DIY: Replacing Ventilation Fan


DIY: Replacing Ventilation Fan

Maybe about a year ago, wife told me there is a burning smell of plastic at laundry room – and noticed the fan was on for some long period, and the burning smell went away when I turned off the fan. (and placed a tape on the switch not to turn on)

As this was the fan at first floor, getting access directly from the top was not an option, hence studied youtube videos for a long period and multiple times and finally attempted to replace it. This required lots of work – electricity wiring, hammering/screw nailing – as the fan was attached to different direction then intended, dry wall cutting as there was no exact size as old one in the market. Finally, found the fan’s plastic was broken causing the smell after inhaling lots of dust only after I tore down the existing fan. ๐Ÿ™‚

After all – maybe saved about $150-$200 labor cost ๐Ÿ™‚

Assassin’s Creed Movie via GoGo Entertainment at Alaska Airlines Flight


Assassin’s Creed Movie via GoGo Entertainment at Alaska Airlines Flight

Back in several years, I have always thought that airplane screens (especially the ones pulled down from overheads and forcing everyone to stare) will go away in future + I didn’t like “central broadcasting” movie distribution at planes. (i.e. you go to restroom then you get lost).. Just realized we are already at the future I thought – distributing movies via inflight WiFi, but this is a bummer for people who don’t have a smartphone & smartphone app. Regardless & whatever, I am thankful ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyhow watched the Assassin’s Creed movie – have always thought how the movie will tell the story vs original game series & how the “assassinations” will show up in the movie.. -especially the ones you do at inside of hay.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Quick conclusion, this version of movie must have been sponsored by Washington State Apple Commission ๐Ÿ™‚

Happen to have the precious Echo Dot “”White”” as a year end new item at my home. This is mostly used as kid’s music player at this moment, and piling up ridiculous items in Alexa’s shopping list (e.g. ham, bacon..) all input from my kids.

To be honest, my cheap hearing capabilities of my ear tells me the speaker is not inferior to the “Tower” Echo.. still works great for me..Another invasion of Amazon to my home..

Great book on how Starbucks got out of jam during the turbulence and how the leader thought and acted. Maybe one of the best business book I have read after “Who says elephants can’t dance?”

LG V10


After 2 years and 9 months of Windows phone journey, back to Android – but trying my best effort not to donate everything to evil company though.

Other than one scary blue screen, looks good –ย had to install a lot of Apps again with scratching my head to bring back memoriesย ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Starbucks, Mint, Office, Nest,ย Chase – Ah I can do mobile banking again!!!

Phone design looks decent especially

  • Dual screen experience is better than I thought – pretty useful actually (finding where to set up is hard :))
  • Pointer finger/backside button control – This wasย originally tried by Motorola inย years before and adopted by LG in recent models, but
