It's been another month spending my sweetest sem break in Kuee Architect again. I was actually counted the days im with the firm and it is already a total of 6 months since last March. My position? Well kinda awkward to tell coz i really dunno. Firstly was because im part/full timer depending on my holiday, i did 3D visualizing, layout design, CAD drawings, master plan psd, interior designs, etc.. so i self-claimed myself as trainee design architect. LOL (not even with the part I yet)

This time there's a little different for me compare to the last time when i was working in the office. I met some new colleagues,  and they are pretty well skilled. A little higher level to push for my renderings and i realized my interior rendering wasn't really THAT good. That's where people said about ' there is always another mountain that is higher than a mountain'. Make it this way, competition is a push for better work. 

What i think is the best part was to enjoy scribbling and sketching and get ideas for a vasthu sastra concept house. Yeap, it was my 1st time attempt for an Indian family dwelling. It was a enjoyable process to see how the rooms are oriented into certain direction. Great to know that the client is happy with it. More works to be done on amendments, models, interiors and more for this project in the next few months.

Ok. Back to the 'part-time' architecture student mood next month. XP

身为典范的独男,常围绕着我的,莫过于一些称为‘友人’的鸟事。之所以为鸟事,是因为朋友之间的事情其实不必多问,多管,或多三八的。但最近历经了蛮多事情,像星杰曰:‘你本是自己拿来贱,为什么处处用真心对别人?这样的人往往会被利用而已。’ 看似对我的小小启示。

I have never heard of any Seksan's work in Ipoh until I had overlooked a photo posted by my boss about Sekeping Kong Heng. It looks sexy! oyea, it was located at Ipoh's old town, one of the familiar roads that I used to pass by. It quickly triggers my interest to visit the place.

I was lucky to have it opened for visitors like me and my friend. At first we had a hard time locating the entrance of the building ( well frankly it wasn't really obvious ) that we have to go thru a narrow corridor until we saw the wire mesh gate. Friendly receptionist welcomed us and we were allowed to take pics as we wanted.

The 1st thing you will see is a communal space with book shelf, right next to the staircase. alot of built-in furnitures, mostly made up of concrete and metal. The water tap with a big ball made up of concrete had caught my attention. 

It was an old post-war shophouse located at the town. Mr.Ng Sek San and his group were then contributed their efforts reviving the old buildings, putting on new ideas into the deteriorating structure. Yeap you can see greens all over every corner of the building. Smartly arranged. Too bad i could only took a glimpse of the suites unless im going in for a stay. 

The concept was natural ventilation as you can see the suites are well-opened. There's lot more Ng's covers on the cafe, TV room and gathering spaces on the 2nd floor which i found them really cool . Very well ventilated, and there's no AC installed throughtout the building except for the suspended glass bed on the featured room ( too bad the place was closed)

I personally a green lover. In fact I appreciate it very much as Ng was not demolishing the old things but to give them new values. They were mentioned that because of the Sekeping Kong Heng, its neigbouring unit has started their way in renovations and replanning to make things better. The only thing i was wondering is that there's a big space at the back of the house left empty. I heard that it will be used as a craft gallery sort of function. We will see about that very soon.

“What we did was just to add value to them and give them a longer lifespan and hopefully, also contribute a bit to the revitalisation of an abandoned and forgotten part of Ipoh Old Town.- Ng Sek San

It was an early-wake-up Saturday morning as I gotta work at the office. My affable boss Shyuan asked us to leave earlier and finish the work at home. Yupp i was free to go eat!

My mind directed me to Tammy's Kitchen again, well maybe a quiche can make the day worth something. haha. It was my second visit to the restaurant and I can't wait for the food. I reached the place like 2.30pm, and was surprised by the crowd inside. Seem that the restaurant had gain some reputation. I noticed some of the customers are here just to try a dish or two but not for a proper meal. So do I.

This time i ordered Turkey quiche. I wanted to try smoke salmon quiche but it was all sold out. No luck. But still looking forward to this awesome pastry.

Expectedly, the quiche is really delicious. A brilliant mixture of turkey breast, sliced mushroom onions, smashed egg and some other stuff that i'm not too sure what are they. The outer layer was little smooth and crunchy. It totally blew me away. And the fresh cut veges are served to balance out my nutrients intake.
I know it was a little expensive but you can always bring a bunch of your peeps and have a try on it. Seriously you won't be regret. They served lot more Western cuisine like steaks, spaghetti, cakes, pies and stuff. Nothing much special on the beverages though.

The place is located somewhere not too obvious i would say. I still remember the 1st time i went, my friend Sheng couldn't find the way nor the location of shop. And the shop envelope was not really inviting, perhaps it gives a low-maintained impression. Well I must say it will be perfect if the owner upgrade his restaurant's ambience and furniture. Do something! But for the food, i would really rate 5 stars for them.

No 7, Hala Bandar Baru Tambun 18,
