And so, with a sweeping statement, we were told its going to be Hot until September. However, this is not something I am looking forward to. When its hot, you sweat and when you sweat, you're a sitting duck for any wind blowing at you. And when it happens, you are going to fall sick. And it has happened to me twice last year. But this is not relevant here and now.

I have cut my hair. Its becoming too sticky and hot, making me lose my temper and cranky. Anyway, its very close to the third month and so, after running Wifey's errant, I decided to have my usual RM15 hair cut (works out to be RM5 per month, la)

There! After 25 minutes, I save a lot on
shampoo, hair gel and also my sanity.

Unfortunatel, I also
look like Bert.

Funny things in the night

This was a new one for me. 0139 and the cat's
hiding here instead of the usual bag (mine),
the landing, stairs, floors, etc.

Modifying a switch

As one of my own project is about to start, I was beset with problems of the noisy kind. Its not easy to concentrate when the girls are around. And so, trying to take my mind off things, I decided to play with some components. And so, I came across this switch which I have bought months ago. At that time, I was looking for a non-latching push-button switch and this was the ideal model. Unfortunately, I forgot to ask about the illumination part. Yes, this switch does light up. But I am not sure if its a 12 volt bulb inside there or just a normal LED.

And so, after a few naughty pulls, I got the cover off. So, its just a normal WHITE LED in there. And its soldered to a plastic holder which, I think, could be unsoldered. So, now, I can happily go to Pasar Road and look for a nice bright 3mm Red/Green LED to replace the white LED. I wanted this LED so that I can tell, at a glance, the polarity of the voltage that I need to use.......

This switch costs me about RM9.50 but the feeling you
get when pressing it, is bliss. Makes you think its really
a very robust and reliable switch. Only time will tell.

As I was driving in Kajang.......

What do YOU think?
