A one way ticket to paradise.
But is there such a thing as paradise? My sister calls herself "painter of paradise" for she lives in Maui, where even the sunsets can be painted in her watercolours. And what is paradise if I can't share it?

To give you a clue of what I appreciate, here is a list of some of the best presents I've ever received:

Books I'd like to get:

CDs I'd like to get:
La Ketchup Song
Dancing and workout music of the 21st century so that I can get more up to date!
Other things that I'll welcome:
