Time To Pick Up The Flowers!

eBooks That May Interest You

I woke up at 10:30AM today and before getting ready, I have been online a while till 11:30AM. Later I drove all the way from Wangsa Maju to Damansara Utama (about 32 KM) to pick up the flowers I have been ordered!  When I reached there, I called up the number that was given to me yesterday night by Ellie Han’s business associate. The guy opened the door for me and hand me the flowers. I made the payment and drove to Bukit Bintang. (That was about 21KM from Damansara Utama. The total of 53KM! [32KM + 21KM] Wa lau eh… What am I doing? Siaw ah? Gila kah? Crazy meh? An idiot doing stupid thing? Travel 53KM just to pick up the flowers and do the delivery?  By this distances I can even reach Seremban liow! Only a stupid fool did this kind of thing right? I also guessed so… I am a fool that moment)

On the way many things have came to my mind.

  • What if Caroline not there today? What should I do with the flowers? Leave it there or take it back?
  • If she is there, what if she went out for lunch ? How long will I need to wait for her then? 1 hours?
  • What her reaction will be? I last met her was October 2008. Since then, many things have changed, many things have became complicated. This is also a reason why I need to think over before I ordered this flowers. It is not because of the RM 72 that I need to think about.
  • What she will say then?
  • Does she really welcome to see me?
  • Or this will be my 1st birthday present or even the last for her? I don’t know……

No matter what if want to “die” then “die” lah. I only know what will happen next after she received the flowers. Without I realised, finally I reached the car park of her working place. After parked the car, I walked to her office. What will happen next?

Flowers Order Confirmation With Ellie Han

Filed under: B'day,Caroline,Ellie Han,florist,Shakira — Tags: , , , , , — Stephen @ 8:15 pm

Finally I made up my mind to go ahead with the decision. That is to get the flowers for Caroline. Around 7:07PM I called Ellie Han to confirm my order and asked her to prepare it so that I can take it from the shop tomorrow but she cannot be reached. The connection activate her mobile phone voice box and I left her my messages.

Love YouMy message to her is “Ellie, I am Stephen. I have been at your florist shop yesterday. Now I want you to get it ready the package “Love You” The one with 12 red roses at the price of RM 60. I need you to add me a doll in that package. I will come over to collect it tomorrow. Any further questions, please call me back!

After hanged up I went through her name card and it stated there “Tuesday OFF” Damn how I going to take that flowers if the shop close on Tuesday?

7:46PM I received a call from a lady and she said she is from the florist shop. She called me about the order I have placed. Well, it is not Ellie Han but it is her business partner. She told me that they may not have the red roses at the moment as it need to order in advance. What they have now is pink roses and it may not enough to 12 roses. She asked me if I mind if she mixed with other flowers.  I said it doesn’t matter, as long it look nice. I aslo told her that I need a doll on it and then i asked if with the doll how much. She told me that it is about RM 72. I gave her the green light and before I hang up, I asked about the “Tuesday OFF” If they will closed tomorrow, how I going to take the flowers?

She gave me a guy phone number and asked me to call him when I come over the shop tomorrow. She said he will be around tomorrow. She asked me what time I will drop by. I said after 12:00PM and hanged up.

Flowers For Caroline?

Filed under: B'day,Caroline,Ellie Han,Shakira — Tags: , , , , — Stephen @ 3:00 pm

I woke up at 12:00PM and have been thinking a while, what kind of present I want to give to Caroline. Flowers? OK… If flowers then I should meet up with Ellie Han afterward. Ellie is Marketing Manager of the florist (that actually opened for business on Sunday) Experience have told me that it is not easy to find a florist that open for business on Sunday, so Ellie Han florist shop is the best choice for me.

I drove from Wangsa Maju to Damansara Utama to meet Ellie at her florist shop and told her that I want to buy some flowers but with 1 condition, that is she need to call Caroline at her office to see if she is working today or she is off. The reason I ask Ellie to call is because I don’t want Caroline to know that it is me who calling as I want to give her a surprise visit with the flowers!

I told Ellie that there is no point to buy the flowers today if Caroline is off day and she happily help me to make that call. Well…. Caroline is off today and she will be off on Monday too! She will be back to work again on Tuesday. So no surprise present for her today as I can’t deliver it to her office. Ellie suggested I deliver it to her on Tuesday. I asked Ellie (as a lady herself) what a lady will think if she receive a belated birthday present? Ellie said since Caroline is taking off from work for 2 days which mean she really go to celebrate her birthday. When she come back she will still have the happy mood and there is no reason not happy to receive any present.

Fairy GardenAs I have not yet make up my mind, I told Ellie that I will call her if I need anything. She hand me a booklet and I left the place. Anyway, I like to thank Ellie for that. A very simple call yet Ellie have gave her best service & advised.

Mooncake Mooncake

Online to check for the florist and have made 11 calls from 3pm – 4pm! Some have no answer, some not open on Sunday. There is one florist in Starhill that open on Sunday and when I checked the price, my goodness… so expensive! 1 single rose cost RM 150? Roses for RM 250? What kind of rose is that?  Wink The sale personal said it is imported.  Of course I knew it is imported but does it need to be cost so much? Today what day wor… just Sunday and not even a Valentine day. Correct me if I am wrong, single rose on Valentine day may cost from RM 12 to RM 80. This also depend at what places you buy it. And this RM 150 for 1 rose definitely out of my budget!

I even called one of my web friend (Camelia) that actually have a lot of business contact to enquire if she knew any florists that open for business on Sunday.  She asked me why not order from online florist and have it delivered? She said Blooming do it. Of course I knew Blooming delivered flowers for 7 days a week and it is one of the famous online florist in Malaysia but I said I want to deliver it myself mah…. more personal and intimate touch…. even more romantic mah…. and sincere also, don’t you think so?

If need to deliver on my own then “susah” (difficult) loh because today is Sunday and most florists does not open for business except the online Florists Portal. She said she can’t help me. Anyway, thanks for your help Camelia Smile

I almost give up trying when I stumble upon a florist that actually open for business on Sunday. With the contact number displayed on the website I called them up. It is located at Damansara Utama.  I inquired the  price of single rose. It just RM 3.50! See? Do it necessary to pay up to RM 150 per rose like the one in Starhill? Nope… I don’t think so.  If I want to spent RM 150 for the single rose I rather buy it from here Wink

I told the Marketing Manager (Ellie Han) that my budget is around RM 20 and asked her what can I get. She said 3 roses, some other  violet  flowers and some little  white flowers wrapped together in  a unique design but she don’t  know if I like the colour of the roses as they don’t have any red roses at the moment. Since it is quite difficult to visualize what she have told me from the phone I said why not I dropped by her place then only see how.

After bath, on 5:10PM I drove all the way from Wangsa Maju to Damansara Utama just to get these roses….! Me romantic, right? Hmm… Does Caroline ever know about this?  Well… If she read this she will know…. Wink

I reached there around 5:30PM. It was drizzling then. The moment I walked in, I saw the Marketing Manager have almost finished with her personal touch… Wah! So good service ah… I have not yet decide on the flowers…. she almost finished wrapped it up. Well…. anyhow I sure like it! She the one who have saved my day…. If I did not found her…. wonder where to get the flowers for Caroline?

When Ellie saw me she told me that RM 20 (minus the 2 bears) is not enough. The one she have wrapped  up cost around RM 30. Since I need the roses today…. I said OK loh! As I looked around her shop, I noticed that if putting up a doll on it then it should look more nicer. I asked her how much does it cost if I want to add up a pair (boy and girl bears) she said RM 55. Since this is the first time I gave flowers to Caroline…. without thinking much I agreed loh!

RosesAfter paying her, I took the roses to the car and have some photos taken. This is her (Ellie) final touch! Do you like it? Will Caroline like it? This have to see when she received it. Smile

Then I drove from Damansara Utama to Bukit Bintang. If calculate the mileages… (From Wangsa Maju to Damansara Utama and then to Bukit Bintang) I think it is about 30 ++ kilometers! Wow! Never in my life I have done this. Drove a distance just to get some flowers for a special lady on a special date 240808.

I reached  there around 6:00PM, parked my car in the carpark and took the final pictures A460before looking for her.
