Haiti Competition

This is my first individual challenge that won the competition. After 1 week of preparation and submission, I received an email last Friday. My entry has been selected into top twelve where they give me a chance to present my work in New York City.

The most interesting part of this competition is no monetary awards. Haiti-Habitat will seek out the best cross-sections to yield a maximum benefit to Haiti. This is exactly what I want to do in the future. I wish this is my best Christmas gift to all the Haitian.

All the best in my stage two-Charette.

Fingers crossed.

Thesis Year

Finally, this is my final year of architecture course in UTM. I finished my Thesis-Stage 1 last month. It was an incredible and yet horrible semester. I believe that most of the architecture student worries about their topic, critical thinking and final outcome. Anyway, what I can say is enjoy your topic, share your topic with your friends, try more experiment and do it regularly. Don’t put yourself in a selfish world and lock yourself in a tiny brain.

Talking about my thesis, it is an Ecumenical Centre in UTM- interreligious worship place towards a united and progressive community in Malaysia context. After all the researches and studies, I came out with three design approaches.

My first attempt

Mutation into second attempt

Final design..Anyway, this is just part of the imagination. I believe that I'm gonna to change all the design in Stage 2.

Throughout the year

Hello! Saxowall,

I went to lots of places with my new babe (D3000) throughout this year. It is kind of fantastic that I can capture every single moment in my lifetime. At the same time, I am growing up. From internship (torture by the Japanese guy), trips and final year studio, I start to look at the truth from my inner heart.

Recently, I read a diary from Frank Anne. I never realize that a diary could be so powerful and impressive. Just like Benjamin Button’s diary…record every single moment in their life. Fortunately, I have a camera to capture everything from my perspective. My writing skill is sucks..haha..

Thesis year is a peaceful year where there are only five world wars in a semester. Thanks to Sammy and Ming as well. Without your inspiration, my thesis would go smooth and steady. Talking about my friends, some of them are getting stubborn. Don’t you understand? Anyway, best friends are still around.

Again, I have lots of dreams that haven’t come true yet. I wish I can be selfish guy that can ignore all the responsibility and commitment. Feel sorry to my parents. I am not an ordinary guy that only thinking of money, big house and wife.

OK..I want to stop here, See you..
