I have seen a few posts suggesting how to customize SublimeText for better drupal development, although I did not see any mention of and not sure how SublimeText2 would recognize my custom module's .module as php file and show the various color highlighting for it.

Currently it just treats my .module file as an unknown file and does not show any color highlighting on it.

When you have the .module file open, go to:

View -> Syntax -> Open all with current extension as

and select PHP. This will then default all .module files to use PHP syntax.
