first issue of reka

first issue of reka

interesting.

more government bodies are now keen on publishing their own magazine brand.

reka , the first issue of Majlis Rekabentuk Malaysia is now out. havin set my eyes on it at the Nile Bookstore, Kl Central i decided to get myself a copy. the price is affordable, tho (RM4.90). when i browse over the magazine…i just realize something.

I’ve wasted myself rm4.90 for a copy of crap! @*#$**(%R#$

I bought the magazine with a hope i will get something informative about art & design in Malaysia, to widen my knowledge and to boost my idea in this industry. It definitely did not meet my expectation at all. The content was all about a compilation of crap interviews with a number of designers,entrepreneur and trader ( more on furniture design, tho they did not tell this issue focus more on furniture thingy).

Their works, their life and their dreams.  crap.

They better publish interviews/biographies compilation instead of a magazine. May be they need to do research to understand what is the thing called magazine, what makes a magazine a magazine before thinking of publishing one. anyway, is that all ‘rekabentuk’ means? furniture designing?they did not tell that the issue¬† somebody please answer me. I went thru MRM’s website but they seems to be underneverendingrenovation.

Gosh..pleaaseee… impart the reader with informations, news, ideas, etc. I would be pleased to trade RM49 instead of RM4.90 for great information if that’s all it takes to give the best information. Yes…it is forgiven if the interviews include the designer’s study & research sequences. but I much to my despair…this issue failed to fulfill my thirst for local design info.

The Forgotten Pillar

Bull fighting. Is a famous cultural event in Spain.

But we have it in Malaysia too.

Better known as ‘laga kerbau’, it was once a famous game in Kedah. Kerbau was considered the most valuable herd, imported from Siam through Padang Besar train station circa 1667-1940. During these period, wealth of a person in Kedah was measured with the numbers of buffalo he owns. This farm animal was used to work in the paddy field, however some fierce buffalo are nurtured to be ‘kerbau laga’ to fight in annual ‘Laga Kerbau’ until it was banned circa 1930.

The venue of the annual event (Laga Kerbau) was at a field in front of Istana Anak Bukit. Yes. it’s my home area. The base of my home was the stage for the Sultan and his ministers to sit and watch the match. The pillars of the stage are still there around my house, which my granddad think was beneficial to keep when he built the house.

Years ago when my grandma was still alive, I remembered it became her place to put the ‘batu giling’ when makin her own cili giling and the place she cut the coconuts. However these days, with my busy working parents, the stones just sit there alone as nobody are using them for any activities more.

Here’s some pic of them…should be six of them but I wonder where the other one had gone. may be hidden somewhere in bushes i just couldn’t see
