It’s already October so it’s acceptable to create a Christmas wishlist this early. Lately, I’ve been wanting so many things but my stingy self is too stingy to spend money. I have tons of things to save for and I ended up spending way too much last September. So this October and November, I’ll make sure to save enough to at least fulfill one of my material wishes. Heh.
I don’t want much. Really.
1. Canon EOS 600D
Because my old dSLR needs to retire. (/insert crying face here huhu) I’ve been using it for four years, and since April, it kept dying on me. First, in Korea. Then when I was in Hong Kong, it refused to function altogether. I almost cried. Buying a new one seems a bit impractical since I’m no professional photographer, can’t even call myself an amateur because saying I’m an amateur photographer means I still take it seriously. But I’m a hobbyist, and my impractical self tells me that I need to have one. Maybe then I’ll start taking it more seriously. I don’t know. But of all the models out in the market, I want this model the most. I’m a Canon girl, so you won’t see me switching to Nikon. Hehe.
2. 1TB External HD
A little fangirl voice keeps telling me that of all the things on this list, I should prioritize this first. I really, really want to listen to that voice. I really do. I cannot believe that I have officially used up the 1TB memory of my current external HD. What the heck have I been downloading?! Anyway, I seriously need a new one and I’m waiting for a KPOP fairy godmother to appear and grant me this wish.
3. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or iPhone 4S
I’m not a very techie person and I don’t care much if I have the latest gadget or not. But having a smartphone is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time. I seriously want to have internet wherever I go! I’m just not sure what to get, a Galaxy Note or an iPhone 4S? I tried using a Galaxy Note and I love how it’s so big!
But I think iPhone has a better camera? I don’t know. I think the Galaxy Note has better resolution. I still have months to think about this so no worries!
4. KPOP stuff
Ever since Ate Karen and Ate Ninay brought me some TVXQ DVDs from Korea, I’ve been wanting to buy more. I know that I complained A LOT about how much the DVDs cost but after going through the 3 DVD concerts in a week, my fangirl heart screams fore more. If I’d ever win in jueteng, I’ll immediately buy:
- The Secret Code Album
- The Best of TVXQ (CD + DVD) (Available at the any Astrovision near you! Thanks!)
- Tone Album
- Tone Tour DVD
5. TVXQ’s Catch Me World Tour
(Not pictured since there’s no official promotional materials yet!)
Please help Cassies trend #BringTVXQinManila on Twitter. PLEASE! I sincerely wish that South Korea would realize that there are thousands of KPOP fans in the Philippines and thousands of Cassies (currently 13K on Facebook!), too. I already have a plan B in case Philippines won’t be included in their World Tour itinerary but I just really want to hear them say, “Hello, Philippines!” and “Mahal ko kayo!” because I’m shallow like that.
Basically, those five things are my priority. I’m saving for it already, yes, even for item number 4. Haha! Ilusyonada. But if you’re in a budget like me, I’ll be happy to accept any of these from good friends (e.g. you):
Especially platforms! If I were rich, I’d probably buy a new pair every week. Haha! Right now, I’m in love with flatforms! They’re tons more comfortable than wedges or any kind of heels for that matter. It gives me a much needed height without having to suffer. Haha! So yes, it’s my goal to buy as many flatforms as my budget allows. But I’d love to have more ballet flats, a pair of Keds, and a cute but simple rain boots, too. Thank you.
I’m only using one bag for everyday use and it makes me sad! I should avoid leather bags since my leather bags end up flaking. Huhu. But if given the chance (more like more money, really), I’d love to have more 1.) tote bags, 2.) brown satchel, 3.) leather backpacks, and 4.) backpacks suitable for travel! I’m a 22-year-old who still can’t get enough of backpacks. I can’t help it!
I am tired of long necklaces and I’m hoping to buy the shorter ones. It’s just so feminine! Sadly, I do not know where to buy affordable pieces without having to compromise quality. Other accessories are welcome, too. I’m in the middle of experimenting with style and I seriously don’t know where to start. But instinct tells me that I should start piling on more accessories.
Since I’m a frustrated fashion blogger and all, I want more ~trendy~ clothes. Haha. I’m a girl so I can never get enough of clothes! But I specifically want to buy more 1.) colored pants, 2.) classic dresses, 3.) loose sweaters, and 4.) anything with peter pan collar! The cheaper the better. But if it’s a gift, I wouldn’t mind receiving branded clothes at all! Haha
That is all. You may have noticed that there’s no books on my wishlist this year! It’s the first time in a long time, I think. It’s because I have way too many unread books at home and at my dorm, and I’m being the slowest reader lately so yeah. I should lessen my unread pile first.
Please be a good friend and send this list to Alex. Or better yet, refer to this list when thinking of a gift for me. Hehe. Thanks!
