Are you a flower person?

Blame it on the culture that we practice, the prices of flowers and the profit hungry traders that tries to make their retirement fund during Valentines.

How often do you buy/receive flowers?

Is it me or do you get people shaking their head when you approach the florist to buy a nice bunch of flowers and whispering starting almost immediately as you walk past them with the nice rosy petals shining with their glorious colours.

Even back in University days, visiting the florist was a chore. The time you go out to buy the flowers, the path you take and the entrance to take when you walk back to your room. Almost immediate gossip will flow like the river if you are sighted with bouquet of flowers.

Back in Malaysia? the sight of a decent florist is rare and the fact that flowers are being bought only for certain occasion makes you look like an alien in the crowd carrying around flowers.

Or is it just the ego in me to buy flowers for your loved one? The macho man inside me carrying sissy looking flowers walking around the shopping mall? Or that i rather buy not one but several bowls of wanton mee or bak kut teh instead of seeing the petals whitter away after a few days?

I wonder and I ponder.

The Man who told me where to get this flowers for RM16 and the flowers of course.

Wishing you an early Monday blues. Damn the internet, when are my pictures going to load?

Precious Pea said...

Ahem....nowadays Hubby doesn't pamper me with flower bouquets from the florist anymore. He plants them for me! Hehehe..i have got more addition to my garden since you last visit. :)

My hubby buys lilies every week. (He's been doing it for the past 5 years) I'm very sure he's not shy about it. It's all in the mind, ler. If they bring joy (and thereby ensure that Mondays are not so drab), why not, hor?

Live2Talk said...

You can just order online and deliver to her office/doorstep. Joe, every girl likes flowers ... show her your romantic side :) And have a great sex after that!

New Kid on the Blog said...

do you consider a person like to receive flowers but yet very bad and poor in planting flowers a flower person????

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

new kid: y not? one does not need to know how to cook to eat good food rite?

live2talk: hmmm online flowers expensive mah..and wats with great sex after flowers? thats a first!

simon: wahahaha...yes kambing famos..put liao..

SuLee said...

there's this dilemma deep inside me, maybe is because of my mom influence - she strictly prohibited us to buy her fresh flowers for any occasion coz is waste of money!

but when she received a big bunch of flowers from her *ahem* admirers, i could tell she's happy.

anyway i think i will prefer my hubby to give me a massage than a bouquet, mind you they do cheer me up, seeing lotsa beautiful roses slowly die a week after my wedding was really sad...:(

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

sulee: but then again, like u say when u c flowers, u forget that they die..n enjoy the beauty..
