BlogOut! 2009

*Phew* Finally my nervous presentation at BlogOut! 2009 was over. BlogOut! 2009 was a huge success.

There is some re-scheduling, my presentation was moved up to about 11.45am instead of 1.30pm. Once I am up there presenting, I don’t feel so nervous anymore. Elvin from Intel told me to look at the audience more often and smile which I agree. I think I am too engross looking at my screen and notes instead of the audience. Li Xiang told me that my hand moved too much and should hold onto the podium to prevent it from moving about that often. I hope I can do better next time. If I have the time, I hope to speak again at the Singapore PHP User Group when WordPress 2.8 comes out.

Happy Valentine’s Day 2009

Li Xiang baked butter cookies and cornflakes cookie for me as this year and I did a card for her (using computer) and got her a heart shape candy at Sticky. We exchanged gifts yesterday instead of today as today we were up early in the morning to attend her friend’s ROM at SAF Seaview Resort. It was a very isolated place and parking is really a problem due to the extremely limited parking space. After the ROM ceremony ended at about 3pm, we went to Orchard to take a walk. It was very crowded and I saw many LV and Gucci paper bags, looks like recession has not hit us hard yet or either the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer. Saw Andy and his girlfriend at Lucky Plaza.

We have dinner at Tang Dian Wang at Hereen. It was my second time eating at Tang Dian Wang, the first was at Suntec. The food is good and the prices are very reasonable. I love the soup there!

Lunar New Year 2009 Is Almost Over

In a blink of an eye, this year Lunar New Year is almost over. Tomorrow is the 7th day of Lunar New Year which is also called “Ren Ri”. In English, it means people day aka everybody birthday. Lunar New Year celebration normally last for 15 days.

Lunar New Year is getting a little repetitive and boring as we grow up, sooner or later, the current or next generation of people will just treat it as another public holiday.

Happy Lunar New Year 2009

This week is my second week of school. Tutorials going to start next week and projects are already started coming in. Going to get real busy after Lunar New Year. That basically sums up my school life so far.

JavaScript In My WordPress Plugins
I have been making use of some of my free time last week to convert 5 of my plugins that uses JavaScript to use jQuery JavaScript Framework instead and also replaced the SACK AJAX Framework to jQuery as well. Instead of including packed JavaScript using Dean Edwards Packer, I replaced it with minified JavaScript using YUI Compressor. Minified JavaScript has better performance even though it is slightly larger in file size when compared to packed JavaScript because the browser do not need to unpacked the packed JavaScript. Also, I have moved the JavaScript from the header down to the footer as it gives better loading times. You can read about it in details on my WordPress Plugins Blog.
