Christmas is in the air even in this country that used to play Frosty the Snowman in the middle of summer, so I can’t do my regular blog programming.
And while everyone back home is swallowed by the shopping frenzy, I am blissfully listing my Christmas wish list. Coz it’s free to wish anyway.

This comes in two types.
The plain diary:
Or the feng shui diary.
They’re the most fragile of the Apple products I have to change them 2x a year; perhaps if I were still a heavy iPod user, every other month. Because you never know when they’re gonna fall apart, t’s good to have a supply.
Yeah, yeah… I haven’t read it.
It will be out in June though.
Coz vintage Qiu Ze is still hot. (The Taipei shops no longer sell it, unfortunately.)
Anyway, when it comes to gift-giving, it’s the thought that counts as they say. For me, even if it’s just a small token that does not cost an arm and a leg, as long as it’s functional then I’m happy. Functional gifts, are in fact, the best! One of the best gifts I got was from a former editor who gave me this handy alarm clock (after I missed my flight a few days before Christmas) that I still have with me until now.
The gifts I dread receiving? Scented candles, mugs, picture frames. And because I collect teddy bears, friends love to give me those too. But a word of caution: for me, having another bear to add to the collection is like adopting a baby, it’s not just a matter of picking them off a shelf. Besides, I have too many of them already!
Let the countdown to Christmas begin!
