Ken's farewell lunch with Golden Pillow 933

Ken is one of the 德高望重的功臣(person who has rendered outstanding service) in our company, and he is leaving, so how can we not have a farewell for him? 

Normally we will have a farewell lunch or dinner on somewhere when someone is leaving, but this time they decide to have it in office, so they ordered for delivery foods.

Have you ever heard of Golden Pillow金枕头 before? It is actually large toasted bread with curry chicken within. The bun looks like a soft pillow, is where the "pillow" come from.

I was kinda excited to try it out!
Here is the packaging:

i Light Marina Bay 2014

This is another belated post, as in it passed quite awhile already, I am so sorry for the dragging, as I lack time for blogging. Well, I will try my best not to drag post ok? By the way this is quite a headache post for me, because...I lost all my pictures for this post! It happened to be my old lappy and my hard disk crashed, so the photos for this album is gone, like forever!

Seriously very very emo about this...Some more I have already prepared all the images and ready to blog, but now all the pictures are gone...

crying inside my heart so badly
But I think I just have to accept the fact lol. I try to search over my Instagram and Dayre to see if there is any photo of this day I have posted before, so I know grab from there, although is only a few of them. At least they are few captured by me personally that I can post in my post.

Review of Tonkatsu By Ma Maison @ Mandarin Gallery

Wanted to blog about this quite awhile, I still remember it is introduce by one of our friend's friend around 2 years ago, then whenever Sherly comes, and we wonder where to meet, it will turn out to be going here, it has become a must go place whenever she comes.

Tonkatsu By Ma Maison

Incase you don't know Tonkatsu means deep fried pork. They specialise in the Japanese fried pork cutlets. All set meals here come with a bowl of white/multi-grain rice, soup and pickles. Try to come before 7pm, otherwise, you will need to be prepared to queue.
I guess we were kinda lucky that we went there earlier that day, so we only queued for awhile. The past few times we came, we had always been seated outside (opp the main restaurant), but this time it was a little different.

A little blog renovation

This is about the changes I did for my blog, although you may have spotted all.*applause*  For me, I sometimes will find my website/blog imperfect(although nothing is perfect, I just want it to look better and better), so I will always try to improve my site/blog for better user experience and make it look nicer.

Let me show you my previous blog look :

haha, i printscreen when I am log in, so you can see the edit's tool.
 New look with background!

I found this floral background which is quite nice, and I try to apply on my background, surprisingly it fit well! Previously I try to make my background clean and clear, by not making it look plain I added a green texture on my article background, my concept is when people reading, they are looking at green(at least) haha!

But in the end I find I still prefer to have a white article background for easy to show content and also customising font's color. However, white color background is too bright for this background, so I apply a texture for it. 

As I mention I am Libra baby, asking me to make decision is like killing my mind bit by bit, I will got stress out. I asked opinion from Tart and Carmen. They both say now is better than before, at least not so plain.

Then, remember last time there was a scroll to top button? Now I make it scrolling in two way, scroll to top and to bottom.

I realised in mobile my blog page are jumping, sometime you may see 3 posts in a page, sometime only one posts, sometime some post are missing. Then after research I found out what causing this happen, it is because some of my posts are too long, so to solve this, I just have to use jump break, read more is the result of using jump break. So it helps shorten your long article and make your page length more consistent.

Another thing I have change is the divider, I found the previous divider not so nice, look a bit boring and not so obvious, so I did a bit of sketch, and this is the final result. Again, thank for Tart helping me to choose, because I really sketched a lot(all almost same pattern).

Did a bit of design for my subheading and quote, I personally love it very much.

Next and Previous button at article page. I think it quite blade in with the divider.

Blog pages navigation, actually I wanted to add this previously, but then I spotted there's a bug when you view by mobile. Then I found the current one, which is the one you hover the button, my photo will be popping out, I thought it is more interesting so I use it.

Then recently I saw people using it again, so I was thinking might be someone fixed the bug, so I am giving it a try, but it is still the same, I only can use it for desktop version. I actually prefer this pages navigation then the next and previous button, because it is more easier to navigate and go to the page you want.

So in the end, I keep the button but adding this pages navigation, happy ending!

That's it, I guess I didn't miss out anything, unless u spotted anything else? hehe Anyway, feel free to leave me a comment of how you think of my new renovation :)

Something I have achieved

Well well, I know I disappear quite often recently, because there are quite some works and activities going on last month, and I don't even have time to have a proper rest yet (that kind of caused me having a very terrible skin now and feeling sick).

There's supposedly a post before this post, which I have completed the article week ago, but the post is totally gone...maybe I accidentally deleted...*bang the wall*

Besides all these "bad news", I think I did achieved quite some achievement last month, which deserves a celebration, haha, just saying, I think all I want now is a proper rest and chill.

As my previous post said, I've been working on a personal project, which is actually done before June, and the site has launched during first of June. Everything is quite sudden, one day she look for me, ask if I can help her for her online store, I was new to e-commerce website but I am interested to give a try, so I try to explore on it, after that I decided to accept the job.

So I must thank Melissa, because she gave me this opportunity to explore new thing, as I didn't do any e-commerce site before. I often think that, to create an e-commerce site, you will need to have a very strong knowledge of backend, until I completed her site I only know there's so many way and resources of it, but of course you still need to have some knowledge on coding.

When she came to me, she roughly had the idea of how her site will look like, so I just followed the look and feel she gave me to develop the remaining details, working with her was straight forward and easy, she is also a very understanding person :)

I spend around 2 months for this? As in I went traveling to Krabi in between, and some other stuff. And her website is responsive site, which is more consuming, 3 platform is like developing 3 websites. She did written a short description of working with me, you can read here.

website :

After that, I've been researching for another site then arranging all my messy files, and this took me quite a while lol! I thought it will be easy and fast, but I was so WRONG it took a few weeks for all of these, as I am a Libra baby, sometime it is so hard for me to make decision which file should put in which folder lol *bang the wall x2*

Until one day my cousin which is Michelle (I called her Xiao Jing personally) comes and "remind" me about her blog (heart broken...thought she come to concern me...jkjk), so I work on her personal blog first, because she insists that start blogging only after the blog revamp, although I suggest she may blog first while waiting for me. And so that day, I sketched few layout for her to choose, then further work on what she chosen. Very surprising I completed everything in 2-3days! I am so amazed with my speed lol! break my own record! 

Well, so she had become my first blog design's client, and she is happy with the new look. I am working on this over the weekend, my weekend gone like that, so when I pass her the site, I asked her "你要怎样报答我?" By the way, her blog was the basic blog design, no other special function added.

Blog :

Also, I created a page to showcase some of my works, incase you guys want to know how's my work, and what can I do. My previous portfolio site is so outdated, and there are only contains all the works I work during study. Anyway this portfolio page is just a temporary one, once I done with my official, I will remove this page.

Portfolio :

Besides all these, I guess you have realise there are some changes of the look of my blog, I twist a bit the design and also added some function for better reading :) I will blog about that later.

That's all for today, thanks for reading :)
