Happy Eid ul-Fitr & blogging break

Muslims worldwide will be celebrating the Eid ul-Fitr by end of the month, and Malaysians in particular are in joyous mood as the Eid holiday will coincide with our Independence Day, making it a long holiday for many folks.

Happy Eid ul-Fitr 2011 Holiday

I’m taking this chance to have a break as well. My life is a bit jaded for the past few months, it’s time to take a rest and re-prioritise some stuff. There will be no updates on this blog for the rest of August, will be back in early September.

Happy Eid to all Muslims, happy holiday fellow Malaysians, good days everyone.

New blog theme [updated]

First major blog template switch since 2007. The previous theme was self customised; it worked pretty well, but due to technical issues it’s time to get a more professional template, which provides some extra functions beside a different look.

For the record, the old blog template looked something like this…

YeinJee old blog template

If you prefer the old standard blog format, you can follow the “Blog” or “All Blog Posts” link (http://yeinjee.com/blog/) at the top navigation bar. You might want to update your bookmark/favourite as well, for your future convenient.

The template switch should have no effect on RSS/email subscribers.

Btw, some of you might be using the old RSS address. You should still be able to receive blog updates, but to ensure any unwanted interruption in future, kindly check that you are subscribed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/yeinjee and not other feed address.

Feedbacks are welcome. Sorry for the trouble, if there’s any.

Happy Lunar New Year 2010

Chinese New Year is arriving on Sunday. This would be the first time I’m not celebrating it in Malaysia; an early wish to my family and friends… Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Sharing a CNY song (a rare English one) by Malaysian songwriter Lleon. Simple tune, cute animation, fitting theme (it’s the year of tiger in Chinese calendar)…

Best wishes as well to the all other folks who are celebrating the lunar new year.
