Silly Questions: What would be the first thing you would buy should you win the lotto?

I sometimes bet on the lotto especially when the jackpot reaches ultra high levels.  Do you know the odds of winning the 6/55 Lotto? It is actually one in 29 million. But let's just say you beat the odds and won the jackpot.

The first problem I guess that one would encounter should one win the jackpot is how to claim the prize. Assuming I win 50 Million pesos, how in the world could I get my prize without jeopardizing my safety. This is what I found out from http://www.pcso.gov.ph/how-to-claim.html (the official website).
How to Claim

write your name and affix your signature at the back of your winning tickets before claiming your prize.
Prize amounting to Php 20.00 up to Php 5,000.00 can be claimed at any authorized Lotto outlet or at the PCSO Provincial District Offices in your area.
Prizes worth more than Php 5,000.00 up to Php 200,000.00 can be claimed at any of the PCSO Provincial District Office or at the PCSO Main Office, PICC Secretariat Bldg, CCP Complex, 1307 Roxas Blvd., Pasay City.y.
The JACKPOT PRIZE should be validated and claimed at the PCSO Main Office, PICC Secretariat Building, PICC, CCP Complex, Pasay City.
Bring two valid ID's and prizes can be claim from Monday to Friday, 8am to 4:30pm.
For the system prize payout, please refer to the Prize Pay-Out Chart.


Ok. Assuming you had claimed your prize, what would be the first thing would you buy? A Car? A House? A plane ticket? Think about it because you might just win the lotto very soon and if you do not know what to do with your money, you might get crazy thinking about it. ;)

As for me, I would probably buy a plane ticket.  If ever I post that I am going somewhere far, you know what it means. ;) ;) ;)
