We did a lot of cooking during the holidays, and I think these were my favorites. Ginataang Mackerel I love making ginataang mackerel (mackerel cooked in coconut milk), but this is the first time I actually chopped and cleaned a whole fish! I used to be grossed out watching people gut fish, but it turned […]
I recently released two new apps on itch.io: Caps Warlock and Alarm Pup. Caps Warlock is an AutoHotkey script that I’ve been working on to make the Caps Lock key more useful. It adds useful keyboard shortcuts to desktop apps like Figma, Firefox, and Sublime Text. It doesn’t support that many apps yet, but I’m […]
Here’s a summary of my donations this year! I’m continuing to donate to GiveWell through the Maximum Impact Fund. This money is granted to charities that save people’s lives by preventing deadly diseases like malaria (400k deaths/year) and vitamin A deficiency (200k deaths/year). I donated more to GiveDirectly than I did last year to give […]
I worked on the redesign of the dictionary instant answer on DuckDuckGo, and I’m happy that it’s finally out! It was one of the first things that I got to work on as a frontend engineer 9 years ago (!!), and I’m glad that I got to work on it again as a designer.
Last month we went to a Japanese garden in Philadelphia. Here are some photos that we took from that lovely garden.
I made a desktop app called Ear Transit! It’s a tiny tool that lets you listen to background noise on your computer even if you’re not connected to the internet. It currently has 4 background noises at the moment, but I’ll be adding more pretty soon. Right now it only runs on Windows, so I’m […]
I found out about AutoHotKey last week because I was looking for a lightweight alternative to Logitech Options. My plan was to remap the buttons on my mouse and be done with it. But after going through the AutoHotKey tutorial, I realized that it’s actually much more powerful than I thought. It got me excited […]
I have a messy collection of photos (with the occasional screenshots) because I never got in the habit of organizing them in the past. I’ve also been stupidly storing them in a lot of different places (iCloud, OneDrive, Dropbox, Instagram, etc.), so it’s a bit of a pain to get them all in one place. […]
Today I got to visit Longwood Gardens. If you’ve never been, it’s basically a huge plot of land filled with a wide assortment of beautiful and pristine-looking plants. I think the last time I visited was 6 years ago so I definitely need to go to this place more often. It was relaxing and it […]
Yesterday was my 30th birthday! I wanted to celebrate by going on a little weekend vacation. We usually travel, but we decided to stay local this time because of COVID’s resurgence. So we just drove to a different part of town just three miles outside of our apartment to staycation at a hotel for the […]
