Just some miscellaneous shtuff. May be used to complement certain projects I'm involved in.
Practical Lab Sites
Towards the later period of my time teaching in Taylor's College, I decided to try out hosting my practical lab work on GitHub Pages, simply to first gain experience using VuePress v1 and to emulate the idea my supervisor at the time from Sunway University used for his classes. For the most part, it's been successful at keeping everything much more organized and easier to add more material as a result.. not to also mention the ease of accessibility and readability. Now, the active ones are created using Material for MkDocs.
Have a look around! I intend on keeping them up for as long as I can. If I end up in another teaching career that would benefit from a new classwork site, I will include them here.

About SnowTrap ❄️
SnowTrap, my Snow Pea persona is based on the plant of the same species from the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. The Snow Pea currently stands as my favorite - for some time I've used the generic stock image of it from the PvZ Fan Kit, all the way until March 2021 when I first decided I wanted a Snow Pea to call my own. With that, I enlisted Lucy's help in designing SnowTrap. Well, mostly his hat. The only real instruction I gave Lucy at the time was to use colors that one could see on an orange lolly for the snow hat, and now he's that sweet little gremlin that's pretty unique and now currently stands in as a unique visual online identity.
As far as how I conjured the name itself, I was just adamant about incorporating the name "Laptrap" from the ClueFinders educational series at the time.. and it stuck on alright so far, silly as it may be!
Adopted from David Blazing's lawn one day, this little sentient one now currently lives with his owl pal. Little is known about how he sprouted from his flower pot and started walking during the year his beaked friend turned 17, but what's more intriguing is how he honestly has no clue how he did it. (A polygraph has been used to authenticate and verify his thoughts.) He still requires generous amounts of water to sustain himself, and is able to withstand some cold temperatures but still thrive in room temperature. His heat tolerance is similar to that of a normal human being, beyond that.
He also strongly emphasizes this point to debunk any wrong speculation surrounding his relationship to his pal: HE IS NOT A PET.
