KARIM RASHID

He is an icon, ahead of present time. Far from reality. Full of inspiration. Rashid actually wants to turn the clock back. The amoeba-shaped glass-topped tables of the Fifties, the stackable plastic chairs of the Sixties, the glowing pinks and purples of the Seventies, even the digital watches of the Eighties have been given a new, glossy spin with computer-assisted design.

From my window

I was standing looking down from 70th floor, KLCC twin towers to green lashes of KLCC park. It was pretty hard to say good bye... for almost two years period of time; 19th September 2006 ~ 2nd June 2008, I am devoted myself toward the job that I love. Life can be like a roller coaster here, sometimes. It's been a great journey and I had learned a lots... part of the life journey, and moulded me to who I am today. But the view seems prettier than it used to be, or perhaps I am to busy to even notice it before... I definitely will be missed this. I leave with an open heart and proud. Wish me luck for the next journey of my life:)
