    Anyway depreciation from most camera and lens in one year probably cheaper then the money spend shopping / eating ... so buy camera and shoot more shop less probably will save more money ...

    Conclusion -- recession ? shoot more!

    i think photoshoots are more costy, spending like $80-$150 each weekend, u can easy spend it on a week lunch money plus transport fees. Better spend money with great prudence, this economic slowdown is not a simple short one. It is very serious, read news China side badly affected.

    economic slowdown? can't feel it. economic boom also can't feel it. even if GDP growth is 50% pay also no change.

    no impact.

    Don't get let out by the economic boom and strong GDP growth of our beloved Singapore.

    Many of us are enjoying the level of wealth undreamed of in many countries.

    Singaporeans are immensely fortunate to be blessed with such attributes.

    Open your heart, mind and soul to enjoy such prosperity and opportunities.

    If not no one will feel sorry for you but yourself.

    Economies are always up and down...I need only two more cameras ever in my life (would like more but only need two certain models)...unfortunately both are somewhat pricey for myself...someday I will get there though!

    In the meantime I keep playing with hand me downs which is fine by me...at least I am shooting.

    We could always go on strike but I do not think camera manufacturers will make camera any cheaper. haha

    There is an easy solution to it:

    Send all Foreign Talents home.

    We all get to keep our jobs. And maybe a pay rise too.

    .....not all ..........but the "less talented ones" who have really nothing to contribute should be kept in check ....... don't give these people the idea that the road to Singapore citizenship is easy as in the past............

    Actually if you come to think of it, if these so called foreign-talents are really that "talented", they needn't come all the way here .........

    Malicious?
    Seems Ok. I opened the link without much problem or any warning.

    Are you referring to the content of that page?

    Or are you referring to the parasite, which decided to leave its existing host in search of greener pasture.?

    .... I got warning message when I clucked on that page on Singnet broadband but not when on mobile network...

    Anyway that parasite is now recruiting more of its kind to invade another part of the world...... good riddance to them.

    I guess they have that halfway under control already but on the other hand what is not good is that we are probably more unsafe from elements within our country itself than we are from any place or anyone else in the world. But we drift to politics so lets please stop. OT as well.
