Heyya all, it has been a while.
I have been very occupied with working life, family and friends. Although not being fair to blogspot just coz facebook has been a much preferred social network to me, still I do think I need to be committed here and I have not forgotten that.
Anyways not forgetting that this post is about my website, I realized my online portfolio website 'www.hanisazarea.com' has expired. This website contains a compilation of my work, although they are mostly college/uni works, they stated my obvious trademark. Since I have set my budget to my small Dadih business and Hari Raya Collection for ladies, I'll be renewing my domain next month. I have new stuff to put in too! So hopefully everyone will get to take a peep once it's been renewed! Til then...

Back in TOA, we had a lot of classes which involve on skills. So one of them was the "HTML Class", okay obviously I forgot the name of the class but anyways it's a class of building a basic html website.
I was really bad at it. It was really hard for me to catch up and the thing about me at that time was that, I always first created a theme based on a typical or a vague idea. That's why I always found myself changing the idea at least for a couple of times and only get to solve this problem last minute.
Oh well, I completed the website. It wasn't perfect at all. I submitted with at least 20% of defects. Somehow they look perfect and presentable. Anyways I got B for that and I know I suck at it, I kept thinking that awh forget about it man it's not like I'm going to be a web designer someday.
Until it reaches to the point where most of my friends have their own websites. And it was the end of the year, we were all about to graduate. Everyone was producing a business card with their Website address on it. Clients, employers, bosses about to grab these cards at our exhibition, view these sites online once they got back to their office, and... hire these students with websites. BUT I didn't have one.
Well then, I doodled. bit of research. Amazingly after that I completed a very simple website layout on Photoshop. Of course this is after I graduated from TOA.
Then I stopped for awhile as I took up a job temporarily to fill up my time. After that, I flew to Bristol for my Degree.
In Bristol, if you don't party there's nothing much to do at night except for being caught up in the room, watching movies, reminiscing hometown, getting assignments done, eat, sleep and yea.
One night out of the blue moon, with a lot of hesitations I opened up Dreamweaver and started to discover again on how it works. Slowly I tried to catch up. I did not have any other specific aims but to just complete a website of mine. That's it.
Then again, I completed a website. This time, I have mastered in creating a basic html website using Dreamweaver. But one thing I was not satisfied, is the design of my website. And so I realized that I did not master on the Design. I didn't like the fonts that I used, I wasn't satisfied with the color. So I hang on to the same website move on with other things while at the back of my mind I knew I have to recreate again.
Since then a lot of things happened, I finished my Degree course and I came back here to Malaysia, I started taking up small jobs and worked in a small design company. Again I forgot about the website.
Last month I went to Bristol again with my dad and my brother for my graduation. I was inspired again as I witnessed some of the course mates that get first class in their degree, they look flawless. Again I visited the country that I spent for a year of my life. How I neglected some of the important things there, things that I should have done there. I figured that sometimes, I FORGET.
So then I started building my website a day after I reached back home and because I was inspired I get my website done in 3 days. It was officially launched on facebook Nov,24th.
I was very glad that I have a number of skillful and design oriented friends that pointed out the things that can be improved on my website. I have been keeping up with them ever since.
So here's the masterpiece! Do visit my Online Portfolio website. I am hungry for comments, negative and positive feedbacks are most welcome. What doesnt kill me will only make me stronger!
