Shopping List App – Update

| April 1, 2015

You must remember that I had been working on a shopping list app as one of my coding projects. This is how it looks like now.   None of the three icons (drag and drop, check, and trash can) are live yet. My plan is to remove the instructions once I get the icons to work. [...]

Shopping List App – Coding Project

| March 9, 2015

My next coding project is to build a simple shopping list app. Well, it doesn’t have to be simple. It can be as complex as I want it to be but I don’t think I’m ready to complicate my life that much yet so let’s aim for something simple and functional. And hopefully pretty. So [...]

I “hacked” the NY Times

| January 27, 2015

One of the assignments in my coding class is to “hack” the NY Times. It’s really just to play around with the developer tools. So here’s what I did:

Library Haul!

| September 12, 2014

I thought I could save myself a trip to the library by renewing my three due books online. But alas, one of them, the one I was in the middle of, was on hold so I had to go and return it. Since I was there, I decided I might as well find more books [...]

Tang Poetry on Google Play

| April 8, 2014

I doubt I can be outnerded on this one: I installed an app that helps me learn Tang poetry. And now I’m bragging about it. Awesome features include: You can choose to show the pinyin. And/Or the English translation. Plus there’s a recorded voice that lets you hear the proper intonation. Sankapa! To celebrate the [...]

An Exercise: Shrimp and mushroom in garlic sauce

| March 21, 2014

This will look like a recipe but it’s really an HTML exercise I’ve decided to put myself through. I will be writing the below in HTML code so I could get used to the tags and whatever other things I need to get used to. Of course you readers would not be able to tell [...]

My Little Garden

| March 5, 2014

I have an indoor garden consisting of one plant. It’s super cute and it makes me feel good that there is at least one ingredient in my dishes that I grow myself. So far, I’ve used it in soup, asado (hmm, actually, it can be used in any soy sauce based dish), and even instant [...]

My April!

| May 4, 2013

In case you’ve been wondering, my April went by pretty well. I have been on my writing retreat, as I have begun to call it, for a full month. To have a better understanding of how I’ve been spending the time that I never had before, I have been keeping a record of my daily [...]

On Being “The Latest Viral Sensation”

| April 26, 2013

Yes. Apparently, that’s what I’ve become. Or more specifically, that’s what my 8List article on Candy Crush has become. I have to admit that I don’t really know what figure has to be crossed before earning the label “viral sensation” but I might as well own it. Mainly because it amuses me and I like being [...]
