    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.

    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.

    To TS:
    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:
    • 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.
    Thus, consuming instant noodle was just a subsitute for expensive lunch at the food court, Subway or Han's.
