Giffen Goods 2010

Dear Santa, I hope I’m not too old to ask for any of the following.  Whether you deliver them by Christmas or on my birthday, any date is fine.  As you’ve already known, I have a penchant for luxury items.

Back to reality. I think it’s good that I post every now and then my material wants.  Personal fulfillment, prestige, learning experience, the diploma just don’t cut it as worthwhile motivations for me to do well in my studies–and much later–work.  Alright, I will admit that material possessions should not be the measure of one’s true success, nor should they be one’s driving force.  But to be honest, I can hardly imagine myself 10 years from now as a successful architect.  It’s much easier to fantasize about the rewards of working hard.  I’ve worked better in the past with a clear “end” in sight.  Haha!  Maybe after a few years I will go back to this blog post and see if I own any of these items.

On to the wishlist:

1. Dolce and Gabbana Anthology 3 L’Imperatrice perfume

2. Burberry Touch for Women perfume

3. Clipa bag hook

4. Charriol Kimono necklace – This is probably the (priciest) item that I will use the least but I believe I should own at least one piece of statement jewelry in my lifetime.

5. Canon SX30 – Basically, it’s a point-and-shoot one step away from an DSLR.

6. Certina watch with strictly the following specs.  I’m being conservative with my choice of watches here because there are others that I want with a bigger price tag).  I like Certina’s styles because they are both trendy and sophisticated.  Also, the sapphire crystal face on all three of my choices guards against nicks and scratches from regular use.

7. Adidas taekwondo shoes – Clearly the black sheep of the bunch.


Finally…! (Reg Stop Spending!!!)

I think should–no–I will pay heed to this after the shoes arrive.  It’s been a long time since I’ve indulged myself this much for staying up so many nights.

I just got my new Ray Ban shades in the mail last Tuesday.  Wheeeeee!

Presenting RB 3358 14/57.  I got the polarized brown one for 30% off from my personal shopper!  (It feels like victory–yes, even if the country is midway through the rainy season. Haha!)

The next online purchase that I am waiting to be delivered to my doorstep is this. (Chanting) 3 more weeks, 3 more weeks…

I was originally supposed to order this pair. But I couldn’t pick between black or brown nor could think of an outfit to wear with it.

Usually, I follow my shopping philosophy “If you can’t pick one, pick both.”  Although I think deep down, I want to get all three.
