Dozracer: Bulldozer LEGO Kit Becomes Star Wars Pod Racer

The great thing about LEGO bricks is that they can be used to build lots of different things from the same parts. Take this as an example: Martin Latta used the pieces from a 7685 Dozer kit to build a Star Wars pod racer.

Make Your Own DIY LEGO iPhone Stand/Dock

033010_rg_DIYLEGOiPhonedock_01.jpgAlthough this isn’t the first iPod/iPhone dock that’s made out of LEGOs, it’s certainly an interesting design, especially if you want a unique-looking dock and you’ve got a bunch of spare LEGOs in the house. Compared with some of the previous models we’ve seen, this one looks pretty simple to construct.

Training & Diet Week 5 Day 1 & 2


Today I had 2 milk teas, 1 banana smoothie, 3 pieces of a light birthday cake (mine), rice with Thai minced meat and beef at Thai Heaven, which is around the corner. The birthday dinner with the wife was nice. We also had some pork stay and crab moon cakes.

The cake was the size of a small plate and was from the Forumosa. It was extremely light, not very sweet, but delicious.


Today I had 2 milk teas, 1 banana smoothie, 2 nectarines. For diner, I had 3 chicken wraps with some thicker Dan Bings. Wow, they tasted amazing. The thicker Dan Bings make the chicken wrap taste a lot better.

It was a stressful day, but eventually, it all worked out. I met a really annoying Taiwanese man today. I don’t want to meet him again. It’s going to be hard though and frankly, at the end of the day, I don’t have much patience.

Earth Hour 2010

Hong Kong as seen from The Peak

I had a really hard time deciding which photo I liked the best. These photos showcase Earth Hour 2010 which took place on the 27th of March all over the world. What I really like is that you can see the photos fade in and fade out, which is really cool. The above photo was taken before Earth Hour. Check out The Big Picture to see what it looks like during Earth Hour. {via the big picture}

As you know, we don’t fully assemble the bikes, we check that everything is accounted for and pre-assemble them. All that you have to do when you receive a bike from us is to put the handlebar onto the stem and mount the front wheel.
