The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 10 years to get that many views.

A Few Things Should Know to Enjoy Holiday at Singapore

with 2 comments

Going overseas for a holiday must be an exciting experience. However, it can be disastrous unless getting well prepared. There are a few things you should know while you are planning to stay in Singapore. Please note that this is based on my personal experience, so not everyone will get satisfied with this.

Get Your Smartphone Ready

There are several mobile carriers in Singapore, but I would recommend SingTel as it is the biggest and most reliable. It is the same as KT in South Korea and Telstra in Australia. If you want to buy a prepaid SIM, go to currency exchange service once you get out of the custom.

There are, of course, heaps of service retailers, but using the currency exchange service next to the door of the custom is the easiest and fastest way. The currency exchange service is located in Terminal 2 but I’m pretty sure that the same currency exchange service selling the prepaid mobile SIM must exist in the other two – Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.

Depending on your days of stay, you will be asked to buy a different amount, but $28 prepaid plan is the most common. Once you choose this plan, the service staff will setup your mobile phone to use SingTel, such as APN or something like that. Once your phone gets ready to use, you will be asked to call *363 to get your mobile phone ready to use mobile broadband service. Then you will get a text message from SingTel. Follow the instruction of the text message. The most common data plan is 1GB for 7 days for $7. After the 7 days expiration, you can just add $1 for additional 10MB for 7 days with the remainder rolled over. That $7 and extra $1 is deducted from $28 that you have paid already. How cool, isn’t it?

Store Your Excessive Baggage

Each terminal has got a baggage storage service. If you have a few suitcases that you do not need while staying in Singapore, you can simply leave them to the baggage storage service. It costs about $5 per day per bag. But remember that you should let them know about your next flight schedule to get your baggage prepared to pick up later on.

Get Tourist Pass Ready

If you want to use public transport in Singapore, using Tourist Pass will be the best option for your budget. It costs only $20 for unlimited number of travels for three days using subway trains – MRT and LRT – and buses. The pass is sold at the airport station, but its operating time is very limited – 12.00 to 15.45 and 16.45 to 19.30. So, you should ask any staff at the visitor centre for more information about that. If you arrive outside the time span, you should go to another station to buy the pass. Make sure that your children must pay for the same fee unless their height goes under 0.9 metre. If you provide your children’s passport to prove that they are less than 7 years old, they will get $15 discount.

We have reviewed three things that you should know before enjoying Singapore. If you are well planned and well prepared, your travel will be much better than expected.

To-do list for this week

leave a comment »

Obviously both WordPress and CodeIgniter are very popular framework for PHP developers. Both are quite different from each other, though, there must be a way to integrate. Well, let’s have a look.

  • To develop the integration tool between WordPress and CodeIgniter by web services
  • To separate the login for admin by WordPress from the site login for general users by CodeIgniter
  • To customise Twitter Tools, in terms of displaying date – should follow the WordPress setting
  • To fix the CSS for the Disqus comment box

What else? Too many? Let’s do this!

Shappa Soccer Cartoons RSSed – 샤빠의 축구카툰들을 RSS로 모아서 보자

Shadarappa, AKA Shappa, is one of the most famous cartoonists in Korea. He largely focuses on K-league and Europe leagues in UK, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

The following RSS feed URLs are his cartoons. Currently, he posts three different places with different topics.

Enjoy his humour! 🙂


샤빠의 축구 카툰을 RSS로 돌려볼 수 있게 됐다. 현재는 세군데로 나뉘어져 있는 것을 그냥 따로따로 놨는데, 나중에 이걸 하나로 합칠 수도 있지 싶다. 지금은 귀찮아서 걍 세군데 따로 해놨음.

일단 즐기셔~
