What you do for a living?

Yesterday DesuDesu asked me, what do I do for a living and manage to afford to buy figurines? *Figurines aint cheap these days.

I’m a Test Engineer in a computer storage company and my job is to test the feature functional integrity. And I’m not a part time super sentai LOL (picture unrelated).

While my paycheck isnt big, I still save a lot  by living under my parents roof and using the car passed down to me for transportation ~( ̄∇ ̄~)(~ ̄▽ ̄)~

I know some people able to make use of their writing and programming skills and able to generate side income rolling in via web. Good for them.

Being brought up with good discipline in handling monies, I’m still able to control my figure spending. I’m kind of lucky to met other figure collectors like Kev, Valho, Aiko and Exile_Gundam, where we once in a while gather and did some figure display booth. Theres no reason for me to buy EVERYTHING that I like 🙂

What do you do for a living?

*An advice, dont make your hobby a burden to you financially and/or socially ヽ(´ー`)ノ

    Surprising how nobody replied to this, after it’s been up so long. What’s the matter? You’re all mafia drug lords or something? ¯\(º_o)/¯

    oh how I wish i am a mafia drug lord, thn buying figures won’t be a problem would it haha. Unfortunately I am just a lowly paid graphic designer, fortunately it’s enough to support my figures purchases ^^
