collect + hobby = current

salam and hello~i wanted to start blogging every week and i am trying hard to keep to it~hee. today is my fist ever paid leave since i started working as a lecturer 7 months ago. i just stayed at home and spent my time in front of my PC – surfing and gaming. then i cleaned up my room, re-organized my wardrobe and ate my lunch at 5pm.haha. i know that is very late but that is an attempt to save some money so i don’t have to eat for dinner. well..u must know, recession…but all in all. i am fully rested and gearing up for work tomorrow..(sigh~not many people take a leave in the middle of the week)..o yeah~i also managed to re-organized my DVDs. i ran out of space to place new ones. (so i think i hav to buy a new rack or sumthing)-these are my precious collections and counting..obviously (chuckles~)

dvds and 23 inch

here, take a look at them. these are a varieties – most ’em are in English, there is also Japanese (of course) and not forgetting, Russian, Korean and Chinese~hehe..what i like or want, when i buy a dvd is a quality pictures and sound (apart from story). i am really into movies, so i bought my rig or PC to satisfy my needs and requirement for movie-watching~hehe. this is for my own self-satisfactory~



more dvds

this is the kind of hobby that i hav and i like it~hehe.. some of the movies here i even watched it more than once. yes i do agree its cost me some amount of money but, since i don’t smoke, why don’t i use that ‘cigarette money’ to buy these instead?~haha. i already have savings, dvds are  in my monthly spending list. (so does movie tickets~) ^_^v

heres a brief list of current sets of dvds that i have. i am not really very specific in certain type of movie, sumtimes i love it because of the stories,  sumtimes i like the director, sumtimes because of actor or actress, the weirdness of the story, but sumtimes it may be a simple type of story but with deep meanings here and there.^_^
