No need to live like that.
If not you end up not buying lens but medicine one day.
Come on, you can get the maximum out of what you have - that is priceless.
Only people like us cannot be contented and can just nice afford a lens then try new toy lor...
End up it is the result that satisfy most. Not the lens.
too many shots...
I ate instant ramen ('guai loh's' Maggie Mee) for lunch almost everyday for 2 years while studying grad school in the US. I worked as a waiter in a Chinese restaurant in the evenings also, and thus, I could eat dinner for free. Normally, I don't use the seasoning powder. Just some dark soy sauce, pepper, an egg and some green vegetables.
Two years later, without a scholarship or family funding, I survived and graduated with honors.
I think I was the one who 'inspired' you to start this thread. When I wrote I had instant noodle for a month to buy my dream lens, I meant:
Thus, consuming instant noodle was just a subsitute for expensive lunch at the food court, Subway or Han's.
- Instant noodle for LUNCH but consumed breakfast and dinner as per normal.
- Use the noodle but not seasoning powder. Use soy sauce, pepper and eggs instead. (Soy sauce from food court, pepper from Burger King and eggs from supermarket)
- I had some additional funds set aside for my purchase.
- I have a full-time job and drawing a monthly wage.
- I do receive travel allowances whenever I go on business trips.
