Iron Man Action Figure

I could not resist it and on Saturday, CaptKirk has SMSed to me that the toys were out. Unfortunately, I was working the whole day, only able to go back in the late afternoon. And on Sunday, I was working again until late afternoon. But by the time I wanted to go out, I was too tired and since it was raining, my Wife decided against going to any shopping centres. The air-cons would be colder than usual and with Kaelynn still being sick, it might make it worse.

My only chance was on Tuesday, but by the time I go there, Outpost was closed in conjunction with Earth day and would reopen at 1330. So, I waited. And waited. And waited. Damn. Only when I called at 1350, everyone in there were having a meeting. Not wanting to interrupt everyone, I left and went to my next customer, who happened to be in Amcorp Mall (yippee!) And so, I bought the toy there. Because I was days late, other Iron Man action figures were gone. And I so wanted the first Iron man and Obadiah Stane's huge but bulky Iron Monger. Oh well.

I got this version with the pop out armour
chest and separate helmet. I can't believe
I shelled out RM45 for this when I balked
at RM39 at Star Wars 3.5" figures!

Instead of using wires to tie the figure to the blister
pack, they're now using transparent rubber bands.
Reminds me of some kind of dental braces

Quality control

For the past few days, we have been working like crazy for a cabling job. Because each table requires a network point, a telephone point and also some power points, there are at least four parties involved. And it was a rush to see who can get the space first. the problem lies in the cabling for each table. The first party to start work in this section were the electrical guys and they used square pvc casing. We were the next, beating the network guys. And so, we get to claim our "space" and we used pvc pipes instead. When the network guys came in, there were not enough space for them and so, they had to drill holes on the floor. Ha ha ha ha.

But in other parts, they were first and we we in deep doo-doo. However, as luck would have it, the electrical guys and the network guys ran into some problem. Apparently, someone forgot to read the floorplan carefully and ended up laying their points at the wrong distance. And the next part followed blindly. For us, we did not lay the cables but left them hanging on the ceiling, hoping to *ahem* use the Network guys's trunking system by hiding our cables in there. Although it meant that we will save a lot on raw materials, but this is no the point. With so many pvc pipes in that section, it was starting to look like a submarine. We did ask the customer for their permission to do so and they gave us the green light. Which means, the eight-man Network team cannot argue with our two-man team. Ha ha ha ha ha!

Our's is on the right while the electrical is on
the left. The customer suggested that we put
our pipes as close to the electrical as possible
I was not happy with that idea as this type of
arrangement can lead to a lot of problems if
there are power surges.

Still, the customer is always right and we moved them.
But this would mean more wastage. For example, the
wall plug inside the cavity on the left cannot be used
anymore. And they costs a lot. Haiya

The same goes for here at the partition board.
The wall plug for this type of board costs 60sen
I can pull this one out and "recycle" it but there
would be a big hole on the board instead. Haiya

Sometimes, when you're at a different place there are a lot of new things. And sometimes I amazes you that how the things we take for granted are not easy to get from. And sometimes, I get bored and do not know what I am posting about.

Although it is not easy to take dark photos
and hide at the same time, I should have
used a smaller aperture to get a more
brighter spark shower

is still wet with the water/cement
