VIEWS FROM THE STREET

What's the best purchase you have ever made?

My ferrets. I have three. One of them is an albino. They are so adorable. When they're little, they bite, but you can train them. I can take them for walks on a leash or sitting on my shoulders.

A small tool box. It's cheap and it's very practical and it always comes in useful, if I can't open something or to fix my bike. It's a small thing, but I get so much.

Something from my toy collection. Some things are in boxes, but I have others that I play with. It might be my collection of Disney Villianesses or my Talking Pee Wee Herman Doll.

My own school. I bought my English-teaching school from a friend of mine. I love teaching English and it's certainly much better when you do it for yourself.

My Macintosh saved my life. 10 years ago, I was in the Kobe earthquake and everything collapsed. I lost my business and all my work. I started again from just my Mac.

My Chanel jacket. I bought it here about 5 years ago. It was horrendously expensive, but it travels well. It's a terrible thing to say, but walk in anywhere in a Chanel jacket and people treat you nicely.
