SGShop Review: First Time Shipping from China by Sea

God created the world, everything else is made in China. Buying things from China is a lot cheaper and recently the quality is decent too especially considering the price. Value for money is what you will get from most of your purchases from China. Most of you should be familiar with the online retailer Amazon. In China, they have TaoBao. Couple that with all the forwarding services available these days buying from Chinese online retailers has never been easier.

I recently bought a large ticket item, a mobile cart for hanging my 40-inch monitor. I used a forwarding and buying service called SGShop and would like to share some thoughts about my experience. In brief for those wondering how it went: Easy to purchase but item came in horrible shape.

Shifted to New Host Provider

Moved to new host

I’ve just, yet again, made the switch to a new host service provider. Reason being that the new plan that I am now on is slightly better specced compared to the  previous plan (for the same amount of money). The new service provider seems to be doing fine as far as I can tell. From the quick research I’ve done, past customer reviews seems positive and the lack of complaints or any serious issues is reassuring.

Sending Emails from Custom Domains for Free

I’ve been looking for a way to properly send emails from my custom domains (such as the domain you are on now, swiftworld.net) but I’ve been searching for the wrong services. I do not need a mailbox or any storage space, I just need to be able to send an email from someone@mydomain.com. I’ve finally found the “proper” way of doing things and for those of you who don’t send hundreds and thousands of emails daily, this will be a free solution for you as well. Continue reading

LeeQixian.com My Personal Portfolio Website

I’ve decided to put up a personal portfolio website on LeeQixian.com to document and showcase some of the works I’ve done so far. It will be the place where I’ll keep track of current, past and future projects that I am a part of. I’m very new to this web development industry so do let me know if you have any opportunities or advice for a newbie like me!

I still have about 2 years left before graduation. I should be increasing the tempo of personal projects and whatnot during these remaining schooling years. This site, SwiftWorld.net, will continue to be the place where I document my thoughts, publish guides, videos and everything else that interests me (as it has always been).

Introducing GameBundleList.com

I’ve kept an always updated list of game bundle sites for quite some time already. Finding it inefficient, I decided to create a site that compiles the latest game bundles for you. While it isn’t exactly automatic in terms of the addition of game bundles, it is pretty easy for me to add new bundles as and when they are on for sale. Take a look at the video I’ve created or simply head straight down to GameBundleList.com for a clearer understanding of the site.

How to Add Mobile Number to Twitter Account

I’ve just faced this problem yesterday. For app developers out there who are using the Twitter API for their apps or normal webmasters who need the API for their plugins and scripts, you will find that Twitter requires the account to have an associated mobile number before it allows access levels higher than “Read”. For those living in countries that are supported, great for you. For others, activating your mobile number can be a really difficult or even an impossible task. You will most likely face either one of these problems when trying to add a mobile number:

  1. Your carrier isn’t listed
  2. Your carrier is “listed” but it doesn’t work giving error “Sorry, we don’t have a connection to your carrier yet!”
  3. You waste money to send a message using the long code method but it doesn’t work.
  4. You submit a form for review but after waiting and waiting there isn’t any reply.
