Embracing Modernity In A Really, Really Bad Way


My institute's administrative building entrance:



My institute's administrative building entrance and the rest of the building:



What would be the perfect caption for this photo?


a. The students' I mean Government's money is well used for improving the state of the old buildings.

b. A harmonious fusion of modern and classic architecture.

c. An example of how a detachable entrance would be perfect for welcoming the menteri-menteri who comes to visit virtually any dilapidated building (wheels not included).

d. There's nothing odd or out of place in this photo, you exaggerating drama queen.

e. Just totally, completely, mind-blowingly awesome photoshop!

Amanda Christine Wong said...

Natasha: I don't know la...so far I don't see any touching up done on the other parts of the building...and maybe, those who see it everyday (those who work inside it) will probably feel bangga to see it...don't you think? :D
