Busy Saturday 16042011

I know that today is going to be a very busy day since it involves SFTPMS members. But I never realised how busy it was going to be. First of all, it rained the whole morning. OK, so, this is going to put a damper to some of the member's plans and also, my schedule. But first thing first. Wife is sick and still, she wanted to do some errands. Being a very loyal and dutiful husband *ahem*, I drove her around. But I still cannot get her to go see the Doctor. And if I am going to be late, then late it is. Sorry, guys.

First entertainment of the day, watching the Scouts
performed their parade routine in the
drizzling rain. I
was secretly hoping there
would be some cheerleaders
and fireworks
but well, this, after all, is Saturday
in a public School.

Then the rain got heavier and everyone went into the
shade. By this time, it was past 1030....

By 1100, my Wife was ready to leave and I was
ready to go... to the Library. Yes, Library.
Never ever make a Librarian go after you for
your overdue books.

Once that is done, I rushed over to Pasar Road as fast as I legally could and well, Viper was already there, with his son. Originally, there was supposed to be only one session but because I was too excited since the PCB boards were ready, I suggested the 10Am instead. Unfortunately, the response from the Forum was not fast enough and so, because of that, I had to conduct two sessions. One is the 10AM and the second one is the 2PM. After showing Viper around the place and helped him get his tools. It was already 1230PM. And so, we bade farewell and after some very deep thinking, I realised that there was something missing....

Yep. Lunch

And it is still raining. I has been raining since 10 in the
morning. And carrying an umbrella all over
the place
is not fun for me since I could forget and
left it on
some place which I will never find it. And
its raining, its a very precious commodity.

Ah, lunch. Something simple since I do not want
to eat anything heavy and fall asleep halfway...

And its still only 1315. Boring

The second session had a much better turnout since
the rain has stopped and also, most of the people
would have finished working. And so, on the
group purchase, we saved a lot of cash.

Unfortunately, I was 10 minutes too late and the shop was closed which means I could not collect the PCBs and have a go at it myself. And now, after speaking with one of the members, I have to go to Hobby HQ to collect the projector. Mr. Loo was kind enough to loan the projector to the club for its functions and so, I need to collect it since I want to test its composite video input.
