Malaysia was shocked when the video clip of Miri schoolgirls bullying another student so now, here is another video clip of another fight. This time, even an innocent blogger was not spared. What has the World come to, sigh
While we were making some space for the baby cot, I found this item. It was given to me by a friend last year. Its a very nice Heineken radio. I am not sure if it worked or not but as a precaution, I have removed the batteries last year, in case it leaked, like all my other stuff. Its quite easy to just forget about it and then return months later to find the batteries have leaked and corroded all the metal inside. Sometimes, even the circuit boards are gone too and you have either junk it or buy a new one. This is very common for torchlights.
So, here we have it, the Gift
There is a strap, the radio and a set of headphones You can see the battery with the headphones
The design is quite nice and the two bumps are to scan and reset the radio frequency. So, if your favourite frequency is at 108Mhz, and you're now at 95.8Mhz, you need to press RESET and then SCAN for the radio to star from 88MHz until it reaches the frequency you want.
This is the back of the radio where you slot in the battery and there is a clip for you to break when you feel clumsy
The radio is not working. Really. (Ignore all the bent components) even the yellow LED was not soldered properly. The other side of the board is where it housed the two switches and its just a piece of metal taped to the circuit board
Once I got rid of all the unecessary things, I have this cute little gadget with a large magnifying lens in the middle. Maybe I should make a circuit for LEDs and put it inside. One day, that is. Ha ha ha ha ha
