KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters/AFP) - Dressed in a headscarf and full-length robe, 24 year-old Nurnadille Edlena takes notes intently as the man before her introduces himself.

The two are at Halal Speed Dating, a new matchmaking event in Kuala Lumpur that is helping Malaysian Muslims find partners in a largely conservative society where courtship is frowned upon and marriages are often arranged.

Promising an Islamic courtship in a "dignified manner," Halal Speed Dating requires that women be chaperoned and that all participants ultimately plan to wed.

Its founders say most of their clients hope to find a spouse.

The first time in May, when about 80 people joined, and the second time last week with 60 hopefuls.
