I was pleasantly surprise to know that Soon Seng, a friend from my school days, is also growing to be a rather active Nuffnanger. Hence, I decided to give him something nice to commemorate the occasion.
This is a starkingly obvious post about the Nuffnang Gift Ideas Contest. The both of us pakated to do this together. So go see his post and be blown away, he really is a photoshop maestro and I think he did magic with whatever video editing software he has. My jaw literally dropped.
The idea is to get a present for a fellow Nuffnanger from Realmart and then blog about it. Realmart is RealRewards’ New Online Store – where RealRewards’ members can purchase their items using their accumulated points.
We’re both of course, trying to win the prizes that are up for grabs.
So here’s my futile attempt:
On a sunny Sunday afternoon at McDonalds SS15 Drive-Thru, Jolene and Soon Seng met up for drinks to catch up on old times. Jolene was in a generous mood.
Jolene loves how Soon Seng’s face looked so excited.
Jolene suggested that since his girlfriend, Joyce, is back home in Negeri Sembilan, it’s best if she gets him a Victorinox Overnight Essentials Kit. He would need it when he goes over to visit her. It’s also quite discreet, rather than a suitcase where her parents might raise eyebrows. Then he can continue to be a good boy and just stay until quite late so that her parents can say, “Aiyah Soon Seng, just stay over lah..so late already..too late to drive back to KL.” Then he can be all, “YAYY!” and whips out his Victorinox Overnight Essentials Kit and will be all set to borrow Uncle’s pyjamas.
But then Soon Seng, as Jolene has never known him to be, was a tad materialistic. The RM135 present was too insignificant for him.
Jolene had a sudden bright idea. The PERFECT gift. A sleeping bag would be good when there’s a loving girlfriend staying miles away from you, also equally awesome when that loving girlfriend and you have a fight. (but according to Soon Seng, they barely fight.) If her house doesn’t have enough mattress for you, you can impress the parents by saying, “It’s okay lah Aunty, thanks Uncle, but I can sleep in the hall lah. No problem one. See, I got my sleeping bag!”
But it wasn’t Soon Seng’s idea of a real gift from a friend who owes him many years of presents.
But Soon Seng wanted something practical. And practicality to him is the Apple Ipod Classic 80GB in Black. He would rather listen to an endless supply of music and watch all the videos in the world than work on impressing his future in laws.
But Jolene is quite stingy by nature and gave it a second thought. She probably won’t fork out RM939 for Soon Seng since he has never given her anything before.
Jolene, as usual, had another bright idea. A Remote Controlled Robot would be such a great gift! All boys love Robots, right? Plus, this robot walks, dances, grooves, delivers karate chops(lol the website say one) and even picks up and throws objects. It’ll be very handy for Soon Seng. Might be able to help him out in his daily activities.
But perhaps he has been exposed to the possibilities that the technology in Japan can offer..hence the fussiness.
Jolene giggled at the thought of giving Soon Seng the Osim iGalLop. Everybody could do with a go on the Osim iGalLop. It helps to distress, work those hip muscles, trims the waist, work up a sweat, entice men by gyrating hips…etc.
Soon Seng will not fall for Jolene’s lame jokes.
Soon Seng’s skin is rather thick and still expects a present from Jolene after everything.
Jolene never knew that even shopping for a guy online is as bad as shopping for boys offline.
Jolene wanted to get Soon Seng something classy. She chanced upon the Burberry Brit For Men EDT Spray and thought that it’ll be perfect. Everyone loves perfume right? It’s the easiest gift to get!
However, it didn’t go as planned as Soon Seng took her suggestions to heart and made plans to bathe more that night.
Jolene knows that as a boy, Soon Seng probably loves cars. So she finally decided, “Aiyah, okaylah, just get him this.”
It was a Lamborghini! Of course Soon Seng was happy.
Soon Seng look overly grateful and probably a little bit paiseh about the extent of my gift. I’m a very giving person at times.
Jolene hopes she made it clear to Soon Seng that it’s a Bburago Lamborghini Murcielago Model Car, though.
