According to Ismail, he has pass the exam at Greece and will received Diploma FIDE Trainer (National Instructor). The diploma certificate  will be send by FIDE trough Malaysian Chess Federation.

One interesting story from Ismail. He inform me that some of the Malaysian parents who accompany their children at Greece missed the Malaysian food so much. Lucky for them, Ismail Ahmad cook some foods ( nasi lemak/kari ayam/sambal telur!) with spices  he brought all the way from KL :)
