Section 14's IT Mall & Miniature Hobby

I am on leave today, until next year (Ha ha ha ha) but because of customer commitments, I had to be present. So, after going there to help locate a cabling problem and also the ISDN's installation schedule, I was free to go home. But not until I dropped by Section 14, PJ.

Section 14 was a very nice place and easy to go to. My old company was located in Section 13, where both sections were separated by the main road. Anyway, the reason why I wanted to drop by there was not only because there was an IT Mall but because of Miniature Hobby. A place for plastic models which I used to frequent since the mid-90's.

So, this is one of the contributing factors to the cabling problem
We will have to make sure (and pray) the cable is still alright
before commencing a new conduit

Remember this car? It was on this year's Auto show
which I did not attend. It was one of the dream designs
I so wanted to get. But now, it sits there in the corner
because some idiot wrecked it.

This is the view of the parking lot next to the IT Mall

And after so many years, the metal grates are still missing
But things did change. You now pay MR1.50 per hour for
parking there instead of the usual RM1.05 per hour.

Currently, Miniature Hobby is located above Sushi King,
on the First floor. Just like it did in the mid-90's at
Jln Bukit Bintang above 7-11 before shifting
to 1-Utama and then on to Mid-Valley.

And its having a X'Mas sale

So, you have a few days left for those great

I wanted to take a nice shot of the shop but this guy just
came running around the corner to getmore of the
China-made Evangelion kits. The China-made kits
and toys can be seen in the background

I have absolutely no idea how they got this giant Gundam
model in. But if it was one of my favourite designs, I would
have no hesitation in coming back here at night to *ahem*
obtain it.

This is another view of the shop. And its quite well
stocked unless you're looking for something that is
available there.

This is the IT place. I forgot what its called but lets
just call it IT Mall for the moment. This is PJ's
answer to Low Yatt plaza and Mid-Valley's IT Floor
Metrojaya used to occupy the lot for years.
Good Riddance

There are a lot of things to see there and All IT is located
at the top floor of the building.

On the way back, I noticed a new place

My treasure for the day's outing?
A USB Cable for my card reader (which does not
work and now I have to buy a new one), a DVD on
an anime called "Robot Carnival" and the copycat
vinyl 3-inch Evangelion toys.

I wanted this for years since I could never buy them
in time, off from any shops. But thanks to copycats,
I am glad to pay Rm29.90 (with 30% off) for a set
of four (The other half are in the wrong colours)

Dumping, dumping, 1, 2, 3........

The termites have struck us quite hard this time. For the whole week, the guys had to come again and this time, they have spread to the cupboards. And in the storage room, we have traced a new termite trail but they have seemed to stopped halfway which meant the earlier dosage of the termite spray was effective. Our plan was to use the kind of chemicals which infects the termite back to the nest. If we were to kill them there and then, the whole colony would have moved to another spot and start again.

But still, a lof of stuff were affected. So, we're going to throw a lot of things away. Not only that we're taking the opportunity to "lighten" our belongings too. Brings back a lot of memories too. things that I have played since my childhood were either eaten by the termites or became unuseable after the rain last night (as we were clearing the stuff late into the night when it rained)

There were a lot of Playstation games in there that's going
to the junkpile. Shows how lonely I was before I got married
Ha ha ha ha ha

Oooh. Ye olde '286 PC. When I have the time, I am going
to desolder all the components, and then use the circuit
board as some kind of lamp

Since we're all so busy with the clearing, dinner is the
usual, pick and eat KFC. But no cats or dogs or squirrels
are going to get them tonight.
