Birthday Wishlist 2012

It is that time of the year again… for me to create my birthday wishlist. Considering I missed out writing my birthday wishlist for last year, I need to make this year’s list twice as long to make up for it.

My birthday
My birthday is coming up!

WHAT I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE:

My Hollywood Star
My own Hollywood star in the Walk of Fame! I just want one, I don’t need to be famous or be a Hollywood celebrity.
Maui beach
I would LOVE to have an all-expenses paid trip to Maui, Hawaii ;);)
London's West End
Tickets to London’s West End. Including tickets to London itself 😀
Chalet by the sea
I still want my chalet by the sea. BECAUSE I STILL HAVEN’T GOTTEN IT. I love the beach and I would really love to have a house by the sea 😉 And yes I know this is a hotel but it will still be awesome to own a chalet that looks just like that!
Yellow Lamborghini
I was going to ask for a Ferrari, but then after the horrific Ferrari-taxi crash in Singapore, I’ve decided to ask for another car instead. And I’ve always liked the sleek look of the Lambo.
Private jet
I think it would be awesome to have my own private jet that can take me anywhere in the world that I want to go at anytime I like…
Diamonds
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. ’nuff said.

WHAT I REALLY REALLY WANT:

Asus EEE Pad
I’ve changed my mind. I don’t want the iPad anymore, especially since I’ve been using the iPhone. The iPhone is one of the most user-friendly gadgets around… until I have to backup everything using iTunes. I want the Asus EEE Pad Transformer Prime because it’s a tablet that comes with a detachable physical keyboard.
DSLR lenses
Any lens that fits with the Canon 7D – because that’s the camera I have! I’m not fussy about whatever lens you would like to get for me…. or if you want to get me an external flash too, that’s fine.
Macbook Air
The Macbook Air stays on the list, simply because I’ve been asking for it since 2009 AND I STILL HAVEN’T GOTTEN IT.
Macbook Pro
UPDATE: I just found out about the Macbook Pro with Retina Display!!! If you were already planning to get me the Macbook Air, consider getting this for me instead. After all, it only costs upward of RM6,799…
Flatscreen TV
I want a HUGE flatscreen TV. 70″ would be nice. That way I can watch all my DVDs and downloaded movies on a screen that’s larger than life. Err… did I actually say “downloaded” out loud?
Home theatre system
If you’re going to get me the 70″ flatscreen TV, you might as well get me the home theatre system too. I’d need great sound to go with the great view 😉

And that ends the lists of things I really want… but can never seem to get. =.=”

Here’s a list of the more practical things that I ALSO REALLY WANT.

IKEA wardrobe
IKEA has finally come out with the wardrobe with sliding doors that are FULLY MIRRORED. I’ve been wanting one for a long time but they didn’t have one until last month! Go to http://www.ikea.com/my/en/catalog/products/S89899447/
IKEA glass door cabinet
Display cabinet from IKEA. I want one so I can show off my dance trophies. http://www.ikea.com/my/en/catalog/products/70182172/
IKEA Malm desk
I need a new work desk. A really nice good one. Not like the one that I have in my home that’s falling to pieces.

And… if you can’t get the above, the following will definitely receive a genuine “I LOVE IT!!” from me 😉

Book Vouchers
Anyone who knows me knows I love to read, so book vouchers would be so AWESOME. Book vouchers to any of the major bookstores would be great – MPH, Popular, or even Book Xcess. I’d prefer higher denominations than the one in the picture though. Or at least, a lot more of the vouchers of this denomination. And a much later expiry date (like, maybe end of this year).
Body Shop Pack
I LOVE receiving beauty and self-pampering products, especially from places like Body Shop, Skinfood, The Face Shop, Crabtree and Evelyn… need I go on?
Bling bling for the girl! Preferably 925 silver, winkwink. Otherwise costume jewelry is fine too - earrings, necklace, bracelet, rings.

A voucher for a spa package would be just what I need to unwind from the stress of work... preferable an all-in package of jacuzzi + massage. Hehehehe.

If I can't get a spa package... a mani/pedi would be just as great ;)

I will never say no to more bags! After all, a girl can never have too many bags...

UPDATE: I'm not kidding, I really do want a piggy bank. But a nicer looking one of course, that would also serve as a conversation piece as it sits on my mantel. Reason: I have a retiremend fund I started which consists of only 50 sen coins (an idea I stole from Lydia), and the coin bank I'm using now is already very full. I need to start my second coin bank. And yes, I know, it's so sad that I've only just got one coin bank full. So if you give me one that's already full of (real) coins, it would be even better.

UPDATE: I have an empty aquarium that's been sitting in my corner for months, and that's really bad feng shui. I do want to get fish to put in them, but somehow I never got around to it. Well... since my birthday is coming up, what better way to get them than to ask for them, right? I want guppies because I heard they're pretty easy to care for. I had several fighting fish a few years ago but THEY ALL DIED... even though I was told they were very easy to care for. So... no. I don't want to kill more innocent fighting fish. (In case you're wondering, I followed all instructions carefully. Problem was, I got different instructions from different people. And no, I did not keep them in the same tank!)

UPDATE: This is a pretty silly wish, not because it's not achievable, but simply because I don't even use Twitter that much. The only times I use Twitter are when I'm bored and I have no other form of entertainment other than my smartphone. BUT... what I'd like is to have more than 100 followers on Twitter. Right now I only have 86. 14 more to go, people!!! Follow me @zyenhoo :D :D

UPDATE: Cut The Rope is my most absolute favourite iPhone game... and I LOVE Om Nom!!! He is so cute especially when I can't get the candy to him... I want Om Nom in real life so I can feed him loads and loads of diabetes-inducing candy. Or at least all the Ferrerro Rocher that some of you evil people will insist on giving me.

I've just discovered I don't really like Hershey's either...

Don't get me wrong. I love DARK chocolates. But one time I asked for dark chocolates, I received an overwhelming amount of dark chocolates that made me swore off it for a while. So... I don't want to receive chocolates for my birthday this year :)

UPDATE: Since I mentioned Om Nom above, I might as well mention it here. I HATE the Angry Birds game. Sorry peeps, but I find it more irritating than it being a stress-relief. Please don't get me anything remotely Angry Bird-like, because I'll get all Angry Bird on you.
