What kinds of things do you splurge on?

Traveling, these days. On flights and food, because I love pushing the boundaries and going out of my safety zone, seeing and experiencing different cultures and different places.

Apart from beer, I guess that's the obvious one, then socializing I guess. So, basically, I guess that means beer.

Scrapbooking. I buy a lot of things for that. Photo albums are expensive, $50-60 each, and then stickers and acid-free paper. I spend too much on it, and it all adds up, but they say it lasts forever.

1/2 Food. Nice cheese and salami from international supermarkets. Milano salami; actually I'm going to get some now.

Shoes. Like Adidas and skate shoes like D.V.S, D.C.s, ES' Lakai etc. here they get different colors of shoes that don't come out in Australia. I've got too many.

My apartment in Tokyo. It's expensive, but I don't want to live with insects, and it's convenient. Cheaper places have no wind, no sun and mold.
