    Do human beings still use words like ‘bespoke’? Exclusive vocab to describe an upmarket product, eh? ** smh **
    Obscene display of wealth always lives me with an acrid taste in the mouth! Maybeit is because i am not OBSCENELY wealthy!

    But then, your view of the world is a function of where you are coming from, as well as where you are going!

  2. This phone is so expensive for $2000, if only I could buy a Porsche Car am sure they will give me the phone for free.

    I will just start saving for a Porsche Car. lol
