    We never possess time in the same way we possess the money in our wallets.

    Be patient, don’t give up, and always be learning.

First Year in Vancouver

Last summer, I came to Vancouver BC to study for my second degree in computing science at SFU. Since then, I have been working part-time to support my study and life.

I gotta say it’s not easy at all, but I make it. At least, for the first year, everything works out as expected.

If i don't have class or don't need to go to the office, I'll work from the SFU library.

Vancouver – Summer 2015

Vancouver is a nice, peaceful and diversified city.

The city is built in a delta area, facing the Pacific Sea, and surrounded by primeval forests and snow mountains. Its residents come from all over the world.

It’s the place I’ve always wanted to visit.

ST George's School, a private high school, one of the best in Vancouver.

I LITE WordPress Theme is Now Open Source

I LITE is a minimal WordPress theme that was designed with love.

I designed and created it on Feb 2011 when I first started to learn web design and development. So basically it’s the first and experimental project I’d worked out.

Feel free to fork it on Github.
