More updates to the blog
I have customized the admin page for some better “Jeng” branding. Plus, I have added some cool fonts to the blog UI. WordPress is surely an awesome website and blog system. Personally, I am doing this just to impress non-other than myself, and to make sure I still have my PHP, web and graphic design skills; and I am getting the hang and high of Inkscape.

I am now trying the WordPress Android client. Here goes.
Germany is the 2014 World Cup champion
It was surely one of the best match I’ve seen in my life. As a so-so football fan, it was the best decision ever to went to the viewing party at Kelana Jaya, well, since I am a hardcore HyppTV user. (HyppTV don’t get to air the World Cup 2014 match even if it was aired from TV1)
Quoting from Reuters as what other bloggers do/did:
Germany are champions of the world again after snatching victory against Argentina in the soccer showpiece with a superb extra-time goal from baby-faced Mario Goetze to lift the trophy for the first time since 1990.
Hatched from the agony of their recent near-misses, Germany’s triumph secured a fourth World Cup title – their first since the country was reunited 24 years ago – with a nail-biting 1-0 win in Sunday’s final at the sprawling Maracana.
The win, sealed by substitute Goetze’s brilliantly taken strike in the 113th minute, marked the first time a European country had won the sport’s greatest prize in the Americas, although this World Cup was ultimately a triumph for all.
P/S: My first real blog post, finally.
This should be good
I have fixed the logo to the blog. Added some categories too. Oh. I haven’t yet put up new pages like I planned earlier. Need to always get some cool 750×410 pixel image so that each post will look awesome, even though the content is borderline rubbish.
Oh, did I mentioned that all these was made using all open-source software? I used my favorite Linux Mint (of course) and all images edited/created using GIMP and Inkscape.
Yeah, that image I put up, that’s me feeling a bit hipster-ish. Haha.
My first draft of Jeng Adventure graphics
Here it is. My first draft for the graphics. Hope you (I) will like it. I have to remember to always put the image that I wanted to flaunt as the “featured image”, then the post will be like this.
