Last sunday, I have invite my friend to my place for a home cook breakfast. I told her that I wanted to try making poach egg and she was very supportive by making her way and be a guinea pig. Anyway, I always think poach egg is easy to cook but it is not true. I tried the 4th time and got it right (of course I still serve the first three eggs to my guest). Here is what I did. First, I break the egg and put it into a small bowl. Then I start stirring the hot water and slowly pour the egg in. I cover the lid and let the egg sit for 4 minutes after which I scoop it up and towel dry and serve!!!

I had hard time sleeping for two weeks but now it is slowly healing. I had an infection 3 days ago and the wound was swollen and I had a slight fever. Went for an injection and is getting better.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Sometimes it is hard to see things clearly when we were too close till we missed out alot of goodness in life. Step a little out of the zone that we have been trapping and get another perspective. Might be a new perspective, we never know....

After gotten this frame, I decided to build it up as a single speed. I sold off my beloved Maurizio which I spend alot of time building it but I also want to retain part of Maurizio so I decided to keep the fork and put it onto USD75.
I went to Benson and get it fix but Benson spend a long time to shorten the fork. After shortening the fork, he realise the diameter of the fork is too small for the headset, so he said there will be some "play" when braking. Well, what is a play? The term "play" in bicycle term means lose! He tried to find a suitable ring for the most bottom of the headset cos it is where the foundation is. but after finding for a long time, he still cannot find a suitable one. He said it can still be ridden but will be lose. He give me another suggestion is to use tape to tape around the fork and force the ring into the fork. I ask him to go ahead.
Once the fork is in place and headset is fixed, I brought it home to fixed the rest of the parts onto the bike. The first one is to fixed the BB but I face another hiccups when I start fixing the BB, it was alittle too big for the frame. So I have start filing the fixing cup so it can be fixed into the frame. I spend almost 2 hours and still cannot fix it on. Finally I take a closer look and realise the thread on the frame was damaged. I tired using a flat screwdriver to crave out a thread to fix the BB on and it was successful. I did the same for the adjustment cap side and I had to force it in. Next was the stem. It could not go in totally to the length that I wanted and I filed it again. After filing for almost a long time I told myself it will not fit in still so I think the best way is to saw it. After 3 hours and so many difficulties, the BB and stem is finally on the frame and the rest is a breeze!
Ofmega crank, MKS pedal, Izumi gold chain, Nitto 60mm stem, Shimano 600 front brake, Odessey monolever, Airwalk riserbar and orange hand grip, lastly a temporary Fizik Arione (I am still thinking should I get a brooks for this bike). A single speed bike is born!!!
