISLAMiC FiNANCE's SYAWAL festivities episode.

NOW, I know it's not as easy as it looks on tv when shooting in the fasting month especially if one is fasting and have to act as if it was already Syawal in the respective programme. Details of the Ramadhan and Syawal episodes are as follows:-
