new faucet for the office sink

faucets, sink, water, water filter

At last, last week the office faucet was replaced after almost a year it was reported broken… yea it was almost a year ago… and yea we have a sink in our office… and not sure what was brand of the new faucet… it could be from Delta faucets

Well, it is not allowed to have a sink or any water supply pipes in the office area other then the designated area like pantry or wash room, but somehow during the last renovation about 3 years ago, we manage to convinced the architect and building management to install one for us… we needed a sink in our engineering room or you can call it ICT maintenance room to wash our hands or anything dirty…

How the faucets got broken?… We suspect someone has twisted the faucet lever so hard until it broke coz probably the water coming out is too small… well, the water is too small coz we connected it to a water filter for our drinking water… we suspects the person did not know how to operate the lever for the water filter… the lever for the water filter has two functions… one is to direct the water from the main to the water filter and produce the filtered water, that’s the  ‘small water’.  Second it let go the water directly from the main without going through the filter… and that is the ‘big water’… 😛 So, ever since the lever was broken, we have to use all kind of stuff to twist the lever… even sometime with plyer…

Paint Ball at Karambunai Lagoon Park

Yesterday, Saturday… 3rd October 2009, I help my friend to take photos for their paint ball game at Karambunai Lagoon Park… the lagoon is part of the Karambunai Resort. The park has many extensive sport and recreational activities… kayaking, water skiing, mangrove cruise and many more… will talk about that next time 😀

This is my second time covering a paint ball game… the first one was in April for the same friend for their woodsball game at KKIP.

Last time it was held in an open space area… a site for constructing building. This time it is held in woods next to the sea… at the lagoon 😀

It is quite difficult to take photos in the woods… especially when the players are dashing behind the woods… my camera can’t lock its focus on the player…

I reach the park a couple of minutes before 10am as promised since I have to replace my 3 years old back tires before that…


The first game started before 10.30 am with a cloudy weather… but still I got a bad sunburn on my neck and both hands 😛

The second game started before 11.50 am with a bit of cloud…

And the third game started before 1.00 pm with rain… I did not enter the arena coz I don’t have rain protection for my camera.

And the third game ended in less than 20 minutes because the players’ goggles are forging… if you never wear a paint ball mask with goggles before, let me tell you how it feels… it is hard to breath underneath it… and with the cold rain, it make the goggle fogging badly inside…

And luckily I have a ponco… a thin plastic rain coat… it was given to me by Disney when we were covering the Borneo Downhill Challenge 2009 in May.

You can either swim in the lagoon or use the shower area to clean yourself… but the shower area was quite a distance from the arena… fresh water supply?… yes they do have… in fact they have many pipes without faucets around the park… it would be nice if they have it working so that guest can clean themselves without taking a long journey to the shower area.

Anyway here are some of the photos I took… will post the full album later… after I finish editing them… 😀

Kota Kinabalu Public Toilets

discount, faucets, public, toilet

Did you all notice that Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu City Hall) or DBKK has been upgrading the public toilets lately?

I don’t really use public toilet because of the cleanliness issues. I can’t really recall when the last time I use public toilet in KK was.

When I saw them tearing down and rebuilding the public toilet in Tanjung Aru, I said here goes another public fund wasting project.

But a few weeks ago, while I was in Damai Luyang having lunch, I really need to pee. I finish my food and decided to use the newly rebuild public toilet nearby. Although I can use the shop’s toilet, but I just want to try the toilet since it is very near to the shop… just across the road.

I went there and ask the ladies manning the toilet how much do I need to pay to use the toilet… she said 20 cents… I paid and went into the gents. The toilet is very clean… sparkling… looks like 5 star hotel wash room.

But the one really shocked me was the sink faucets… it is the sensor type faucet. It’s not that I never use that kind of faucet… I used them in places like hotel, conference hall and many other places which are well maintained but never expected it to be in public toilet!!! Did DBKK use the cheap faucets or discount faucets?… I don’t think so… thumbs up to DBKK for upgrading the public toilets… with sophistication!!!
