ONIC Esports’ Kairi is not a materialistic person — but this purchase is an exception
According to Kairi, he isn’t using his money extensively at the moment because he has long-term plans in place. “Right now, I’m saving all my money towards building a business,” he shared with ONE Esports.
“I’m not sure what business I want to establish, or whether I will build one in Indonesia or the Philippines.”
Furthermore, he stated that he sometimes spoils himself, especially after winning a tournament.
One such item that he has bought is a Tissot watch. According to him, it’s the most expensive thing he has purchased.
Though the exact model name slipped his mind, he admitted it was a dream item that has been on his radar since he was young.
“I don’t like spending things for myself even when I was still in the Philippines,” he shared.
“When I receive my salary, I only really save it and only spend it on food. But since I’ve been competing for a long time, I decided to treat myself with this watch,” he added.
Based on its appearance, it is likely a Tissot Gentleman Steel Quartz Bracelet Watch. He mentioned that it cost PHP30,000 (around US$600), which he considered a worthwhile purchase.
As for whether he plans to purchase more, he said he is happy with this one watch.
