Sweden With Love was a ClickWP project for Ulrica Wihlborg. It features a custom WordPress theme built on the Genesis Framework. Jo Klima from The Darling Tree created the design while I was responsible for coding the theme and site implementation.
Earlier today I got into a conversation with Pei Chyi about the mobile phones we’ve used before. I’ve only ever used Apple and Nokia phones (with 1 anomaly on the list) and if I couldn’t have an iPhone today I would still use a Nokia. Windows Phone is more appealing to me than Android.
It’s fun recalling the epitome of consumer technology of years past as the exercise makes you appreciate what you have now even more. Without further ado, I present to you the complete list of David Wang has ever owned.
My first ever mobile phone was the venerable Nokia 3210, arguably the best mobile phone ever made. Acquired after Sixth Form in 1999, it wasn’t the latest and greatest but it was my old faithful. Since there were no apps to buy, I spent money on different coloured covers and keypads – mine was red with gel buttons. And who needed apps, when you had Snake? Battery life for SMS and Snake was incredible too, especially since it only had a monochrome 84 x 48 pixel / 32 x 22 mm screen.
My next phone came into my possession through some rather dubious means… I found it on the sidewalk, really! I was really happy to have found the phone too, since it was the bee’s knees with it’s butterfly-shaped button and blue backlight! Don’t remember anything else about this phone though.
My next phone was my first camera phone. On top of that it had a color display! It wasn’t a very popular model, but it was in my opinion better than the silly Nokia 7260 or Nokia 3200 that were it’s contemporary peers. I remember snapping crappy pics every opportunity I could but everything else about the phone was pretty forgettable.
Last Sunday I ran the 10km (Speed) race at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon. It was such a great experience for me and I’m already looking forward to next year.
I got a big kick weaving my way through the pack at the beginning of the race, running alongside thousands of fellow runners in downtown KL, disrupting traffic and running flat out at the finish line.
The event is the most popular road race in Malaysia and this year saw a record-breaking 33,000+ runners. SCKLM had to be postponed from its original date in June due to the haze situation, but the event last week was top notch. I felt that it was really well-organized and let the runners really enjoy the race. Read More »
Happy 50th birthday! As we celebrate this milestone together, I’m reminded of how much I love you. I love your awesome natural wonders, your beautiful people, your colorful celebrations and your delicious food.. mmm, I love me a good nasi lemak.
Of course, things aren’t always great. No country is perfect. I don’t blame you, I blame the twats who have grown thick in the head after staying in power for so long. I’m sure we’ll fix the problem in time.
Malaysia is my home and I’m proud to call myself Malaysian. I love you more each year and I want my children to love you as much as I do.
Happy Malaysia Day, and may you grow ever more beautiful every year.
