Dear Santa

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, December 19, 2008 | Published in


Dear Santa,

It’s been some time since I last wrote to you. How are you? And how is your favourite Rudolph? Oh, send my warmest regards to Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen and not forgetting Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen too!

I know now is the busiest time of the year for you, but I hope you will just drop whatever you are doing, get yourself a hot cup of coffee, take a seat and read my letter.

Oh, by the way, I’ve got a gift for you! You know how much I’ve been dreaming of a white Christmas which I can never experience here in Malaysia. I know! I know! It was really silly of me to ask you to make it snow over here last year, but I just wanted it so much! I know that's against the rules now, so well, I’m pretty fine with it.

Anyway, my gift to you is my rendition of White Christmas on my piano. Just click below and listen while you take your time to read the rest of my letter. Hope you like it! : )

As you know, I’ve been a pretty good boy this year. Except for the occasional lies and greed, I think I’m really proud of myself this year. So, if it’s not too much to ask, here’s my Wish List this Christmas…

1. A Steinway or Yamaha six-foot Grand Piano
My current upright piano is more than 15 years old! If you listen properly, you can hear that the tone is no longer as nice as it used to be. And since I love playing the piano for hours on end, a grand piano will suit me really well!

2. A Canon Digital SLR camera
I would love to own this! Presently, I am just using my Sony Ericsson C-902 camera handphone to take pictures. Although it’s not bad, I think I still prefer a real camera! Then I can take really nice pictures and send them over to you, yes?

3. Two front-seat tickets to Mariah Carey concert anywhere in the world except Malaysia!
It will be my dream come true to see my idol, Mariah in the flesh. I know, I’ve attended her concert when she performed in KL a few years back, but at that time, she wore the same T-shirt and jeans for the whole concert as a protest to my country’s ridiculous rule that all foreign acts must be decently dressed. Watching her concert in a foreign country will give me the chance to see her in different costumes, especially now with her newly toned and slim figure! Oh, it would be nice if you include 2 free flight tickets and hotel accomodation as well!

4. A Toyota Vios car
I love this car! Driving it would be cool! I’m not asking for a Merz or BMW, just a humble Toyota Vios to replace my old out-of-date Proton! See? I'm pretty reasonable.

5. An all-expense paid Alaskan cruise
I have never been to this part of the world, so it'll be a dream come true!

6. A 52” Sony Bravia LCD TV
Not that I watch much TV, but it will surely make my home looks much nicer!

7. A year’s supply of Leonidas Belgian chocolates
I promise not to eat all but share with friends who love chocolates like me! And I promise to work out too after eating these chocolates! Which leads me to....

8. Free Fitness First gym membership for the whole of next year
I really don't mind it if you throw in a free personal trainer as well!

9. A 3-day work/4-day rest job with twice the pay I’m getting now
I really don't know where I can find such a job, but I hope you will get me one!

10. An OSIM massage chair
Or even better, a free masseur for every day of the year!

Am I asking too much? OK, OK, if you can just grant me wish no. 1 and 9, I think I’ll be quite happy and satisfied!
Thanks so much, Santa!

Lots of Love,
Foong PC

PS: Oh, one more thing, Santa! Please drop a gift to everyone who takes the trouble to comment on this post! Thank you! Merry Christmas!!

NOTE: Dear readers, due to some unexplained Christmas magic at work, you may not be able to read this post. You may only see stars and symbols. If that's what you see, please copy this post and paste it onto Microsoft Word, change the font and you will get to read this post in English. Thanks & Merry Christmas!! : )

    oh, you already ask Santa to give us a gift too? So that means I can have two gifts together....Thanks so much!

    So, Dear Santa, Could you give the piano which you want give me to this guy? I think he plays it much better than I.

    And, could I have no.2, no.5?

    health nut wannabee mom, thanks! Yes, I played that! Glad you like it! : )

    quachee, you're smart! 3 days work/4 days rest with twice the pay of current job is my kinda job. Haha!

    lisa, my bug life & lina, what do you all mean, decipher what codes and seeing what stars? Pls enlighten me!

    molly, what is it that you don't understand? Or are you seeing stars and symbols like my bug life? That's weird! Whatever happened?

    December 19, 2008 at 10:37 PM
  16. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, I didn't really think whether it's a male or female masseur. Now you mention it, a pretty female masseur will be great! Haha! But you so greedy, want two...! : )

    sean, I'll get ready a gigantic sock, no, two gigantic socks! : )

    angie tan, oh you play the piano too? Thanks for the recommendation - yes your photos look very good! : )

    That is a beautiful rendition of White Christmas! It is very appropriate for us right now. We're currently having a snow storm here. It's been snowing for only 4 hours but we already have more than 6in of snow. I hope we really will have a White Christmas! :o( I hope Santa will bring me that Canon SLR. Say CHEESE! :o)
    Happy Holidays my friend!

    lina, I don't know what's the problem as I use Firefox browser too!

    renaye, I suspect you are seeing stars and symbols like a few others. Don't know why this is happening!

    molly, sorry about that. I also don't know why it turned out like that!

    maybe they dephicer it first before commenting thinking that you are probably playing a joke on them?

    foong, thanks for your compliments! Glad you like my piano rendition of White Christmas! I'm not sure I've been really really good boy, so that's why I asked Santa to just grant me two wishes out of the ten! LOL!

    lisa, that's a possibility. But I could read my own post even from a different computer. Hmmm, maybe should just ask those who did not say they could not read whether they actually could read my post or did they decipher it themselves! : )
