Give ME a GIFT

I'm suppose to post on this as early as in December, but i find that i had more pressing issues to be discussed compared to this one. Now, its time..to drill our boys :P and to 'enlighten' our girls..



See the picture above? Taken from TheStar..its a giant heart shape of 999 stalks of roses..given by Dan Yeoh, 36 for his gf, Yvonne Teh, 27 on her birthday..yes, girls love to be 'showered' with flower especially roses..but 999 stalks of them? The 3D heart-shaped bouque costs him RM3,500 poorer..but for him, money doesn't matter..but i wonder if everyone thinks the same..

The newspaper even conducted a poll, asking the readers if a gift of 999 roses will sway their love..but in general, the answer is NO..

While gift of love is something personal and i'm certainly not going to debate if Dan was right in spending so much for roses which won't last more than a week...but i wanna know if our beloved male bloggers would do the same or something similar for their loved ones? or..do you guys have better ideas?? and girls..what will be THE gift you most expect your bf/husband to present to you?

well...i seem to be the first one around here...i wouldnt encourage my bf/husband to present me with a huge bouquet of roses..well of course it's sweet...but it's gonna wilt away and there goes all the money down the drain..

personally, i would appreciate quality time spent with each other in peace without disruption...i guess that's a real luxury to me..and if he insists on spending the money (that is if he's really crazy or sumthing), i guess we could go for a vacation ..i love travelling and it would be nice to spend quality time with my loved one while digging up new experiences abroad.

lol. my sweetie woould not even dream of giving me 999 roses. nor would i expect it. let`s see, i can expect techno gadgets as gift, and definitely jewellery. he has presented me with a single stalk of rose on a normal day just cause it made him think of me and it made my day :)

but i guess for dan those roses symbolizes his love.

Interesting post Amu...

That's just too much - that big fat heart...but it's sweet too...I mean if a guy really sent that to u, u would be over the moon...and there will be ppl always criticising it :) just cos it didnt happen to them hehehe...

I guess each and everyone of us does it different. To some it's the way to express their true love, to others a much simpler way suits...

If I ever find a man (lol), I'd like him to give me body stuff and flowers as simple but beautiful gifts of love...if he cant find the time to give me that then he better love me truly atleast..thats all I need from my man :)

Arz000n said...

*blush*

Oh yeah....no second thoughts...I mean, buying 999 roses, not about blushing :)

Nanyaar? said...

I would rather give 1 rose, and really mean it!

tulipspeaks said...

@ praveen

hugsssss for being the first ;)

i would appreciate quality time spent with each other in peace without disruption

hmm..of course,this one will be my number one choice..but believe me..this is the hardest gift they could ever give to us..


it would be nice to spend quality time with my loved one while digging up new experiences abroad.

yes, i like to travel..but quality time spend cuddling each other in sofa while watching dvd would be my modest request :)


@ exasparater

:) thank you..


@ south

hmm.. i wonder what will that be, and no..you don't have to really answer that..just curious though..


hugssss


=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

@ still

let me sum it up:

techno gadgets
jewellery
single stalk of rose

;) you got it all isn't it? *wink wink..lucky gal..



@ keshi

I'd like him to give me body stuff and flowers as simple but beautiful gifts of love...if he cant find the time to give me that then he better love me truly atleast

awww...keshi, don't be so 'economical' pls...try to demand on sumthing, will ya??

hehehe..


@ uttara

now..i wonder what should a guy do to flatter you...



@ m000nie

:)))))))))) 999 roses is too much, but would u say no, i don't want this if sumone give it to you? honestly, i won't deny it :P

how abt a nice dance benathed the moon n the stars on a beach ?

ahem..is this based on experience? *am000nie giggles

hugsssss

hugsss

praveen said...

**quality time spend cuddling each other in sofa while watching dvd would be my modest request :)

hmm...sounds pretty romantic too...not a bad idea at all..

visithra said...

i thought that was a waste of money - 12 roses is just nice nothing more - the poor things die in a day! - id also think the guy has bad finance management wasting money like that

id rather get an expensive gift once in a while - something that will last and can be used on and on - but just once in a while - gifts that mean the most are priceless - its more of in action or words or something personally done like a card with their handwriting ;)

Michelle said...

i don expect much :-)

strawy said...

wowwwwwww 999 roses ... for me 1 rose will do.... nuthing more i want....

hugeeeeee heart... hope he dont have 999 gf's too ...hehehe
hugsssssss am000nie

Rohit Talwar said...

wow! 999 roses ... the girl is sure lucky ... or the guy's a despo! lol kidding ... but watever the case is ... it must be an amazing feelin for the girl ...

Though spending so much on flowers ... ummm ... i'd prefer if someone gifted me something tht lasted longer...

like i wudnt even mind a diamond ring ... or a laptop ... or clothes ... or boots ... sheesh ... am so materialistic! :P

but practically speaking ... i wud want only his time and attention ... which i knoe is askin for a lot ... hehe ...so ne guys out there???

nice post btw... the 3D heart looked awesome!

tulipspeaks said...

@ praveen

i'm a romantic person nah? ahem ahem..hehehehe


@ visithra

*am000nie wink wink @ visithra

something personally done like a card with their handwriting

@ cheesy

diamond ring ... or a laptop ... or clothes ... or boots

awwww...thats a great list! hehehe..

and yea, we all want time and attention from them..will they give?


hugsss

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

Amu lol na I aint being economical...infact Im a big spender when it comes to gifts..my mum thinks one day I will be broke just cos of buying gifts..lol...

but think abt it this way Amu...if a man loves u truly, he doesnt have to give 150 roses to prove it...all he has to do it show it everyday in many other ways he treats u...

Perhaps cooking for me when Im too tired, giving me a good massage ;-), walking with me along the beach for hours w.o. wanting sandwiches lol, shopping with me :) w.o. sobbing, calling me at the oddest time just to let me know he misses me...yeah now find me a guy who would do all that lol!

:)
Keshi.

visithra said...

geez keshi we have the same likes ;)

And the same thoughts - i do like expensive stuff but not all the time - the time spent means more to me ;)

amu : lol let me explain - men r the laziest creatures in the world - for them to go pick out a card and sign their name its a big thing - if they took time to do that- no matter how ugly the writing - it means a lot ;)

PuNeEt said...

gone mad or what...
spending so much of my hard earned money on those roses...

never...

am completely sane...
n although love is blind...
lovers r not...

i have better ways of expressing my luv n spending money...

i wud rather prefer spending on diamonds than roses
n i've done that ;-)

Cheers

Keshi said...
