i was sad. but i kept bringing back the topic to him so that my father know how much he break my heart for not buying me what i wanted.
after a week or so, my dad returned home with a pair of sneakers. yes, reebok sneakers. i was beyond happy and that was my favourite sneakers eversince. (hello, other kids my age didn't wear reebok sneakers, no, they don't even know what reebok is)
after years, i came to know that my sneakers was not reebok, it was rikbok. yeah, same pronounciation. that was when i know the right spelling of reebok. oh yes, the trick worked and it became a legendary joke in the family, until now.
the legendary story of branded little ira.
not with my rikbok shoesnow, whenever i go shopping, my dad would say this ;
"pegi la beli baju kat giant jer, standard awak giant jer, dulu pun pakai RIKBOK jee, stylo jugak"
sampai hatimu abah!
