We are about to go!!!! soon we are going to launch our software, it was a bit more challenging that I have thought 🙂 it is not all about the software but also the marketing, choosing the customer or convincing them. Not there yet we have to work more and more. I wanted to blog this feeling of mine in this time of the day. When I look back hope to remember these feelings…

Swimming to get shape Sony waterproof MP3

When I was in Taiwan staying in Ambassador Hotel  I had the need to do some sport in order to evacuate my energy or  somehow adjust my body to the jet lag…

There was a big shopping mall called also Big City, you can find anything else but not the shoes can fit the European feet 🙂

Anyway I was looking for mp3 player that I could listen during my swimming training and also something fancy.

I step into the SONY shop and I see this awesome neon green mp3 player. Because I bought it from Taiwan I can not bring it any of the shops in the NL but if I go there again I could bring it with me.

If you wanna see the detailed features click to the link below 😉$_57
sony waterproff mp3 player

Let me share my opinion about the headphone. It has smart design for charging the gadget, ears very well plugged and color is stunning. I have been using this player almost for 4 months now and almost 2 times a week and no complain YET 🙂

If you are heading for long swimming sessions but get bored under the water, if you are really motivated by the music and if you wanna get some eyes on you I highly recommend this stunning mp3 WATERPROOF player for you.

It has been a while I have been struggling with a lot of things weight loss included. I tried everything by myself but eventually I have realised that while I am busy with other things it is not easy to concentrate on myself.

I decided to start CROSSFIT in Jan-Hein is the owner, he has some age for sure but he is an athletic man you can immediately see his strength.I will come back to details later on about cross fit and my program.

I met with Marly Nooijen via YouAct cross fit gym owner. I told her what I have been gone through, my fed up with sport, fracture I have for my wrist and devastation from the life ( sort of)

She just listened to me and we just get started. She just told me to start right away, no day off no break no lets start Monday etc. It was 26th of July 2016 Tuesday. 27th I got the list and evening I went for shopping. The program is for 3 months. At the end of the month she will give new program for nutrition and also for exercises.

I have started to this blog a bit late because now I have very structured life that I can find time for anything I want.

In different days different topics I will discuss in my blog, I will share my experiences with the people out there. Bare with me, the life easy if you share the experiences with the others and get learn from their experiences too.

Lets get started with the plan: I have 2 different plans 1 is as I said nutrition and 2nd one is exercises.

Nutrition: Basically almost everything from AH ( Albert Heijn, very famous supermarket in the Netherlands)

I eat almost everything, basically I have 5 meals everyday. Based on the day (active or inactive) my daily intake also changes. I will add what I eat everyday later on this blog.

Monday-Tuesday CROSS FIT

Wednesday REST day

Thursday – Friday CROSS FIT

Saturday REST day

Sunday CARDIO ( cycling)

I also aimed to have above 8000 steps everyday I got a gadget from fitbit and also upload the app on my phone to track my daily progress.

Exercises: Currently there are two clubs I am going: Powerhouse040 and SportVision. Based on the plan made by Marly I go 2 times to Powerhouse040 and 2 times to SportVision.

In PowerHouse I do WODs and in SportVision I trinaed with Marly, she is my personal trainer.

After 3 months I will start again to row with the crew in Theta.

you are not you

downloadYesterday me and my friend went to Pathe to watch “you are not you”… The topic was ALS…The illness which announce its name the world by “ice bucket challenge”

There is a happy beautiful couple, 35 years old woman shows the symptoms from ALS… basically loosing the control of the muscles… It was terrible feeling even when I was watching I had difficulties to handle to understand the situation.

There is another girl who was helping her to do her daily duties… like eating, taking shower, going to toilet and cleaning herself, changing clothes and so and so … It is extremely difficult to depend on someone, maybe that part was the most critical part for me to accept.

Lately kind a I kicked out a lot of people from my life. Maybe related to age, maybe keeping or raising the expectations from the people are so high I could not find the reason yet and still trying to find.

I love people and I hate to argue about anything. I really enjoy to discuss even the ideas are not compromising AND I hate to argue-fight-having bad relation….

Whenever I recognize people do not afraid to break my heart I just cut all the relation to protect myself from the world merciless face…

Being alone is suck, depend on someone is also suck… I will keep my spirit alive, life is beautiful, people are also…

If they do not make me happy I will look myself… maybe I am wrong ( still have difficulties to accept this part because I think I am ok 😉 )

Driving License in Netherland

If you came to Holland as an abroad, and if you do not have European Union Nationality, and if you are not eligible for the 30% tax rule, and if you do not have any driving license from any of the European country you are in the right page to have knowledge about how to get driving license in here.

1st 6 months you are allowed to use your driving license ( if you have before from non-european country means you can drive 🙂

but afterward you have to have in order to drive on the trafic.

1st you have to pass the Theory exam. It is around 50 euros, when I had that there was 40 + 30 =70 questions. 35/40 + 25/30 correct answers are enough to pass the exam. after passing the exam you have to get your practice exam in 1.5 years.

I had the driving lectures from one Turkish guy. He was chargin me 35 euros per hour. Non dutch instructors generally speaks their mother toung and dutch, but dutch instructors knows english as well. So it is not problem to find instructor.

There are two types of driving license. 1st is for manual gear and the other one is automatic. If you have driving license (DL) for manual driving you are allowed to use the automatic one, but not the otherway around 🙂

The practise exam is around 220 euroos. Regarding to your learning curve and having experience about driving before the number fo lectures can be fluctuate between 10 to 120. It is quite lots ha!! so it is better to be fully concantrate when you are taking the courses and be aware of the theory-rules.

there are different kind of exams. Normal exam and  Stress exam. Normal exam is 30-45 min and you nee to finish it in this time period. Stress exam, you can stop and smoke and continue, they think that you know but you are not the person who can calm during exam , for ths reason they gave opprtunity to you to calm you down.

Before the real exam you can also take provision exam. its price is around 180 euros. Its purpose is to knwo the real exam style and get advices from the examinator, who will tell you where you have to improve and what you are god in . Lets say in real exam you are examined from 10 topic ( parking, stop, left-right turning, and controll of the steering…), but if the examinator is satisfied from ur performance in the provision exam from 4 over 10 then you will be examined in the real exam from rest of the topics, in this case 6 topics because 4 you already showed that you are good on it.

For today, this is what i wanted to share…


Last 3 weeks I have been busy with Tkinter. It is a python library for the graphical interfaces. I used lots of widgets in order to create nicely viewed pages.

separate pages, tabbed ( it is also called notebook) pages and etc.

In order to create such a page and propose to the end user with the lots of functionality I choose Model View Controller architecture. And for myself ro easily dominate my code

I will give a brief explanation about MVC ( how it works) and tips about tkinter that you have to remember when you create pages.

1. model () : this class only contains the DATA, what you wanna show on the view or the input data for the computations and so. it is passive

2. controller( model) : this class is able to communicate with model ( lets say it can see the model class) and it controlls which data will be used for which purpose. it is active

3.view ( controller, model): it is as it is understood from the name of it is the view, visual appearance. It communicates with model and controller. when user press something controller takes the role and do whatever it hs to do . Lets say user fill some inputs and press compute then, view send the data to the model and call the controller. then the controller gets the data from the model and does the necessary computations. and let the view knows from the result ( if it is required)

Tip about Tkinter….

For the structured places of the widgets two methods are used. GRID and PACK….

for the same frame never ever use pack an grid together. your source code can be compiled but it will never work 🙂 dont try to find the error bcause it is not syntax error it is logical error for the tinter :d

so far i can give that much info. I wish I had lots of time to write everything what I know.

I am so thankful to the people who publish USEFUL bolgs for us, and give chance to improve ourselves withut spending plenty of time to figure out the problem by ownselves…
