Advanced concert tickets and a Paris trip in June 2017 to watch the international premiere of Joe Hisaishi Symphonic Concert: Music from the Studio Ghibli Films of Hayao Miyazaki. 

An extravagant gift fit for a music/Studio Ghibli nerd! The music of iconic Studio Ghibli films of Academy Award-winner Hayao Miyazaki  (2002 “Animated Feature Film” for “Spirited Away” and 2014 Honorary Award) featuring Joe Hisaishi’s celebrated scores will be performed live by the Paris-based symphony orchestra and choir Orchestre et Chœur Lamoureux at two concerts in June 2017 at the Palais des Congrès de Paris. A lady can dream!

A local get away!

Something I always look forward during the winter season- to see one of the most beautiful places in Oman. A stay at the Hatta Fort Hotel can really mean something. The view of the Hajar mountains from the cozy chalet is it for me! A one and a half-hour drive, you get transported to another world – to the little Italy in Oman.

A dog

I really want a dog. But I will only get a dog if I have enough space, so I guess what I really want is a bigger home. But I cannot afford a bigger home just yet, so I guess what I really want is more money. But homes are expensive, so I need a lot of money. So I guess what I really want is 100 million dollars. For the dog, I mean.

Hermes Birkin Bag

I’m not really into bags, but if I were to be gifted a designer bag of my choosing, eh lulubusin ko na! An Hermes bag is forever. Simple and elegant design na hindi nalalaos. Puwede ko pang ipamana, isanla, o ibenta. I got inspired when I saw Ezra Santos carrying one. Very classic and understated, but commands attention and respect.

Netflix and Apple Music Subscription

I enjoy spending time with myself as much as I enjoy other people’s company. So this Christmas, I want to have a free 1-year subscription to Netflix and Apple Music. My mind would be at peace if I don’t have to worry about how “I wasn’t able to get most out of this month’s payment” because I’m doing other things. But on a much cheesier note, DXB-MNL-DXB ticket would be nice too! I just want to visit the places I used to go to with my friends and fam.
