‘In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. By Time, indeed humanity is in a state of loss. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of truth and in the mutual teaching of patience’ (Surah al-`Asr, 103:1-3)
"Professional Architect lives almost by faith. When called upon he can do the job without fear or favour. He possesses aspecialized skill and lives by a code of ethics cloaked in honour andintegrity. He is expected to speak his mind and give his views. Whenfaced with absolute wrong, he can resolutely disagree and walk away." quote from THE PROFESSIONAL MAN by Ar Dr Tan Loke Mun PRESIDENT PAM

I was taken to my previous past when I saw this video taken a couple of years ago. I still feel as if it was only yesterday that this event took place. It makes me realised how fast time flies by. Ironically, we are the ones who wanted things to happen in the quickest time. We want to design things within the quickest time, quickly get the "architect" title, quickly become rich, quickly own a big house, quickly possess a luxury car. Yet we sometimes fail to realise how precious time is.

This video was recorded during my busiest time of the year. I was literally working for two design practice; one firm during the day and the other at night. I was always away from my family every weekend. But, on that very special day I simply dropped everything and tried to stop the time to be with my friends and beloved family. In the midst of celebrating my special day, I became aware that I should enjoy every breath that I take in my life with my loved ones better. You will never know for sure when you'll stop breathing and enjoying the smell of your kids' hair or sleeping beside the heat of my loved one or even maybe sharing the day with your friends.

"Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it." Fyodor Dostoevsky Russian novelist (1821 - 1881)
