My 2021 Birthday Wishlist


As some of you know, my birthday is coming this September. And since my love language is “receiving gifts” (hello friends and family!), I have decided to put together a list of the things I’d love to get for my birthday. Some of them are actually things I’m planning on buying for myself, but if someone wants to get them for me, who am I to complain, right?

To be fair, most of the things I’ve put on my wishlist these past few years were things I have finally gotten for myself or people close to me have given me. So, here’s another list and hoping I’d get them this year.

Whey Protein

As most of you know, I workout LIKE CRAZY - CrossFit, Weightlifting, Powerlifting, and Kettlebell Sports. Whew, that was a mouthful. So, this means that I need to up my protein intake;and since I’m on a caloric deficit, I need a protein source that’s also low on calories. My current choices of Whey Protein is either from Wheyl or Athlene Nutrition, because you can order small quantities from them and try different flavors without breaking the bank!

 12KG Pro-Grade Kettlebell

Last 2020, I joined the Online Asian Championship Kettlebell Competiton, and I won 2nd place on my category. I do want to continue doing Kettlebell Sports, but lately, I’ve just been more focused on Crossfit when I’m at the box. But I feel like I can do my Kettlebell workouts when I’m at home, so I do want one (or a pair) 12KG Kettlebell, to up my KB weight from 8KG to 12KG.

 Wrist Wraps

I need new wrist wraps, because I just lost my already-worn-out pair. It could be a sign that I really need a new pair now. I’ve been eyeing @musclewraps on Instagram for quite some time now, and their designs are super cute, not to mention, you can also ask them to customize for you. And to be honest, I don’t know any other local shops that sell such cloth wrist wraps, which are perfect for Crossfit lifting. They’re not too bulky like what I use for powerlifting, but perfect when used for WODs.

 Junji Ito Manga or Merch

If you’ve been following me on my socials, it will come as no surprise that I would love more Junji Ito merch and be able to complete my Junji Ito manga collection. I still need a few of his locally-available mangas and the 5 Funko Pops that were released, especially the Tomie! I already have the Funko Exclusive 2020 Fall Convention Limited edition, but as a collector and a fangirl, I need more!

 Bluetooth Speaker

This is definitely something I’m getting soon, because I misplaced the last one I got. My last was a JBL bluetooth speaker, but for some reason, I don’t know where I placed it or left it and it’s a bit tough to watch movies with just my normal laptop speaker. This is on top of my list of purchases. I will probably be buying this for my birthday.

 This is the first birthday I’d be spending on my own because of the pandemic. Last year, my family was able to visit me, but because things have been more strict and all, I will be staying in Pampanga and would have to spend my birthday on my own. I’d probably just go on a Zoom-salubong the evening before with my friends. But still, I’m glad for the beautiful things and challenges that I’ve experienced, and the new friends that I’ve met along the way.

 Happy 32nd to me!
