Black Friday

If you're staying in US, now is the good time to shop, because today is Black Friday. This is the day where you got huge discounts for your electronic goods such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, televisions, etc. 

But what if you're in Malaysia?

Well, LAZADA brings the experience of Black Friday to the country. 

While it's definitely not as hot as Taobao's Single Day or US' Black Friday but Lazada is still bringing you discount of up to 94%.


Well, I've gone thought the websites....the prices look reasonably cheap. Will do more survey so that I can get some good bargain and save some money. Good luck!

DIY 3: Connect light bulb to a 3 pin plug

I thought of buying a switch for this initially but I decided to put that thought on hold until I learn how to connect a light bulb to a plug.

Anyway, here was an attempt with the help of my girlfriend, YenLeng.

If you're thinking this is simple, you're right but I'm happy that I'm starting to do all these....to create a light decoration, it would be much cheaper to get your own light bulb and connect it on your own...

Here's what I got for myself:






So, the first thing that I did was to connect the wire to the 3 pin plug. It wasn't that difficult but since I only got two wires (without the Earth). 


3 pin plug

I suggest you look through the diagram written on the 3 pin plug and be familiarize with it as well for safety reason.


Connection complete
After I have connect the wire with the 3 pin plug (I used the plier to cut the wire out so that the wire is neatly connected to the 3 pin plug).

Once that part is done, I proceed to connect the wire with the light holder. It's not difficult but there is a need to use a tape to wrap around the connection between the wires.

Finally, you'll just have to connect the 3 pin plug to one of the power, and woila:

LET THERE BE LIGHT!! 

(the moment I realize I truly deserve an A for my Kemahiran Hidup)

LET THERE BE LIGHT!

DIY 2: Rotating container with Jacker Potatoes (in progress)

I saw that there is one empty Jacker's container that YenLeng and I had finished. Decided to give it a try. To make a rotating container.

Anyway, it wasn't really a success and I've yet to wrap the container or add the base but just thought of sharing this idea that I found. I found it creative and it's something new and fun to explore.

Empty chips container

Well, the first thing I did was to cut it into three, since I wanted it to have three different parts.

After that, I use the Starbucks straw that I got before.

I cut it to be the same size as the three parts of the container that I had cut earlier. Then I stick it on the container.

I connect the straw with a chopstick and the rotating container is done!!

Trial 1

There are still work to do. I have to wrap it and also need to stick a cardboard as the base. I'll also make sure that the straw connects to the container firmly so probably have to use a stronger glue.

Hope you like this idea as much as I did. Will update once I got time to complete this project.
