    i'm asian too, that's why i'm not surprise
    i knew most of the asian superstitious girl wants something other can't have, something expensive and first hand, and they love to compare among friends, see who got the rich bf and willing to buy them gifts, and they think it's nothing wrong with it.

    I am Asian too but ithink thats totally wrong, sorry aalphaboi, but yea I think you need a new gf, she should be wise enough to realize she's lucky to have you buying stuff for her...

    Buy her a lolly and tell her its the thought that counts.

    Quickest way to get dumped. And the the word goes out that I'm a cheap boyfriend and there goes any chance of getting another date for a long time. HK is a small place...

    yeah, then you probably find women who loves bags/gift more than love you for who you are

    Maybe you need to expand your horizons. Over here in the states, we actually date and marry guys who treat us well emotionally, not financially. Don't get me wrong, money is nice, but it isn't the end all, be all. I fell for my husband before he made his money and we worked together to accomplish what we have.

    Cool Re: Advice needed for gift for girlfriend


    No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Come on, now!
    The thing about el "cheapo" Speedy? And the Birkin? Are you f-ing kidding me? Come on! "You know what I need...I don't have time to do the research...you must not love me!" -- WTF? "She's a special girl and deserves only the best..." You're joking, right? :dry: You'd have to be. I'd say she's special alright--especially something. And that thing about flying to Hawaii or Japan or wherever to get a bag worthy of her? Dude, you'd have to build a rocket and fly at Warp 6 to another galaxy to satisfy that one. :roflmao:

    Disclaimer for the faint at heart: I mean not disrespect to existing human beings who are not fragments of our imagination :001_rolleyes: Really, no offense...but, COME ON! You can't post something like this and expect me not to have a good laugh! :stuart:

    this1chick: I hear you girlfriend. Maybe I'm way off, or maybe I'm an alien from an even farther galaxy. It wouldn't be the first time this theory is explored...

    Maybe this is why the divorce rate is so high.

    Maveyblue--in Hong Kong, what's important is face. The worst sin here is to be poor....So for me, it would be a loss of face for me amongst my friends if my girlfriend didn't have 2ct diamond solitaire earrings and a birkin or a goyard.

    If she didn't, that would indicate I'm not successful in my choice of career and that I'm not worthy of an attractive woman. Other than this normal banking crises, most attractive women here have monthly shopping allowances and apartments paid for by guys vying for their attentions--i met a woman last week that gets 15K US$ shopping allowance/month + a suite @ the four seasons from her boyfriend.

    So many of my guy friends here are told by their wives/girlfriends that they need to make more money otherwise the wife's family will disown her beacuse they would look "poor" or rather "poorer" than their parents' friends' kids. (did that make sense?)

    What?! A Watercolor Galliera--unique in this planet--complete with charms and scarves?
    I knew it! You don't love me!
    :tomato:



    Sorry, but I can't get over this. I suspected it's like this with some people, just seeing how some women get super expensive bags as gifts, one after another, it always baffles me. So is that how one gets jewelry and bags from a guy? Adopting that kind of attitude? I need training--I mean it!

    Gizmo, i think its the environment not you.

    Like we were out for brunch one weekend and I just got her a pair of 2ct diamond solitaires.

    One of her friends at the table said to me "I'm sorry, I see that business isn't going so well. I guess that's why you can only afford those 'inexpensive stones, what is that a VVS1? My boyfriend is bidding on the Star of Lesotho for me next week at Christie's"

    So now I get embarassed by her friend in front of my business contacts and they question the durability of my business. Get it?

    i think no matter what business or industry you are in, no one should be that rude. My DH works in the financial industry and deals with a lot of rich businessmen but their wives aren't anything like that....

    But I get where you're coming from.... and we respect that... we're just voicing out what we think, and IMO, women like that are not worthy of what they actually get.

    juicyholicmum--thanks for the gracious reply.

    All--we've deviated a lot--I"m just trying to figure out what's the new "in" bag for fall/winter. I was looking at the LV Wish or Whisper in Suede monogram but I'm worried it would be heavy and high maintenance: i.e. what if she puts it in a puddle on a bar table or something would it stain?

    What does GM mean? What about PM? I'm going to suspect grand vs petit, but M? Mallet? Marroquinerie?

    Thanks so much for the comments!
