My Top 5 Treat List

60 hours and counting down.
Birth certificate shows that I was born in the wee hours of a beautiful Thursday morning, 8 November 198-.

I’m gonna be twenty one two three four ergh, FIVE in 60 hours.

Every year, I only wish for a good year ahead of me. Okay – that’s a lie. I wished for a raise of my monthly salary every year! Haha.

Well, a raise in my monthly salary isn’t something hard to accomplish compared to some other birthday wishes that I had in the past. Those wishes has remained as wishes for as long as I could remember – unless, someone out there would be kind enough to revive those wishes and give me a birthday treat this year. Gagagaga!

So, JUST IN CASE you think I deserve a special birthday treat this year, here’s a list of birthday treats that you could shower me. ;p

A trip to Wiltshire, UK

What are the odds of visiting Wiltshire as a birthday treat? Plenty! I know you think it’s some unexciting place that anyone would say, “Ahh, c’mon! Wiltshire?! What’s there to see?!”. Well, I want to see the this - The Stonehenge.

Prehistoric monument – estimated age at 3100 BC. Produced by a culture that left no written records. Speculation on the reason it was built range from human sacrifice to astronomy. This is more than a history - this is mystery. A strange mystery. Strange. Atreyu Strange. Gaahhh…

Bungee Jumping at Morrison's Quarry, Wakefield, Quebec

My younger sister always claims that she is a Canadian. Be it on Friendster, MSN or Facebook – she will be the Canadian vampire. YES, she claims she’s a vampire too. I know – multiple personality disorder.

And to conform and approve that she is my half sister from Canada, I would like to take her along for bungee jumping at Morrison’s Quarry, Quebec, Canada. Aaahhh.. now you think I’m such a nice sister who takes her sister along for her own birthday treat? You’ve not come to the best part yet!

You see, my sister is acrophobic – she has a fear of heights. What is a greater way to make her pee in her pants if it isn’t bungee jumping! If she wants to PROVE to me that she is indeed a Canadian, then DO WHAT CANADIAN’S DO! Yes, I know, now you think I’m that evil sister who enjoys watching her little sister pee in her pants because she was told to bungee jump. Oh well, who told you I was EVER nice anyway?

Watching her bungee jump would probably qualify as the best birthday treat I’ll ever received EVER. HAHAHAHAHA…..

Buy me a CANON Powershot SX20 IS

If you can’t afford the above birthday treats, maybe this is a relief to your pocket? HAHA.

I think it’s time to change my old and tired digital camera. It’s so worn off- it kept giving me the ‘Format Error’ screen. I don’t dream for a DSLR to come my way, so a CANON Powershot would just come in handy! Maybe if you give me now, I’ll quickly plan the trip to Canada so I could capture my sister’s frightened look and we can laugh at it together! HAHAHA. Okay – enough with the sister joke. Hope she doesn’t read this. *Gulp*

Shower me a DELL Inspiron 13

It’s due. Everytime I bring my laptop out and put it on a table, some eyes would just stare at me! “Which era are you in girl coz I’m pretty sure you need to change that lappie!”, their eyes tells me. No kidding! Intel Celeron, 40GB harddisk space, and 256 RAM card which has been upgraded to 712 RAM recently, doesn’t excite people anymore. Gawd, don't you feel pity already?! T_T

If you think I deserve a new lappie, just to let you know that I have laid my eyes on this beautiful, newly-redesigned DELL Inspiron 13 notebook computer! The specs are IRRESISTIBLE and DELL Inspiron series are said to be VERY RELIABLE.

Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo P7450 (2.13GHz /1066MHz FSB / 3MB)
Genuine Windows(R) 7 Home Premium 64bit (English)
4GB Dual-channel 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM
320GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive

This is a great value for the money YOU invest on my birthday. Haha. It’s starting weight at 1.8kg will definitely help me put off the weight on my shoulder every time I travel between Shah Alam and KL with my lappie. With that size, I could even bring along my DELL lappie to surf/blog during my vacation!

To begin with, let me just give you a special coupon code 7ZQVQF2RLZRKW3 from Dell that would allow you to make purchase of a DELL Inspiron 13 with RM100 Instant Cash Redemption. NO KIDDING. Hurry up, you have between today till 10 Nov 09 to buy me the gift OF A LIFETIME with the coupon code! BTW, here’s the link for online purchase!

Oh JUST IN CASE, I want that Cherry Red – gosh, it looks so stylish! HAHA.

Support UNICEF by joining the Donor Program

I’m breaking the traditions of birthday treats here, ain’t I? Birthday treats are not supposed to be enjoyed by me alone. I like giving. The feeling is equivalent to taking.

On my birthday last year, I signed up to the Direct Debit Donor’s Program (DDDP). DDDP is a donation program for members of the public who are interested in supporting UNICEF in their mission towards improving the health, education and protection of children in Malaysia on a regular basis.

Two months ago, I have even increased my monthly donation by RM10. Not much, but I’m proud of myself for being able to donate even though the past few months I have been hitting rock bottom.

If I could get 1 or more blogger to sign up for the DDDP, I’d be thrilled to know that this post actually helped those children in a way. I’m asking for your kindness to give a treat to these children from as low as RM38 per month, and this is in a way a treat to me because you are supporting my personal effort to get more people to contribute. I am not paid or commissioned for this, it’s just a passion.

If you have any questions about making a donation to UNICEF Malaysia via DDDP, contact UNICEF Malaysia at +603 2095 9154 / 2092 5812; or email

And that, would be the most sincere and touching birthday treat. *teary eyes*
