Change in website Template

Many months/years later I'll have something to look back on in terms of how my old blog page looked like. Obviously this post has no tangible benefit to anyone other than for my own future reference.

I've grown tired of reading not-so-bright fonts on a dark background and I decided to change the appearance of the webpage to a simpler template. Dark font on white/bright background suits my mobile devices screen better. And on bigger screens, reading is much more at ease.

Old page, prior to 2012.

Love the new look! I used to design my own blog header (using Powerpoint can you believe it!!!) to save $ and well, cos I am quite kedekut when it comes to spending money on my blog then.

But I finally took the plunge and hired someone to do my blog header, and I love it so much! You can see my old header in this post (

Btw, about your question on what software I use for the image editing, I use PhotoScape. It's free for download and easy to use (I don't use all the functions anyway) Try it! :)
