    I'm going to receive some money from my school very soon. S$1000 in fact.... for taking up and sucessfully completing the Singapore National Science Technology Board (A*Star in short) project on Real Time Embedded Robot Vision.


    I was wondering should I :

    a) Buy some Yonex JP rackets :D
    b) Buy some Yonex Jaspo apparel
    c) Buy a Yonex Japan shoe.
    d) Buy some Yonex SP rackets
    e) All of the above :eek:
    f) Don't waste money. Better off saving it! :eek:
    g) Donate part/all to BF

    I think it'd really depends on who you are.
    Consider, are you stable financially? If you don't have an emergency find now would be a good time to start one. I've got a long distance bill for $1200 once. (actually five times over $1000. Bell sent me an $100 gift certificate at Xmas as a "thank you"!) As you can imagine by debt is sky-high.

    If you're financially secure then do what you find most worthwhile.

    long distance calls are very expensive. :eek:
    At least Canada has cheap rates though... a friend from Cali called me once and ended up with a $300 bill... for the one call!

    My phone bill hasn't been over $100 for 9 months now so it's getting much better. :p

    Man have you heard of calling cards over there?

    For me in Oz, I call my friend in California for 5c (p for you non-Aussies) a minute meaning a $20 calling card is good for 400 mins which is a lot of talking. Which reminds me to go buy another one for the month.

    She joked that our friendship is only costing about $20 a month each (as opposed to going out, dinners, etc), I suggested she was cheap, she didn't take that well ;)
