    The other money pit..... 1/43 scale hand-built exotics. Average $350 to $700 a pop. Got around 50 of them so far.

    You can actually buy a real car with that kind of money.... small one though....nothing close to any of your scaled model car... nevertheless still a car that you can sit in and drive around...

    PS. the white enzo looks really great.... even the wheel screw cap details are there....

    Nice!!!! I can only afford the cheaper alternatives like Autoart & Minichamps. Their detailing and surface polishing not the best but suffice for mass consumers like me.
    Anyway, I've stopped collecting already (unless they come out with models that I MUST have)...

    Running / Jogging is hobby for me. Keep buying new running shoes. More advance shorts / shirts for running.

    no one never say anything about spending on xmm shoots? i mean, that's not really photography, and you pay $30-$50 per shoot, if you shoot 2 shoots for each weekend day, that's $40 x 2 x 2 = $160 every week and $640 every month

    i think my high-expenditure hobby is makan...
    i always eat a lot and spend about 40-50 everytime i makan...
    not really going to very fancy restaurant with 200/pax kind of bill but 40-50 for every single meal is quite a big hole for my bank account >_<
    and i gained 15 kilos for the last 2 years...
