"Aku Terima Nikahnya" – a hacker’s version

Few days ago I wrote a comment on the synopsis of the saifulislam’s book “Aku Terima Nikahnya”. Today, I came across the hacker’s version of wedding proposal. It seems that sometimes a person worked hard, through his own way, to tie the knots. Kudos, anyway.

From matching gems to the perfect match
Hacker proposes to girlfriend
via casual puzzle game Bejeweled.

A hacker’s
romantic gesture
You’re probably accustomed to seeing big-screen proposals at
ball games, in crowded restaurants, and scrawled across the sky by aircraft. But
popping the question by hiding a message in your intended’s favorite computer game is rather more unusual.

However, for computer programmer Bernie Peng, it obviously seemed like
the perfect idea. He spent a month reprogramming his girlfriend Tammy Liu’s
favorite video game, gem-matching hit Bejeweled, so that it would display the
all-important message when she reached a certain score. As Peng told Newark’s
Star-Ledger: “I thought it was pretty cool, in a nerdy way.”
