"I never ran out of inspiration. Even when it's just in the small details, for example.. when I sit alone gazing outside the window of my aunt's apartment in KLCC, I get inspired even with the color of the sky... helps me clear my head."(read more quotes from Heather at http://klcccondominiums.com.my/stonor-park
