Chinese egg custard bun recipe?

I'm a big fan of those egg custard buns you find in chinese bakeries.  Does anyone have a favorite recipe to recommend so I'm not blindly trying versions from Google?  We have a nice egg custard tart recipe on Instructables,  but it isn't quite the same.  The dry icing/glaze on top of the buns is extra-awesome, and a tart can't cut it.

Once I had a Korean woman put my hair in a bun. She just twisted it and somehow it stayed in place.

Once I had a Korean woman put my hair in a bun. She did not use any pins, bands or anything. She just twisted it and tucked it and somehow it stayed in place. Anyone know how to do that?

How put hair into a bun without pins, ponytail holders, hair spray, etc.?

I once knew a Korean girl who loved to put my long hair into a bun. She didn't use anything to help, she just twisted it and it stayed really well. I would pay for a tutorial on that!?

Most Superlative Object In the Office This Month: Bun B's Rap Coloring And Activity Book

Most objects are easily discussed. One simply drapes an adjective or three over it, and calls it well-described.  Occasionally, though, one comes across an object that can only be described as Superlative. Singularly Awful, Amazingly Awesome, Incredibly Unbelievable. Usually draped in exclamation points, often overused, and affective in the extreme, these Things Above Things are worth sharing with the Instructables Community in and of themselves. This week, the most Superlative Object we spy with our little eyes is a book brought to our attention by the mighty Wilgubeast. For those of us whose adolescent and teenage years were punctuated by the boisterous and boastful, rhythmically dense and ethically spare Music Known To Some As Rap, there can only be one gift to give one's favorite B-Boy or B-Girl: "Bun B's Rap Coloring and Activity Book". The Rap Game has more than its share of colorful characters, and this book describes them visually and textually with verve and humor—worthy of particular praise are "Brain Boxing With The Genius", "E-40's Word Bank", and "Match The Scarface". There are word puzzles, connect-the-dots, and of course, lots of opportunities to test your crayon skills. Should any of these challenges prove more than a reader can handle, our advice would paraphrase Ice T: "Don't Hate The Playa, Hate The Game".

Memorizing stuff easily

Memorizing Method This was originally going to be my first instructable but I figured it would be better off as a forum thingy. This is a method that can help you remember up to 10 items. I learned this from one of my teachers and find that it is quite effective. All you need for this is a brain, the names of 10 items, very little rhyming ability, and some imagination. Rhyming words that that you need to know... ONE rhymes with BUN TWO with TREE THREE with TREE FOUR with DOOR FIVE with HIVE SIX with STICKS SEVEN with HEAVEN EIGHT with GATE NINE with LINE TEN with HEN How do you apply these rhymes to remembering stuff you ask, here’s how. With an example... say the ten things you need to remember are, computer, a grenade, frog, cow, ninja, thumbtack, phone, cereal, Kansas, and CD. Computer is your #1 item and BUN rhymes with ONE, soooooo, picture a computer in a hamburger bun STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. A grenade is your #2 item, TWO rhymes with SHOE so picture a grenade in a shoe STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. THREE rhymes with TREE, so visualize a frog in a tree or a tree frog STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. FOUR rhymes with DOOR, word #4 is cow, so picture a cow stuck in a door or something like that, STOP! Visualize this image for a moment, and then move on. FIVE rhymes with HIVE, like a bee hive, so visualize a ninja fighting bees or something. Okay, #5 is the last ex. I am going to explain, you should be able to figure out your own images for the rest.

Does anyone know where I can find cheap custom mixed paint in Sydney?

I know Bunnings will mix up a sample pot for about $8, but I was wondering if there was somewhere cheaper, I live in the Western Sydney area. (Yes, I know it's really cheap to mix my own colours using the primary colours, but I'm lazy. =P)

Broken Thumbnail

I'm not sure if I'm the only one having this problem. The thumbnail of my last post is broken, see the picture below. Besides, I've updated the main picture of one of my ibles- Paper-Lampshade/ but it's not showing up in the thumbnail picture. The ible right below the braided jam buns is also having the same problem with its main image, the thumbnail picture of this ible- Bacon-and-Caramel-Cinnamon-Rolls/ is showing the wrong image (not the main image). Is anyone else having the same problem? Please let me know.

LED Voltage? Answered

So recently I had an idea to make a steam gun by heating steam with a NiChrome wire driven by a 9v battery, anyway, to keep it safe and so i knew when it was on, i decided to add an LED to the circuit. I went to http://www.hebeiltd.com.cn/?p=zz.led.resistor.calculator to see which resistor i needed. From what i understand, the resistor limits the CURRENT across the circuit. So, what i want to know is whether the Led will work with the first attached circuit and not bun out from the voltage, and whether the nichrome wire and led will work in circuit 2. EDIITTT: Well, after a few answers, i'm realising i cant run this off of a 9volt, so, what small powersupply could i use?

My Hydrochloric acid and Hydrogen peroxide etchant goes red without any copper in it. How come?

I recently tried making acid cupric chloride etchant; however, my batch always goes a darkish red colour as soon as i mix the two together even when i haven't added any copper. I've been using 3% hydrogen peroxide from a pharmacist and 30% HCl From Bunnings. All the stuff was fresh and in dark plastic bottles. The container i put it into is plastic. It still etches but it's nearly impossible to see if the copper is etched away without pulling it out. Can anyone tell me what's in the mixture that's making it red and how i can correct it. Thanks

Solar powered garden lights mod - request \ suggestions

I would have loved to actually do this but I have had the idea for ages and done nothing, mabye you can? I have plenty of solar powered garden lights that don't last the night. I also have plenty of rainy + windy weather. Bunnings sell the solar powered garden lights from $2 each, Wouldn't it be wonderfull if someone came up wtih a mod to add a little water proof wind generator to help charge these lights equally as cheap? In my area when we don't have sun during the day, we have wind, so the math is easy. Thought someone might appreciate the idea, there are retailers doing this (far and few between) 4 lights for over $100, you can do better!

How do I rewind the cord on a whipper snipper? I want to be able to still bump the centre to release more cord.

 I have an electric whipper snipper [weed whacker / cord trimmer].  The cord ran out and I've bought replacement cord from my local hardware shop, but can't find ANYTHING on the web on how to rewind the cord so that when I bump the centre of the spool the cord will still come out.  I have done an online search for the manufacturer of both the cord and the machine.  The cord manufacturer has a website but nothing on it to show how to use their product!  Even worse, the manufacturer of the machine has NO hits on my Google search (Warrior - an electric model bought from Bunnings) There is an arrow on the spool showing the direction you should wind the cord in, but I read somewhere else online that the arrow shows the direction you should turn the spool when you rewind it, rather than actually winding the cord that way. Someone do an 'ible', please!
