Working at the secret Recipe

After being the nice guy, it was back to normal. Normal as in my 'normal' schedule. After dinner, it was time to visit my Mom to see how she is. She's been moved again.

Now, she is sharing a room with another patient.
In the meantime, I decided to take my chances and park the car. So, the girls can do their homework in a more comfortable manner.

However, come 10PM, the aircon is shut and so is this restaurant. But to us, it does not matter much since as long as there are lights and no one chases us out, its OK. However, after a while, it gets kinda stuffy...

Driving all the Miss Daisy-ses

Maybe I am a good guy at Heart. Or maybe, I'm an idiot. Then again, I am not sure because I felt it was both and then some. What I did today was basically fetch three relatives from Damansara Heights, Ulu Klang and Ampang to visit my Mom and then drove them all back again. If you ask me even now, I could not answer you.

But I am very sure it was not the case of 'Mouth first, think later' but more of ..erm... never mind.

It was so hot today, poor Hydro-woman was gone in minutes

In the end, the three ladies enjoyed their trip and I get free lunch too. Still, two of them were very helpful when I was just a small kid. In fact, they were too helpful but then again, looking back, I am grateful for their assistance.

So, when someone says 'Yes' without thinking or even offer his help which, you think is too good to be true, that's me. Its a sincere gesture with no strings attached. That's me alright.

Sleeping Positions

One of the funny moments in sleeping

Because of  the size of the PCB, right from the start, a normal 18-Pin DIL chip is out of the question. This is because the chip is almost the same size of the PCB. And so, I have two other choices, which is either the SOIC or the SSOP package. I chose the SSOP package and proceeded to order it from Microchip directly since there are no shops in Pasar Road that have them.

In in just three working days, the package was delivered to me (from Thailand)

And so, there it is. With Microchip, there is no minimum order but with the shipping charges, it makes sense to order a lot from them

And so, I ordered 20 of the chips in SSOP packages

And there you go. It fits the mock-up PCB nicely.

I shouyld have taken a 18-pin DIL for size comparison too. But the SOIC (left) is more than half its size. The SSOP (right) is the one I ordered.
