Just a couple of items more, and my Christmas shopping is done.  On the other hand, as everybody else is making their wish lists, I’m joining the bandwagon although as usual, I end up giving gifts that I wish for to myself. Here be the Christmas “wish ko lang!” list:

  1. Kindle 3G/Wifi. I’d like to be able to carry around all my reading materials for when I have to pass the time or queue up at the taxi bay or access a reference.
  2. A tablet computer. Whether an iPad, a BlackBerry Playbook, or the Samsung Galaxy, I want one. I “wish ko lang!” for one.
  3. Clinique Happy – I guess this one will be fulfilled this Christmas, unless those pesky, marauding people at customs filch it.
  4. Another perfume that I love is Clean Eau de Parfum, but it’s hard to find in Manila. Fortunately, I’ve discovered that Watsons is selling it at 50% off. 
  5. A Wimax connection to replace sucky SmartBro. 
  6. The Adidas UP track jacket. 
  7. A new badminton racquet. I still have to think which brand and model to add to the arsenal. And while I’m at it…
  8. A new badminton bag like this one, which should be enough to hold two racquets, shoes, toiletries, and an extra set of clothes.
  9. A real leather satchel with enough compartments for my kikay kit, wallet, cell phone, notebook, book, keys, iPod, glasses, pens, flash cards…
  10. A round-trip plane ticket and a tournament ticket to next year’s Shanghai Open, assuming that Le Fed will play.
  11. Roger’s 2011 calendar.
  12. A round-trip ticket for my travel goal for 2011 autumn/winter. I know it’s still too far off,  but it’s never too early to prepare.  Moreover, I’d like to have a good reason to dig my winter coats and boots out of the storage.
  13. Any decent DSLR.
  14. A Pro account on Flickr. 
  15. An extra gig to finance my travel plans, shopping, and compulsive book buying habits.
  16. Successful launch of my projects.
  17. Health, wealth, love, safety and happiness. It’s about time.
  18. Better opportunities in 2011.
