Birthday Wishlist, Huzzah!

I'm turning 29!!!



And I have 29 things I want for my birthday. HA.

Well, my birthday is still more than a week away, so I guess that's enough time for you and me to empty our bank accounts and buy everything on my wish list. Heh.

>7 THINGS I WANT TO BUY FOR MYSELF

See, I'm not really expecting that you buy me everything. Hahaha.

1. 32GB Ipod Touch

Sold my 16GB Ipod Touch last year as I have to pay off some overdue bills [indirectly caused by D kakainez!].

And I so miss my tunes already -- during commute and at work. And my Veronica Mars!

2. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II



I want to use some other lens aside from my kit lens, and I think this is the cheapest option for now. And I've seen photos taken by this kind of lens, and I was inggit. Hehehe.

3. Canon IXUS 980IS



The Olympus camera has conked out :( So I want another point-and-shoot that I can bring along everyday :) [That is, won't hog too much space inside my office bag, or make me develop my muscles with its weight. Heh.] This has manual controls too so I can go artsy-fartsy when the need arises.

4. a new phone

The phone I'm using right now was given by D during our anniversary last year. Yeah, I know right, better for me to get rid of it.

I'm thinking either the Nokia e71 (but it's kind of an old model already) or the Nokia 5800.

5. external portable hard drive

It doesn't really have to be portable. I just need enough space so that I can get my files from the PC, and can accommodate one more season of my favorite shows. So I'm thinking of buying 1TB :) Although my budget will settle for 500GB. Heh.

6. shoes!



Fierce davah!!! I already saw the second one in Aldo Galleria. And I saw a look-alike of the first one at CMG [which is of course way cheaper, I bet]. I just have to decide which one to buy ;)

7. An out-of-town trip by myself

I would like to do this in Cebu. I've been to Cebu three times already (IKR?!?) so it won't be that scary an experience -- as I think I'm kind of familiar with the city already. I'd like to stay at Shangri-La's Mactan Island Resort -- so I can be a bit shushal :D

7 THINGS I WANT TO SAVE UP FOR

Not in any order. As if I'll go first for the designer bag than the house, right? Although I might go for the laptop and flash first. Hahahah.

1. A designer bag



Well, it doesn't have to be LV, but I LVoe these two designs. The Speedy is black and simple. While the Neo Cabby is in denim, and in black, san ka pa diba? I like black bags better because I don't think brown [the classic LV color] is bagay with me.

2. A new laptop

I need more space, more speed and more power. It doesn't have to be itty-bitty. I think I want a MacBook, but I might just be wanting it for the geeky-cool factor. Heh.

Darice will get this old one of course. So that she can have all the time in the world to watch her weird YouTube videos. [Dun worry, I do PG naman]

3. Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM



A friend told me that if I'm going to invest in new lens, that I should get this. Methinks, if I'm going to get this, I won't use any other lens anymore -- because I'll be too poor to buy new lens already by then! Hahahaha.

4. Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash



I actually do not have a basis for this. Basta gusto ko lang ng flash, sometime in the future, but not really necessary right now. But I want pa rin.

5. My own house!

With the things happening in my life right now, I think this should be my next big step. The new logistical arrangements are just temporary, and I don't want to live my whole life just renting space diba?! Kinda money down the drain yun, methinks.

6. My own car with driver!

And I will not commute forever! Hahahah.

I'll buy a car only when I can afford a driver already. Hahahahah!

[Had a really really really bad experience driving which just proved I am too taranta-da to drive.]

7. Trip to US or Europe

Shet. I can only die when I've visited US and Europe. So really, win-win situation, because I don't wanna die yet, or anytime in the near future, so I have the whole of my life to save up for this trip. Heh.

THINGS I'VE BEEN DYING TO HAVE LIKE SINCE FOREVAH

These are things that I've been meaning to buy but can't because of either my budget then, or by circumstance (out-of-stock, order online only, etc). But, good things come to those who wait ;)

1. Holga filter set



Borrowed from a friend, used it on my dSLR, and I was hooked! See pictures here!

2. Holga 35mm adapter



I would like to take lomo photos with the sprockets :D And 35mm slide films are more available than 120mm, and I wanna try slide film naman so I can cross-process and get really astig colors :D

3. A purple/black laptop bag that doesn't look like a laptop bag

I've seen so many laptop bags already that fit the above description, but I always always always do not have the budget at that time to buy one! Argh.

There are stylish ones I saw at Digital Walker, and one store in Boni High Street (forgot the name), and they cost almost 3k++. Eh onti na lang Crumpler na yon eh! :P

4. Veronica Mars Season 1 - 3 Original DVDs



So that I can curl up in bed, with a batch of snickerdoodles and hot choco, while I watch the best. damn. show. ever on a big-ass TV (the TV can wait, hence, not here on the wishlist :P)

5. Neptune Noir: Unauthorized Investigations into Veronica Mars



So curious about the essays here. Of course, not to be found in any bookstore here in the Philippines, hahahah.

6. Any Christopher Pike book

What? At least I'm not into R.L Stine.

Yeah actually, I have almost all his books already, hee. But I still don't have some of the earlier ones (Final Friends series for example), and also some of his more adult books (like Sati).

7. my own domain and web server

THANK YOU TY AND TRACY FOR THE GODADDY GIFT CARD! MWAH!

I don't know what's wrong with me that I can't just sign up right now as in now na for a domain. I only want one domain (as of now) and I'm pretty sure you know what I want, so please, either buy it for me, or fucking hands off that domain. Kthxbai.

I WANT I WANT I WANT NAO NA!

No, I can't wait. I must have these NOW.

1. Eraserheads Reunion Concert DVD

OMFG. THANK YOU GIRLS! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! SALAMAT SA PAGSAMA SAKIN SA PAGSALUBONG NG AKING KAARAWAN! MWAAAAAAAAAH.

OMFG. To be released on my birthday to boot! Happy birthday to me talaga!!!! Aylabyu Ely!!!! :DDDDD

2. A ticket for the Eraserheads Reunion Concert: The Final Set

Gold section please!!! And let's be there like by 9am. Hahahaha.

3. We All Have Excess Baggage bag by Kenneth Cole



Ahlavet.

Eco + wit = WIN.

4. SUPERPROXY shirt from Francis Magalona's store

THANK YOU TO MY PROJECT MATES!!! AHLAVET!!! KULANG NA LANG TICKET SA CONCERT!!!

So I can wear it during the Eraserheads concert, FTMFW diba?!?

5. Astounding Magnetic Rope



I want to fill up one wall in any room with photos and I think these are an ASTOUNDING way to do it. Watchutink?

6. will plurk for karma T-shirt



Yeah, a not so obvious way to show the world I'm addicted to Plurk. Heh.

I wish they'd make other Plurk shirts though.

7. Veronica Mars movie!!!

Please please please please please let it happen please please.

SUNTOK-SA-BUWAN WISH

1. One last date with D.

Coffee and cake in the afternoon, then a movie. Late dinner then drinking and dancing. Then lots of sexy time. Hee.


Er, never mind. Kelangan ko pang sumuntok sa buwan? Effort pa ako, eh birthday ko na nga diba? :P

I don't want to be with a person on my very special day who doesn't want never really wanted to be with me. He doesn't deserve my company and my attention. Oh and my excellent dancing and sexual skills. HA!

And so, ALL I WANT FOR MY BIRTHDAY IS:

1. To be with my family and friends, who have done nothing but truly love and care for me all these years.

And I end this very loooooooooooong wish list with this, because I know, you all will be able to fulfill my #1 birthday wish:

THANK YOU :-*

  1. Hey Shelly, which Pike books are you into? I used to have a whole load of 'em way back in HS years and some of them survived the heavy typhoons. I know I have Sati and The Listeners, and others, but I am rounding up those books that got lost as well. :) I can sponsor one if I see one around here. :)

  2. Hi Apple :D

    I'm looking for the Final Friends series (The Party, The Dance, The Graduation), and the first two Remember Me books as I lost them already.

    I've read Sati but as an ebook so I'm looking for a copy of that, and I haven't read The Listeners yet! And I really want to get copies of his newest novels like Falling, The Blind Mirror and The Grave :D

    Haaay, it's so hard to look for Pike books here already :( I had a few rare finds in used books stores, but i think i've bought all already, hahaha.

  7. ano bang domain name gusto mo sagot ko na pati hosting. honest. pramis :D

    re: "good husbands are created by good wives"

    ano ba yan chicken and egg? pero MIL mo yun eh, she would say that, so sige nalang pag pasensiyahan mo na. generation nya yung hindi naniniwala sa kung hindi ukol hindi bubukol. minsan nga para sa kanila ok lang magkabukol just to stay married.

    hay naku.

  8. bambit, na-shy naman ako *blush* hahahaha. meron nang sasagot YATA ng domain name and ng hosting eh. kung di man yun matuloy, sabihan kita ;) salamat sa offer :D
