a few of my favorite places

What's yours?

Muir Woods + Tiburon

Yesterday was Martin Luther King Jr. Day and some of my friends didn't need to go to work so we decided to visit Muir Woods National Monument and hiked.

Solo day trip to Sausalito

I have been contemplating taking a day trip to Sausalito and I finally did it yesterday. Had lots of fun exploring this little town and saw amazing houseboats for the first time in my life. It's a good day. The brief ride on the Golden Gate ferry was surprisingly pleasant too. Might do it again sometime in the near future.

Life of Pi - movie poster remake

"I surrender. What more do you want?"
"And when I was beyond all hope of saving, he gave me rest. Then he gave me a sign to continue my journey."

Eiréné - nameisirene.com


After almost three days of battling with html, I've finally finished my new portfolio website and am very pleased with its overall look. Never would I thought that I'll be able to code my own website! Doing a happy-chandler-dance right at this moment. 

Here's a list of resources that I've found very helpful while coding the site:
01. Get SkeletonSkeleton is a small collection of CSS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17" laptop screen or an iPhone.

02. Chirp.js - It's a javascript plugin that allows you to display your latest tweet on your website.

03. Fontsquirrel - I'm sure you all have already known about its Font-Face Generator feature. Yes? 

04. House of Coffee - Man do they make good coffee! Their stuff kept me fresh and awake until 4 am every night.

p.s. Also gave myself a rebrand and I hope it will stick this time.

Castle [unofficial] Trailer

Taught myself Adobe Premiere Pro a couple of days ago and what better project to start with than cutting a Castle trailer? I am a huge Castle fan and that is a huge understatement for my love towards this show. More people need to know about Castle! Yes, you! If you aren't watching the show, I hope this trailer will change your mind.
