Stop smocking


After one week delay, finally I arrived in Wageningen in 8 June. The flight is good because not many people, so I occupied five seats in middle rows of the Boing 777-200 as a bed for 12 hours. This time I stay in Bornsesteeg, at 19th floor, good view to spot center and Hovenstein.

Working corner

First day start with a lecture of Dr. Daniel Pauly from University of British Columbia, Canada. He said that we should not believe in FAO fisheries data, and I thought that we should not believe his presented data also :)

Second day continued with a meeting with Paul, Arnol Bregt, and their Msc student, Ms. Phuong from CTU. Her thesis is about to develop a model to evaluate the assessibility of fish and shrimp in to mangrove. That was very interesting but let's wait to see how she continues.

In the afternoon, I was going to center to buy a new sim card, this time, again T-mobile is my choice. The guy who sell the card told me that after register on line at T-mobile website, there are 10…

Ca Mau rainy season

It is good to have new flow-meter before going to Ca Mau. The flow-meter looks like a rocket with 6 digits counter inside

The follows are several steps of using it that I tried to find by myself (they provided a not very good manual in deed):
1. Open the screw at back side, inject tap water in to the flow meter, and tighten the screw again.
2. Use a long string to tie one side to the flow-meter, and the other side to a tree or somewhere firmly if you don’t want it swims away.
3. Read the current number on counter, write down the number or just remember if you can.
4. When everything ready, looking your watch and start putting the flow-meter in to water.
5. Make sure the head of flow-meter facing to current direction.
6. After a time, 10 minutes for example, pull up the flow-meter out of water.
7. Read the new number in the counter.
8. Take the difference between new and the last number of the counter.
9. Calculation: The SPEED in cm/sec = Distance in meters multiple (X) 100 and divide (/) Time…

Stakeholder meeting and days after

The second stakeholder meeting was held at Best hotel, Ca Mau city on 1 April 2009. The meeting was successful in term of organizing and quality of discussion. I wished if we have more time, more valuable discussion and ideas would come.

After the meeting everyone went to Can Tho except me. I had to be back the sites to check the sampling.

Friends of mine: fishermen and border guard as usual welcomed my face with local "whisky". We also tried to make a "barbecue" with snake, fish, shrimp, cuttle fish.

"This snake is not too big, how we can share" the guard thought

"But this culltle fish may be OK"

Do you think we have enough "bait" for the "whisky" in red cup, and also in plastic bag??

You also may have a question where those "baits" came from for the barbecue? Yes it came from my sampling traps in deep mangrove forest....after carefull records

How to open .tab file of MapInfo on Google Earth

You may have a lot of MapInfo .tab files, which contain a lot of usefull information. One day you found that Google Earth is also a fancy tool to play arround with satellite images and maps, and you want to display you MapInfo data on that. Here is the steps of how to do (I assume that your PC is already installed with MapInfo and Google Earth, internet connection is required)

1. Download the Google Earth Link Utility here:
2. Extract the compressed file and run GELink.mbx found in GoogleConnect directory.
3. Open a MapInfo file or a workspace. On the tools tool-bar you should see a green globe icon. When in the map window click on the globe icon to export the map window.
4. Alternatively, to export MapInfo TAB files to Goolge vector format (KML) make a map selection first and then click on the Globe icon. This will export the selected objects to Google Earth.
Let's see the result, not too bad :)
