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.

Korea – May 2014

Allow me to me frank, during my 5-day trip there, Korea had nothing to surprise me, except two things.

One was its net speed. Every hotel, both large and small, provided 20 ~ 100+ mega bit per second high-speed broadband. Every where, you can just pick up your mobile phone and find numbers of stable, open and free wifi within seconds.

Another thing was a bit troublesome. Unless in Soul, which is the capital city, it’s really difficult to find someone who can speak English. After 5 minutes of explanation, the saleswoman still couldn’t get what I wanted to buy was just a piece of postcard.  Moreover, the very few English words on the buildings and billboards did very little help to a lost man.

My first breakfast in Korea. Totally western style.

My Career So Far

Actually I wanted to start this article like “My Career as a Web Designer and Developer So Far” at first, but suddenly I think of Joya. She said to me, the other day, that only Falcon and Lincoln were the real developers in the company, she wasn’t. If this is true, what am I supposed to be? Thus, I decided to write it like a story.

Thanks Amy for the Mac and the chance to Design.
