Things Shorty & Fatty Say #309: Shorty’s Real 5th Anniversary Gift

Remember when I said in the previous entry that I bought Shorty a Chanel for her 5th Anniversary present. Well that didn’t turn out. Shorty wanted a Vintage Chanel and it was ordered from a site in the US. Some time after she ordered it she was told that they couldn’t deliver to Malaysia. So they refunded us and before Shorty had a chance to buy it again… someone else had bought it.

Shorty was super upset. So when I was in London earlier I decided to go to Chanel on Bond Street and buy her one. I was with my friend Thanee who got his wife one too :)

It wasn’t an easy decision though. I thought of picking a bag and just surprising Shorty with it when I got home but I didn’t want to risk buying a bag she didn’t like. So the decision to purchase this bag took almost an hour to make. A lot of Line messages and a bunch of video calls.

These are some excerpts of the conversations we had on Line on it.

After I bought it I told her that the box was too big for me to bring back on the flight so I was going to unwrap everything… which was a waste because it was so beautifully wrapped. So instead I took pictures of the package and also a video of the unwrapping.

Then Shorty wanted to buy me a nice present for my 5th anniversary. But I told her not to because I think I’ve got everything I need already and I think we’ve already spent enough money for the year.

The Cartier and Rolex was another gift idea I was considering for our 5th Anniversary. Well I notice Shorty doesn’t have a nice dress watch. So I thought of getting her one and I thought it would have really nice meaning because when you give someone a watch you give that person “time”. To add to that, earlier this year when she had pre-eclampsia what she did by staying in the hospital was to give Fighter time in her tummy to grow.

At the end of this experience I really don’t know how college kids make the decision to buy a Chanel so easy but man for us… it was a hard one.

I’m just glad Shorty loved it and heck after 5 years of holding off me buying a Chanel I guess it’s way overdue. Some of my friends buy Chanels for their girlfriends within the first few months of dating. They joke “This Tim ah… before he buy a Chanel for a girl he must be with her for 5 years, marry her first and have her give him a son before he bought her a Chanel”. Well the truth is we’ve had many other luxuries but yeah I’m glad Shorty and me fulfil each other in lots of other ways to make up for my delayed Chanel… heh.

Oh here’s the video that I took of the unboxing just for Shorty to see to give her a bit of the unwrapping experience.
