TOMIX Train set...

was busy over the weekend surfing TOMIX decide which Starter set to go for....damm..saw that a fellow member at Hobbyhype bought the Yamanote Line Starter Set first...he also bought the overhead station...very nice set!!!

seeing what he posted made me click on one of my bookmarks...a Shinkansen announcement..
東海道新幹線「こだま」 途中駅

i am thinking of getting this set TOMIX 90149 ベーシックセットSD500系のぞみ ... looks like its a re-released set scheduled for release in Oct 2006...yeah.....
Pic of the set

i remember the time when i was kid ... and if i am not wrong the only big shopping center that was selling these mnature train set was at Robinson's Store in Orchard...i would be the trains in the showcase .. amazed at the details and craftsmanship of those setup...but at that the time trainsets were very ex..something in the $600 mark and the price it was way out of my reach and of course begging my parents to get it would be near impossible.....

now 15 yrs later...i can get my own.... :) .. thats what makes being a adult too .. hahah being able to afford things i would have been dreaming off since i was a kid....

Check out some of the hobbyhype's member pics of his train set...

Marcus is much better

he has recovered...Rachel is ok also..just that it seems she does not quite like her milk..

Mrs has been pestering me to bring Rachel to Padetrician for checkup...i told her for what...she is fine .. no fever..nothing wrong with her...i dun see the point in bringing her there...then end of the day.. if we go there..the padetrician might also just suggest..change milk...i not doctor i also can recommend that.... :)
My bro-in-law who just had his first kid...was also "con" by the padetrician ...he suggested some test which cost $250....i was like pianz....WTF....especially that famous Padetrician at Thomson Medical...never touch the baby and can diagnose the problem of baby....same case as Rachel..we brought her there..the padetrician did not even lay one finger on her...5 mins with him..and he say..change milk...fiak!!!...thats thats....

thats why this round when Marcus was we brought him to the local neighbourhood GP......

Marcus and Rachel......

Daiso Trainset...

haha...i find the train set sold at Daiso worth the $$ spent..cheaper than the Tomy Train set...Imagine the whole set in grey tracks ..trees .. buildings...cost total $28..thats the amt spent so far..compared to the TOMY set we got for Marcus which cost nerly $90...

and the track support ( boxed in red) was also made by material bought from Daiso...bought a 30mm Diameter Balsa wood rod ($2)..and made about 6 supports, each 65mm in height to support the overhead track...hehehe..cheaper alternative of getting the original support which cost $2 for 2 ( even thought its by Daiso..its still ex..2 for $2 )

Broken down amt spent on the train set:
1) Train Carriages - $6
2) 3 sets of Trees - $6
3) Train Station - $2
4) Store - $2
5) 2 x straight Track Pack - $4
6) Elevated Track Set - $2
7) Track Diversion - $2
8) 2 x Curved Track - $4

Dammm...reciting PI to the 100,000 decimal places..

thats insane...but apparently a Japanese man did it....

see news here
TOKYO (AP) - A Japanese mental health counsellor recited pi to 100,000 decimal places from memory Wednesday, setting what he claims is a world record.

Akira Haraguchi, 60, needed more than 16 hours to recite the number to 100,000 decimal places, breaking his personal best of 83,431 digits set in 1995, his office said Wednesday. He made the attempt at a public hall in Kisarazu, just east of Tokyo.

Pi is a physical constant defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

It is usually written out to a maximum of three decimal places, as 3.141, in math textbooks. But the number, which has fascinated scientists for centuries, has no theoretical limit to the number of decimal places it can be written to. It is a constant that appears in the proofs of many equations defining the universe.

"What I am aiming at is not just memorizing figures, I am thrilled by seeking a story in pi," Haraguchi said....
