It's been raining every day for the last few weeks. We're almost a month into our yearly monsoon season. I cannot remember a day where it didn't rain. While that means it's been a very wet November month, it's also been pretty cool. Which reminds me about insulation. Life in uni was terrible during winter. There was a draft that came in from under my door which made it so cold at night. The insulation in the room was crap too. I used to have to sleep in 4 layers for warmth. But that didn't help my extremities. I used to put stuff in front of the draft to somehow... slow it down. I don't think it worked. But seriously, edge seals would've been nice to have. I tell ya, these rubber edge seals are perfect to keep your room cool or to keep the heat in. I could've stayed warm all through winter if I had these babies.

You know, I've noticed that a lot of things are going the "modular build" route. There are modular homes, modular origami art, and now modular ski and snowboard storage racks. They're pretty great too since they help streamline the manufacturing process and for the end users, they afford you with scalability capabilities. Especially in cities and suburbs where people have just too many things in their house.

Pizza Hut's having a Groupon sale for 3 regular 9"s at RM37. Not too long ago, it was RM35. Probably Pizza Hut trying to increase profit margins from this sale with the costs of having a middle man and all. In other news, I have now a brand spanking new PC that I feel I'm not utilising to its potential. Maybe when there's a crack copy of GTA :D

Running out of gift ideas for all the mandatory gift occasions? Well, one of the more novel gift items I came across today is the burlap gift bag. Perfect for all sorts of occasions and great for everyone, not just your hippy friends! The website favours using the bag to hold fragrant coffee beans and use them as a gift. You can also put other natural items like flowers, seeds, potpourri to give it a real country, rustic feel. You can gift it to your city dwelling friends because it brings them back to nature. So, really... a gift that's perfect for everyone.

I don't know why but machinery fascinates me. While it doesn't make me want to become a full fledged engineer, I do enjoy doing the occasional reading and seeing pictures. From the randomest things like gooseneck dump trailers to tower cranes to juicers. I should probably look into building stuff at home like a quasi neither here nor there mechanical engineer.
