The Serambi....

The Serambi or a sort of a patio, is always part of the traditional Malay house...It is built out front of the house, thus it is actually a place outside the main house...A place where folks would sit to chat and yarn in the evening till late night without disturbing the others inside the house...I had this specially built for wanting the feeling of a traditional home that I once live during my childhood...In modern home this special function space have been totally left out, what a lost to the tradition.....What I did was just to give me the environment of the kampong [village] that I once live.... Now this space is love by all who visit my home...And friends would rather sat there and chat rather then getting into the house proper...The Serambi...That my friends is the wisdom of the old....They do know how to enjoy life....Posted by Hello

huyyoo.... kemasnya. Mesti cucu2 Pak Idrus jenis2 berdisiplin. I used to enjoy lepaking at my serambi until a couple of katak bulan keep on dropping in & sometimes play hide & seek somewhere near the book cabinet or flower pots. Yuckss and yes I hate them!!!

Zer, thanks, we taught our children to love the arts and the appreciation of all things arts, now our children just carry on with the tradition, so dah sampai ke cucu [it has pass down the grands], it is for the love of all things arts that whats makes our life so beautiful.. Life would be dull indeed without all those things of beauty...

I am the sort of guy who loves to taste different things. Presently I am manufacturing my personalized solar panels. I'm managing it all alone without the help of my men. I'm utilizing the internet as the only path to acheive that. I encountered a truly amazing website that explains how to contruct photovoltaic panels and so on. The internet site explains all the steps needed for photovoltaic panel building.

I'm not sure about how correct the information given there iz. If some guys over here who had xp with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I would extremely appreciate it, cauze I really would love to try solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. You guys are great.
