Rimbun Seni

Elviza text me yesterday and earlier this morning about visiting Raden at the hospital. Though I did not say it to her, I do apologise for not being able to make it as there was already a prior engagement - a family lunch ado at my eldest brother's house in Kota Kemuning.

Now Suhaimi, or Emi, as he is called by friends and family circle, is the brother I referred to in an entry or two previous, as a more refined and cultured person compared to me. Bestowed with the finer aspects of life, which perhaps was inherited from Emak, Emi was always into arts and design since young, and his first job was a draughtsman in KL was back in the early late 1970's. Later on, he moved on as an Art Director to an advertising agency, and from there climbed the ranks to become a Creative Director at several agencies, local and international. One of his best works in the industry was the Proton Ad featuring several horsemen at a beach.

Several years back, he quit the industry and started his own Landscaping & Design company named Rimbunseni Sdn Bhd. Building the company from scratch, his house has been featured several time in the print media and TV, as a showcase of his artistic design. And there we were earlier today, the few family members here in KL, for a delicious but hot Mee Udang.
Clockwise: Din (the brains of the family), Emak, Emi, Zaini (Emi's wife) and Yasmin (Din's wife).

The younger generation in KL, minus one: Hanan, Hanin, and Norsara.

Emi has a love for real large pots such as the one above.

Running out of space within his compound, he utilised the open space beside it.
The local authorities does not seem to mind as Emi has turned the space
into a beautiful garden while maintaining it at the same time.

His website seem to be down for the moment, but one can always google rimbunseni to find several entries on it, including one by that cakapaje bloke way back in 2006.

Wah...are the pots for decoration or for sale? How much is it? When I have a budget for landscape, I may consider your brother. Right now, just my own efforts and ideas.

Salam Shah,
Abang tu, di Kota Kemuning di mana. Rumah say di Kota Kemuning sudah siap, tinggal final touch up je. Tapi mungkin tahun depan baru nak masuk kot. Ada tanah juga kelilingnya, tapi tak tahu nak buat cammana.

Wa'alakumusalam ydiana,

Well, the pots are for his clients, so I guess they are for sale. As for the price, I have not the faintest idea at all! Perhaps, you may want to contact him yourself ;)

Wa'alaikumusalam Pak Zabs,

Alamak! Alamat dia saya tak tahu...selalu menonong tuju je ke rumah. Tapi, rumah dia berdekatan dengan stesen Petronas dan roundabout kecil. Masuknya dari Kesas melalui laluan kedua - K Kemuning / Bukit Rimau.

Kata Tak Nak said...

Rimbunseni? I think I have heard of it before but anyway, I am not very much a rimbun man, more of a menyemak man but I do love things green, very cooling and calming effect.

Wa'alaikumusalam kema,

Hehe...suruh le Mama anak buah you tu buat. Lepas, panggil bloggers beramai ramai makan. Tapi mesti sebelum Ramadhan ye :)

cakapaje said...

Salam Cikgu,

Lol! So am I - a menyemak man ;)

Mat Salo said...

Eh Shah, my terrace house punya plot only about 10' x 8' - brader hang bole buat ke? Ada diskaun tok members tak? he...

Really nice. Seriously, mana lah tahu kalau ada rezeki, if can get a bigger place I know whom to call!

P/S/ I guess competitor dia Desmond of Terragarden yang buat garden Tokasid *WoW*

Kema said...

cakapaje said...

Salam MS,

Hehe...insyAllah, ada diskaun kut - besar laman, besar lagi diskaun, in terms of ringgit, bukan percentage ye ;)

Hmm...never been to 'WoW' yet. Doc pun taknak letak gambau.

cakapaje said...
