Earphones Cable Repairing

2013 • Posted by Kai @ 2:29 PM

One end of my custom made UE headphones cable came loose a while ago, which forced me to change back to the original cable to suffer the sound quality. Ordering a new cable was an option but it was quite expensive and wasted, so I decided to fix the cable by myself.

I was surprised that people do sell this kind of cable pins on eBay, so I purchased a pair of this connectors to save my cable. I find the repairing was challenging because the pins are so tiny and really hard to solder they onto the wire, moreover the soldering iron cannot touch the pin for too long because it will melt the plastics.

Eventually the cable is fixed and I can back on enjoying my music again.

Pied-billed Grebes @ Burnaby Lake

2013 • Posted by Kai @ 2:11 PM

Being put back on a 7 day work week has cramped my life lately, and haven’t have much time take a walk in the field to see these little creatures. Got some interesting news from the bird forums so I went out to Burnaby Lake on Sunday morning to check out the Pied-billed Grebe family at Piper Spit, but I also hoping for a peep of Green Heron.

There were couple of birders with cameras out there too, and everybody will inform each other if some interesting activities were found. It was cool to have Belted Kingfisher photographed because this is the first time I caught it in fly.


There are also some other birds, like gulls and Long-billed Dowitchers. This little guy is posing “V” at me :)
