Planet-Pulse is a site whereby it gives the opportunity for people to take surveys provided and earn money at the same time. I know of many such sites but however I did not venture into any of them. However with the recommendation of one of my friend, and some comments from others in the internet, I found myself entering the site. First impressions are always very important and all I knew was that Planet-Pulse gave me a good one. The site design was simple and nice; colours used were really soothing and pleasing to the eye. In the front page I was also greeted with a flash introduction of Planet-Pulse. Without further delay, I went on to register myself. Registration was pretty fast, (Not too quick as there was a sum of questions asked. Besides this is a survey website, it ought to know its members more) validation mail came within seconds. Validated, and off I go into the member’s panel
If you have been observant enough, you will notice that the banner on top has been changed! I made a new logo and a new title that fits and blends rather well with the template. Well, that is my opinion anyways. What about you guys? Do you think the new logo and banner is worst than before? Or simply more magnificent and beautiful? I would like to hear your comments, if possible.
I know I have not been updating recently. That is due to the heavy workload I am currently getting from school. However, I will try my best to put up at least 1 interesting article per week. I hope you people can understand as I am not a full-time professional blogger, I can not dedicate all my time to just blogging etc, I still have my studies which are more important. The most important final year examinations would be coming in around 5 to 6 weeks time and during that period, I will be extremely busy. However, like I previously said, I will try my best to put up at least 1 interesting article per week so don’t you dare to not come back to my site.
These past few weeks were my examination weeks. Till now, it is still ongoing. In fact, until next Wednesday, I will not be free. Busy, busy busy. Mug, mug and mug. Study, study and more studying. Argh! My brain can not take it anymore! So far results are pretty good, received back 4 subjects grades, 3 yet to be returned and 2 examinations about to be taken. Because of this, I lacked the time to update the site with anything interesting.
However, I promise that I will write some great articles after next Wednesday. Some content that I will be putting up will be reviews on multi-service instant messaging applications (MSN, Yahoo, AOL etc all in one application) and comparison on mainly two application that caught my interest (Trillian and Velvet Puffin). Look forward to it
Till then, goodbye. I still have to study for my upcoming history paper on Monday.
Yesterday was the big day. It was the nation’s 42nd birthday and it was a blast. Celebrating in the new stadium at marina bay (the world largest floating stage), the atmosphere was certainly different. I was lucky and had tickets to go watch and celebrate together with the other Singaporeans.
As usual, the celebration provided splendid performances and songs. Interesting goodie packs in the start and magnificent fireworks at the end (When I say magnificent is was really world-class!) Laser displays and lightings were something new for this year and it was really well done. The Red Lions again performing their parachuting acts and the SAF displayed a vehicle show (Land unit showed their mobile artilleries, Sea showed their different boats, and lastly Air showed their planes and helicopters mainly the apaches and the Chinook). The goodie bag contained some tidbits, an electric fan, a hat and some drinks. However, the goodie bag was rather special as you can customize it whether is it in design or size. (Its connected by zip and made up of strips of cloth of different colours) With all of that said, I must say that none of that is what made my day there the most enjoyable. Continue reading →
After numerous free hosts I tried, I must say that Kwix-Host is the best. It is reliable, stable and simply provides quality plans both reasonable for them, providers, and us, users. Kwix-Host, backend up with a tremendous amount of positive reviews and near perfect uptime, I decided to venture into it. At that time I must say I hated post-to-host providers. That is because I have learnt that I am pretty much exchanging my precious time for hosts that were going down the next week or so. However, Kwix-Host did not disappoint me. It has already been a month or two since I had them hosting me and never did a single time it was down nor caused me much problems. All I can say is that I am really glad to have such a provider, and I really hope that it stays that way forever (Until I decide to go into paid hosting).
Advertlets is a new site I found through reading through some forums as well as browsing through some other people’s website. It is another site which provides services for both parties. People who want to advertise their site and people who want to publish those ads while earning some money for themselves in the process. When I first got into the site, I was rather happy and pleased with the site design. It is clean, simple and its colours give a rather warm feeling. It is simply pleasing to the eye I must admit. First impression always matters a lot and even though there is a saying going by not judging a book by its cover, many people still do so. And I am no exception. By just looking at the site design, I must say that Advertlets has a bright future ahead for them.
So far wordpress seems much better than blogger. Plugins themes etc all seems much better. Possibilities is what wordpress provides while blogger provides… hmm those normal boring unoriginal blogging stuff where almost every blogging softwares have now.
I’ll keep it short as I’m still working on the site installing some plugins, and sooner or later the blog will be started fully filled with much content (reviews, news etc)
