4pm on saturday evening.i'm in ur white cardi.having this meal, which reminds me of you.sitting all on my own, and everything just came, flash to flash.
the first message
the first conversation..how i make a fool of myself, will us remember that in the future?
the day i hear ur voice,
that stupid jokes, that riddle.ikan apa ada bulu ketiak?
the song,those nicknames.
saw u for the first time....
the first song u sang, the same song that will keep on playing..
seeing you for the first time, just those feeling i always imagine..just the same as the love song keeps on playing..
and the first step i've made..hoping that u'll once hold my hand, not to let me disperse..

lifestyle designer.sounded so the glamor. i've been assigned to re-design spaces for a typical square feet terrace houses, and all the client want is something very different..what they call it, the 'bang' factor that can attract buyers to grab it without hesitate.
looking backward on link-houses design from the 70's where the main concern for that era is not yet design, but more as a place to cater everything under the same roof.when i say everything, i really mean everything.
let say a single storey link houses, 24' x 65'.3 bedrooms max, with 2 bathrooms, a living, kitchen and dining and a big car porch.fully covered for 2 cars.in term of spaces, i do believe that it's more than enough.luxurious may i say for even a family with 5 children.it is a simple open planning layout with less partition here and there.and even easy for the parents to supervise their children's movement when they're not so young anymore(teens).
not saying that it is less deigned, please bear that in mind.
back to what my client's 'bang' factor.to design something out the routine, and she came out with an interesting idea.to insert a greenery inside, an isolated room for teen whereby they won't have to bother their parents if they came home late at night..
as she keep on talking, my mind were floating...juvana, teens, family and if i have a child, i want to know what they're doing.not to repeat the same mistakes i've made, to make mistakes that won't hunt them for the rest of their life.
and at the end of the day..i'll just re-design that lifestyle back.so i'll know what's happening under my roof, on every single thing that i care.who's staying at my son's room, whether my maid is planning to escape with my households or is my daughter is sneaking using the back lane for a secret date with her lover.
