These are the things that I wish to receive on my 23rd birthday three months from now. I’m giving you a heads up, just in case you say “No”, I can save up for these. I’m hoping that you’ll give me at least the 5th item on this list.
Your desperately hoping son,

#1 Canon EOS M
Reason: I’m very grateful and still thankful that you gave me my first DSLR when I was still in first year college (5 years ago), but we all know that even the manufacturers can’t fix its power problems. :(
Why Canon EOS M: Because there’s no reason not to get this one. First, it’s light and I can bring it anywhere. Second, we love to travel and we can’t just take photos using our iPhones. :) Third and most important thing about this camera: We haven’t got any good pictures the past year and our photo collection at home needs an update!
#2 Pedro Bag
Reason: The first time I saw this bag, I remembered your old bag that I saw when I was still little (it’s at home, I can show it to you). This bag will prove that I’m following your footsteps. It will inspire me to work harder and be focused like you were before, until now.
#3 Zara Jacket
Reason: Last year, before we went to Italy you promised me we’ll buy a trench coat from Zara. Until one day, when I went home you bought me one from Mossimo. :| It’s not that I don’t like the jacket you bought me, but… A promise is a promise, Dad. You taught me that.
#4 iPad Mini
Reason: Speaking of promises, you promised me that I can borrow your iPad… But I haven’t even touched it since forever.
Reasons Not To Buy: Because I don’t have any good reason why you should give me an iPad. :))
#5 Breakfast at Fairmont/Raffles with you
It’s okay if you can’t grant the four (4) items above. What’s important is I could spend the whole morning of my birthday with you. We both love coffee, we both love breakfasts. We haven’t gone to Fairmont, so it’s worth a try! We haven’t got any quality time since we went to Europe.
This is more important than anything else, Dad. Maybe after breakfast we could take a walk… to Greenbelt and buy the rest of what I want. But no, seriously.
