I often share about WordPress, web development, technology, and the digital life.

What an awesome year

I can’t believe 2015 is already drawing to a close in just a couple of weeks. I made a brief recap of my year in a friends-only Facebook post of mine. TL;DR, I’ll just describe my year in one single word: wow. It’s not that everything was doing well for […]

On blogging again and redefining web development

I’m back on my blog (yeah, right)! My last post was on September 2014. For someone who claims to love blogging, a year’s gap between blog posts sure doesn’t look like I walk the talk. The usual excuses apply. I don’t regret not updating my blog one bit. However, all […]

My life is rocking.

Hello, blog!

How’ve you been? Yeah, things have been a little dusty on the blogging front. When life happens, priorities need to be re-analysed and re-ordered. Which means that I need to have a better strategy or process in place to keep this blogging muscle going. Which, most probably means that I […]

Google Developer Group now in Kota Kinabalu

When life gives you lemons, grab the tequila and have a party. That’s what I’ve been doing to my life lately. And what better way to go at it than to spend on efforts I’m most passionate about? I’m a simple citizen developer. I don’t have a Computer Science degree, […]

I was looking through my cross stitch niche site when it reminded me of one thing — I miss blogging so much. Whenever I wanted to blog, though, I immediately thought of all the WordPress projects I needed to continue, or when I do have time, I would forget, and […]

Launch of Google Business Group Kota Kinabalu

I was pretty excited to hear about the initiative to have a Google Business Group (GBG) in Kota Kinabalu, when the idea was brought up by Daniel Doughty during our chat last November (he’s also the brains behind the Borneo Colour events). Therefore I made a point not to miss […]

WordPress widget: One down, more to go

Well that was fast. About two hours after I posted about my 2013 to-do list, I finished this. That’s what focus and micro-tasking do to me. I just wished I have many chances to be in the zone. Achieving them is challenging especially when your work and kids at home […]
