I’ve finally completed the project I’ve been working on for the past 2 months today. I’ve just sent them a 40 page user manual and only left to provide a training; probably next week. It’s a small budget but quite a tough project. Though it was a headache and tiring to develop some parts of the project, I learnt new things which I can make use of in the future projects; overall, I’m satisfied with finished product and customer is also happy about it.

Great! Now I can move on to other matters and try to get back to blogging which I’ve been ignoring for so long. Got to update all those old plugins with new versions and got to clean up the spams on my blog. I forgot when was the last day I login to my blog to clean up spam.

Oh Yes!, I have a lot of Animes to catch up too. I’m following this 3 new animes. (more…)

I fell in love with Google Forms for quite some time now. I’ve been making a good use of it in number of occations such as software borrowing register, our company seminar registration forms and even for a small lunch pack order form like this one I’ve created for my friend’s Lovo order. (more…)

My brother, Aung a.k.a Zatlite, has started blogging yesterday after a few years of persuasion from me. He started off with twittering ,which was also the result of my persistent persuasion, and has been a good regular twitterer to date. Yesterday, he suddenly made himself a blog and now he’s crazy about it.

His very first blog, “The private life of a badminton maniac“, talks about all his passion on racquet sports, especially badminton and racquet breaking hobbies. I’ve posted some of his actions on the past Badminton games in this post and; photos and videos of his squash tournament here. (more…)

Just spreading this wonderful opportunity to all those travel bloggers who like to visit Indonesia and participate in this event. Early this year, I went to Bali for similar event; I had a great time there, met lots of people and learn new things. I wish I could go again, but I doubt it since I’m not really a travel blogger. Anyhow…the following is an abstract from the GV email I got, read on for detail info as well:

Pesta Blogger 2008

Indonesian Bloggers are having the 2nd national gathering next month on the November 22nd, last year we managed to get 500 bloggers from all over Indonesia to come.

This year hopefully we can get up to 1000 bloggers to attend the whole day event. The theme for this year is blogging for society.

Leading to that, as a part of the program to promote Indonesia tourism, supported by Indonesian Ministry of Cultural and Tourism, we would like to invite several international bloggers from any country to come and have a trip to three cities (Bali, Jogjakarta, Jakarta) in Indonesia leading to the event.

We are looking for bloggers (travel bloggers) that can post their experience, photos, people they meet, basically blogging about Indonesia and Indonesian people, and join the event.

The period for this trip is between Nov 17 – Nov 22 2009 and this is the itinerary:

  1. Denpasar, Bali (Mon, Nov 17 – Tue, Nov 18)
  2. Jogjakarta (Wed, Nov 19 – Thu, Nov 20)
  3. Jakarta (Fri, Nov 21 – Sat, Nov 22)

All expense will be covered, including flight ticket from your country to Indonesia and back.

And read more about the event in detail below. Their site is fully in Indonesian language but this is from email attachment and it’s in English, so dumping it directly here.


Rolled some Geeks

Nothing much, just dropping a short post during lunch time. I rolled 2 new blogs to my GReader recently. The first one is “Geek Dreams” written by Shiva; he recently commented on some of my posts and that’s how I visited/came to know his blog. And the second one is “Geek What” by Tony Chung; I came across his blog via Shiva’s blogroll links.

I don’t normally roll all commenters’ blogs but ofcos’ those I’m interested in only. (Well I do roll a lot of not so interesting blogs as well just for the sake of tracking news for GV). Here are the things that make me want to roll these guys’ blogs. First impression counts seriously.

Geek Dreams” got me with this dashing green frog. Where was he from again? hmm I think I’ve seen him on Sesame Street or something…There’s not much information in the “About” page but I did a bit of looking around and thought this guy must be someone linked to Paradise Not Found gang since he links to one of the members from the Paradise Not Found.

He also got some interesting posts about the concerts he went to and how he got IPhone etc. But the thing that make me laugh was this post where he gone crazy over Chris Martin’s hand gesture.

Woooohoooooooo!!!!! Oh my fucking god chris martin waved at me!!! Feel like a giddy school girl right now!! He saw me!!!! He saw me!!!! He waved back!!!!! Chris martin waved!!!! Don’t care if u call me crazy..chris martin waved at me!!!

There he really cracks me up. Obviously he seems crazy about Chris Martin, I wonder what he would do if Chris Martin shakes hand with him. Now that something I like to see. :P Alright, good enough, rolling now.

First impression on “Geek What” is that the site look pretty neat and informative. You can see his photo and a short intro on the header. Ok, seem like we are in the same age and somewhat similar tastes, he got my attention from there. He got pretty good write up on “About” page too, you get to understand more about the blogger. Anyways, I checked his about page only after I rolled his blog. I rolled him straight after checking out his very first vlog post. Actually I was thinking of trying out vlogging as well after reading much about citizen media and video blogging posts on GV and Raising Voices. So I thought, so this person just started it, I might as well learn some stuffs from him like what kind of thing he vlogs about blar blah. And I go click, click and there he is…

So what do you think? He accomplished his 1st vlog splendidly didn’t he, he did make people smile, at least I smiled, no, I LOL. I had a great laughing at his video. Actually I rewind and watched it 3 times (serious!) and every times he never failed to amuse me. That’s it, he got me with this one video, I just have to roll you boy. LOL :P

It’s a pity, I couldn’t see comment box on the post. I guess my Firefox Adblock Plus must have blocked it. He uses some kind of comment system and I can only see that on IE.

Do check his vlog post as well, the write up is fun too. I hope he doesn’t mind me embedding his video here.

Alrite that’s it I guess.

Freedom in your language

One of the GVers asked on mailing list, “How do you say freedom on your language?”. She’s doing some bookmarks and stickers with “Freedom” written in different languages or something….So lots of GVers answered her back in their language. Here are a few I noted from the list.
