Here come’s June and this means
my birthday’s coming soon, hooray! exam period rules student life. I should also mention that winter has arrived and it’s getting chillier day by day. Speaking of winter, I have this one and only puffer jacket with me for almost over 5 years. It’s still in good condition but I thought I ought to get a new jacket in case this one needs a good washing. I was also thinking of getting a back up jacket for my sister since she also has 1 puffer jacket with her. Luckily, Queen’s birthday is on Monday which means most stores will have their merchandise discounted. Coincidentally, Mr. Honest was eyeing on a hiking/traveling bag and a jacket. So he asked me to go with him to Kathmandu since they were having a 40% sale.
Spent a good 1 1/2 hours in there picking a nice down jacket before moving to the bag section, the part where Mr. Honest’s got over-excited. He was having a hard time deciding between the 55L and 22L bag, so I quietly browse through other bags trying to not disturb him. Then he pointed out one bag to me which I immediately fell in love with. *why oh why did my feminine side came out at that moment* And yes, I was also having a hard time deciding. Towards the end, we both decided to sleep on it that night and return with a fresh decision the next day.
Came back the day after and I’ve decided to get the jacket whereas Mr. Honest decided to get the 55L bag. Headed straight to the bag section only to realize the bag I like wasn’t there anymore. Hence, I convinced myself that God was telling me that I made the right decision, though it was a little bittersweet because I quite fancied the bag. Went to the counter and paid for my jacket. After that I went over to Mr. Honest’s counter because he looked like he had a lot to arrange. Suddenly, the girl in charge at the counter handed him another bag which I thought was too small to fit his big 55L bag. Then he took it and turned to me, handed me the bag which I then realized, in it was the bag I wanted, then he said with a smile, “It’s a bit early but Happy Birthday”.
I was just overwhelmed with emotions and left speechless, almost to tears at the counter. Usually I could guess what others are planning but this was just a complete surprise. I was totally off guard. Didn’t even know he knew when my birthday was. The only thing I remembered blurting out from my mouth was “Oh my gosh?! When did you?… You really shouldn’t have.. Thank you.. Oh my gosh?!”
So that was what happened today. Left me speechless the whole day but I was really touched. Guess I’m just gonna hug the bag to sleep tonight and try not to get saliva on it.
The best things always happen unexpectedly
