Remembering death, reminds the future

February 26, 2015 – The past few weeks we have been enjoying our hearts out; today we are reminded that we will one day return back to our creator. It’s a subtle reminder for all of us to keep our feet on the ground and remember our purpose, our responsibility and our creator.

On our the last day in Labunishta, we were invite to Jenazah Prayer where we pray for the one who left us in this world. It was an unexpected invitation and something we can’t refuse; an experience we won’t miss. To see how they do it half way around the world. Read More


Crazy wind, Stupid mountain

I arrived at the bus station just around noon; At this point, you can’t imagine how excited I am to be joining this journey and to explore more places than I have ever taught. The places I could go and enjoy the beauty is limitless.

Soon after, I met Adib and Han at our rendezvous point which is the cafe near the bus station. I was shocked to see that they’re both with their bicycle fully loaded as the initial plan was to stay in Kotor for few more days until they finish the GeGo Live Interview. Read More


Sun, Rain, Snow in Stavanger

There’s something about the sun I can never really tell; It’s the love and hate relationship I have coming from Asia and being in Europe. The absence of it makes you depress and too much of it irritates you.

The clouds here are gargantuan that you have a feeling that it is as huge as the land it covers. The thickness blocks away the richness of the rays and there isn’t a slight feeling of the warmth it is supposed to provide. The weather here changes faster than you can change your clothes as you’ll experienced sun, snow, rain and strong wind in a span of several hours in the winter. Read More


Journey to Homeland

A week after “Journey to Homeland” flags off in London; I started my backpacking journey in Europe starting from France and during my travel, there’s several occasion where I said to my self that I wish I could stop this bus and enjoy the scenery. If you say it enough times, it will become your prayers and mine was answered.

After three months of traveling, I met them in Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina). That morning, I was exploring the city on my own and I notice a guy leaning on the wall while using his phone. He looked familiar and I decided to say hello and asked if he’s the cyclist from Malaysia. After brief introduction, he invited me to the house for a drink but later decided that we should go out instead. They told their stories during lunch, places they went, people they met and I became interested in the idea. Read More


Macbook 5,1 Core 2 Duo with 8GB RAM DDR3

After a week of deciding to purchase memory upgrade to 4GB or 8GB. I finally decided on taking the risk of upgrade it to the maximum hardware limit of my Macbook 5,1; 8GB. During those time I did some research and did not find any good review. Mostly said that its unstable and requires reboot after several minutes using them.

It’s been almost a week since the upgrade and I did not bump into any issues and felt a lot better now considering that I have more memory to use and allows me to open more application and leave them minimized if not used.

LVM: Resizing swap Logical Volume

Logical Volume Manager is a Linux tool for managing your partition. LVM allows you to have the ability to play around with partition size and/or combine multiple hard disk to create partition across all the combined hard disk. The LVM-HOWTO explains its function and how you could benefit from it.

Resizing swap partition is a little bit different but a lot easier. Since we are not concern over the swap partition’s content and resize2fs doesn’t support swap partition; we can safely re-size the logical volume and re-format the partition to update its partition size. In the example below, PART 1 shrinks the swap partition from 8GB to 4GB and PART 2 increases the partition back to 8GB.

Display content for member's only using shortcode

While doing a website for a client of mine, one of the requirement was to show content to subscribers or members only. Although there is a plugin for this but I stumble upon a much simpler script. For more details, you can visit for the full how to.

Since the tutorial only teach you how to create them through functions.php inside your theme files, I’ve made some modification towards the aesthetics of it. Obviously, we would want to display the login and register link for easy access to our viewers. Here is my code which you can place them inside functions.php located in your theme folder. If it’s not there, just create one. Read More
