Princess and I have this thing about presents. We've always agreed that we don't need an occasion to buy presents for each other. Be it Christmas, Anniversary or anything like that. We just decided that whenever we see something that we think the other person would like, we buy it there and then. It can be any time of the year. So we don't expect Christmas or Anniversary presents from each other. Except for Birthdays though. We still expect birthday presents haha!
So I'm not sure if I should call this a Christmas present because it isn't exactly one. What I can call it though is my "Best Present of 2009". All it was... a photo album with the pictures of Wombeh & Domokun.
Oh Princess and I refer to each other now as Wombeh & Domokun. Me being Wombeh (which comes from the word wombat because when she saw a wombat in Australia she thought it was cute). I on the other hand refer to her as Domokun because she sometimes goes "RARARA!!!". I'm sure the names we call each other will change in the next 3 months so don't get too used to it.
Okay back to the album Princess gave me.
In case you're wondering, the 10th of October 2008 is the estimated date that we got together as a couple. The exact date is still a mystery for us because I didn't exactly ask "Will you be my girlfriend?". We just... somehow started treating each other like bf/gf and I guess one day we both understood that we were in a relationship.
The great thing about photo albums with pictures in them is that they never grow old. I will never get bored of receiving photo albums with pictures in them because I think it takes a lot of effort to hand pick each picture. Besides, when someone gives you a photo album with pictures.. you're not just getting a "photo album with pictures". You're getting a whole condensed book of memories you've had with that someone.
That makes photo albums such great gifts! I'm sure some of you guys out there have done it at least once before for your other half. If you haven't then do it! I think it makes a great gift.
Princess' photo album was a page by page story of us. The story of "Wombeh & Domokun". She put in each picture and some captions on which period of our relationship was that picture taken.
With Princess' permission, I'm going to share a few of them with you guys. Notice the captions she wrote on each page.
This is the first picture.
This is us at the Nuffnang V-Post party in Singapore a year ago.
Yep... this picture was taken at the start of my Paul Frank craze. I now have like an entire wardrobe of Paul Frank t-shirts.
I LOVE GROCERY SHOPPING!
If you're wondering why "Sebastian babeh". It's because I turn red when I drink and that picture was taken after I've had a little too much to drink.
Ah yes it's true. We used to be so much more happening as a couple. Going out and all. Now all we (yes we.. not just me but Princess too) wanna do is stay at home and watch DVDs.
Yah Princess said she looked tall in this picture. With long model-like legs. So she loves this pic.
And the surprise or not so surprise birthday party she planned for me this year. It was a total failure of a surprise but I'm happy she tried.
You gotta share some of the love... but you also gotta keep some for yourself right?
