Note to readers - Mrs B's birthday was LAST MONTH. This is really a belated post, oops!
A few months ago...
Mrs B: dear, my birthday is coming. I warn you, don't go get me anything, ok? I don't need presents, ok? Don't go get me some Mikimoto's again, got it? *gives stare of death*
Me: Sure sure, ok ok, promise.....
Mrs B: Sure?
Me: yes *wink wink* definitely... :P
Much much much later......
Me: OMG! Tomorrow is Mrs B's birthday! I have been so busy I have forgotten about it! Die Die Die! Wait a minute... I remembered her saying "No more pressies", heh! But I think I will still surprise her... :P
That evening, I was going to attend a wedding dinner at Westin Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Since I had time, I walked over to Starhill shopping centre. Now, this is a place where I am totally not familiar with. I had not set foot into Starhill for more than 2 years. Why? Because things here are superduper upmarket. The last time I was here was due to Tangs closing down sale. Yup, I am super kedekut. I am definitely worthy of the title "Accountant", hah! :P
As I was jalan-jalan-ing in Starhill, trying to spot anything nice and el-cheapo on the wallet, a shop that I wanted to go in for sometime loomed ahead. I recalled that when I was last in Brunei, I went into their branch there and walked out within 3 minutes. The cheapest thing there was RM2,000 after conversion, yikes!
Back here, I took a deep breathe and walked in, and immediately spotted a nice handbag thinking "that would look nice on my Mrs B". Held it, looked into the space... feels good, has enough space for all her barang-barang yet looks elegant, I LIKE!
OK, then sloooowwwllllly, I looked for the price tag.....
OMG! It was affordable! I can't believe it!
Ladies and gentlemen, Jim Thompson silk handbags are not that pricey, really. And they are darn elegant. Really really looks good on my Mrs B ;)
Mrs B: Oh no, you shouldn't have....
Me: Too late, sudah beli. Happy birthday, muacks! Nah, ambik.
Mrs B: ok, hoowww muuccchhh?
Me: Cheap! Well, not THAT cheap but worth it all.
Mrs B: annnndddddd?
Me: aiyah, you ar! Ok lar, it's almost RM300, happy?
Mrs B: Izzit? Ok ok, now I am double-ly happy, muacks! *Hugz & kisses*
That's what you get when you have two ACCOUNTANTS married to one another, heh!
BTW, I think I am setting a bad example to me girls. They saw the whole thing and was like "wah, daddy nice! sooo niceee! I wannntttt! 111111". I must remember to say sorry to their future husbands, heh!
