    Where would you take a downhiller bike to, in Singapore that is? Forgive me, I'm just a nitwit when it comes to bikes...

    kpo at killiney ah?
    boring place.
    it's just a place to show off your ride because the parking is directly in front of the bar.
    overcrowding, food sucks,parking is VERY tight.

    frequent there last time but not anymore.
    you want to spot me, hotel valet parkings.

    i had never driven into cp with my more expensive rides.

    only my 'trash-about' which i drive when i dont give a damn about dings and dents.
    (and when i want to dent other people's doors...)

    Driving and riding are two very different things
    I need to send my bike in for servicing before bringing it out already. Been more than half a year since I touched it and cables have rusted in.

    LOL, boring it maybe, but still a magnet these days lol... GTRs, Astons, Maseratis, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, you name it... I guess those peeps would love to squeeze huh?

    Hate to ask, but what's really your "trash-about" standard? Don't tell me its a Bimmer...

    Btw, just recently I noticed a Saleen S7 zooming past 313, a pretty rare car in Singapore? How many of those can we find here really?

    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"??
    For info.....today i had already drank 2 cup.....maybe after my afternoon meeting, my colleagues will ask me to drink again......

    My bad, maybe it wasn't an S7... What about Pagani Zonda? That could be it? It was zooming too fast past me, I thought it didn't looked like any super breeds I've seen locally...

    aiyah... I join this thread too late... Thought it was about photography, but digressed into things out of my reach...

    I wish I had a 'thrash-about' car...

    wakeboarding was an expensive past time. $120 an hour. 1 weekend = 4 hours. 1 month = 16 hours = $2,000 = 1x 85mm 1.4 lens or 1x D3s in 3 months.

    So... basicly you are exchanging one posion for another

    * I'm gaming less.... due to no $$$ to upgrade my PC
    * Still diving yearly.... meet up with old dive buddies.... and also addicted to breathing 'compress air'
    * Still love to travel.... before I'm too old to travel solo....


    Buying more TOTO & 4D also..... my pay isn't keeping up

    Scuba & Father... For Life

    I don't think I'll go scuba diving, once I almost drowned myself while snorkeling... Saw this beautiful and colourful fish swimming towards and past below me, and my eyes followed it admiringly when suddenly.... *cough cough cough, gag! gag!* There went my below-the-sea-level interest...
