You know, this is one of those essential items when I need to do some soldering. This is a hard sponge which allows you to wipe off excess solder from the soldering iron tip. Of course, you need to give it a few drops of water so that the iron does not burnt it. There is a proper amount of water you can put because if you put too much, you soldering iron would lose a lot of heat. And because its on a tray, I always lose them when I travel around seeing customers.
But now, all that has changed.
This is a new RM2.00 sponge which took me three years to get as I always forget about it when I was at Pasar Road.
You put two drops of water
Then another. See how it greedily eats up the water and expands
And more after
Until it is fully expanded. But when it is dry, it will not shrink back to its original size. This is its final shape.
And so, I do not have to use wads of damp tissue paper which always get dry too fast. And when you knock it, bits of solder inside would drop about everywhere.
Kristine, why did you take so little noodles? So, I can finish it (as in, not leave any leftovers)
One bad thing about Nokia 5800's camera is that it takes long time to focus compared to my Nikon D50. And so, this is what happens when Kristine cooperates by freezing her for me and Kaelynn took the opportunity to pinch her cheeks. Yes, there was a slight fight after I took the photo.
You all know that the Malay Mail, the afternoon paper is now free, right? You don't? Well, it does not matter anyway. The paper it was today is a former shadow if itself decades ago. Finding bits and pieces on the Internet showed that it suffered losses of about RM11 Million and despite changing owners, its readership declined.
When I was a young teenager, it was my preferred newspaper compared to The News Straits Times (that is, until I discovered The Star). And the Page 3 girls were........ nice. I am not sure what its trying to gain by this but this puts them in a straight competition with The Sun (So now, you get The Sun in the morning and The Mail in the afternoon). The Sun has Citizen Nades, not that I always read it but there is nothing to 'read' in the Mail.
And so, one day, I happened to come across the paper and began to browse through........
This is the date of the copy I had
Woo.....An article about the Perodua Alza Manual! The write up is quite good from the start but when it came to the ending..........
WTF! What has a drier got to do with car transmission? And there verdict is, the manual consumes more petrol?
Wow. This is so confusing. I don't think I am going to touch this paper again.
Maybe you know about it already but this is new to me. Maybe its because I do not travel anymore with the new job as I seldom use GPS. But this is something which I noticed one day when I got bored........
OVI Maps displays the distance left to your destination.
And at 3D option, the closer I zoom in, I discovered KLCC. Oh, don't try the Penang Bridge either.
Not all buildings are displayed. For example, you have the Berjaya Times Square, and the Pavillion. But there is no Sungei Wang, Imbi Plaza nor Low Yatt or Lot10. Hmm...
