    Default Is Photography the ONLY (high-expenditure) past-time you have?

    Notice that I've learnt to avoid using the word "serious", especially in KO-PAE-DIAM...

    If not, state other past-times you have that needed $$ to fund...

    Yes, ogling at xmms or cats are counted also (provided they charge your visa for it).

    No worries, voters will not go on public.

    Drink Kopi.....

    Everyday i must drink at least 2-3 cups.

    Every week average around 18 cups.

    Each kopi is around $1.
    One year got 52 weeks....so $18 x 52 = $936

    Sometime i treat my friends kopi or drink at starbuck or coffeebean.....so around $50/year.

    Therefore annual expenses on kopi drink is around $100/year.

    Have this hobby for 15 years.....so i had spent S$15,000 just for kopi drinking.....


    faintz.....after i type all this, i think i should start drink only plain water.....

    Car - weekend type but maintenance still quite high,wife still wants me to drive her

    Cycle - my Italian sprinter(scooter), only 200cc but spares are nowhere that cheap
