Lela dan Manja adalah mangsa di dalam konflik kekejaman yang berkiblatkan dendam. Dua beradik ini
diperlakukan seperti hamba abdi oleh ibu tiri mereka. Lela dan Manja terpisah kerana cuba melarikan diri
daripada ibu tiri mereka selepas melihat di hadapan mata bapa mereka dibunuh dengan kejamnya. Di sinilah
bermulanya kisah tragis dua beradik. Mereka akhirnya bertemu semula di dalam keadaan yang tidak diingini.
Translation - English
Lela and Manja are victims in this tale of revenge. They are treated as slaves by their step-mother. Lela and Manja split ways in their attempt to escape after witnessing their father’s brutal murder. The tragic tale thus begins, and ends when they reunite under unexpected circumstances.

Sanctuary Found

Somewhere Inviting
Skylight filters into the stairway gallery. A kitchen takes center stage,
ingeniously fashioned for cooking and entertaining.

Somewhere Intimate
An enchanting multi-tiered dwelling with private spaces tucked away. Family and dining areas are made cozy by exquisite solid timber flooring, and living areas made lavish with marble slabs.

Somewhere Exceptional
A secured gated and guarded community. Embraced by lush forest greenery,
and yet, just 10 minutes from the most vibrant locales of Mont’ Kiara and Sri Hartamas.

Only at Laman Sierramas West
Translation - Chinese

Chinese to English: Invisible Grille
Source text - Chinese


Translation - English
In a rescue operation at the end of 1993, I witnessed two children who failed to escape from a fire, simply because their family had installed a burglar-proof iron net, which blocked the fire exit. Firemen were forced to bring in a heavy hydraulic shear to break the net in an effort to save the children. However, the few minutes delay resulted in the death of the two kids.

The fire was extinguished eventually, yet the residents criticized the rescuers for their slow operation and blamed the failure on a shortage of water. Although the firefighters felt wronged, they could understand how distressed the victims’ parents must have been.

As a rescue worker myself, I fervently upheld the belief that residents who are caught in a fire should always be rescued. However, most homes not only installed cage-like iron bars which are deadly during emergencies, but also burglar-proof nets. All these are the result of media reports stories of naughty children who climb and fall over the window-ledges of their homes, resulting in serious fatalities. These protective measures on their balconies and windows are to prevent potential tragedies.

However, many architects regard the "iron bars" as cages that blemish city’s architecture. Buildings are carefully designed to display their elegance. Iron bars are unsightly "cages" that provide ongoing heartaches for architects.

Not only that, the government has repeatedly stressed that the importance for a clean and beautiful city. With these in mind, I set out to design an "invisible grille" as a household guardian angel.
