Because I have a relative who is moving house recently, so I bought a water heater for her as a house warming gift. After giving the gift to her, she asked is the brand from China or Malaysia, she said China or Malaysia water heater are not reliable and she prefer brands from US or Japan or Europe. She said China or Malaysia water heaters may have electric shock if the product is not reliable. She asked for the receipt from me and said maybe she will top up a bit to get a better product so I gave her the receipt.
Inside my heart I was thinking, "Why she like that one? What I bought for her also not bad wah, even though it may not be the most expensive one." It is the thought that counts.
How would you feel if you were me? Sometimes it is not easy getting gifts for people as in the end they may not like what you give them. I feel a little bit hurt because it seems she doesn't appreciate what I give her and even doubt the product. But on the other hand I console myself that maybe if she top up a bit and get a better product also good for her.
In the end, I conclude it is not easy to be a good person "hao ren nan zuo" is what I thought of.
By the way, the water heater I bought for her is a product of Singapore.
