Now in the progress to draw on watercolor paper. Coloring will be done after Hari Raya.

Webify Me!

I came across this quiz from LadyJava‘s blog and found it very interesting. I took the quiz and here’s my result:

my web

If you click on the image, it’ll lead you to the permalink and click on each item to know what it means.

Here are some that I copied from Webify Me:

  • Sketchbook– Entire worlds can be captured within a little sketchbook, worlds both real and imagined. You use many different tools to communicate your vision, Traveler.
  • Date Book– You know what’s next; you have it all written down in your date book -the symbol of The Organizer. You’re the one we turn to when we are in doubt, for you hold the answers.
  • Instant Photo – The instant memory, quickly frozen and indelibly saved. Yours is the nostalgic type, pouring over cherished images and captured moments.
  • Business Card – The mark of the professional — you’ve defined yourself in the business world, and earned a fancy title for your efforts.

So…..do you want to know what does your unique Web look like? All you have to do is answer 20 simple questions and voila! Webify Me will automatically make you a custom collage. Isn’t the Web awesome?

Try THE QUIZ. It’s fun!
