My personal space...

Above is my personal space in my home. I have just redone the setting. It is a place where I lepak [relax]; reading, switching channels of the TV or listen to good music on the radio and CD. My spouse Asmah has her own space where she watches her favorite TV programs the way she like best. As for me my watching TV times has been reduced to just switching channels, like the News and Documentary. I no longer watch or listen to the local MSM and that kept my mind healthy, thus my health as well. Well folks I am in charge of my times and now take things a day a time and enjoying it along the way. That is the beauty of the golden age, we are now in total control of our times and I do what I like with it. Have a nice day.

Salam Pak Idrus, love the contrast of the red sofa. It looks so cozy. By the way, is the gramophone in good working condition?

Pak Idrus said...

LaLaLOL, thanks for the visit and the good words on my kind of blogging. Yes I do remember you and had visited your site before.

I am indeed glad that you enjoy my writing. It is from the heart with a hope that your generation would learn a thing or two from my writing. At this age what better thing to do then to share my thoughts with the world, trying in a small way in making this world of ours a better place to live and enjoy life.

I hope that you are in the best of health and continue your education to the highest level. For it is only with education could we improve our quality of life and with that help the society a large as well.

Have a nice day.

Rahman Hariri, thanks for the visit and the good words on my personal space as shown in that photograph.

I love interior decoration and from time to time redo the space to give it a new look. I really felt good with that outcome. That Rahman is the way to enjoy life. Turn our home into a four or five star hotel and enjoy living in it all day long. That is what I did, do come over for a visit when you have the time to spare.

Yes the gramophone is still in a good working condition and it works perfect. I still kept all the old records from my youth and would play those record on this gramophone from time to time.

Have a nice day.

A beautiful space, Pak Idrus. I love it that you feel free to do what you want, when you want - as you are right: your time is yours, and yours alone, to make what you want of it.

Pak Idrus said...

Pat, thanks for the visit and the good words on the subject of this posting.

Yes to enjoy life to the fullest we need personal space. Not only the physical space but the freedom of the mind, where one could sit ideally to think or flirt in our mind of all the possibilities to would made our life as colorful as ever. I day dream and flirt and it does give me ideas to enhanced my quality of life.

We must be in control of our time and with that we could have a great life, always.

Have a nice day.

Louis, There is a glitch so I have copy and paste it here.

louis has left a new comment on your post "My personal space...":


Control not only of your time, but of the remote! Now that is happiness.

Pak Idrus said...

Louis, thanks for the visit.

Well as for now I am in control of the remote. But when the grand kids came over it is another story altogether. They would takeover and I have to be in another space for that period of time.

Have a nice day.

Salam Pak Idrus
That's a very cozy lepak space! Even better because it's all yours, since Pn Asmah has her own relaxing area. And you can always alter the arrangement of the furniture & other stuff, at any time and in any manner you want. Seronoknya ada kebebasan begitu. Dan lapangnya hati bila kita yg kawal diri sendiri. Ceria selalu!

YOu have spruced up the place nicely Pak Idrus. I love your patio the best, cooling at night and shady during the day. Love the red sofa too!

Pak Idrus said...

Wiz, thanks for the visit and the good words on my personal space.

I never like the same scene or environment all the time, thus I kept changing things to give it a new look.

That Sofa is actually a Futon which could be converted into an extra bed when needed. Red is one of my favorite colors, thus I selected that color. It does create an atmosphere of coziness in that small space.

Have a nice day.

Pak Idrus said...

Temuk, thanks for the visit and the kind words on my personal space.

Well with such arrangement with Asmah I now have more freedom to enjoy may space my way without getting into a complict of interest with her. At this age it is best that we avoid any conflict for it does not do anyone any good. She has her own space with her own decoder for Astro and I had mine. With that we could enjoy our TV our own way.

Have a nice day.
