Beauty of the day – Classic theme in Window Vista

No one told me that I could change to the classic theme in Window Vista and the programs work a lot faster with it… I really didn’t know about it until Kah Weng told me. Thanks!!

It is no big deal but it saves my day when it is so frustrated to wait for the Photoshop and Autocad tasks to load in big scale. I couldn’t find any words to describe my excitement now….

p.s. By the way, Kah Weng and I have known each other since 6 years old. We attended the same kindergarten, primary and high school. It is 16-year friendship.

Circles of knowledge

Working with Alex is stressful!!!

“The more I know, the more I realise that I don’t know.”

Listen to his comments and opinions on the issues from the political news to the economy changes; from the cultural and history events to the evolutionary theories; from the tragic news to the human and technology developments; from the life philosophy to the community ideology; from the buildings structure and details to the architectural ideas; from his nostalgic memories to his dreams and plans; and from his daily routine to the studio works… he makes me feel stupider, especially during the critical time when the final crit is on next week.

Circles of knowledge

So, the outer ring of my knowledge circle is growing when the area of the inner ring is expanding. There are more things that I don’t know and therefore I feel dumber…

5’o clock in the morning

What a surprise… previously, it is normal if I went to bed at 5am but today I get out of bed at 5am. If back in Malaysia, I will definitely go to the “mamak” stall once the sky is bright, and order a piece of “roti kosong” and a glass of milo ais for breakfast, either alone or with friends who are willing to come out at this time.

But in Ghent… hmm… I just go online and blog.
No mamak….. 🙁

Convenient dream

I had a convenient dream last night….

I dreamed that I flew back to Malaysia because Kenny was organising a clubbing night out for the “kinkians” gathering. The dream started with me already arrived home in the noon. The party was supposed to be at the night of the same day.

I reached home with my luggage in the living room. Things in the house did not seem to change much, only with some replacement of new household items. My sisters had new haircuts and were wearing clothes that did not seem familiar to me. The two youngest sisters have grown taller. My cute little Kelisa was still there –now already my sister’s. And she has also taken my room.

In the dream, I was supposed to stay for only one or two days in Malaysia. I did not have the intention to meet my relatives or friends, only to go back to see my family and attend the party. My dad thought that it was ridiculous for me to spend RM2200 to fly back only for few days. I didn’t know how I got the exact amount of the ticket price. It was either I was rich in the dream that I could fly anywhere as I wished or a reflection of my impulsiveness character that I just wanted to fly back even for few days.

In the end of the dream, it was about Wai Sun coming over to my house and helped me with the return air ticket online booking. We were going thru the dates and time of the flights. He was also persuading me to come back few days later as I was having two weeks holiday. As soon as I decided to come back a week before my classes start, because I needed to finish my design studio work, my phone alarm rang,

And then I was half awake, looking at the surroundings and realised that I am back in Ghent instantly. I was disappointed that I couldn’t spend longer time at home but excited as I did not need to spend more than 14 hours on air to reach back here.

It was time to get out of bed and get ready to studio.

Dream is the only way I can meet and feel the closure with my family members now. And it is convenient that I don’t need to spend money and time to travel and can see them instantly.

Ok, I know it sounds a bit ridiculous.

Eiffel Tower extension proposal

Perhaps we should go to Paris in summer to see the before and after Eiffel Tower architecture; just in case the tower management company La Societe d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel (SETE) approves the proposal.

Eiffel Tower – now

It is not something new. It was reported in March.

The above computer generated images is a proposal project by Serero Architects, but claimed mistakenly by numerous reports as a project that has won the open competition when the images are spread across the internet. Even the mainstream media made mistake in their reports.

After all, maybe Paris is a place that I shall go when I stand on my own two feet. It is not cheap to pay for the museums and art galleries entrance fee thou.

How to lose a guy and not my mind

How to lose a guy in 10 days… Be super emotional!!!

How to lose a guy in 1 day… Kill him!!! 😛


I thought I would have something to write. There are so many things in my mind -design studio work, internship application, self-finance support during year out, accommodation for August onwards in UK, portfolio for RIBA 1, architecture history essay, study trips reports, readjust my sleeping habit and daily routine, summer travel plans… and the weirdo.

Ok, back to Autocadding…
