    Default When will you buy your "toys"?

    I always get my "toys", as in camera body and lenses, during my BD. Cause who will scold you for spending so much on your BD presents? Furthermore, how old are my "toys", easy for me to count too, haha!

    So, when will you buy your "toys" without getting "scolded"?
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    die lah, all the bros who spilled the beans here.

    i only buy when my wallet allows, although it doesnt mean that if i can afford it i immediately go and buy. more like i save aside for my "toys" and when the need arises, i can buy with less(er) guilt and pain (in the pocket). if i havent saved enough yet, i pass. if i really need it, i rent.
    a Nikon body, some lenses, a flash, and a whole lot of dusty photos

    Wah... so when you buy anything must add a "LV tax" to the pricetag

    I wait until just before going on a holiday, the "justification power" is stronger then.

    Very hard to tap the full potential of the reserves in there...May take a lifetime or a few to finish tapping it

    While the reserves in the bank can be wiped out in an instant
