This Man’s Declaration of Love

This actually appeared in the news a few days back… I kept wanting to blog about it but kept forgetting, so here goes…

Hubby declares love with ads

For those of you who are too lazy to click on the link :p this is a story about a businessman who took full page ads with major newspapers in Malaysia to declare his love for his wife on their 35th year anniversary!

Ain’t that so sweet???

When asked by the journalist why he decided to buy ads in the newspapers (Full Page Full Colour ads aren’t cheap), this was his reaction…

Chan admitted that he could have bought jewellery or taken his wife on a shopping spree abroad but he said
giving material goods would not have the same impact.  “When you have a wife who is willing to go through good and bad times with you, you have to give her something out of the ordinary,” said the managing director of Kamco Aluminium Sdn Bhd.

Aww….

To see how his ad looks like, check it out at Angel’s blog. Hi Angel, I hope you don’t mind me linking you! 🙂

Post Note: Realised that I should not have titled this post ‘How deep is your love?’ Just that when I was writing this post, the song came into my head… and I thought it is a cute title. Everybody has a different way of showing their love, and as long as it is appreciated by the person whom they are showing their love to. 🙂 There’s no superior or inferior way. 🙂

  1. Hi Violet, i cant click on ur first link…

    btw, he is really romantic..but this cant be done by people who cant afford it…simple acts of love daily still counts like planting a kiss on their love ones’ cheeks…>.

  2. Hi Jhong Ren-
    Yup… I agree with you…! The little things definitely count! 🙂 And full page ads are like SUPER expensive. Guess since he’s quite a successful businessman, he can afford it. And I think not many rich people would do this even though they have the money. So it’s a really wonderful gesture on his part to show his appreciation for his wife. 🙂

    Well, gotta admit its kinda sweet but for me..without all those commotion..with just a little personal touch every now and then, just acknowledge by the one in love is sufficient coz.. loves only have to be declared n shown to the one u loves n not to the world 🙂

  8. Hello notfearingchange-
    Thanks for dropping by! 🙂 And thanks for your comment. Hope to see you around more.

    Jean-
    Hi! Welcome, welcome! Wow! 🙂 Your hubby is fantastic really! 🙂 Thanks for sharing that tip with all of us… So hubbies out there… you know how to score extra points! 😉

    Jhong Ren-
    Thanks for making this post fast becoming one of the hottest posts! 🙂

    Well, I guess different strokes work for different folks.

    Personally, I don’t see it as he’s showing off. I see that he is showing appreciation for his wife who has toiled beside him for the last 35 years. He is quite a well-known businessman in Malaysia. Perhaps he just wanted to acknowledge her as people might not have known the woman behind this successful man.

    Or just like how a breakfast would bring a smile to his wife’s face. Perhaps he did as he think that this might bring a smile to her face when she opens the newspapers.

    And who knows? Maybe he makes her breakfast too? 😉

    I think there are many perspectives we can choose to see his gesture, and these are my personal opinions and the perspectives that I chose. 🙂

    Carol-
    Welcome back! 🙂 Appreciate your comment. 🙂 Take care! 🙂
