Sara 'wins' a prize

Sara and Freddie Lo receiving the Commendation at the PAM Awards

In March this year, I submitted two projects for the PAM (Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia) Awards 2015 - this is the annual architecture awards given by the Malaysia Architect's Institute. One of the projects submitted was the Addition and Alteration of a Guardhouse at Leisure Farm Resorts - a tiny project 63 sq.m. which eventually won a commendation from the jury.  Freddie and I were glad that it won something; he - because he spent time refining its design and implementation and me - because this continues the trend of winning a prize each year since 2007.

Travel sketches - Georgetown

I thought it would be a good idea for Sean to travel with me to Penang when I visit my job-sites - he could eat some nice food, meet my friends at work and we can do some sketching. And if time allows, we can talk about his studies and plans for next year.

Getting there

At the end of May, the first floor of the shop house was gutted and cleaned up. The floorboards are strong in some places, springy in others and rotten through in most - they will be removed and replaced. The wall plaster was bulging with damp - they will be removed as well BUT not replaced.
