School Journal: Week 3

Photoshop 1 Due to Easter Monday, we didn’t have any Photoshop classes; too bad because my reference book has already arrived in the mail. Ugh.

School Journal: Week 2

Photoshop 1 Our Photoshop classes began this week and started the discussion about colours. For an experienced web developer, while I am already aware that RGB is for the Web and CMYK is for print, there’s much more to it – like how the colours of each complement each other. I totally agree with the […]

Barney, You’re Being a Hypocrite

Yes you are, thanks to tonight’s episode. Although I admit Barney is actually my favourite character in the How I Met Your Mother series, tonight’s episode (entitled “The Broken Code“) portrays Barney in a different light.

Facebook Pet Peeves

An Inspiring Feat

This picture completely made my day. I was just doing the routine checks on my Facebook account when I’ve noticed this image through shares of some of my friends. And honestly – I was thrown off-guard. Only one word crossed my mind. Amazing! In the modern society where children prefer computer games, social networks and […]

Tamagotchi: Pixel Friend

I am still reaching out to my inner child. Does anyone still remember the famous Tamagotchi? It’s one of the most popular toys that were released in the mid-90’s by the Japanese toy maker Bandai. It’s a handheld digital pet housed in an egg-shaped computer. Similar to The Sims, users can control the pet by […]

Thoughts on “The Hunger Games” Movie

I was finally able to watch one of the most anticipated movies this year, the movie adaptation for Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. Having read the first and second books of the trilogy back in 2009, I was recommended to the series by a close friend of mine. I have also watched Battle Royale a […]
