Little Trip to Bali

Little Trip to Bali

I had a two days Workshop in Bali last week on Thursday to Friday. Thought to extend it until Sunday to explore Bali with my friend. We were going to Ubud, Tanah Lot, having sunset at Jimbaran, having pizza there (yea right.. pizza) and at Legian too. Before going back to Jakarta, I was having a great expensive spa dan bought some balinese shirts for my family and of course for my childhood bestfriends.. hihi.. That’s all 😛

I should go to Bali again next time to shop at Ubud, there’s a lot of cute store there *but I had to save my money so I didn’t shop* hehe.. Should be with my girls Nena and Carrie (we should plan our next trip there girls, I save dreamland and nammos beach for you :lol:), and with my family later on 😛

I should write my trip to Melbourne last month, but I still want to keep it in my head. It’s like if I wrote it, then I’ll forget it 😆

Hashed your files name

Hashed your files name

I used to forget things lately. I forgot my application algorithm when I tried to customize the app last time. Then I have to break down the app again into pieces (_ _!). And it is my bad too that I don’t have the documentation, well I just don’t have the time.. *ngeles*

I chatted with my coding partner and talked about how people could get your files on your website’s folders by just typing that file’s name correctly on their browser. We know that code igniter have some protection like when we type the folder’s name, if we include some empty “index.php” file, then the browser will just shown us nothing. But I still couldn’t find the way to do so to the files inside the folders.

Then I just thought maybe I should hash the filenames. Like when I uploaded a photo to some folder, I hash the filename before I insert it to the database. So people who get naughty won’t be able to get the filename. Well, maybe just a filename that shown on the browser when they try “view source”. But at least they’ll get some difficulty to guess the other filenames 👿

My trick is, for example, I uploaded a photo with a filename base on the code (or ID) registered on the database of the application. People will guess easily if you just hash the Code or ID. But try to combine the ID with names or any code you can think of (of course related to your application), then hash it. For example: hash(dateCreated_ID). At least people will get difficulty to break your filename format if it has been hashed. I believe facebook  (and others) doing the same thing 😀

But again, don’t forget to get it documented or you too could get lost when you forgot your coding style (like me) 😆

Me and the Olympiad (part 1)

Me and the Olympiad (part 1)


I just got back from Jogjakarta yesterday! It was unplanned, but suddenly the management told me and my two friends, that we were the participants of the English Olympiad. Okay, I wasn’t excited to participate but I was excited coz I’d go to Jogja free of charges on transportation and accommodation 😆


We haven’t prepared ourselves to compete though (-.-“). It was the day before the competition when we finalized our presentation. And our turn to present was on the 2nd day of the competition (oct 7). Owh, fyi, the competition held on 5-7 Oct. At the first day, we were given a lectures on Improving English Presentation Skill, Negotiation Skill, Knowledge Sharing and Malcolm Baldrige. The 2nd day is the first day of the competition, when 15 teams presented their papers. The 3rd day, the 5 teams left, finally got a chance to deliver the presetations too 😆 and then there’s a chance for individuals to compete against each other.


It was a suprise when one of the Judges called my name, at the last row, of the 10 Best Performance. Fyi, we were targeted to win by the management, but target from ourselves? well, i tell you again, we were unprepared, so we didn’t put our hopes too much 😛 to reduce the disappointment, of course 😆


There’s this man, based on his team presentation, he was good. He also compete against me in the individual categories, and he got the chance before me, and he was good too. and it was his question that appeared for me to be answered (-.-“). I wasn’t sure if my answer is good, i was, at least, expected to be the 2nd runner, but the Judges put me as the Champion.. Ta-Daaaaa… Quite a surprise for us 😆 Our Team, didn’t get a number though (-.-“), but again we were unprepared, so this is not a disappointment for us 🙂


Well, I still have to prepare myself to compete again on the Final next week. I still won’t put my hopes too high 😛 being one of the participants, is a big chance for me to have more knowledge and experience. Being one of the Champions, is a gift from God 😆 But everyone says, the price is having a vacation abroad.. Naaaa, this kind of thing that’s making me more excited 😆 Well, wish me good luck yaaaa 🙂
