Everyone has a hobby, whether is collecting stamps, collecting coins, watching TV, sleep or even shopping. Everyone is bound to have something that he/she likes to do and enjoy doing it. And well, my hobby if you havent already guess from my blog is non other than..... Gaming.

Parents say my hobby is expensive. Friends say my hobby is wasteful and i am a "Pai Jai Zi". I really really hate people saying this. Ok, i'll admit that gaming is an expensive hobby. Especially if your an original gaming supporter like me. That i can accept. But if you say its wasteful. I really dont like it. Come on,. some people spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars on something like a car part for their car modding. I just spend 150 on a DS game. A car part will break down eventually and you would need to shell out more money to replace it. But with a DS game, i can clock in at least 50 hours for it. And i can sell it with a decent price once i have finished it. Isnt it more worth it than modding a car?

I guess its probably the mind-set of Malaysian also. Piracy is like part of life here. Its extremely hard to buy original games or DVDs easily. People would argue why should i buy a RM150 game, while i can just download it off the internet. Downloading doesnt even cost a total of RM10. Sure that may be true. But heck, you like the game. Go buy it, support the game company they made it. They might just make some better and cooler games for you to play.

Its hard for an ori game supporter like me. Every of them in fact. Its so hard to get a decent pricing on console games here. But guess i'll just have to do my bit to support them. As for my hobby. Seriously, dont critize me about it. You can say i have an expensive hobby. But never say i should spend my money on something else. Its my money, so shut up on how i use it.
