Last week my husband surprised me with a very sweet unexpected gesture by dropping by to my office unexpectedly. And yes it was UNEXPECTED coz he has never done his before EVER! He texted me around lunch time with this:
Honestly don’t know why but I panicked, and sent him the dumbest message to anyone attempting to do something sweet.
EH?? WTF is that??! Sound like an absolutely retard, shame on me. Coz see la hubby hardly surprises me like this until I didn’t know how to react. Blame him, not me
I quickly dashed down to the lobby and there he was waiting like a knight in shining armour and presented me with a bag, not before asking for a kiss. And then, the knight in shining armour drove away coz I turned down his lunch idea (coz I already had an early lunch) and he had to go back to work in Cyberjaya!!
He apparently had gone to Gardens Mall in the morning, got the gift and drove 20 mins to my office, only to drive another 40 mins to his office for a meeting!
My heart was honestly racing the entire time as I took the lift back to my office. What the heck is inside this I wondered, careful not to come to a conclusion there was anything related to Burberry inside coz hey it’s just a shopping bag that could be laced with divorced papers for all I know!! Shit happens and men do have a sick sense of humor too, admit it.
Lucky no one was around so I quickly opened to look see what’s inside.
First saw the card of course (lie, I went straight for the goodie la what else)
Yup a bonus treat for me coz someone had his bonus recently.
Well no surprises he attempted to do this on Friday and got caught in traffic – he’s just very bad at ‘planning’ and anticipating things out in advance. Infact I told him he was lucky I was in the office and didn’t choose to go out for lunch coz I did consider dropping by to Pavilion to redeem vouchers, lol.
After opening the bag, I realized it was really something from Burberry. Why Burberry I have no idea too coz I’m not big on this brand.
After opening the box, it revealed a very pretty wallet, which I have to admit, took some time to like it coz in my mind I couldn’t believe my husband paid RETAIL for this!!
I was smiling yes, but that came with some mixed reaction too.
First off, I already have my trusty 3 year old Coach wallet that is still in pristine condition mind you. Secondly, if I’m being honest, I would have preferred a bag, not a wallet. Thirdly, the red wasn’t initially to my liking – I actually called the store to see if they have it in pink and apparently it’s sold out. So after showing it to my mom and sis, they concluded the red is a nice striking color and mom said it will bring more ONG (luck) so here’s hoping more money magically skips into my wallet. By the end of the day, I was indeed loving the wallet. Plus there’s also a one year warranty on this wallet and this is technically my most expensive wallet to date which I”m taking time to adjust. And yes fourthly (or is this the fifth?!) I was wondering why would he pay so much for just a wallet that would be sitting in my bag most of the time!
Mom, if you don’t want this, I’ll gladly take it!
Then I sat my husband down later that evening and asked him why did he pay retail price for it coz if you read my other post, I’m TOTALLY against retail shopping in stores. I did a quick google and couldn’t find this current model on sale cheaper but either way, I told him next time better if he gives me the cash and I’ll source for something CHEAPER and pow the extra cash by buying something else
But he said, where’s the surprise in that. Oh so very cooly. Could this be a mid 30s change in the husband? And a very good one at that perhaps?? Hmm….
But fark, this just goes to show you how a mind of a woman can be boggling, hahaha. Maybe it’s just me. While I was ecstatic over his sweet gesture and gift, I was also thinking of all those things. I guess end of the day, as they say it, women can do it better and cheaper
I’m happy with the gift though, I really am. The execution was flawless and it totally made my day. And it goes to show sometimes that even when you’re with someone for 8 years, sometimes, just sometimes they can suprise you, unexpectedly
