AFF Suzuki Cup Poster

Bola Tango zaman dulu. Aku belajar lukis bola tu dari meniru kartunis Ujang.

Satu jurus 3 stroke. Macam mana nak maintain stroke aku pun tak tau. Susah kalau skill ikut mood. Mood ada dia tak de. Susah.

MAHA 2012 - Too Big

Malaysian Agriculture, Horticulture and Agro-tourism International (MAHA 2012) terlalu
besar. Nama pun MAHA ! seriously, terlalu besar.Too big for comfort. Was not expecting to
be comfortably driven through an air cond-ed hall but I had this botanical garden expectation.
Or at least sungai buloh nursery feel.

I was at the first MAHA event when they re-launched it some 10 years ago in Bukit Jalil. That
was big but all in one place. You get to walk to all places - big like education fair, pc fair and
all those indoor exhibition. But MAHA here in Serdang is huge.

Parking Queue
On a week day (tapi cuti sekolah la) at 935am, I was stuck in a jam 1 km before the entrance.
What's the problem? Nothing. RELA and police and volunteers were everywhere. Its just too
many cars and drivers was curious and first timers. Slow.

Buying Plants
Aku ingat nak beli pokok buah. Walking to the entrance realised that I might not be able to get
to buy anything. Maybe nangka or jambu dalam plastic. That's it. Because, I won't be able to
carry those stuff i will be buying to the car. Too far.

At a glance, without any haggling, the plants sold at the entrance of the events were way
too expensive. What can be bought at RM10 at Sungai Buloh is RM18 to RM20. Limau purut
yang kecik tu pun RM10.

Children and Old People
Do not bring your kids and parents to MAHA. They won't be able to walk through the event.
Pakciks were struggling nak naik tractors and trams. Budak-budak berlengas. Nampak

Jeans, Power Rangers and Jersi Harimau Malaya.
Stalls, especially those at the entrance sells stuff unrelated to MAHA. It's like walking through
a pasar malam. Should this area sells MAHA thingy, then I wouldn't have to be walking all the
way a few kilometres inside.

Tapi kena bagi pujian jugak pada organiser. Ramai volunteers or orang-orang MAHA yang
memakai baju hijau dok membantu explain mana nak pergi dan lain-lain.

I would suggest do what a lot of other events do. Separate the days for professionals and
orang awam. Orang macam aku tak mungkin pergi tengok nak beli tractor dan chain saw.
Atau benih rumput dari Netherland. Atau benih ikan main ribu-ribu.

Make the show for public a smaller place. That could be a family place. Besar-besar zoo tu
dah le.

MAHA is a good event. But too big.

Wawasan Makan Tengahhari 2 Ringgit

Yang Panjang dan Yang Gemuk

Hari aku tak boleh kaler

PM meletakkan wawasan untuk menjadikan makanan tengah hari (nasi, lauk ikan atau ayam, sayur dan air suam) berharga 2 ringgit... atau kurang dari tu. Maka kita kena produce makanan sendiri. Maka teknologi diperlukan untuk memudahkan dan mempercepatkan tanaman padi, penternakan dan perikanan. Maka sistem diperlukan untuk melancarkan transportation dan pengagihan. Setiap kawasan peumahan ada sayuran sendiri. Pertanian di celah jalan raya. Penternakan dalam KLCC. Memaksimakan tenaga matahari, air hujan dan petir. Pengurusan dan kitaran semula pembuangan sisa makanan dan bahan organik. Penambatan harga ringgit pada emas mutlak. Air sisa aircond dan udara panasnya. Jarak hijau antara pembangunan. Pemaksimaan tenaga muda. Dan puasa.

MONASH Caulfield

This is Monash U Caulfield taken from er.. i really can't recall.. err.. my design faculty building.
Year 2003. I don't think the green is still around. Not really sure.

The Art & Design faculty building is really designed and as a designer, or an art student, you will surely be proud of relating to it. Functional yet elegantly designed. WHY, do I not have any pictures of the interior is something I am regretting now.

PPAS - Perbadanan PerPustakaan Awam Selangor

i briefly remember reading it somewhere. then some months back my brother told me to go to this huge library is shah alam. ive been seeing the signage for sometimes now, but i always thought it refereed to the old shah alam library in the city. some months ago i reluctantly decided to bring the family there. the sign led us to a golf course and a housing area. not really determined, we turned back and off we went to sungai buloh beli pokok..!

Let's hope we can build more libraries with eeeasier access to the public. like shopping malls.

then a friend suggest me taking the children to PPAS. there's a 4D movie show - he says.

and yesterday, i was impressed with this huge building over looking a lake, with no parking space left.

Children, Adolescent and Adults level.

i remember my library at primary school. we spend a lot of time there watching jackie chan movie after exams. my beloved teacher was sickly and she had to go to some treatment. and all i can recall is we watched jackie chan's movie.

The boys trying to get to the ducks. And sampah sikit-sikit.

i didn't do much reading in the secondary school either. we would go in the library, to the far end of the library, pulled out an old looking book and would see the label inside. Oh! this book was last borrowed in 1976! 15 years ago? This one in 1974! Look.. this one has never been taken out! And this was only read once. in 1967! That's about it.

No caption.

and on another occasion i remember going to the library because the art teacher was grading the marks there and i wanted to get comments from him. or did he called us?

it was not until i was doing my master degree that i discovered reading and library. i found a lot of interesting magazines, journals, science thingy, confusing art theories and amusing 'why would i want to know this' kind of books - you know.., books on grass, sleeping pattern and such. i spend a lot of time reading. (national standard) and looking at pictures.

I had 2 fridge. I read a lot.

PPAS is huge. we love the children area. the deco is nice. there's an artificial tree so you can have that artificial experience of reading in a garden.

the 4D movie is limited to adult only. actually to those above 130cm.

Nice. Horse reading.

theres a restaurant if im not mistaken. a gym down there and a signage to a bookstore. only the signage.
the library opens out to a beautiful lake with 2 clans of ducks. the browns and the whites. each with 4 members. pokok hotdog and orkid air. but why must we trow rubbish every where?

The boys running - see.

the brief visit had already taken 2 hours. we had not much time, and the boys were starting to run around.. so i plan another next time all by myself.

this article doesn't really help in anything.

Kelab Veteran UMNO

Allahyarham Tun Ghafar was still alive then.
One of my early job as a graphic designer. Mostly Jalot's work. My Jedi master of graphic design. See how a lot of my work today is a strong influence of this type of design.

Textile Art

I had a rugged look. Worn out t-shirt and shabby slack. But the colours i play with.. huh!

A semester 6 fibre project. 15 years later I produced a documentary title The Queen of Fabric: Songket. Brought tears to my eyes.
Not really.

Top 23 Blog in Malaysia

Aku sedia maklum aku tak trendy. Aku tidak buat benda trendy. (Kecuali fb) Maka, secara logicnya, aku tak boleh me'reka' benda yang trendy dan menjadi ikutan ramai. Namun sedikit sebanyak aku duduk (atau terduduk) dalam bidang yang perlu menarik perhatian umum - secara pukal. Perlu disukai ramai.

Semalam aku jumpa satu list 23 Top Blogs in Malaysia.
Hampir kesemuanya aku rasa tak boleh layan.

Romi - Si Penglipur Mimpi

Sebab tu idea aku keluar macam ni.
Sapa nak layan..?

Potret Diri

Kadang-kadang terlalu teliti, terover organise, terlampau fikir, terlebih faham pun tak guna jugak. Tak terganjak dibuatnya. Kadang-kadang tersangat pandai dan termakin efficient boleh jadi benci.
Elok duduk sedang-sedang.
Dari gambar lama-lama.
Ketika pandai sangat-sangat.

Rain Forest

Hand painted t-short design. Open silk screen. Those were the days when my 'painting' was appreciated. Assigned by Rusli Hashim Fine Art Gallery, KL, I did around 20 pieces of these. Titled Rain Forest. Each different. Another 10 pieces of hand drawn pictures, birds and flowers.

Early 2000, digital camera was rare. (digital camera which you need to insert a floppy disk- remember?) My brother had one but he wasn't around. I'd have had more of the art tshirt taken.

Make My Day

Sometimes a simple honest word of praise can really brighten you up. It comes from a total stranger via the facebook page i am maintaining. A 3 - 4 words sentence. Nothing too flashy. But I am beaming. (So much so that i decided to write.)

And then i am thinking, what if Haiya BidDoa goes unpredictably popular..?

Again, one of my old work. There were 2 of this series. This was shown atShah Alam Open Exhibition. Another one was sent to Pertandingan Karya seni Kreatif Kebangsaan PNB (PNB Art Competition) around 1997/1998. Didn't get to win or exhibited.

This work is now 'menanti pecah hancur dalam stor.'
