    Bought a D700 as well as a Toyota Vios...

    By the way, Sibor linked loans now super wu hua. Once it picks up, time to re-finance the car loan (depending on the fixed rate vs Sibor...) See when the graphs cross
    Nikon D700,50mm f1.8, 14-24 f2.8, 24-70 f2.8, 70-300 f4-5.6

    I think we should refrain from passing such personal comments on an individual's financial status or background...as long as the person can afford it, whether thru by own means or from parents support or whatever, as long as its obtained by legal means, why not?

    Anyways, spending does aid the economy's recovery, after all.

    On a side note...nothing wrong with listing the whole chunk of what you spend over the past few mths, but I think we also have to be mindful for others who are still suffering the effects of the recession e.g retrenchment, pay cuts etc etc.

    Got my 85L a few weeks ago, but we are not in recession here
    It is the camera, not the photographer.
