Wish List

It’s the season of giving and of wanting to get more than to give. Here are some things I know I’m not going to get (I and the people around me are not really gift-y people) but would love to receive. I’m putting this list together because I’m materialistic and self-centered! Also, I have time.


Physiogel Cleanser I love it because it cleans the face without drying it out like most other cleansers do. (The worst one I tried was Celeteque. No matter how little I used on my face, my skin always felt dry and tight afterwards–like I had invisible taffy pullers pulling at my skin from both sides.) Also, this is the least selfish wish on this list because I can share it with my son. (image source)

Light Planner These things are gorgeous. I bought my first one last month and I just adore it–from the colors and the layout to the paper itself. There are no dates so you decide when to begin, which days to leave out (you know, in case you want to make it a strictly-work-only planner, etc), and how much space to use for each day. There are no lines except in the last portion which can be used for notes, and the top left area of each spread (probably intended for weekly goal-setting or something similar). It’s the best planner I’ve ever had so I want an additional one for when I have to switch planners in October 2017. (image source)

Airtight Food Container I want this because 1.) I plan on bringing fruits and veggies at work as baon now; and 2.) it’s a nanay/manang fantasy (I was going to say “ultimate” fantasy but that would mean a whole set of containers, not just one!) (image source)

A Better Fish Home Here I go again about my nameless Betta fish that I get too emotional about. Right now he’s in a tiny fish bowl with some pebbles and a few Elodea stalks that I bought from Bio Research. Soon I’ll get a bigger tank, add more plants, and install a pump and a filter in it so he and I can enjoy each other’s company for a longer time. (image source)

Gift Certificates I’d love to get gift certificates from 1.) bakeries or stores that sell sinfully yummy cakes; 2.) SM Department Store, 3.) National Bookstore; and 4.) any grocery! (image source)

Accordion Folder I get so obsessive over files and paperwork. I have this old accordion folder where all of my documents are stored and organized into neatly labeled pockets. It’s one of the few things I am proud of in my life (hahaha!). Everything’s there–birth and baptismal certificates, clearances, IDs, medical certificates, work documents, birthday cards, and more. It’s still in one piece, but it’s pretty beat up. (image source)

Ube Halaya from A Taste of Heaven We buy ours from one of the stalls that stand in front of Hypermarket in SM North EDSA (Main building). I can’t recall the name of the stall. I’m not even sure if they are indeed standing in front of the supermarket. My sense of direction is almost nonexistent. I’m pretty sure I can’t find my way out of a straight tunnel on my own. The stall is located along the hall leading to the direction of SM Annex. It’s standing opposite Goldilocks, I think. For some reason, although I’m not sure about any of the details, I find it each time. My sweet tooth is smarter than I am. (image source)
