Depending on your job/role, you might want to invest in a decent set of walking boots/trainers.
Again, role dependent, a daysack with a camelback (not sure on the spelling) pocket on the inside, depending on how acclimatised to the heat, and if you're going to be lugging other bits and bobs around with you.

Personal favourite is the Sony PRS-505 (electronic book), you can fit thousands of books into the same space as your copy of FHM, top bit of kit, albeit it a little expensive. Obviously, you'll have considered things like a hard-drive full of films/porn to go with your laptop.

Just my two cents worth :)

IPOD
LAPTOP PC (DVD capable)
DVD's
Digital camera
8GB Flashdrive (keep your porn on this instead of the pc's hard drive - or so i'm told)

Loose, baggy clothes and some warm kit

Buy loads of stuff that you think you might need for day to day use. shower gel, razor blades, toothpaste etc. Then put it into packets so your friends and family can post it to you. Not heavier than 2kg, no aerosols, batteries or anything that can be easily damaged and leak into the aircraft's cargo / baggage.

Have a good one !

decent boots or shoes
