This CNY, my parents went overseas enjoying a couple date honeymoon with my uncle and his wife.
Thus, Mr Khoo got me to join his family for visiting.
And on Valentine’s Day Eve, he told me many times… “Sorry, this year I really did not buy flowers for you..”
That’s so familiar but could be true. Because I was selling valentine flower & will be weird if he were to get bouquets from other florist.
And my reply to him was, “Its ok! I’m selling valentine flowers this year. Already surrounded by lots of bouquet took pictures with couple of bouquets..so its really ok.”
However, Mr Khoo did have a surprise bouquet for me this year!
Its been so long since I receive a bouquet! Whats more endearing about the bouquet was him excitedly sharing his Planned Surprise for me!
“1 week ago, he rang up Mrs Ho discreetly. Kept asking if I’m beside her as though we quarrelled. He sounded very secretive & then he said, he wants to buy flower! Mrs Ho told me, Mr Khoo was very excited about buying the flowers.. lolx
In the evening, Mrs Ho discussed with me about quoting her cousin’s bouquet of 9 white & pink roses…leaving no trace of hints, I was fully taken in believing Mrs Ho’s cousin order.
The day after Mr Khoo made an order, Mr Ho secretly bought for Mrs Ho, 12 Pink Roses. Excitedly told Mr Khoo about it & he thought in his head,”Willip also using this method..” lol
For that 1 week, Mrs Ho & I were professional actresses concealing the beautiful surprise from each other.
Until the day itself, all rose bouquets arrived Mrs Ho place. Mr Ho picked the 12 Pink Rose bouquet, laid on her bed. And she realised her darling has bought roses for her this valentine!
As for me, Mr Khoo took the trouble to send me home. I needed to pack my barang barang & collect some roses at Mrs Ho place for delivery. While I was home, Mr Khoo quickly drove to her place to collect & he wrote on the gift tag,
To: My one & only love
From: The Man who rise above all
I love you!
After he left, I went over to Mrs Ho place not knowing Mr Khoo went earlier. haha.. And it was after delivery.. he picked me up to join his family for Reunion Dinner. I got into his car & he took a bouquet from behind AGAIN!”
Its been so long since I received bouquet from Mr Khoo. He says, “I will buy roses for you on valentine’s day!”
And he did encouraged a few friends of his who said, “My girlfriend says she doesn’t like flowers..” Mr Khoo replied, “Imagine you bring your girlfriend out for dinner, every other table has a bouquet and your girlfriend don’t have. Sure she will feel something.”
True true. I’m not a flower person myself but that feeling is pretty uncomfortable & fortunately, Mr Khoo is senstive enough to protect me from all these scenarios.
