My mom’s 60th birthday present

Okay la.. I know I’m supposed to post this today (as in 19th January), but it has been a very busy day for me and by the time I reached home, it’s already tomorrow, or today. Erm.. nvm. … any~~~~~way… I haven’t sleep yet so it’s still counted as tomorrow in yesterday term. Or today for yesterday. Or tomorrow for today…

Ugh…

So yes, the present I bought for my mom on her 60th birthday. My brother and dad chipped in too, but mostly by my brother and me.

I I I I I I I …. *deep breath*……

Bought a bouquet for my mom!!!

money bouquet


You then will surely say “CHEH~~~!!! Flower only is it!!!!!”

Wait wait.. this is not a normal bouquet of flower. No!!! It’s far from that!!!

See how I chose the ribbons’ colour to be red and silver. Just like Chinese New Year!!!

“Tong tong ciang”


Not only that… it’s decorated with small cute little pixie flowers (I don’t know what to call these, so I just called them pixies cause they are so small) with a hint of violet.

See how cute? Pretty right?

When I say this ain’t you ordinary bouquet, I meant this is NO ordinary bouquet.

Beautiful isn’t it? It’s HUGE too!!

Oh but what’s this?

RM10s flower


YEP!!! You guessed it!! It’s made of RM10 notes!!

And RM5 notes.

RM 5 & 10 flowers


It’s a bouquet that literally worths hundreds!! (can go by the thousand, next time I want to try RM100 notes)

Timeless present, here you go. It will never wither, never run out of fashion, never depreciates (maybe will due to inflation) and it’s even environmental friendly, you can RECYCLE it!!!

Lack of money, o.. just pluck out a stalk of flower.

The only problem is, don’t walk around on the street alone with this bouquet. Flowers have never been more attractive.

  32. Guess in a month's time all the guys out there r gonna be broke for Valentines... Muahaha...

    ReplyDelete
  33. I guess alot of people will disagree with me...but i think it's a horrid idea...

    real flowers are so much more beautiful...if i get this...i pull it apart and use the money immediately....no offense but asthetically...it isn't pleasing to me...

    but then...everyone's different...

    i gave something to my mum too...on her birthday...it's a wonderful feeling to be giving back to mum no?
