The Inaugural Post
The holidays are killing me. Seriously, stray spores somehow made their way all over me and I’m fast becoming a breeding haven for MUSHROOMS.
Thank god for the enrolment day, which means Semester two is commencing! =D Funny how you always long for holidays when studying and long for classes while holidaying. And this is when I know perfectly well that i’ll be longing for the holidays as soon as I start the semester. The Irony.
Thankfully though, this holidays I had something to keep myself busy on (though not enough to keep the mushroom spores away). The result of which is what you’re looking at now. =)
Weee! Welcome to my blog’s spanking new home! xD
Finally, I have my very own domain! About damn time right? Oh, in case you haven’t yet know, this blog is named after my all-time favourite drink. XD And yeap, thats the answer for that mind-boggler I posted as a teaser on ember.stafa.us.
Camellia sinensis is the scientific name for that plant from which we get its leaves to make tea, that said, it’s extract essentially means simply, tea. H2O at minus 15 degrees is well, ice. Lactose, I admit it sucks but it symbolises milk. Anddd, sucrose is table sugar! I hear you shout ‘English!’ It’s pretty obvious now that you’re here and all but I’d still put it out for ya: mix tea, ice, milk, and sugar you’ll get ..drumroll please.. teh-C peng.
Wahaha, I hear you crying foul again. I know teh-C peng doesn’t use milk and sugar. Rather, it uses evaporated milk and gula melaka. But bear with me can? The latter are really processed products of the former. So technically, no harm substituting milk and sugar for the sake of this trivia. =P
I admit this is no teh-C peng, but rather coffee. Read why here. I’d say its teh-C panas. =P
Today is day my blog stood on its own legs, its own domain, its own hosting and its own spanking new look!
Of course, not forgetting its roots, I would like to thank my buddy back in Kuwait, Stafa, who kindly hosted my blog all these years without asking anything in return. Without your generosity I wouldn’t be blogging at all today. =D So here’s a big heartfelt thank you to you man!
I love these earphones, they effectively separate you from the bustling reality of life to savour humanity’s best creation — music.
So what’s exactly new on tehCpeng.net?
- We’ll begin with the most obvious — the new table-top themed look!
- Ajax commenting and comment editing capability
- Now comments you submit will appear instantly without the need to reload the page.
And best of all, you’ll get to edit not only your comments, but also your ‘name’ and ‘URL’ field for errors. (try it out below!) =P
- New 500px wide pictures. Used to be sized at 450px. They’re now enlarged for your viewing pleasure. =)
- (hopefully) faster loading times with my blog now hosted locally (Malaysia)
What is old, then?
- The author. — No I don’t mean old old, but it’s still the same old me behind the keyboard, whether you like it or not. xD
- Its contents — Apart from the revamped About page (you should check it out sometime), every single bloody post, page and comment was transferred over from ember.stafa.us. So yes, this is essentially a blog shift. =D
Oh, and if anything looks broken or weird, I’ll be glad if you’d notify me. I haven’t been able to test the new layout on every single platform, only those that I have access to.
And while I’m at it, a huge shoutout to all of you out there still using IE6. If you can find the words ‘Internet Explorer 6′ north of this page, that’s you: Maybe its time for you to consider changing your browser to better ones (seriously) or even upgrading your browser to IE7 to fully experience tehCpeng.net.
That said, welcome!
