Life of an Architect-first quarter of 2016

On average, 2 out-of office meetings each week, 2 outstation trips fortnightly with at least 1 stay-over, and there are design sketches then comes design reports, minutes, project documentations, presentations, details drawings, work programmes..and it is not only referring to 1 project only but multiple of it. Current project, new proposals, previous proposals, tender and more reports.

I hardly use much CAD or Revit nowadays and most of the time it was limited to zooming-in and zooming out or checking the dimensions.

At my level, it's all about strategising, coordinating and management. The only pure architecture bits that left with me are sketches.

And I have been neglecting my blog, my other journal..and most of all, my ownself.

Marking places

The numbers of these memorabilia has multiple for the past 3 years and it has now covers the main front of our fridge door and also the side panels of it. It represent the places that we have been. Some, represent places that we have never been but was given as souvenirs by friends and family member.


Experiencing Coliseum

Good food with down the memory-lane-kind of-setting. We dine at the original Coliseum Steakhouse itself in Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman just to ensure that we have set the 'benchmark of the taste' before going to other branches.

Brilliant day for roadtrip

Morning drive wonders


Asam Rom


Lonely drive

Jerantut is some 190km away from Kuala Lumpur. Depending on traffic condition around Kuala Lumpur, which would add up to total hours of your journey,  driving to Jerantut from the Gombak Toll would only takes an average of 1 and half hours via the East Coast Highway. It's 45 minutes from Gombak Toll to Temerloh Exit and another 45 minutes to Jerantut Town. But, mind you, it would be a lonely drive once you exit Temerloh Toll to get to Jerantut as there are not many vehicles on the road.

Jerantut, the town is quite small but the main streets are quite organised. You can basically have a complete tour around within a day unless you wish to get to Taman Negara which is link through Jerantut itself. There are a lot of local eateries, so you wont be hungry but should you are not fancy of local dishes, you can find a Domino Pizza outlet within the town, or the KFC.

This would be my third time to Jerantut. Not expecting much, as it is work basically
