I just read Mr. Longkang’s post and this guy bought his wife a set of pots for Christmas. Snigger, snigger, snigger…..Hehehe, men! Haiyor, why all men likedis wan? That’s why hubby and I have stopped buying gifts for each other for as long as I can remember.
Initially, during those dating, live-in, newly married years, we were damn creative in getting gifts for each other. After some years, I stopped bothering because that old man is very hard to surprise. If I give someone something, it means I have taken a long time to think of something special and when I give, that recipient better be jumping with glee and full of surprises. When I don’t get that kind of reaction, I couldn’t fark care anymore.
Meanwhile, he will buy some damn expensive chocolates which I find hard to swallow (e.g. Godiva) or like Mr. Longkang, useful stuffs like pots and pans. There is one year he bought me a thermos teapot. Also expensive, useful but dang, mana ada spesel lah! If he had taken time to select a cute mug, costing less than RM10, I would be happier than that branded teapot that costs RM180.
Then, I have one male ex-colleague who always buy his wife jewellery. He would show it to us first and normally, all of us girls know that it is one ugly piece but we didn’t have the heart to tell him. So, I think men are better off not buying gifts at all. Just give us money, ok? It will save us women a lot of fake smiles and fake ‘Oh, I love it’. Then, again, we are so damn good with faking everything, huh?
Now, when it comes to buying gifts, I hate doing it. Normally, I cannot afford to buy what I really want to give to a person. And for those that I can afford, I think those are pretty lame stuffs to give as gifts. That’s why until now, I haven’t got anything for anyone. Sigh….
But men, if you are looking for some cool gifts to buy, get those celebrity sexy lips plumper for your wife lah. It will gives her those bee stung lips and make her teeth white and glow in the dark with celebrity sexy teeth whitener.
Don’t you hate buying gifts too?
