I am quite sure I am too old to be on your Santa list. I am quite sure I have not been good too in 2015. But, I am still writing to you.
When I saw the bear's wish list at the Flowers Dome, I smiled. So many things in a list.
I thought "so greedy. Yet so childlike"
When I thought of what I wanted, I realised I am the most greedy of them all.
I want happiness, good health, resilence, etc.
But then I realise most people who wish for these usually already have such things. So, what I really wanted is the continuity of good health, happiness and such. LOL, talk about greed. Which grown-up ask for iPad or IPhone 6 LOL.
That would be contentment.
Material consumption no longer satisfied my lust, I wanted a lifestyle.
I draft this letter in the morning but it is 10p.m at night, and I still couldn't come up with an item to put in this list. Not that you will give it to me. Perhaps just a list to spite you and proof to myself Santa no longer lived.
Tried as I might, I thought of the following:
To strike group 1 toto.
(But I don't buy Toto and that would be too scary and errie if I do strike TOTO after writing to you)
Then I thought maybe a new computer with my favorite game fallout 4 thrown in.
(But I realize I don't have the luxury of time since holiday is coming to an end and it is not the same RPG with abundance choices according to reviews I read)
I thought maybe a beautiful gold necklace for my wife. Then I realise I already co-share the costs with her and bought it for her as Christmas
Present. Cheapo right, and damn me for not practicing delayed gratification. Told u I have not been good in 2015.
Maybe a condominium for our family to lived in. So that I need not be jealous of other friends who might not earn as much as me but buying and upgrading properties nonetheless. Those who earn more than me, they already have Mutiple properties already.
But such expensive Wish is like asking to strike toto, and most importantly,
I think I provide a home and I am a gift to my family more than the bricks and mortar can offer. (I know I very BHB, aka shameless, I dun want to repeat I have been bad for 2015)
All that I wanted, in terms of lifestyle, perhaps is that of Fiancial freedom where I could retired young and have all three elements of time, energy and money. Yes, I think that would make me happy.
But I did not have the discipline and heart to change my mindset and bring my family on broad on this dream, so it shall remain a dream.
Santa, you know, I meet someone whose occupation would usually be frown upon or even despised. Nope, "不偷不抢” not robbery or theft. I asked" are you not scared doing what you do?" She replied "so, am I expected to wait for money to drop from the sky?"
I have been bad, Santa, because I expect money to drop from the sky.
Lifestyle. The most expensive gift. Some people sacrifice more than time to achieve it.
Some achieve it through grit. Some achieve it through lower expectations. Some achieve it through brilliance.
Santa, if u have not fall asleep yet, maybe you can give me one thing. Let Koei create another series of romance of three kingdoms game like that of series 11. Series 12 really sucks and they keep producing brainless dynasty warriors.
I would like that game for 2016? Can? I will try to be good for 2016. Early bird request got discount?
What do you want?
