“Let go for a drive, mummy!”

The other siblings seem to have outgrown this habit of greeting!

He opened the passenger car door to meticulously push in the skirt of umbrella caught between the closed car door earlier.

What do you like more, “the music or the drive”? “Both”

So we drove on leisurely, I came down to take a shot or two:- see the reflections on the ground? see the bicycles for rent? see iconic twin-towers and library in the background?

Music and leisure driving,. can be therapeutic, indeed!

Where are the kids?

Where are the kids?

The playground is still well kept. Have the children grown too big for these swings and see-saw? Or is it the post pandemic thawing period?

While I am still in a semi- hibernating mode, WordPress is trying to encourage me to keep on blogging and writing!

Flood and future homes – can our national architects do better?

Flood and future homes – can our national architects do better?

I am impressed that a non- architect could come up with such an innovative idea of a home that would float above Terengganu flood water!

It shows that one doesn’t have to be an ‘architect’ to come up with that clever solution!

Houses on tall tilts or float…

For years, I read about flood, evacuation from homes, cleaning up post flood, families staying at allocated centres.

I wonder if architecture of houses should emulate the olden days when houses on tall tilts were built to avoid wild animals or enemies.


Houses on float that would adapt to rise or fall of water levels.

Innovation- House on float?
Fun- oblivions of danger during an impending flood
Houses in a flood

An ‘amazing race’, an emancipating ‘power’ to watch.

Exercise your right to vote

People- led groups outside my country, are rekindling a certain movement; to help postal voters overseas, get their ballots home in time for the national polls on November 19.

In a time like this, it is amazing to watch an emancipating movement led by strangers, yet are countrymen alike, in a team spirit, to see democracy being exercised.

Will democracy prevail eventually?
