DISCOVERING THE PAST

This is a sneak preview of an old palace once the abode of a reigning sultan and his consort, which thankfully is being conserved and restored. Surely there are lots of stories to tell about this treasure piece. Its architectural design and influence, its owner and inhabitants, usage through the years and what it will be after more than a century of eclipse and suddenly alive and facing the world again just as it was first born await to be told.
The two pictures below is an introduction to the story that will be unfolded as months come by culminating hopefully in its prestine origin.

Pak Non,
Hanya orang 'lama' sukakan yang lama2.
Orang 'baru' sudah lain ceritanya.

Pak Cha,
Samalah seperti kisah Sekolah Men Ibrahim yang sedang diusahakan. Yang ini sebenarnya kisah awal Sekolah Perempuan Kg Baru ( SM Asma) dan juga istana Che Sepachendera ( isteri pertama Sultan Abdul Halim) Menarik bukan? Sudah ada banyak bahan tapi ceritanya kemudian. (Esok kami ke KB ada kenduri kawin anak adik)

Azizi dan Pak Cha,
Maaf Che Sepachendera ( isteri pertama Sultan Abdul Hamid ) grand father to Sultan Abdul Halim. Typing error in the earlier note.
Azizi I am sure you would appreciate. It is right in the city of Alor Star. I am not suprised you do not know about it. We ( AAArchitect)are in fact working with Badan Warisan Negara for its conservation. Will certainly describe as it progressed. BTW I believe yr are relieved now that you can get back to hitting the keyboard..

Good ԁаy! I know this іs kind of off topiс but
I was wondering which blog platfoгm are you using fоr this website?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've haԁ prоblemѕ with hackeгs and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

І'm really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
