My Top 5 Treat List

November 8, 2009

Ok, instead of my usual techie stuffs or food stuffs or travel stuffs, I am writing something that I hope in the end will get me a new Dell’s Inspiron 13. So I hope when you read this, show some support lar sikit ok, like give some comment or something.

To write about something to treat myself is quite tacky actually, knowing me (because sometimes I can be very fickle minded!) so it’s quite a challenge to come out with My Top 5 Treat List. But I guess if it’s going to get me a new laptop, something has to come out. So here goes…

1. SMART Roadster

Everyone will have a dream car, it could be a Beetle or a Mini Cooper or like ShaolinTiger, a Mitsubishi AirTrek. The moment I saw it, I told myself. Yup, I found my dream car, it’s you, SMART Roadster!

The car is currently no more in production so to find one in Malaysia is like finding a needle in a haystack, that is until 1 day, when I was driving along to SS2 that I saw this house turned car dealer displaying one. So at least now I know if I have the money to treat myself, this is the place to go. Smart and sporty, the SMART Roadster will definitely be in my treat list.

2. Santorini

Santorini, it’s an island off Greece, famously for its little white house with it’s blue painted roof.

One thing I can fondly remember that place is the great Gyros Kebabs and the view from Fira overlooking the volcano. Not to mention the endless days by the beach enjoying the sound of the waves and the summer sun. Of course back then, both me and May have just completed our studies and we have less things to worry about, but it’s definitely a magical place for both of us.

So my Treat number 2 will be a holiday back to this island, along with Mykonos, Ios and also Naxos (nice beaches and topless sunbathing!).

3. My very own Central Perk! (or something like that)

Remember this great logo? It’s the place where Ross, Monica, Rachel, Joey, Chandler & Phoebe used to hang out to have a cup of coffee in FRIENDS. Somehow or rather, this great show have instil some life values to myself and I dare say, some of my friends too. Who can forget the ups and downs that Ross and Rachel have to get through on their relationship? Who can forget the “Smelly Cat” song? Who can forget Chandler’s ex-girlfriend Janice who laughs hysterically?

My 3rd treat would be to be able to open a coffee shop and it’s going to be a great place where friends can hang out, have a cup of coffee and share a joke or two. I think all these years of growing up makes some of us forget how it was to be a FRIEND.

4. A trip to Stamford Bridge

Stamford where, some of you might ask. Well , it’s the home ground of Chelsea Football Club, the club that I supported for more than 10 years now. I am proud to say that I am a 90% True Blue, read below to see why!

I have seen them played in Newcastle and Malaysia but never in my entire 1 year in the UK that I seen them played at Stamford Bridge. It’s something that I truly regret that I didn’t do and the closest encounter that I had was a picture outside the stadium.

There’s a Chinese saying that, if you haven’t set foot on the Great Wall of China then you are not consider a true Chinese. So using this metaphor, I guess I won’t be consider a True Blue until I watch a home match. So this will of course be my Treat number 4.

(p/s: Oops, I used the football supporter card, if the person judging this is a Man Utd/Liverpool supporter, there goes my chances lar…)

5. And my number 5 is of course the Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop!

The last and most important thing on my Treat list is of course the Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop!

Having 3 colours to choose from and with the new Centrino 2 technology, it will definitely take my blogging to a higher level. It’s thin and light design @ 1.8kg means I can literally blog wherever and whenever I want. On my way to work, during my lunch break, on my way home, during weekend shopping with May and baby and much more.

I can also used it as a alternative to watch HD movie on my LCD since it’s able to support HDMI connection. Since my existing laptop is already showing signs of aging (although I only got it early this year!), so it will be a perfect treat for me!

Now, I have share my top 5 Treat List, what do you have on your 5 Treat lists then?
