A New Theme A Year Later

It’s been one whole year since my last post. As I grow older, I have come to realize how short 24 hours a day really is. There are so many things to do, so many things to experience that, I guess, sharing the little observations about my life has found itself much lower on my…


New Theme on Nanyate.com: Flow

Finally, after 1.5 years, I’ve grown tired of the last theme and re-designed nanyate.com.

New Theme Finalized, New Plugins & Code

Sorry for the lack of blogging and commenting. When I start designing a new theme, I will code and re-code until I’m happy with it. Looks like someone has a tendency for obsessive-compulsive disorder. 😯 Just kidding… I’m just a being a perfectionist. Anyway, I’m proud to bring you the final release of Yukata Summer,…
