I would like to briefly introduce myself first – my name is Fan Lip Hoong, I am 21 years old and I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I recently graduated my diploma at Bandar Sunway, Malaysia. and I always had a dream that went to further studies in oversea. I have always had a great passion for interior designing which developed form a love of designing catalogues. So, I have the chance to come to Accademia Riaci, Florence, Italy to master my designing skills. I want to develop my knowledge of interior designing in Italy. In future, I intend to help people with my creative ideas in decorating and designing to help them make their space look attractive also give them what they are looking for.

簡単に自己紹介をしたいと思います。名前はFan Lip Hong、歳は21才でマレーシアのクアラルンプールに住んでいます。そして少し前にマレーシアのBandar Sunwayを卒業したばかりです。すっと海外で勉強する事を夢見ており、デザインカタログへの愛から生まれたインテリアデザインへの情熱ををずっとお持ち続けていました。そして、イタリアのフィレンツェにあるアカデミアリアチでデザインスキルを習得する機会を得ました。イタリアでインテリアデザインについての知識を深め、自分のデコレーションとデザインの創造力を使って人々の空間を魅力的にしたり、彼らが求めてるものを作る手助けができればと思います。

Interior Design 3-One Year Course 2017(Student2)

This week lecturer showing us his artwork to us. He show us his carpentry drawing where it shows how do the furniture that he designed looks like and how does the furniture function works. The carpentry shows 100% clearly so that when the person who built out does not have any problem. Next, he show us the hard copy of the furniture layout plan to us. Now I realize how luckily because last time they do not have those software to do. They need to do it on a paper with the correct scale.
I have also learnt a few famous Italian painters. The history of the painters are so interesting. Every picture or the artwork they done have their own meaning. And the architecture building that famous in Italy. So that lecturer will bring us during art visit. So that we can have more clearly understanding.
During weekend, I went to the scenic Tuscan roads and visit the centuries-old cities of Siena and San Gimignano on a day-long trip. In the early morning, we took train to Siena. And had our lunch there. After that we dropped by to San Gimignano cause this the way we back we will pass by to there, so we stopped there and had out dinner there.
