So it is confirmed that I will be going to Ipoh, Malaysia again in mid-March. My dad entrusts me to be my mom and aunt's guide. I'll be staying there for 6 days so in that 6 days, I'd probably won't be doing any updates so please don't worry if I don't respond to your messages/emails.

I've been wanting to sell stuff online. Thing is, I don't have anything to sell. I do have some old stuff which have never been used and still in good conditions. But I have not considered the packaging and shipping costs so I don't know if I should go for this whole online business thing. However, I've already worked on a blogshop layout which, if I ever get to carry on with this online business thingamajig, I'd probably use this layout. It's actually an old blogshop layout I designed some time ago but I've modified (that involves adding and deleting) some features so now it has a pagination feature which allows customers to navigate through the products without ever leaving the page. If you want to check out the website (I've put it as a demo page on my portfolio website), you can access it here: http://amalinakasim.com/blogshop/

On an entirely different note, I seriously despise people who are going around posting religious quotes and reminders on Facebook when they're not exactly good role models for the said religion. Practice what you preach before haunting other people with your self-righteous posts. Damn these people just get on my nerves. The reason why I'm ranting about this is because lately lots of people have started doing this. They're probably nervous because December is only 10-months away now1.


1 There's this widespread belief that the world is going to end in December 2012. Thanks, Hollywood.

My mom's planning to go to Ipoh again this coming March during the school holidays. To be honest, I'm kind of divided as to whether I want to come along or not. Half of me wants to go for the sake of experience, but the other half just wants to stay cooped at home. Another reason why I don't really want to come along is because the airfare is expensive, considering the trip will be during school holidays so it stands to reason that the fare is pretty outrageous1.

On another note, I've finally have my Lutari2 painted! It's so bleeding hard to get the paintbrush I want (Faerie Paintbrush) and I had to resort to get the help from a third-party to obtain the paintbrush.

1 Outrageous as in the customers' point of view. But to the airline company it's a pretty reasonable price. They need to be making money, after all.

2 One of the pets which you can obtain by playing Neopets.

Just an idea

Valentine's Day is coming up. I've a feeling I won't be allowed to go out with my man on this day (sucks to be dependant on parents, really). However, I decided to treat myself with a gift though it might arrive late. I just purchased this:

Dior's Hypnotic poison
Hypnotic Poison fragrance by Dior

I love this perfume so very much, but I'm not going to rant about it here. You can head over to my personal website here to read more on the perfume. But seriously, if you've smelled it once, you'll definitely going to be hypnotised by it. Amazing fragrance. *thumbs up to Dior*

I'm thinking of expanding Codeislove into something more than just a tutorial/advice/tips shack. I'd like to try to have advertising services too. I think it'll be a great way to generate revenue but at the same time providing more than just tutorials/tips to the visitors. But of course, this is just an idea. It might not even going to see the light of the day.

Sore loser

I'm sooo glad (and relieved) now that the giveaway is over. It's been such a tough task, weeding out incomplete entries, unqualified websites/blogs, etc. It's just difficult when people don't abide by the rules even though the rules were already stated there in plain view.

And just now I saw the Dislike box for the 'Winners, announced' entry has one tick. It kind of amazes me why would anyone dislike it? The only logical explanation that I could think of is that one of the participants are not exactly happy with the outcome and decided to 'Dislike' the post. Sore loser, are we? But let me make this clear, I did not pick the winners. The names were put into the raffle system and the outcome was made by the machine. I did not influence it in any way whatsoever. Besides, nobody likes a sore loser. Plus, this is a contest. You either win or lose. Be a good sport and accept the result. Is that so hard to take in?

By the way, I also want to talk about this money-making system. I'm pretty sure many people have heard of Advertlets.com.



Advertlets.com is...
... an Asian blog/weblog advertising network that offers the remarkably sensible proposition of targeted, unintrusive advertising that benefits the online advertising and blogger community, as well as their readers.

Basically it is a centre where advertisers and bloggers can come together where the common target here is advertising. Advertisers sign up to get more traffic to their websites (and buy their products/services) and they rely on the bloggers to display those ads on their websites. Bloggers in turn, make money from those ads they display on their websites.

Okay it is finally time to announce the winners for the domain giveaway. I am sure that all the participants are as excited as I am.

EDIT// Okay I apparently put in one of the participants' name twice and both names were in the winners' list so I will have to draw up the name again. Whoopsie.

Right, I've compiled all the qualified participants name into a list, and I used Random.org to draw the names of the winners.

1. Filip
2. Taryn
3. Angie
4. Daisy
6. Stephie
7. Nicole
8. Rainy
9. Janice

[No. 5 was removed because I accidentally put one name twice]

After putting the names into the random number generator, here are our 3 lucky winners (winners are selected from the top 4 names that appear in the list) from the first draw.:

4. Daisy
2. Taryn
9. Janice


And here's the final winner (after that embarrassing error (thanks to Filip for pointing it out)):
3. Angie

Congratulations people! I shall be contacting the winners soon to discuss about the prizes. To those who aren't so lucky this time, not to worry, there will be other opportunities in the future (probably in June). I thank you all for your participations. :)

The drawing up of the first 3 names can be seen from the video here:


And the drawing up for the fourth winner is in this picture below:

The designer

Kitty

Kitty. 27. Blogger, web design hobbyist, compulsive shopper and bibliophile based in Brunei. Enjoys creating and designing websites, dabbling with HTML, CSS and PHP.

Among the interwebs community, I am generally known as Kitty. I hold a bachelor degree in Social Science Education, majoring in History and currently I am pursuing a Masters degree in South East Asian Studies. I enjoy talking to my online friends. You could say I have more friends in the cyberworld than in real life. Because it is easier for me to talk to people without looking at them in the face; I'm a shy person and I'm very self-conscious on how I look. I don't know what people think about me so I'd leave that to you to figure out yourself.

I've been blogging since 2005 (or earlier) though my experience with the internet started back in 2000. My main interest is in web design and development. Other times you can see me wrapped around a book or glued to Astronomy and web design magazines.

The website

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.

Several of the tutorials and articles can also be found on Nekonette.com, which is the my main website where I mostly blog about my personal life. Also some of the tutorials here have been moved to that website.
