Sat..

Damm HDB contractors...i suspect the screws used are not the approved ones..problem is..... recently this week my main door had difficulty closing...it would be very tight and seems the door is not aligned properly to the frame... Friday night.. i took down the main door and guess what..the screws used were all brass screws!!!... the ones holding the hinge to the door and also the ones holding the door to the frame.....fiak...what the hell is HDB contractors thinking brass screws to hold a 150 kg door...dammm...luckily that night i had already prepared ..i have bought SS screws from my neighbourhood hardware shop and replaced all sixteen screws...guess what..some of the screws on the top hinge had already given way at the head of the screw..thus the reason for the misaligned door...damm..!!!



i worked till 1130 pm replacing all screws....

Saturday was a fine day today ... straight away after office in the morning 10am ( this week my turn to cover weekend ) went down to town to get some replacement screws for my house's main Door.... to change the ones holding the hinge to the metal frame...

look at the condition of the brass screws..some of the screws have been stripped off the threads when the contractor were screwing in...damm...low class workmanship....


After getting the screws from town ( cost me $5 for 20 pcs of stainless steel set screws for the hinges) went home and replaced all the brass ones....now my door is algined properly again..and will last ages... :D

Total Screws replaced
Door Hinge - 16 self tapping screws (SS)
Door Frame - 16 set screws (SS)

A slight note of caution...pls have at least another person to help out...the door is damm heavy...i struggled with it on Friday night..and now my arm muscles are arching...machiam i did 100 bench presses...

Marcus was asking me wife to open open open the box the whole afternoon...lol.. he was buzzing round the box the whole afternoon like a bee around a pot of honey...Well he was excited ..so was i...when home early after work...

The box was really huge...lots of air space..knn...smaller box could have save some more $$

Marcus was begging me to give him one of the train head when i kept the set for the night...he begged me and wife...and in the end..lucky i had a BanDai replica of the same train head..same scale.. $6 only...passed that to him..and he was happy...
but i cant bluff him for long..he will realise it sooner or later...

Dropped by JohnLittle / seiyu Bugis today, saw Sat's paper there was a THomas set on offer..29.95 plus additional 20% for cardmember at John Little..so went to Orchard Branch..and bought it..the Sodor Loader Set...there were 2 types of offer..the other was a Cleaning Stop for Thomas...too simple...

Marcus was delighted with the Sodor set ... some pics of his set...the track setup has changed a bit....also bought him The Lady....the purple set...

Found out that after fixing the Sodor set...track was short of 1 set....i made another trip alone down to town to get a extra tracks...







Great weekend.....

lol....one more weekend to Christmas.. and places were having sales...in town..

Weekend was wet and cold...and going to town by bus was hell...buses would get jam for at least 30 mins...to get from Lucky Plaza ( beginning of Orchard Road ) to Plaza Singapure ( nearly end of Orchard Road ) i think walking would be faster...lol

This weekend marks the first real outing we had as afamily...Rachel was out with us...Marcus was so busy helping us to push the Pram...it was also his first time with Rachel out....and boy did he get on our nerves...dropped by Suntec and Carrefour..






was surprised that Rachel did not sleep much thru the trip...the most she slept was 30 mins...at the foodcourt when we were having our dinner...she must have been excited....now we are trying to shift her from the "yao lan" to sleep on bed...tough time for me and mrs at sleep ..need to get her used to sleeping a a flat surface...

RaScal at Carrefour...pushing around the whole place...



got home at 9:45..and by the time settle the two kids..it was 10:30..Marcus was so tired cause he did not have his afternoon nap....he slept after we cleaned him up....
