Bad Programming

As Vodafone has extended its free txt promotion, weekend here (New Zealand) is a good time to txt your friends without worrying about losing your phone credit. It's when people start to sharing jokes or even some nonsense stuff via txting. And at the same time, it is a good time to annoy your friends. The most annoying txt is when it's sent letter by letter and what they do is type it in letter by letter manually but with the existence of Python for mobile phone Serie 60 (and I'm sure they Python for other mobile devices as well) we can do it easily. Below is a few lines of code to automate that manual process.

import appuifw
import messaging

data = appuifw.query(u"Message: ", "text")
nbr = appuifw.query(u"Phone Number: ", "text")
txt = unicode(data);

if appuifw.query(u"You sure wanna send?","query") == True:
for i in txt:
messaging.sms_send(nbr, i)
appuifw.note(u"Messages sent", "info")

From this code and with a very lil knowledge of programming you can modify it to make it send word by word or a reversed message. Enjoy :) !

Today's Roadtrip

We had another roadtrip today accompanied by Itt, Sang, and Bex. We headed South Auckland to Mangatangi dam and Waihihi bay. There's nothing special about this trip actually. We made it because I were bored and didn't know what to do. During a drinking session last night, Itt suggested that we should go to these places. It started off with a sunny sky but ended with a gloomy weather. Oh it wasn't too bad though because everyone seemed to be happy after all and I enjoy taking photos in any lighting condition so yeah and another thing is today is my first day after 1 year that I haven't eaten Hamburger heheh. Each of us took quite a lot of photos, I won't post all the photos in this post but here are 3 from me ;)

Preparing For The Fall

Today is a beautiful day, isn't it?
The sky is blue
The sun is shinning
But who knows what tomorrow will be like?
To be optimistic, the sun will shine again
To be pessimistic, it will be raining tomorrow
Or to be somewhere in between, you would say it will be cloudy tomorrow
It might be a bit cumbersome but it is worth preparing yourself with a raincoat or umbrella so you won't get wet if it rains.

Would you prepare to fall when it comes to relationship?
You never know how it goes in the future
We all know this saying "Time can change everything"
Eventhough it's not always true, it is most of the time true.
When you prepare yourself for the fall, it doesn't mean you don't trust your partner
You can trust the present self but you cannot trust the future self.
Prepare to fall so you won't get hurt badly.

Cambodian In Wellington Museum

I found this Cambodian women's profile in a Museum in Wellington, New Zealand. Here it says:

Necklace and bracelet
about 1970

When Niborom left Cambodia, her mother gave her these as a parting gift. The two never saw each other again. Niborom's mother was murdered by the Khmer Rouge.

Morning Light

One of my friend, Ith, and I didn't sleep for the whole night while other friends were sleeping in the cars. We had driven to many different places in Wellington to find a place to stay but all places were not available. We also went up to mount Victoria and then come back down to Oriential bay in the morning like 7am for the refreshment. We had to wait until 11am to get in a hotel which was booked by another friend of mine's fiancée. The funny thing was she booked the hotel from Oz instead. The morning light at Oriental bay revitalised and kept us going for another 5 more hours.

Electricity Pole

This photo was taken on the way to Wellington on 18/apr/06. At that time, the road was jammed by a long queue of cars heading to Wellington, some for the winter uni games and some for the Rollingstone concert. I escaped from the busyness on road by just turning to the side and looked through the car window and enjoyed the calmness of the nature surroudning. And there was eletricity pole was outlined by the late evening sky filled with sky-blue and dark-orange colors. Maybe it was a good time to take a silhoutte photo and here's the photo.
