Necessary Luxury - Patrick Hylton
NCB Group Managing Director
MY necessary luxuries are few. Firstly, my BlackBerry — we live in an 'instant' world so I always need to stay connected. Whether by phone, BB messenger or e-mail, I'm always reachable.
I love the game of tennis and like to be prepared to play at every opportunity I get, even when I'm overseas, so my Balborat tennis racket which is used by pros provides me with the speed and power I need to stay on top of my game.
I'm a techie at heart, so my Kindle allows me to catch up on my reading without carrying around the extra baggage. It has become an indispensable gadget for me.
The iPad is used to surf the net and watch YouTube. It's a great way to pass the time, when I have the time. Music is for me the soundtrack for life, and good music can seriously improve one's mood -- hence my iPod. What's on my playlist? I'm a man of all genres but Gyptian's Serious Times was my last played song.
Finally, there's my Lovebird Keycard & NCB Visa Gold card — I almost never carry cash. I earn airline miles with my Lovebird Keycard and I earn up to two per cent cash-back rewards with my NCB Visa Gold card. With these two credit cards in my wallet, I'm completely covered!
