Lace Hill, A Living Green Mountain Building For Armenia

Hello, how's your day people? I'm doing good here. College is in the corner, and I'm looking forward to it. Anyway, I just found out this very cool and fantastic building. Enjoy and do leave some comment about it.

Instead of designing a large glass-faceted building for a new mixed-use development in Yerevan, Armenia, Forrest Fulton Architects came up with a giant living man-made mountain! The entire facade of the hill-shaped building is covered in native plants, which act to absorb heat, filter air and water, and provide habitat to animals and insects, while the entire surface is irrigated with recycled gray water. Inspired by traditional Armenian lace needlework, Lace Hill, is punctuated with recessed windows, has interior voids that act as cooling towers, and includes many other sustainable building strategies.

Lace Hill is a proposed 85,000 sq meter (900,000 sf) mixed-use development with a hotel, office space, retail, restaurants, and apartments.

Advertlets screening of Nightmare On Elm Street

Just came back from Advertlets screening of Nightmare On Elm Street. Thanks to Ellie Chee and Josh Lim for the ticket.

I was been searching Ellie to cam photo, but can't find her around the GSC. After movie, I met Josh in the toilet. Ahaha, you guys will think why is it in the toilet and not else where. I drink too much during the movie, and it's so cold inside there, that's the reason I'm rushing to the toilet. Josh told me that Ellie is not feeling very well, can't attend today.

This is for Ellie,
She is going for a H1N1 vaccination jab tomorrow. Get well soon! We will meet at some other event.

Best regards, Guan Yi.;​​​​​​​​​​​

12 Things to Remember

I just found out something about inspiration, and I found out it's actually quite useful for everyone of us in our daily life. I've listed it down here as 12 things to remember.
  1. Life is short. If you are stressed, worry, eat unhealthy, or focus on the negative  "stuff" ...  your life will end up being even shorter.
  2. Your trouble of today are only temporary. Look for the silver lining.   If you look hard enough, you will find the silver lining, and it will make all the difference in how you perceive your situation and how you feel. 
  3. When things are good in your life, they will seldom become great. We rarely make changes when things are good.   Only when we hit rock-bottom, are we forced to make changes... and that will lead you to greatness. So if you have hit rock-bottom, hold on to your socks and start celebrating because... your greatest life is just around the corner!
  4. Stop starring at the closed door. (the negative stuff), search for all the open doors (opportunities) all around you. There are many. 
  5. You are perfect. Regardless of what have you been told, what people think, or how people treat you - you are perfect exactly the way you are. 
  6. The only opinion that counts is your own opinion of yourself.
  7. You already have all the answer - they are just lost in the mental fog. Clear your mind of all clutter and negative chatter. Meditate, exercise, journal, and take time for yourself to reflect.
  8. Don't follow the crowd. It will only take you places where others want to go. 
  9. Today is tomorrow, so stop procrastinating. Get out there and start living your greatest life.
  10. Be different, be bold, be loving, and always follow your heart.
  11. Be conscious of what you are feeding your mind.
  12.  When the going gets tough... GIVE
No matter how bad things are, there is always someone, somewhere, in a worse situation. Give your time, money, or even just a compliment.

Make A Difference!;​​​​​​​​​​​
