I smell something burning…

Oh no… I just burnt an expensive in-house developed hardware.

I was supposed to test the function but when I on the power, it does not show any response. (No LEDs light up) Then when I went closer to change power supply, I smell an unmistakable burning smell.

ME: “Did you smell something burning?”

My colleague: “YES!”

Then they gathered around the table and sniffed around for the exact piece of hardware that’s producing the smell.

Oh no… I hope it’s only the power supply that’s burnt…

Busy week

This Sat, I will be going to Vancouver for a one week training. As a result, I’ve to makeup 2 lesson for my student, since she’s having her exams right after I come back. 2 tuition + 2 Master course + 1 organ lesson in the evening practically leaves me with no free time.  So glad that it was term break in NUS next week, at least I will not miss any lesson.

Anyway, I had an interesting experience yesterday. Was challenged technically by 2 firmware engineers. They are really good in Interrupts, ISR, stacks, Semaphores and RTOS. I learnt a lot from them! At the same time, I realised that there’s so much more about C that I don’t know…I’ve got to polish up. (Quote from Ryoma: まだまだだね。。。)

xxxHOLiC Manga getting exciting!

Despite the fact that I am very busy recently, I finally managed to find time to read vol 6 this morning, on the train ride. Guess what! I’m finally ahead of the anime. And that’s when the excitement and suspense pick up.

Was totally absorbed into the story (that I ignored my boyfriend). Nice and touching story. (Although it always ended up with Doumeki saving Watanuki.) Ha, but I like it.

xxxHOLiC ep 20 – Atonement

A rather eerie episode.

A photograph that can show moving scenes… It moved even though Yuuko kept it in a spirit sealed frame.

The photo belonged to a murderer and the scenes that the photo displayed is the time at which the murder took place.

The murderer is the client. And Yuuko agreed to help her get rid of this photo, but in return the client cannot allow herself to appear in front of camera, TV and video cam which is impossible unless she locked herself in the house. The theme: The burden of taking someone’s life is very heavy.

Ouran Host Club ep 21 – Halloween

Finally found time to watch anime. Ep 21 was about the chapter on courage test. The anime added something about the carriage and pumpkin which is not in the manga. Till now, I still could not understand what is the significance of the carriage and pumpkin. Anyway, the theme of this episode is about Kaoru and Hikaru (the twins). Kaoru felt that Hikaru and Haruhi will become more than friends but apparently Hikaru’s mind has only Kaoru.

Meanwhile, Tamaki and the other Host Club seniors played a trick on Kaoru, Hikaru and Haruhi. Hikaru and Haruhi were caught in the net.
