That crazy, authentic and hopeful gal over at Essentially Jess started this Christmas List tagging thang and it’s taken over the blogosphere!
She tagged me last week and as usual, it’s taken me this long to step up to the mark but I’m finally here and here’s what I want (pretty please).
A home and a family for every orphan in the world…
Visiting a Balinese orphanage last month opened my eyes to the cold reality of countless parentless, poor and under-privileged children. I can’t fix the situation on my own but after our visit, I’m confident that if we all do our own small part, significant positive changes can happen.
Can you also please see what Christmas miracles you can do ?
Sleep. I need sleeeeeep…
I want deep, uninterrupted slumber (pretty please).
I love to hate this photo. I fondly remember my lazy koala bear days but then quickly snap into realizing that they’re long gone. I doubt that I’ll get back to that peaceful rhythm of REM. Ever.
Please tell me I’m wrong.
A small, modest, cosy villa in Bali
You know how much I love Indonesia. So, too have a little space of our own over there, to visit whenever we wanted and for however long, would just about complete my connection with my birth country.
Wake up at the crack of dawn to the sounds of roosters crowing. Then wander to the markets, grab some fresh fruit for breakfast. The twinlets and I would spend the day hanging with the neighbours and locals, immersed in culture and language. Mr Surfer would have his idyllic life, catching waves and hanging ten every day.
A simple laid back life on the Island of Gods. That’s not asking for much, is it?
A ticket to the World Domination Summit (#WDS)
Chris Guillebeau is an American entrepreneur who spoke at Problogger earlier this year. His insights on blogging, community and how to make a living doing what you love just blew my mind away.
Dubbed as “The Woodstock for World Changers”, #WDS is held in Portland, Oregon. There’s only room for 1,000 attendees. Tickets for WDS 2013 sold out the day after last year’s conference. There’s an astounding 8,000 others on the waiting list. What’re my chances?
It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t happen next year. I know your little reindeers will get me there eventually.
Grace With Film …
The creative juices from this Instagram addict has started to dry up lately.
Even I’m starting to get bored of all the twinlets photos I take.
I need to find a new fountain of inspiration.
There’s a couple of interesting one day photography courses out there that have caught my eager eye.
An entire 8 hours to play around with my beloved Olympus while wandering around iconic sites and off beaten tracks around Sydney would be a giant slice of heaven.
You can see I’m not asking much (ahems). Have your people talk to my people and let me know what you can do. I’m sure we can work something out. Kthanksbai.
Now to tag some lovely ladies and find out what’s on their wish list from the Man in Raunchy Red…
Joining Essentially Jess, the lovely lady who started all this Christmas craziness for IBOT.
