Dear Mom/Dad (and to my Santa Claus this Christmas) (and a Godfather on my birthday)
I’m writing this early to express what I want for Christmas (and on my natal day), hope you read them in time. I have written you before and have enclosed my specific wish list. I’m saddened that most of my wishes have been overlooked. Aside from having you, and our family complete are some piece of material treasures present here on earth that this very year.
You always knew that I am the type of son/guy that is hushed, not the archetypal kid/son/guy that I enlist all I yearn for. With this simple post I wrote, will help you decide what’s best to confer this Christmas.
All I want for Christmas (and on my Birthday) are:
1. Silver plated / Luminous Rosary
I acquired a luminous rosary when I was in 4th year Highschool when Fr. Vester gave us on our retreat which came from Italy. I had to leave the rosary at my purse for the string that binds then was broken. As a child that was raised in an all boys Catholic school, this has been part of our Bosconian virtue. For a true Bosconian in character will never ever leave the house without his rosary on his side.
2. Mac Book Pro
I’ve been drooling over this girl for the past 4 years now. It’s been part of my yearly wish-least, never failed to be scrapped off. I considered buying this year however I got my pointed fingers back because of its price.
I am considering tablet as my 3rd wish for a fact that I crave for a new girlfriend that will be right beside be wherever I go. I don’t care about whether it is an iPad, or a Samsung Galaxy Tab, a Nook, or an Archos. Given it runs on iOS and or Android OS its good to go.
4. Wide Angle Lens (Nikkor, Tokina, Sigma) / Zoom Lens AF 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical (IF) – Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens (TAMRON)
AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
I’m taking my time looking at these two spec lenses, waiting for their price to depreciate so as their value as a lens will depreciate as well.
5. Rayban Aviator
Recently acquired a pair of sunglasses, a sporty model successor of this Aviator shades by Rayban. Nothing beats the Aves.
6. HTC Mobile Phone
Currently, I oozed in this HTC Desire S2 that is out in the market. If I am not going to get a tablet this year, I opt to get a phone. I prefer a QWERTY keys, full packed mobile phone. One that has a vivid camera, wi-fi, preferably Android OS.
Did I mention I love jackets? Not just jackets but t-shirts as well. Before we get into tees, we first get into jackets. I love the Adidas Philippine-themed jacket they (Adidas) have released this year. I love wears that are fitted, because I’m a bit skinny.
8. Project Management Book
A book by Kathy Schwalbe 6th edition Information Technology Project Management book. I’ll be using it as my review book for my dream certification, Project Management Professional (PMP).
There is a difference between an earpiece and an earphone. Earpiece are the in-ear type or the typical two-piece speaker while an earphone are the one piece DJ-type of speaker. If you’re going to ask me what kind of earphone I love to have, I’ll point you to the top brands right now, those are Bose and Monster. I am very particular about the crisp and bounce of the sound an earphone emits. Before slahing your creditcard/debitcard, you may check out the sounds by testing it to Blame It – Jamie Foxx or the Dirty Bit – Blackeyed peas. I usually test my ‘phones on those tracks.
10. Polaroid Camera – Click!
I am going to disclaim, I’m not for the Hello Kitty Polaroid jig, I’m for the Piano Black and the White Fuji Instax Mini. Just a go through trivia about Polaroid. Polaroid is a denoting a type of camera with internal processing that produces a finished print rapidly after each exposure. Polaroid was invented by Edwin H. Land, U.S.
It is said that Land 1st started thinking about the Polaroid camera when his young daughter wanted to see pictures he had just snapped of her. The idea that she would have to wait days for them to be developed upset her so that he wondered why there couldn’t be a technique for snapping them and, very shortly thereafter, showing them to the subject.
I’m fond of reading books, JUST NOW! Thank God for this sudden change. Right now, I’m checking this book over Powerbooks and I guess it’s a good read. Book is entitled Fierce Leadership by Susan Scott. I waste my time reading Malcolm Gladwell book Tipping point, expecting to expand my arsenal of Malcolm Gladwell books. Also, if you;re with me into hacking I have this book that my IT Security professor mentioned in class, I love to have a copy of that book, written/published by Honeynet and also any Martin Fowler book.
As I have mentioned, I’m fond of having myself dressed on tees. But I am very particular with the designs I’m stating/wearing. Links to my favorite shops are on my Felice page.
13. Board/Card Games
When I was a child, I’ve been dreaming of having a Millionaires Game that my cousin have. Until now, that’s still on my back pack of hopes that one day I’ll own/have mine. A month ago I had a chance to visit Toy Kingdom and saw couple of game cards like Monopoly Deal Card, Cranium, and some other Hasbro card products. One thing I say, I waaaaaant!
14. Die cast cars
Not so long ago, I’ve been into car collection. Not the real one but the small ones, die-cast models. I remember when Glorietta 2 is still a structure, you can usually see me on Toy Town looking for new sets of Tomika cars. Sadly, I lost them after. So, that would be my 14th wish.
15. Inkling by Wacom
Whether it is true or not, I want this
16. Calligraphy Pen
I believe nobody or a few knows that I’m into arts specifically into graphics and letters. That I am from a family of artist, and I guess it is instilled in my blood the art of making letters. That’s why I humbly ask for this.
If you’re going to ask where can you purchase one, you may go to Powerbooks Greenbelt 3 in Makati City and you’ll see a wide array of calligraphy pens. 595 pesos to 2,000 pesos.
17. Military Mens Jacket
My Chemical Romanceis one of my favorite band of all time. And in fact, I’m collecting their album as well. (let me plug it as well) I have their Welcome to the Black Parade album.. Helena album please! and the latest one.
18. Any travel related stuff you can see on ROX (The Fort)
I see to it that I update my Felice page frequently, soon as I thought of things to be published. Frequently check that page as well. Right now, there are several band names, and songs I love to hear. I also include Jason’s website there which I admire his works.
Last December 2, I celebrated my birthday together with my officemate and my co-celebrant Gracey. After having our lunch at Rack’s Mall of Asia, we went back to the office as my officemates will do their pending task for the day. Others who haven’t been into Racks with us was given a Starbucks treat by yours truly. Guess what? I’ve reached my quota and look! I have my new 2011 Starbucks Planner!
What a nice birthday gift from Starbucks.
Someone asked me, “What are you going to do on your day?”. I just said, none to her. Honestly, I can’t figure out my plans for that day. Maybe I would just get to the plan the day before.
While conversing, came through my mind searching facts about the day. Then I stumbled upon this site which gave Astrological can I say facts about day celebrants. I smiled at this portion were it states about love and friendship and a few more:
Few people display the loyalty and affection that _______ men and women show. __________ people love on an epic scale. They often fall in love unwisely, but there is no doubt of their sincerity. Learning to live with their romantic choices can be difficult, but these resilient people are up to the task.
People born on this date often place their career goals above everything. This is sometimes their way of coping with disappointments in other areas. They make a habit of doing things in a big way and don’t worry about the price tag.
You love people by expressing your emotions and may be somewhat moody, but nevertheless are endearing to others. You have a desire to be liked by one and all but be careful not to sell out for the sake of others approval. Many good musicians authors and artists are born on this day and so you too may be endowed with a sense of the aesthetic and artistic. You exhibit high imagination, idealism and are no doubt a dreamer who likes to fantasise.
You are tolerant and forgiving, always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. You expect the best from people and draw it out of them, and you enjoy making others comfortable and happy. Because of your emotional generosity, your life is rich with friends, and often financial blessings as well.
You have a buoyant, cheerful disposition and reach out to others in a warm, open, friendly way. Your emotional generosity and lack of pettiness is well known among your circle of friends, and people often seek you out for help, sympathy, or advice. You are always willing to overlook others’ faults, and you sometimes overdo your charitableness.
You are easygoing, agreeable, and tolerant, willing to overlook others’ mistakes, forget the past, and begin again on a positive note. You enjoy making others comfortable and happy, and sometimes overdo your generosity. You often feel that “everything will turn out all right no matter what I do”, and so become lazy and lackadaisical.
Your lucky colours are cream and white and green.
Your lucky gems are moonstone or pearl.
Your lucky days of the week Monday, Thursday, Sunday.

Famous people born on your birthday include George Seurat, Maria Meneghini Callas, Britney Spears, Maria Callas and Lucy Liu.
I don’t believe on astrological facts alike but definitely suits my character as a celebrant of this day. There are things which I find not true, and some know what it is.
Happy Birthday to me!
Dear Mom and Dad (and all those who are planning to give something this Christmas),
Happy Christmas to you! But before Christmas, my day is soon and it’s my 21st year as a human. Aside from having you, and our whole family complete there are some material things which I enlist down and want for Christmas/Birthday.
I am a silent type of person which I didn’t do as such. However, as we had this wishlist on our office may I share my list to the public as well (and well you may have an idea which is which for me). Here are some of what I dream for:
First on list, (yes it is my first) is a rosary. A rosary that is either luminous or silver sterling. I used to have a luminous rosary from Fr. Vester but accidentally got broke. I want to have a new one, and will retire my old luminous rosary. As a child of Mary, and as a bosconian rosary is one of the things which we will never forget to be on our right pocket.
Next on the list, a Mac Book Pro. I’ve been drooling for this since I was in college and now I’m on my professional years, still cannot be able to give myself one. Quite expensive yeah?! If you do gave me one, I would gladly LOVE it and super APPRECIATE it.
Next on the list is an iPad. Well its a bit pricey though I’ve come up with an alternative (its best to give the orignal), iPed. iPed is an imitation from China which runs on Android OS. It is alot convinient on the budget compared to an iPad.
Next in line, Blackberry Storm. I’ve been dreaming of having a Blackberry. I remember when I was a child, all I wanted is to have a mobile phone which is linked to my email. Now that I am working I maybe able to use it more than I was a child.
First time saw this and have touched this headphone I fell inlove with it. The power and the beats are so intense. I love the sound quality, but tell you, you wouldn’t love the price. But if you’re one of the biggies in your company you can shoulder this and give it to me.
Next is.. Tadan! iPod AV Cable. I want this for our new car so that I maybe able to use our TV inside
I dream of having this book for my Project Management Professional Certification dream. I do wish and pray that I may be successful and be able to pass PMP certification.
Next thing I love to have this Christmas or on my Birthday is a Rayban sunglasses. I am wishing for one since last year. Apparently, I cannot purchase one for myself as it is not on my priority list.
Next on my list is an Adidas jacket. I prefer blue colored jacket fitted style. I probably love to have a Philippines Adidas/Nike Jacket.
