WordPress Editor upgrade I have been visiting medium for couple weeks. I have to say I'm impressed not only with the design but also with the content which is the main reason why I visit that website after all. The text is clear and big enough so it's easy to read for anyone. Not only that, there are a lot of good quality content to read. Furthermore, I'm amazed by the editor. Just like the WordPress, they are using WYSIWYG…

Got a free drink from Starbucks

Today, I woke up just like usual. Well, I feel a bit lazy so I woke up a bit late than usual, at 8 am. Today was a holiday. There’s no need for me to wake up early. After doing my usual morning routine, such as checking e-mail and watch youtube, I fell hungry and immediately grab my serving of bread combined with Nutella. I have to say that I really love the taste of it. I don’t have any…

CSS Text Outline

in Development<1 min read

Today, I was curious about “Is there a CSS property to add font outline?”. I mean, it is really useful for making a minimalist icon or just to design nice button. This isn’t the first time I think about this in 2009. Unfortunately, the function didn’t exist back then (no surprise). But, I wonder if such property exists, considering how the CSS feature has grown in the last few years. Turn out it is possible to do it using -webkit-text-stroke property….

Favorite Place in Cambridge: Library

in Personal1 min read

As an international student, especially when the destination place is very different from your own country, finding a comfortable place is a must. Not only it will be the place for study, it also a place where you can stay comfortably. Because if you are like me, coming from a warm country, then suddenly going into a country where normally cold, it won’t be pleasant. That’s why the first thing I want to do when I arrived in the UK…

Block Annoying Wesbite Notification Request

in Development<1 min read

Recently, I began to notice an increase in the request for notification when I open some website. Almost every website I visit will ask me for notification request. I don’t know if it happens just recently or it already happens for quite some time. I don’t really understand why those websites do that. Either way, it is annoying. For me, unlike advertisements, a notification request is not that intrusive. However, when I have to click I don’t want them for every website I visit,…

Free Flat Icon

Have you ever thought that “This would be great if I add an icon in there” when designing something but you don’t know how to find or to make one? Or even worse, you found the icon that you want but you have to pay for it? This happens to my friend last year. At first, he asks me that what software did I use to make 2D vector graphics. Of course, just like a great friend, I answer what I…

Tsuko G. RUNNING IN 90s

Today, I found a really fun music. How come I never listen to this song before. It’s an anime song though. It came from very old anime called “Initial D”. It about street car racing or something like that (I’m not sure). It’s not my kind of anime. Nevertheless, it still has some enjoyable music. If you hate anime, you probably won’t like this song. Regardless, here is the youtube version: I don’t remember if I ever told this to anyone…

Designing New Logo

in Personal1 min read

I have a task I want to do since I first created this blog. The task is not complicated. It also won’t take too much time. It just to design a logo for this site. I forgot about it. Until recently. At that time, I only create a quick logo to fill the favicon so this blog would look legit. Or at least I want to show that this blog is a proper website. It takes an hour to design the icon….

Should I change the theme?

in Personal2 min read

3 days ago, I got an email that offers me a discount for WordPress themes. I don’t usually subscribe to something unless I was forced to do it (like register for website or wifi) and forgot to unsubscribe. It’s nothing important. It just a WordPress theme sale for X Theme and a couple of other themes. At first, I thought “well, I don’t need it. I already have it. And I don’t to buy it again”. Then I remember the…
