Secrecy binds, demands that I type this post now (Saturday night), but leave it as a draft, so that surprises have their full effect, shock their pleasantly- surprised and oh-so-very-touched-recipient! =P (who sheds a few tears, crocodile or not, in immense gratitude).
(I hope)She did!?!!
Saturday, 31st January 2009:
Today, Li Yan met up with my family and I at Plaza Rakyat/ Pudu area, to visit a quaint, yet reasonably priced music shop. ( That's where my brother and I got our guitars from).
Mission X was to get Sue Ting her long-coveted, long-awaited guitar for her belated birthday. We had been planning for quite some time, and due to immense support for this mission ( cheh wah), we could proceed with the necessary funds. (cheh wah again).
And extension of Mission X was to get my own guitar. Had been wanting an acoustic one for a long time to replace the classical one. Surrounded by two guitar experts (my brother and Li Yan), I guess today was the right day=)
The shop we visited is quite a good place to get guitars 'cause its all very reasonably priced. Prices are also bargainable. ( sorry no pictures of the shop, though). We managed to get the two guitars=), with stands, bags, straps, everything.
So here's the pictures of the guitars.
This is Susu's guitar. Sorry, haha very malas to remove the ribbon and open the bag. Lol. Its a Hofma guitar by the way, light brownish, shiny, and um-acoustic. Pretty.=)
And.. This is my very own...
Baby! And its black. =P
I named it my black beauty=)
It's brand is Hofma, not that famous compared to Yamaha or Gibson and all, but its quite good. =) I like it a lot, though its neck is wider than normal acoustics', the body frame is not so thick though it has quite a wide bottom.
Its sleek, sophisticated, and so very guitarish (my adjectives fail here).
Hope you like your guitar too, Sue Ting, sorry la couldn't get you your Yamaha=P
And now, to improve my rusty guitaring.
Ps. Jun Mei is head-over-heels, totally, and passionately in love with my guitar! Better watch out, or not she'll become the third party in our relationship. =P Oops..
