When I feel extravagant it might mean that I am inclined to acquire things as a personal reward for the work I have done. A nice hot bubble bath or spending time savoring the quietness of a secluded place either in my home or in nature can be more rewarding than something I bought. Taking special time will not only make me feel like I deserve to be self-indulgent, but also it will make me feel better about myself. Smileys While being self-indulgent occasionally is healthy, I might want to rethink the types of indulgences I give myself.

Since Christmas is coming up, let me share with you My Top 5 Treat List! Well, I have so many things that I desire and want for Christmas. Of course, that never quite happened and my attempts to be the world's greatest Christmas consumer never quite came to fruition. Smileys


Dear Santa, this year I've been so good that I should be the angel on top of the tree! There are some things that I would like for Christmas this year and I hope Santa will reply to me faster than reindeer fly! Smileys

My list is a mix of necessary, practical and don't-really-need-but-would-love. It includes:

1) Aladdin's Magic Carpet.

It can be used to transport me on it instantaneously or quickly to my destination. Imagine myself floating with the dancing wind, somewhere between the treetops and the clouds; there's no better way to see the Georgia sights around Atlanta than from my Magic Carpet...

2) The self-aware, super intelligent car known as KITT.

KITT's soothing voice that will greet me with various phrases such as, "Hello Michael Monica, where would you like to go today?"

This is the coolest car ever created and people will do anything to get their hands on it. The car has a supercomputer capable of hacking other computer systems, weapons, and its body can shape shift and change colors. Thanks to nanotechnology (and the magic of television). Plus, the car has artificial intelligence so it is the ultimate crime-fighting machine. Smileys

3) White Christmas.

I would love to wake up on Christmas morning and be greeted with a white blanket of snow! I am not talking about a "White Christmas" that your boyfriend gives you okay! Smileys I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones... Smileys

4) Spend a day with Paris Hilton.

Throughout her fame, Paris Hilton has often been compared to Barbie thanks to her slim figure, perfect wardrobe, blonde hair and obsession with the color pink. I wonder what it would be like to have a sleepover with Paris or go on a shopping spree in her new shiny pink Bentley with her! Also, what a slumber party is like in Paris' world. Smileys

Pink my ride: Hilton's majestic Bentley Continental GT.

Last but not least, I wish to treat myself to a new laptop!!!

My latest favorite find...

5) The Dell Inspiron 13 laptop.

The design is, in a word, attractive. It combines a simple and clean design encased in glossy, on-trend colors; Obsidian Black, Alpine White and Cherry Red.

I've always wanted a laptop that will be easy to carry anywhere. With a starting weight of just under 5 pounds, it's light enough to tote around during the day and slim enough to fit into my handbag.

Smart features include a 13.3" high definition display, capacitive touch media buttons, 8-in-1 media card reader and slot-load DVD drive. For the gadget geeks, the built-in wireless networking, built-in webcam and Bluetooth connectivity should seal the deal. Enhanced wireless supports up to 802.11n connections. Plus the Dell™ Webcam Central lets me video chat with friends and family with amazing ease. Plus the 16:9 widescreen format means I never have to squint or lean up close to use the Inspiron 13, all inside a sleek design — a perfect balance in an unbalanced world!

The 6-cell battery (56Wh) is surprisingly capable on the Inspiron 13. With the screen set to maximum brightness, wireless on, and browsing the web the notebook squeezed out 4 hours and 9 minutes of battery life. If I'm watching a DVD on it, I'll get somewhere around 3 hours of battery life with the 6-cell. Smileys

What's more, with delivering 50% more performance, Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technologies lets me multitask at a whole different level. Overall I have to say that the Inspiron 13 is a visually appealing laptop with solid build quality. That explains why this small, light, highly efficient mobile PC is my next dream treat!

Come to me, Cherry Red! ♥ Smileys

Hugs and Kisses... Smileys

*send my letter to Santa*

Ho Ho Ho! There goes my top 5 treat list I'd like for Christmas. I probably won't get them all, but maybe it is possible that I can get at least one of them, right? We can all dream, can't we?? Sometimes making a list like this is not just an exercise in daydreaming. Close your eyes and scan your past for clues. They're there. Just wait... Smileys

Oh, by the way, you can use this special coupon code 7ZQVQF2RLZRKW3 from Dell that would allow any of you to purchase a Dell Inspiron 13 (S510701MY) with RM100 Instant Cash Redemption!! This promotion is only available online or by calling them at 1800-88-0301. So, hurry up!

Until next time, life is such a treat... don't you think? Smileys

My 15" is dell. a bit old (like 3 years old) but still running fine. No problem whatsoever.

14" is benq, bought it for gaming purpose - the only lappy i could find under rm4k with nvida 9600 gc. LoL.

I think 14" would be nice if you like to balance mobility and a bit of gaming.

:-D :-D
