Watching US presidential election in Malaysia

This morning, I attended the IKMAS-IKON Roundtable on The 2008 US Presidential Election held at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in its Bangi campus. IKMAS is the well-known acronym of UKM's Institute of Malaysian and International Studies while IKON stands for Institute of Occidental Studies. The non-partisan conference, held specifically for observers and analysts of international relations in the academia, military and foreign service, featured Mr. Philip Hoffman of the US Embassy in KL, Professor K.S.Nathan, Professor Joseph Stimpfi and Professor Lee Poh Ping, and it was open by Professor Dr. Tham Siew Yean and chaired by Associated Professor Dr.Rashila Ramli. I am also very happy to have met Professor Rahman Embong again and joined him as well as other for the official lunch in my capacity as the Vice President of the Malaysian Association for American Studies (MAAS).
