    i heard my name being called

    i dont keep dragon fish.

    i have cars and recently picked up currencies and stamp collections.

    another high expenditure( in my context) is having weekend breaks in hotels(it is really my past time and the best way to chill)

    i collect watches too.

    I would say yes..coz my other hobbies are more sports base that requires little/no expenditure...

    But nowadays, usual hobbies like movies(Vivo gold class etc) and dining(weekend dinings..) already can cost big bucks...

    italian and german supersports.


    i wont say i'm a connoisseur standard collecter cos i know a few of these people and their collection really awes me.

    take for eg, the lp640-4 sv, i initally tot there are only 5 units.
    in the end, singapore has near 20-25 units.

    and there's already an order for the 599gto.

    Shites...lp640-4 sv?! That's enough said about your connoisseur level... So are you a ragging bull fan or the prancing horse lover? Or both?

    One car I've not seen in Singapore is the Ford GT... that is one slick ride!

    unfortunately, i do not own the lp640 sv

    ford gt has no market,other factors for not importing, i'm not sure and i'm not interested too.

    cos this car, when you park in singapore lots, you can NEVER open the door to let yourself out.

    google it.

    jeremy clarkson has one and i think he has long sold it.

    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.....
    Sir (new title!): My hat off to you. I knew there would be creative answers to this very important and insightful question but yours has gone where no answer has gone before!

    As a fellow coffee drinker I do not consider drinking coffee as a past-time ("Is Photography the ONLY (high-expenditure) past-time you have?"). Its a lot more than that, I can assure you. A morning without coffee is like.. like... ok.. how about "Kopitiam without Sion"??

    That's true... no need to google it... I know American car park lots can fit tanks.

    Carbon roadie? I have two Treks.
    The first one is really used until cannot use already. The second one is still minty (condition 9/10, by CS standards)

    Jeanie, so do you take your ride to the KPO? Coz that joint seems to be a magnet for super cars...
