WordPress 3.3 Beta

With a sense of curiosity, I decided to give WordPress 3.3. Beta 3 a try. Well, guess what? Besides the fanciful stuffs, such as new:

  • Media uploader
  • Improved admin bar
  • Fly out admin menus

I realised I could not upload any image on this post. It may have got something to do with my plugin. So I’m going to check it out to see if that’s the case.

In addition, the new beta release seems no longer “respect” the function, $user_level. Not sure if it’s only me, but it is what’s happened to my script.

Motivational Picture

Poster by Keith NeoIn one of the exercises, we were asked to make posters for ourselves. I picked one from a photo album, from which the photo was taken in Republic of Ireland (maybe United Kingdom).

I cannot remember the exact name of this place, but it is a river with strong current. It shows how powerful the forces of nature is, and the erosion that comes along with the forces.

It is almost helpless if anyone would have fallen into the river. So, respect nature.

Won $30 dENiZEN Voucher

October 16, 2011 · Posted in Rant Corner · 2 Comments 

20111016-145452.jpgAbout 3 weeks ago, I bought a McDonald’s meal and was presented with this promotion. The restaurant was (and probably still on-going now) offering in conjunction with Monopoly to give its customers a chance to win prizes.

I was surprised when I tore off one of the tabs, which presented me with:

$30 dENiZENTM VOUCHER!
INSTANT WIN

I was absolutely delighted. Now, the joy turns into disappointment after I visited the store itself…

At the dENiZEN (LEVI’s) store, I was greeted politely by the staff – I remembered that time I was at the Novena branch. The first thing she responded when I asked about the the redemption of the voucher was that I needed to choose a jean (which costs at least $80 and above) and is not valid for other products, apart from Jeans!!

What is that all about? Alright, so that $30 voucher is subject to terms and conditions… I simply walked out of that store immediately.

WhatsApp is Available Free for iPhone Today – 16 October 2011

WhatsApp for iPhone or iPad

What a surprise today when I logged on to Apple’s AppStore this morning and found out that WhatsApp is offering its iPhone users free to download this application. It used to cost US$0.99 to purchase this app.

If my memory serves me well, I recalled that WhatsApp also offered this one-day promotion to iPhone users several months back. A lot of users took the opportunity to download this application onto their iPhone (and probably iPad now).

This is one of the most reliable Internet text messaging service that I know of. For those who missed out the offer, do quickly download the apps from Apple iTune or AppStore via your Apple device. Whilst stock last!

Looking out from the windows of ward 62 within the KK Women and Children’s Hospital (KKH) is a view of Newton Circle (not shown on the image). The skyline shows rows of shophouses and construction on-going within the vicinity.

What are your thoughts?
