Minor Site Tweaks

· · · Site

Tweak some stuffs on this site, mainly only affect the back-end rather than the user-end. Now the time taken to load the page is much more accurate and it is located at the bottom but outside the page layout.

All parts of the page layout are now being called from a function file rather than including the file. This makes updating the site an easier job for me and the site will look more uniform in terms of breadcrumbs navigation and the page title.

Games Arena V7

My good buddy, Shaun aka DeMoBLiTzer, has redesigned his site, this is his 7th layout since 2000, it is called Project Zen as what it is stated in the URL. Well, I must say the red and black combination is not bad.
Here is the news on his site:

The prototype 7.0 site layout is out today, hope that its appealing to all. I won’t be improving the design of this new layout till after my A level exams next month. And while I’ve got some serious studying up my back, in the mean time, enjoy the site!

Happy Halloween

· · · Blog

Woo, today is Halloween’s Day. Happy Halloween to all. Ermmm, Halloween is the English version of the Chinese 7th month ghost festival? LOL.

Accompanied my girlfriend for her job interview at Mosque Street in the afternoon together with Jean and Zhi Wei. While waiting for them to finish interviewing, went to Maxwell Market, as that is the nearest food center available to us. As usual ate the Fried Slice Fish Soup there, later went to Chinatown Point McDonald’s to site down and wait for them.

DSAL Exams Over

· · · Blog

Went to school at 7.45am to eat breakfast with my gang, before taking the exams at 9am. The DSAL exams is quite difficult man, hope I can pass it although my overall marks confirm pass(lecturer says so), luckily the exams only 30%, for the other 70%, I have already got about 44/100, just need about 18 marks from the exams to pass this module, and 54 marks from the exams to get a C, that is what I can get, a grade C for this module.

After the exams, went to Clementi for lunch, bought Age Of Mythology, heard that it is quite a good game. Friday will be my last exams, WWWP. I will be enjoying today, and start studying for it tomorrow.

DSAL Sucks

· · · Blog

Stayed at home the whole day to study DSAL, went out only to buy lunch back. Ate Lor Mee from my house the other coffee shop, it is 1 of the famous Lor Mee stall in Singapore, queued for about 15 minutes as it is after lunch time, if not I think need to queue at least 45 minutes. Good food always must wait.

After lunch studied DSAL, took a nap can countinue again till dinner time. Hope I can make it for tomorrow DSAL’s test, 200+ lines of JAVA codes to remember, sucks, no open book somemore. When I was year 1, I took OOPG(Object Oriented Programming) in JAVA, the exams was open book. Enough of crap, back to study.

P&Q2 Exams Over

· · · Blog

Went to Clementi to eat lunch with my girlfriend before going to school to take my P&Q2 exams. Ate the Katong Laksa there, well it is the best stall at the coffee shop, wanted to eat at the market there, but I think they doing some renovation or fogging, all the stalls not opened.

My P&Q2 exams today was rather easy compared with the 2 other papers I took last week, left 2 more exams which will be on this Wednesday, 30th October 2002 and Friday, 1st November 2002.

Bah Kut Teh

· · · Blog

Went to eat Bah Kut Teh(Pork Ribs Soup) in the morning, also long time since I ate it. Went to Suntec after that to look for window air-con, need to install it in the study room, so that my brother can sleep in that room rather then sleeping with my parents. Now only 2 rooms are air-conned, which is my room and my parents room.

Went to Carrefour after that, bought Best 2002 Vol 2 CD. Ate NYDC for my tea-break which is around 5pm. Came back studied P&Q2 and watch some television, did not eat dinner, had a very heavy meal at NYDC.

Minced Pork Noodle

· · · Blog

Went to eat Minced Pork Noodle in the morning at Best Way Building the canteen there. Long time since I ate that. That Minced Pork Noodle stall there, can be considered Singapore’s Best Minced Pork Noodle, it have received many food awards, another of its branch is at Marina Square in the non-aircon foodcourt (be warned that you must at least queue for 1 hour during peak periods like lunch time).

Came back studied P&Q2 still I felt asleep, slept till about 5.30pm then wake up and study again. LOL.
