    Buka Puasa Gathering




    Yeah! yet another Buka Puasa gathering! Right...how can one miss out the delicious delicacy during Buka Puasa period. Seriously, one really need a good company to munch those lots of food. The excitement, the thrill and a little chat and lots of laughters...what can be better?

    As an alternative to buka puasa at home, one could also do so at restaurant. For the month of Ramadan, many places hold buka puasa buffets. The buffets usually offer a wide and tantalising selection of food. The Institution of Engineers Malaysia, Young Engineer Section had their buka puasa on 28th September 2007 at Big Plate Restaurant, Kampung Melayu Subang. During this time around, it's just another great gathering for everyone during this festive season. A total of 12 members participated in the event with the mixture of YES committees and YES members.

    Blogged by Lee Mei Ping

    Community Service Project


    The Institution of Engineers Malaysia, Young Engineer Section is a based non profit organization with the modest goal of touching the lives of people throughout the communities we serve. Our architecture profession has an ethical responsibility to help improve living condition for the poor and the disadvantaged.

    Community project was held from 10th August 2007 to 20th August 2007. We, the IEM YES put our educational values to work as citizens of community. We proposed works for replacing existing asbestos roof to metal deck roof c/w
    rockwool insulation for 3 blocks of single-storey computer room and dormitories for Pure Life Society which was located at Batu 6, Jalan Puchong.





    Here are some of the photos taken throughout the project. Proposed works for replacing the existing asbestos roof to metal deck roof c/w rockwool insulation for 3 blocks of single storey computer room and dormitories for Pure Life Society.





    The IEM YES hope to help, at no cost, yet hoping to provide solutions for the communities. Though we are small, working on relatively small project, part of our passion for the organization grows out of a desire to help build and rebuild the underserved communities however possible.


    Our goal is not to solve every problem we meet, but rather to inspire others to join the effort through construction of physical attempts.
