NUS Commencement 2010 – Officially Graduated
· ·

Thanks to Li Xiang for the graduation gift, she bought it for me when we are in Hong Kong During April 2010! Meet Dahhhh, the rabbit from Raving Rabbids!

This year NUS Commencement 2010 for School of Computing is on Wednesday, 7th July 2010 at 8pm! Seriously hate the 8pm slot because after the ceremony ended or even before it started it is already at night and can’t really take good pictures.

MicroSIM Cards in Singapore

MicroSIM Cards in Singapore

Last Saturday, 29th May 2010, Starhub and M1 begun selling MicroSIM cards and SingTel will follow behind on 1st June 2010 which is tomorrow.

No idea whether does the telecos here allow MultiSIM card to have MicroSIM or it is strictly for data plans only. Nevertheless, you still can cut it to MicroSIM size by using just a scissors. Just BECAREFUL not to even snip a bit off the golden metal contact point as it will make the SIM card useless.

It seems that SingTel have already begun preparing MicroSIM for users. Accordingly to the user “MorpheusV” who posted in this thread, Looks like SingTel has started saling MicroSIM, states that when he sign up for SingTel’s 7.2Mbps 2 years contract, it comes with a Huawei E5832 and the sales person told him that the SIM card of the plan would be MicroSIM.

Mini Interview By My Paper (我报)

Mini Interview By My Paper (我报)

Did a mini interview by Kenny Chee of My Paper (我报) regarding EpiCentre taking pre-order for iPad. I have negative views on this as EpiCentre did not do a great job last year when they handle the pre-order for iPhone 3GS and end up those who pre-order with them got it later than SingTel customers. It will be fine if you pre-order the iPad WiFi version but for the iPad 3G + WiFi version, there might be a chance that it will be given to telecos first.

my paper (我报) is Singapore’s first free chinese newspaper, launched on 1 June 2006, is designed for bilingual, young adults aged 20-40, who have been exposed to Western and Chinese cultures and want their voices to be heard.

Happy 26th Birthday To Me

Happy 26th Birthday To Me

Celebrated my 26th Birthday at Resort World’s Chilli’s yesterday. It was my second time at Chilli’s, first time was at Tanglin Mall branch. Chilli’s food is fantastic but it is a bit pricey. Love the free flow of Tostada Chip for only S$6.90. The steak is very expensive, S$41.90, totally not worth it, don’t bother trying. But the Fajitas is very nice.

Total bill is S$107 including Li Xiang’s Strawberry Lemonade (S$4.90) and my Bottomless Beverage (S$4.90)

I finally got a blogger name card to give away during blogger events, thanks to Li Xiang who designed it for me. Printed it at Tommy Print. S$60 for 200 pieces. The price is pretty steep because the material used is translucent plastic card. It took a month before I am able to collect it. Guess not much people print those.

Web Development On Mac

Web Development On Mac
· ·

I am all along a Window user and have been doing web development on Windows for years. When I started work, all the guys in the engineering team are using Mac, so I thought I go with the flow and begin doing web development on a Mac. The experience was excellent, just need some time to get used to. After intensively using Mac for more than a month, I am proud to say, I am not going back to a Windows PC. My next computer shall be a Mac. I am hoping the 27″ iMac gets refreshed next year and it I am going to get that. Even Valve is bringing Steam to Mac. With Blizzard games able to run on Mac and Razer supporting it mice with Mac drivers. There is no reason for me to use a Windows PC anymore. If there is really a need (like testing website in IE), I will just use VMWare to run Windows 7.

Here are some software I use to do web development on Mac:

This week marks the end of my second week of work at mig33. Work for me has been smooth. I like my job because it is what I like to do and what I used to do previously. Instead of coding WordPress plugins for the WordPress community, I am coding mig33 software for the mig33 community.

Today is the eve of Lunar New Year, I hereby wishes all Chinese a Happy Lunar New Year! And hope that they DO NOT take advantage of lunar new year to increase your food prices! It is ridiculous!
