Owh did I read 'em all correctly? 100 things? Don't you think it's a bit too many? ^_^

But it's such an awesome list, pal. It really is.

can I add some? Meeting Bernard Madoff, for example?

I was wondering what made you want to visit Ireland. I love it, too. The celtic music, bodhran, green vast meadows, medieval churches and castles.

Ah, Ireland.

The meadows they have there remind me of the world of [strike]Teletubbies[/strike] Lord of The Rings. Purely beautiful, kinda like Europe's version of NZ.

And I'm curious of the ppl too.

Do you notice the way Irish ppl speak their English?

Sexy...plainly sexy.

Compared to the Australians, Scots, Singaporeans, Americans, or Brits, the Irish ppl speak the sexiest English accent of all.

Try watching "Once" or "PS I love you" to see my point.

Celtic music is also another thing I love most abt the Irish. Perhaps we can arrange a road trip there someday, dude~! Hehe.



Anyway akhlis, you and I are both still in our 20s. And the average human life is about 75, so it is fair enough that provided we pass away of natural death, we still have 50 years to live.

Providing that I can fulfil two wishes in a year, in 50 years I would have fulfilled 100 of those wishes. So as you can see, having 100 wishes to fulfil wouldn't be as hard as you think. As a matter of fact, I suggest you make your own 100 wishes list too, there is no harm in making one.



And guess what, I already have two of the wishes on my list ready to be crossed out this year. Can you guess which ones they are? :D
