Much better

no more fever...but now he has very bad runny nose....hiaz....now we have to get him back on track on his meal patterns.....

after this round of falling sick, his appetite for food has decrease...hiaz...





Back to the TOMYTEC collection...ok..now i understand what it means by N gauge.

Its a sizing convention used in Railroad models and those TOMYTEC trucks and buses collection are used for the N size Rail model as add on models to the towns and citys of rail set up...waa...a KATO shinkasen Bullet Basic set with tracks , 6 car passenger compartment and ESC cost nearly $300 USD...not for me...but its a dream....hiaz....

Why i was looking up this is because i wanted to setup a model town of 4 blocks on the KATO Dio Town system..but looking at it being a N Size model...meaning all in 1/150 scale , my Tomica / Matchboxes will look like giant vehicles in the town...lol...maybe the Tomica Buses will look scale cause they are about 1/140 scale ...see how first....

Sizing Guide for rail model

  • G Scale - This is the BIG train. Great for around the tree and for smaller children, this size is one of the most popular for around the tree. Scale 1/24th.
  • On30 - This size is perfect for those Dept. 56 villages. The trains are O Scale but run on HO Scale track. If you have a Dept. 56 Village, this set is for you.
  • Lionel\O-Scale - The tradition continues this year with the Lionel Christmas set. Most of us are familiar with the popular three rail Lionel trains, which are O Scale, but there are still a handful of modelers that prefer the larger size of O two rail scale trains. Scale 1/48th.
  • S Scale - Some of us may remember the American Flyer trains of the 40's, 50's and 60's. These were S Scale trains. Now, not the most common of scales, but provides a nice balance of detail with size. Scale 1/64th.
  • HO Scale - The old stand by, this is the most popular size of trains available. Great for table tops or that dream layout, or maybe you just want a small set to go under the tree. What ever you prefer, HO Scale is the most readily available. Scale 1/87th.
  • N Scale - The second most popular scale in model railroading. It's small size is perfect for those tight on space or looking to build that giant dream layout. Don't let the small size fool you, these are highly detailed trains. Scale 1/160th.
  • Z Scale - The smallest of electric trains. Not very popular amongst modelers and operators due to its size, expense and availability of accessories. Great conversation items! Scale 1/220th.

TOMYTEC collection..

was at SUNTEC today..and was at one shop called Toy Room...they were selling the TOMYTEC TRUCK COLLECTION VOL 2 ...but cost about 9.90 for one..too ex...with online order and shipment...its less than $80 for 12 pcs of the truck...

These babies are the 1/150 scale type of truck or called N gauge size for Train/Rail modellers...

so off i went surfing to TOMYTEC webby when i got home and i fell in luv with the Trailer Series which was released in Feb this yr!!....but apparently on searching most of the online stores...seem its out of stock!!..

Would you luv it if you see this??



Also they have a cutout for you to display in a case of stand...cool!!!Download as a PDF file and print and cut to size...


Also the scale building looks cool....hehehe...tempted wor...but this is Vol 5 liao...waaa...releasing in March 06!!

Mail reply from Company

well...service industry ppl in singapore have no standards...see the 2 mails i sent out to 2 different company enquiring on their products...no reply at all...
* Irobot Roomba
* GP Batteries Singapore

they dun give a dick to lone customers enquiring about their products....and GP batteries call me after i replied to them another mail about any updates......

If you want your product to sell..reply mail to potential customers....



sad..wanted to buy the AI robot to help me do vacuuming in my home...

Woo..my Choro Police set..

complete...bought the Fire Engine and Ambulance recently to complete the set...

actually Ambulance was bought last week...heee

i would be tooo....

put yourself in my shoes...and if someone accuse you of something ..

story goes like this.....

"Someone's Mother called his son's home..and found difficulty getting thru the line.. little did she know that the home's phoneline has been diverted to a answwering service ( a playback of a recorded message )..

Called son and told son "Call your home and someone pick up phone and hang back again!!" Son was like WTF... ( son was in the midst of preparing a presentation at 2pm to management and something like this had to add on more stress )

Son was angry , cause if it really did happen like what the mother claim ...its rude..and the only person at home was the son's wife.

Son called wife and asked wife at 4pm which her mobile phone was on...and question wife.. wife not happy cause she said she activated the answering service in the morning 9 am... Quarrel started between son and wife..... Son kept quiet..and hung back phone...cause son had a lot of work in office.. son have been returning home late at about 8 pm since Wed...

That night son got home...checked all Caller ID in home's phone ( Son has total 5 sets of phone with caller ID ) and none of the phone registered any call except son's phone call at 8 pm that night.... So do you think SOn should be piss with Mother?? "

I would if I am son....damm.....anyway none of the story above is true...any similarity is just pure coincidence..
