Mammatus

I was travelling the highway heading for Ipoh late Friday's evening when it's kind of surreal to look up the sky and actually spot #mammatus clouds. It's quite faint looking 'pouches', but Cloudspotter App verify it as so, lucky me.

Jalan Bijeh Timah Ipoh

I have not been to every nooks and cranny of Ipoh. Not in my teenager years and not in my college days. Not until a few recent years where I got to drive on my own and went around exploring it on my own, that is during the broad daylight; 'curfew' still applies come night.
Anyway, was driving around Ipoh old town and was trying to get myself 'lost of my way' just to explore its architecture. Spotted lots of beautiful old colonial building of gorgeous architecture, and some as unique as this row. I wish I could learn more about this building, the history behind it. Just sharing away with you, till the day I find more information about it.

Wetland Putrajaya

Wetland Putrajaya is actually a nice place where you could enjoy a landscaped nature at its best. One major problem that I feels contribute to the main factor for the Wetland not having the optimum visitors that they're supposed to is that the way their management handle their potential client or visitor. Mainly, the management couldn't care less whether people really wanted to be there or not. The cost for their tram is expensive!

A day in Architect's life


Main agenda of the day was a Coordination Meeting in Lumut, some 300km away from starting-point of the journey, be it my residence or the office.
Additional to that, I was assigned with a couple of stops; one, to meet up with a representative of a potential-client-to-be and two, to collect documents from the branch-office, of which both would be in Ipoh city centre some 10km of distance from each locations.
On top of that, I would also need to fetch my fellow engineer in Rawang just so we could car-pool to the location of main agenda for the day, of course Rawang is located within the path of the main route, so should not be much to complain of rather than I have to take a slight detour into the Rawang exit and not to mention the time that I have to allow-waiting for my fellow engineer to arrive at the meeting-point.
And for this particular day, it's a mother's instinct of calling that I have to entertain my child request to get him to reach school earlier rather his usual bus-ride. Of course he IS early and aren't you pleased that your child wish to be part of school activity as eager as that and you don't give a second thought to whatever delay it may be to your so called 'planned-schedule'.

Of course, I still have the car, and I still could speed at certain point of the hiway, so ...

Golden sunset in Kuala Lumpur

Had an afternoon appointment at The Ampwalk in Jalan Ampang which basically 30km east of Subang. The appointment lasted into the peak-hours, and with the contributing weather factor, it easily multiplies one's ETA. On paper it was listed as 30minutes, but my actual journey this evening took 90minutes altogether. 
Anyway, this 'sinful' shot was taken along DUKE hiway, as the sun setting beautifully at the west horizon. Of course, an abrupt cellca-shot would not do much justice in justifying this particular sunset, but am sharing it away, somehow. Sweet dreams.
