This year my sister, Nana & I planned to have a big surprise for Ayah on Father's Day. We usually have the gifts for his birthday and father's day and sometimes for Eid but this time we just wanted to have an extra special one.
We planned to have the gifts to be delivered to his office, so that all his staffs would witness this happy moment, and hopefuly he would be floating on clouds all day long :p
So on Sunday, we hit the uber awesome Bukit Bintang's shopping mall, The Pavillion.
Since Ummi also wanted to do some shopping, she browsed for new sunglasses and happily purchased a nice brown pair at Fossil.
See sign behind: Make Dad's Day - Alright that is EXACTLY what we were aiming for! =)
Next stop was to purchase something new which accomodates Ayah's passion for Golf. We checked out Reebok & Fila and saw some cool golfing stuff but nothing quite the things which would suit Ayah.
Thus we checked out Nike Golf (its name speaks for itself) and we hopped that it would be the best place to purchase something for him. Besides that I always like Nike the best when it comes to sports wear, like between Adidas and Nike I always prefer Nike for its designs. The shop assistant there if I am not mistaken his name was Iman, this one Malay guy, very very helpful. He's a former golf caddy so his explanations were very informative in directing us on what to purchase and what most likely we should not. For instance there was this one collar T-shirt we really liked, but he said the material requires very delicate care and for a man to use it many times to the field is not advisable, the T-shirt was more to be worn for style purposes.
Then after agreeing on the budget with my sister, we agreed to purchase for him something quite fancy for us students and we chose a pair of new golf shoes for him which costs us almost RM 800. It was a pair from the Tiger Woods' Platinum (or was is Titanium?) Collection and seriously many of the pairs were very attractive to us. We wanted this one design in white but it was not practical for Ayah to use it when he plays golf so we settled for the black ones of the same design. Here is the
model (the black one) we bought for him since I lost the photo on my hard disk (hehe this very small pic is the only exact one I could find on the net) :
It is the Nike Air Zoom Elite S model from the Tiger Wood's Platinum Series (whatever that represents, sounds bombastic enough for me). I did not want them to emblazzoned the huge Swoosh! Nike logo, but I wanted to have a more classy look on the shoes so that was the reason we chose this. They are made from premium full grain leather so they smell really nice (since they were not being used yet of course).
The nicest thing was when my sis and I were eyeing this one adorable silver & hot pink golf bag for women which we found very convenient to be used to class or any casual outing. The price was nearly RM 300 so might as well we forget something we did not really need. Then Iman said since we purchased the shoes he would not mind to give us 70% discount on the newly arrived bag so we only had to pay about RM 80 plus! How cool was that? :D
Tiger Woods, the magnificent golfer before he became the magnificent cheater *shaking my head*
Yup yup! So we got the gift for Ayah and a nice bag for ourselves.
Then for some accessories for the main gift, we went to Balloon Buzz, Great Eastern Mall, Jalan Ampang to have a super eye-catching Father's Day balloon for Ayah.
Of course this one was surely chosen.
How could you not be a Super Dad when you are Mr Incredible?
The balloon cost us quite a bomb as well (rare, piece of art, whatever) but since we wanted ayah's surprise to be super special we just had to pejamkan mata. Anyways when we carried the balloon to our car, we were delighted to receive smiling glances from people nearby towards us especially they meant like an approval when they came from older folks like indicating "Baik anak-anak ni." Cheeeyeah... :p
Not only that, since it was a Sunday (the next day after we purchased the shoes) when we wanted to order some flower arrangement for Ayah to be delivered to his office, the task was quite daunting since many floral shops were closed at the Subang, PJ area. Finally we spotted a dainty shop and we ordered some simple but nice flower arrangement to be put on his table. So the tasks were completed.
We requested for the florist to deliver the flower arrangement, the Nike golf shoes and of course Super Dad balloon to Ayah's office first thing on Monday morning before he enters his office. When he opened the door to his room, he was surprised and all his staffs came to him congratulating him and teasing him about the Super Dad balloon, especially because of Mr Incredible's buff body. Haha. Alhamdulillah everything went according to plan and Ayah was so so so delighted and he was ecstatic about the shoes. Well Ayah appreciates anything from us even when I gave him the CSI Bukit Aman T-Shirt for him, he straight away changed his T-Shirt in front of me indicating how much he appreciates it. Yes he had the Super Dad balloon in his office room till it became completely deflated.
So Ayah, we love you!
You are our Super Dad!
Love you love you love you~ =)
