The Weekenders’ Weekends

22 Apr 12

If you would remember, I’d frequently mention how — since returning to Malaysia and entering the 9-6 workforce — life became such a routine. I became a total robot. And also how difficult it was to meet up with old friends. In fact, immediately after coming back here, I felt like I had very few […]

Greener grass, bluer skies?

20 Nov 11

Assalamu’alaikum! Happy Sunday afternoon! Apparently there was a draft post here since June 2011, something about “comparing” life in Malaysia vs. the UK, but I never touched it since then. Here is my attempt at finishing it. Disclaimer: No intent on causing any negativeness or offence of any kind, points do not only apply to […]

Not going to babble anymore about work in this entry (alhamdulillah, at least today, Sunday is free butonlyafterbeingintheofficetill9:30pmyesterday ). Or trying not to. Last weekend we had an extra day off for Aidiladha, which fell on a Sunday. I used the time to […]

You know you’ve left your blog for too long when…

I thought it might’ve originated from the name Rabbi Shmuley; he was always on TV a […]

Juice box camera

5 Aug 11

Or, reasons why my first (sort of, not really, I mean…) experience of using a traditional film camera made me happy. Selingan: Of course we’ve used 35mm film cameras before the dawn of the digital age *man I’m so old *, the generic black kind that uses AA batteries and has a flash, but as […]

Summer is here

5 Jun 11

Sort of, I guess. Since it’s June and all. Photo post this time because we went on a few holiday-ish trips (this always happens when you get guests here. You bring them to nice places, some of which even you’ve never been before. ), although I do have one more portfolio deadline to meet.

And so ends my undergraduate Architecture life

Like I’ve said before… not everything is meant to be a success. Final crit was not too bad, Alhamdulillah, (the events leading to the final crit, however, were the stuff of nightmares  ) but definitely some points to keep in mind. I think the strongest advice was: Do not be afraid to do what you […]
