    1. any girlfriend that needs meals at restaurants for several hundred bucks should be dumped asap.

    2. any girlfriend that needs to go disco and spends few hundred bucks should be dumped asap.

    3. any girlfriend that spends a few hundred bucks very often at a time should be dumped, period.

    Ask your dad for a supplementary card otherwise just get a debit card will do.

    Anyway when you are married, you learn to never ever use your credit cards on your girlfriends, cash only and no receipts please.

    Well, learn from the experience and move on. You're still a greenhorn when it comes to romance compared to all the "PROS" here. Their advices are sound, sometimes you need to look past outer beauty into the inner being which can be purer than gold. Lets face it, there are girls who wouldn't think twice about milking their bfs dry, and you're certainly not the first nor the last. You just need to to see which one deserves your shower of TLC.

    Btw, you're still studying??? Why are we even talking about this?!...

    Which reminds me, don't ever ever fall into the habit of collecting Credit Cards as a hobby... they maybe innocent looking plastics... but they can drag you into an abyss of no return...

    Besides my camera equipment:

    Shooting Equipment:
    Open IPSC Gun,
    PPC Revolver 1
    PPC Revolver 2
    Travelling to Continental and World Shooting Matches to compete and officiate at
    Travelling to Local Asean countries to shoot and officiate at
    All allied equipment needed to participate in this sport
    and last but not least, the expendables that make the gun go bang, if get itchy upto 1K amonth ....

    So as the saying goes *Poverty necessitates that I must work* so to maintain my 2 primary hobbies photography and competitive shooting...

    But I guess its all relative when you look at other sports or hobbies depends on your passions.

    Cheers ....

    okayyyyyyy

    let's see. you're married and you have a wife. and you also have girlfriends.

    if you don't want to get caught, you obviously don't happily go to say, equinox bar and swipe your credit card for drinks, food. you also don't happily swipe your credit card for payments made for hotel rooms, etc.

    because your credit card statement is more or less sent to your house....... and your wife will read it, etc........

    cash is not traceable, so you get rid of receipts, you can always smoke it away.

    no, this is not from personal experience; just explaining what 9v meant. naturally everyone got the joke....... except for you! :P

    Nice!!

    This car is ageless! After soooooo many decades it still look so good!

    Doesn't matter what colour, all of them look nice especially with the customary double racing stripes!

    So far it has been only one side of the story. Can we hear from those with just Photography as the only ka-ching ka-ching past-time?

    No mockery here guys, these are probably the most hard-working of the lot as they try their best to earn their keeps and some are probably in better control of their retirement funds than some of us here.

    Please share your experiences as well as.

    So far. Photography has been my hobby since young. But I temp gave up when I got no money.hehe. (But still taking picture)

    Then I like to cycle. Cycle here and there then I gave up. Coz I start work. (But still taking pictures)

    Then I rear fish. Actually been rearing since kid but this time on my own money. But the amount I spend thanks to flowerhorn was like in 5yrs I spent total 6Ks. Sheesh. But in the end I gave up. Though I love fishes. So only spent time in Fish Farm and ogle at them. hahah. (And still taking pictures)

    Then I start cycling again and tried Downhill(At Gangsa Hill). Boy was it fun as hell. But after that, I started to get bored. And lots of bruise and cuts. I sold my bike and all the equipment. (Again still taking pictures)

    I smoke...sheesh. I got HBP. and its a Bad combi. My Medical and price of ciggarette already cover 40% of my salary. Trying to give up, only myself to blame. It also disrupting my performance at work.(Again taking pictures on free time)

    So In the end, which hobby I didnt gave up? Photography. Yeah, some said its an expensive hobby but once u in it for the love, then there is no stopping. Oh even though the girl that I got to know is trying to stop me from this hobby coz I didnt have any free time with her.haha. Always quarrel coz of this...and we're not even a couple. haiz.

    Also I got a motorbike whom I called my wife.haha. Been touring Malaysia with her. But nowadays, been bz with work. So didnt get the chance to go touring. Only use as work bike right now. Its not expansive taking care of her coz she doesnt break down easily. XD
