The Fasting Challenge

The idea is to abstain from any form of pleasure for one month in order to raise awareness for world poverty & famine.

You need to either fast for one month or donate money to charity — or both.

Oh, wait. This has been happening every year for over a millennium. It’s more commonly known as “Ramadan”.

P.S. This was in no way meant as an insult to people who suffer from ALS.

I decided to release the code of MetroMate (both iOS & Android). It’s been just sitting on my computer for months gathering dust. I already mentioned before that I won’t be maintaining it anymore.

If you’re interested in checking out the code, here it is. Certainly not some of the most beautiful code I’ve written though…

My latest project, Scapes Messenger, is out. Do check it out. To get the most out of it, get your friends to try it! :) appsto.re/ae/mbE8R.i

I find it rather silly & pointless these days to curate & maintain an online profile (e.g. Instagram) for the purpose of letting the whole world that I’m having a sandwich or a cup of coffee.
Snapchat seems to be a much more appropriate medium for doing that. Either way, I cleared out a lot of my old Instagram posts (pics of coffee, food, places). Those days are over.

My views towards Android have slowly changed over the past couple of weeks. I’m beginning to like what Google’s doing with it. I feel excited to download Android Studio (was using Eclipse before, a total nightmare) right now & start working on an Android port of Scapes.

Overslept & woke up 2 minutes before my programming final was to begin. Finished with 30 minutes to spare. Today was a good day.

I have to study for a final on Saturday, but I just can’t pull myself away from my code. :(

I published MetroMate for Android on January 1. For some reason, I didn’t tell people till today. So go get it on Google Play!

Congratulations man! I tweeted it out a few days back but I guess another one wouldn’t hurt. Too bad I don’t have many…

Finally got the hang of this.

How the hell do you reply on Tumblr? I can’t figure it out. :D
Thanks, mate! Really appreciate the love. :)
