Does being overly frugal make sense ?

    I'd assume a "+HKD4.000 pair of shoes/+HKD1.000 shirt" man would pay for all his guests.

    Don't be a cheapie.

    To me, HK$ 250 is the absolute maximum for dinner.
    You could have great Japanese seafood buffet for that money.

    If you are throwing a bash for your own birthday - you should pay for the bill.

    I don't like paying anything over $50 for a single dinner.

    problem with the thresholds people put in this thread is that it's extremely subjective. For someone who loves to eat, the price they're willing to pay will most likely be higher than the person who simply eats for sustenance.

    @Morrison, I'm curious if you'd give me a few places you'd goto for the following meals that fall without your max $250 budget.

    Steak
    Yakitori
    Hotpot
    Sushi (btw which buffet are you referring to?)

    Steak ? I am vegetarian ( seafood excepted, hehe )
    don't know Yakitori
    hotpot ? Thanks, but no thanks.
    Sushi, certainly, yes. If they have a good variety.
    The place is my dirty little secret, hehe
