This house has a Kitchen Module and a Mother’s House Module that are connected to the clothesline which is also the original design of the Kelantan House known as Rumah Bujang. The characteristics of the houses of the nobles are different from the residences of ordinary people, where they differ in terms of the pillars of the mother’s house, where ordinary people’s houses have 12 pillars on the module of the mother’s house, while the residences of the nobles have 16 pillars on the module. In addition, the family home in Raja also has an entrance without stairs and the floor is 8-10 feet from the ground level which is equal to the height of an elephant. Such a design is not because they keep elephants under the house, but rather it is designed to make it easier for the residents of the house to enter the house after driving with the elephant without getting off the animal. This is actually to protect the dignity and status of those who are known as members of the royal family.

The carvings on the walls also consist of flora motifs which are synonymous with Kelantan carving motifs. It is a very charming and luxurious residence for the people of Kelantan in the 1800s. This house was built with a mortise method with few nails, it also uses wood from the Cengal and Berlian types which nowadays are very difficult to obtain due to the fact that this type of wood is expensive for people to buy. habit Cengal and Berlian are hard types of wood that take a long time to process, currently only the rich are able to build houses from this type of wood.

Zebra Crossing

A pedestrian crossing is a facility designated for pedestrians to cross a road in groups, so that they can be seen by the motorists. Pedestrian crossing is also used by them to cross safely across a flow of vehicular traffic. However, accidents still occur among pedestrians even though there are provisions for pedestrian crossing facilities. The purpose of this research is to identify the level of motorists’ compliance towards pedestrian crossing at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) which is located in Bangi, Selangor

World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur: An Iconic Idea Exchange Towards Nation Building

As part of Malaysia’s national heritage, let’s consider a notion to enhance a heritage which has been a cornerstone of creation and exchange of ideas that has advanced the economy over the last four decades. In its essence, the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) has over delivered on this notion as it’s definitely a global and Malaysia’s exchange for economic development by providing space for innovation and progress.

The heritage then becomes a symbol of an era, which not only existed in the past but both for the present and well into the future. The visionary behind WTCKL is its Group Managing Director, Dato’ Sri Dr Haji Irmohizam Ibrahim, whose long list of credentials places him as the leader on the beat to drive higher value towards WTCKL to achieve world recognition.
