...sustainably assembled: Putrajaya, Bangi n Puncak Alam
In d afternoon today, my destination was UiTM Puncak Alam campus for Planning Students Assembly 2009. It was supposed to be held in its Shah Alam campus earlier but it eventually was postponed n relocated. We were represented by 18 students only since it was at d end of d semester n most of d students were quite busy [I guess je laa..] with their projects n assignments. Meanwhile, yesterday I took my class on a site visit to Putrajaya in d morning n UKM in d afternoon. For d former, we paid a visit to d Ministry of Energy, Green Technology n Water while in UKM we singgah @ its Solar Energy Research Institute [SERI]. Basically all of us were exposed to whats available today with regards to attempt towards sustainable housing...
