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)
