His Father's Day gift

22:04 Yannie 50 Comments

I wanted to buy him a smart phone. Stingy husband turned down my good intention. He said that he is comfortable with his old Nokia which costs only RM400. He doesn't always take picture and video, he doesn't know how to play Candy Crush, he doesn't like to WhatsApp and WeChat, he has lost his password to his FB account ....So there is indeed no point for him to own a smart phone. He wants a phone merely to receive calls and to make calls. Therefore, his current phone is good enough to serve him for these two purposes. Period.

When we visited a bicycle shop, he talked to the shop owner for more than 2 hours, and then he took home two foldable bicycles. One is for himself, one is to share between April and me. These two bicycles, the gadgets and the accessories are easily cost more than 2 newest smart phones in the market . He never sweat when paying for these. On the other hand, how I wish the money was actually spent on getting me a LV handbag. blergh!
 

Anyway, that is my husband. He just loves sports and fitness more than anything else. He is definitely not one of those people as described in this quote below. 

The girls created him Father's Day cards. They also chipped in money to buy him a NIKE wrist band.


We went to Port Weld for seafood dinner with in-laws family. 
 
 
 I don't think he mind that I didn't buy him anything. He will only mind if I don't go cycling with him. I am looking forwards to more night cycling with my White Knight. Now , it is depended on when the haze will go away.

  1. Of course we dream to have that bag because other people got it, but we didn't. Nothing special about LV bag nor a Chanel! I feel the foldable bicycle for you to share with the gals is the best gift ever.

    3. Now cycling is a hot trend now. Everyone is cycling.

    4. I didn't know my man will follow the trend as well. So, I kind of surprised to see him buying two bicycles at one go.

      Angeline, thanks for being my great friend. Your home bake cake is always the best gift for your family.

  3. Showing love is more than about showering each other with expensiv gifts.

    Looks like it was a great Father's Day. Love April's card. :)

    1. actually it's really more useful and more convenient having a smartphone.. put aside the camera and chat apps he has in mind, there are actually lots of other helpful apps he can have in his phone.. eg: cycling apps etc~~

    2. You make sense and your have a point, SK. I am just worrying that I may get a wrong model for him. He is super choosy as well.

  6. yalah, men are like that.. we don't usually buy things, but when we really like something, we will not bother about the price but really go for it, and probably only go for the best.. hahaha!! actually it's the same lah.. LV in your eyes is the foldable bicycles in his eyes.. fair and square lah~~

    1. it's so sweet he bought two bicycles one for himself and one for you.. how sweet!! you are always in his thought i can see that.. so have you been doing night time cycling with JJ around the Lake Taiping lately?? :D

    2. SK, you are just asking the right question. He has started night cycling himself. I will only start mine this week. Of course, he will escort me.

  13. My wife wanted to buy a folding bike too. I took a ride on it once and some people giggled. I sure looked like a gorilla in the circus riding the bike. I told wifey to buy herself mountain and road bikes so that I could borrow them.

  14. I realised that cycling helps to tone the legs and buttocks but not the abdomen. I saw the cyclists having bigger tummies now! They ate more after cycling.

  15. I still think your hubby is not as stingy as mine. At least he is willing to buy the expensive foldable bikes. Mine wont spend on anything but only interested in savings haha.

  25. Not sure if Bananaz's is a lady wonder she will buy LV or not as for what I'm right now will not be interested in any expensive handbag/ watches etc.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Crime rate is so high it is quite stressful to walk alone in the streets even in broad daylight. Got a friend who bought a Rolex watch while we were in Swizz who kept encouraging me to buy one or at least one for Mango but Bananaz said no. The best part is..she would keep her Rolex locked at home and only wear it during function coz scared to lose her hand or even her life. So?
