A Fresh New Look
It’s been a while I haven’t posted here :D! With my recent announcement over my LiveJournal that this will be my new permanent spot for my personal journal. And sort of adding that personal touch, I finally got around and creating a fresh look for it.
And lo and behold, the new look is already up and running - though at the time of writing (27 June 2009) Internet Explorer users may end up seeing a less optimal site, since I haven’t got around fixing the theme yet (looking forward to making it work this weekend though).
Developing this theme has been quite a feat to me, which I style it with pure CSS with minimal cruft and I also experimented with CSS3 text-shadows (to view the full effect, do use Firefox 3 …Continue Reading (491 words, 2 minute read)
High productive workspace setup with dual monitors
A month ago, I’m lucky to receive a 24” monitor to be used with my current laptop at work.

A Day in Life: The Beginning
And finally, the revamp that I have been holding off for so long: felixleong.com is now revived. Spent almost the whole Christmas to port my old manga tutorial up. Now having that up, it’s time to focus on my next small project :).
Designing the next steps
Recently having spending more time between reading personal development books at a more intense pace and design new themes for my future websites. The one here will be the new look for felixleong.com, which I renamed it to be “A Day in Life” from the previous “Felix Leong: Pedagogies”. The renaming was part of my attempt to change my focus and probably transform it as a more personal homepage from the manga drawing tutorial page.
During the design I was a bit unsure whether I wanted to mark a fullstop to this LiveJournal and having my entries over to my personal website instead… considering that now I keep track with blog updates using RSS feeds lately and I rarely had any LJ friends-only posts that I really keep up to often. Either way, should …Continue Reading (395 words, 2 minute read)
