Yesterday i had a disagreement with one of my cousins about giving gifts to others especially to ur mates/loved ones.
He thinks that giving gifts to the loved ones are meant to be done pure-heartedly and only for those who you will spend ur lives with. He said he doesnt gives presents to his gf before they got married because he doesnt know whether he will end up with the girl or not. I disagreed with that.
Yes, when u gv a present to a people, it has to be with good intentions but it is also one of the ways to show ur appreciation of the relationship with that person. So what if u dont know whether ur gf/bf will be the one you will spend ur lives with?? Giving gifts must be done with sincerity, bukannye kene bersebab and end up with something that is beneficial to u. And it doesnt have to be pricey, it can be something that resembles ur care or to show that the person is important to u. Like myself, i like giving gifts to my partner and my friends. Whether it's a keychain, wallet, a creative-designed-notebook and even a hand-made card, all i know is i really did it purely, sincerely for that person.
I just had to X him on the face when he said what's the point of giving gifts if he doesnt know whether he will end up marrying with the girl or not. He said it will be like pembaziran. U spent ur money for ur loved ones but u didnt end up together. I was like... "hello~ awat mundur sgt?? perlu ke nak taw dlu kalau ko kawin dgn pompuan tu ke x??" * i think u guys can imagine the looks on my face that time. And who says that u have to menatang kekasih ko tu, buying all the things that ur bf/gf ask for, giving pricey things.. Then it's ur fault la for not knowing how to spend rightly.
Our disagreement ends up when he said,"Tuhan cipta mcm2 jenis manusia, jd saye bukan dlm golongan org mcmtu". Arghh, typical phrase to end a conversation.
So in conclusion, i still x puas hati and ends up writing it here.
sorry folks =P
