The impossible dream | sleep

It was cold in SR4.4 School of Economics and Social Science. I decided to pop over to the Kopitam to buy a teh C at 9pm. Of course, I am on caffeine high.

Only 2 words. Sibei cham. 1.37am and I cannot sleep. How to work tomorrow?

But have to try lar. Guess re-reading the mandarin coursework should help. Will try now.

P.S. Dad says the yen keeps going up. Not likely my Canon DSLR price will drop in a years time. How? *ponders over the thought of the many other things i need to buy*

The November Splurge

Remember my one luxury item a month? I've decided to buy a DSLR for November and learn photography for real. It has been something I have talked about on and off but had done nothing about. Time to get down to it and make it real. If I can go for business mandarin lessons, there is nothing else I cannot do.

I don't know which model, or even which brand, but I'm pretty set on it. So once my other half comes home, I will get him to go along with me, which is like a bit of a happy birthday present to myself as well.

Non obligatory non pressurising tip for those who wants to buy me a present but have no idea what - you can contribute to my DSLR fund. Non monetary contributors can also contribute in suggestions and tips. I don't want to spend a bomb, but don't want to get a piece of crap. What are the must have accessories etc will be good.

Who says people should stop spending in times like this? Just have to take a cautious approach, that's all!
