Shock Me Do!

What is the weirdest birthday gift (any gift) that you ever received?

Here's my answer:


drum roll...drrrr...drrrr...drrrrrrrrrrr....drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

An eggplant
.


Yes I received a humungous eggplant on my b'day (don't even go there!) , from one of my mum's friends who had just come to Aus from Fiji. In their culture it's apparently customary to give veges as gifts. When she gave it to me on my b'day (wrapped in paper), I didn't even know what to say man. There I was in my red b'day dress n stilettos, all dressed up for a boogie night with friends and family, holding an eggplant ofcourse! In my head I was like WHY ME and I even thought she must have mistaken my bday for the annual vege exhibition?? But nah, she was sane and yes I took it, thanked her for it and laughed my toes off the next day. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the thought, but sometimes some gifts just make you wanna crack up. There are other wierd gifts I have received but it can't get any weirder than this can it? Can you see the horror on my face? Now whisper to me your's.

Can't say I've received a gift as weird as that one. A lot of useless ones but not weird.

when was it your birthday???

Deepak Gopi said...

I dont usually get any birtday presents. :(:(:( Except e -greetings.

jasi said...

Happy birthday to you. I have heard that eggplants symbolizes virility

Jac said...

I have only one whisper...won't you show me your eyebrows ?

May be I am bit senile, you know the age factor:))

Silvara said...

heheh - i'm still loving all ur photos - ur too sexy P

the weirdest gift i have gotten was for my 21st - a ceramic dog in a basket - as in the whole thing was ceramic! It had these leather straps to hang it up somewhere and I have no idea what hell I was mean to do with it...

And guess who gave it to me...my best friend!!

I'm still confused even to this day lol

Margie said...

Oh, you have a bday coming up soon.
I'll be sure not to give you an eggplant....LOL!
Now that is a strange bday gift.

Mine is just as weird as yours Keshi....it was a loaf of bread.

I had an Italian boyfriend once, and he made wonderful bread, and gave me a loaf of it on my 21st bday....
So, what do you think about that?

I'm up late tonight....
trying to catch up on some emails.
But, I've got to get to bed now, as it's almost 1:30 AM.

Nitey nite.
HUGGGGGGZ!

Margie

taqdeer said...

hehehe, now that is not an usual gift :)

I have never recieved vegetables, ceramic dogs or a bread - lol.

I do love giving people interesting things though. Something that I know they would like or something that everyone will find 'cool'. :)

hhmmm, i think for you it'l be a disco-mirror-cuckoo-clock :D One where the little bird that comes out will have bellbottoms on :P

Peter said...

Got a lot useless things of course, but never anything as weird. But as you say, in some countries this may not be considered as weird and the gesture counts more than the gift.

What did you do with the eggplant? There are some very nice dishes / recepies.

vishesh said...

i am back had been on a holiday...

hmm....weirdest gift i got.....learnt that i had failed in a maths test on the eve of my last b'day....that shook me!!!

Trinnie said...

i don't think I've ever received weird bday gifts! speaking of that, was it ur birthday? Belated Happy Birthday then! :D

though I've heard that once one of my teachers went to Germany (her husband's frend's family invited her and the family) and one of them Germans was celebrating his bday. u know what he got from his family? fruits-pineapple and maybe some mangoes and maybe some veges-brinjal i think! i was listening to this mouth agape and my teacher told me apparently such fruits are a privilege there (mango of course)!
lol!

PS: sorry about that link in the mail not working. had i known i wudve left u a comment here asap!
tc!

DJ said...

well it is one heck of a gift...
LOL...

just make the best out of what you've got... try cooking eggplant parmesan :) it is really delicious...

am unfortunate to receive any presents any time... and as a matter of coincidence this is reflected on my newest post... :)

tc...

and yeah, about your idea of stopping to blog...
neah... ppl can't frighten me enough so as to leave something that is entirely my own... :)
so just gather the courage and whack the sword... whoever dies, don't bother... :)

m bottled right now, but i'll come out of it soon... am sure of it...
and i wish u all the luck for the same... :)

SaffronSaris said...

I thot this was so original!
I wont mind getting an eggplant though, at least I can eat it. ;p

Aditi said...

hmm come to think of no one has really surprised me on my bday.. most of the gifts are predictable or pleasant surprises...nothing wierd

lemonade said...

Its ur birthday...??!
Well if it is..HAPPY BIRTHDAY KESH...!!!!!

when I was about 5..i went for my cousins (think she was about 14) party where a friend had given her an empty note book..I thought the whole idea of giving someone a notebook on their birthday was absolutely ridiculous..but i guess i understand now...lol

Justine said...

how funny! I might do that to my husband this year as a joke (I'll have to have a 'real' present as well or I don't think he'll spoeak to me!)

I got a cassette tape of this weird band called The Doors as a child. I thought that was weird at the time... until it turned out to be one of my all time favourite albums :)

Asha said...

Got an Eggplant?! Hehehehe!!!!That was funniest thing I have ever heard!I can imagine you dancing with macho Brinjal man!;D
I don't think I have ever received any weird one.Send the Eggplant to Deepak who never received any presents!!:D

tulipspeaks said...

hahahaha..

:P

Helen said...

Did we miss your birthday? I haven't received birthday gifts from anyone but my hubby for about 12 years. but he did give me a machete this year, that's kind of weird.

the_ego_has_landed said...

hey happy belated birthday wishes!! hugs!! hope u had a ball :)

Yeah I know eggplant is weird.. hahah

Pranay said...

Can't think of anything that weird....but yes I can imagine the look on your face.

CapCity said...

i've been seeing your beautiful flower around the blog-o-sphere and i'm finally making my way to visit your "neck of the woods".

Wow, i don't have such an international set of friends that they bring their customary gifts to me. as menchie i've recieved my share of useless gifts & one of my sisters ticked me off by LOANING me a birthday gift. It was a book I'd been wanting & I was excited until I read the post-it she'd attached: please return this when you finish reading it. I almost FLUNG the book back at her. GRRRRRRRRR! :-)
great intro. to your world. i shall return!

Jay said...

My grandmother gave me underwear and socks for a birthday once. That's about as weird as it ever gets cause i usually don't bother with birthdays and I usually get Amazon.com gift certificates from family.

niki sato said...

hahaha!!!thats sooo funny :D
happy pre-b'day keshichan!!

my weirdest b'day gift was a big bouquet of red roses that were not for me lol
one oversea fren asked me to deliver it to his crush.
i didnt even know her but he sent me US$100 and asked me to do so.
coincidence was that her b'day was same with my b'day. *tear*

priya said...

Keshi: You with an eggplant, just can't imagine girl.
Never had weird presents. When is ur birthday?

Little Miss Muffet said...

oohh...nothing exciting to share from my end :( but ur gift was really weird :D as long as it was meant well, it's fine i guess..

starry nights said...

Keshi I have heard of many wired birthday gifts but your gift is unique.never heard of people getting veggies as a gift.did she make this one up? I ususally don't get too many birthday gifts and so I cannot wisper one to you.Did you cook that eggplant up.

KK said...

I dont remember getting any B'day gift until now in my life :) isnt that itself wierd? :)

KK said...

Well forgot to wish.. belated Happy B'day! :)

anuj said...

aah ..dnt really remember .. mst have been whn i was a kid .. n these I am not much of a gift person :D .. n dnt get much either ..


Newyz .. whn was/is your bday ??

anuj

The Old Mule said...

well first off: felicidades!!!

And second - think of it this way - this is a gift that will not be forgotten. In a way, this might be the best one ever! Longing back in later years you might muse: remember the time that woman gave me and, um, eggplant!

I hope you had a fine night of party.

Mumbai Guy said...

okay, all aside, just wanted to say,

That pic up there on this post is your best pic to date. IMHO.

Keshi said...

Menchie hey tnxx!

-----------------------------------

Taqdeer ty!

Keshi.

chocolteluva said...

hahha.. well atleast feel honored that she gave u you a vege because its tradition in figi..

hehehe...

SaffronSaris said...

hiya poppy doll-pearl, did u manage to load the advertisement? Guess what? I saw something similiar to the product on Tree's latest entry. It's as if my mind is pre-programmed to see roundish objects as Moving Rubber . Ha!

Margie said...

Keshi
Just checking on you today...
How are you doing?
It's been a busy day for me....kids, puppies and ballgames.

You are so right about the bread being a special gift, and it was the best bread I have ever had.
He had his own bakery, and could bake anything.
And Giovanni( such a good Italian name he had) taught me to make bread.

Well, we are taking a walk with Jake now....enjoy your day, and I'll enjoy my evening.

Yes, I remembered when your birthday is....of course!

MWAHHHHHHH!

Margie

Jewel Rays said...

Keshi said...

G'day Amy!

Keshi.

Trundling Grunt said...

Could be worse - could have been a Japanese eggplant which has a more, um, phallic appearance.

Weird I don't know, but the worst I ever got was a clothes brush.

Keshi said...

hey Trundz ;-)

**Phallic

LOL okkkk! I didnt wanna think that way but now Im forced to.


**but the worst I ever got was a clothes brush.

not bad at all. Cos I had to buy my own n that feels stupid.


----------------------------------

Jim just cos ur bored that doesnt give u the right to abuse me.



Keshi.

Helen said...

Hey Keshi, actually it was a gift I requested. A gal needs some serious knife-wielding in the jungles of Latin America and the Caribbean! ; ) I know, I know not totally girlie, but I treated myself to some adorable new black heels with cream stitching and kitten heels, much better and more girlie? :D

Keshi said...

Anony u cant have fun at the expense of others.

And its not only u who's gonna die. Young or old, Death is inevitable to each n everyone of us.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

lol Helen in that case it's appropriate.

**but I treated myself to some adorable new black heels with cream stitching and kitten heels,

OMG I sooo want em!! Any pics?


Keshi.

jitendra said...

weirdest thing that ever happened to me on my bday was i actually *forgot* that it was my bday and recalled only when someone wished me :D

Keshi said...

Jit thats sooo funny LOL!

diyadear said...

hey is it ur birthady???:O
my weirdest gift or ather it was the naughtiest n funniest was a pervert birthday card mentioning the blunder of ,y lifetime on it.. it was from a sweet friend.. but it was a strange one n a bit weird too.. :D

Margie said...

We are back from our walk.
Gave Jake that cuddle from you.
He sure loves to be cuddled!
I'm sorry you could see the picture I sent to you...strange....that's happened twice now....wonder why it is.

Gosh Keshi, you sound so mad.
Is there anyone around to make you laugh?

A laugh is just like sunshine.
It freshens all the day.
It tips the peak of life with light
and drives the clouds away.
The soul grows glad that hears it
and feels its courage strong.
A laugh is just like sunshine
for cheering us along.

A laugh is just like music.
It lingers in the heart
and where its melody is heard
the ills of life impart.....
and happy thoughts come crowding
its joyful notes to greet...
A laugh is just like music
for making living sweet!


When I am mad or upset, if I can laugh, it does help some.

Maybe it's just wishful thinking in this case.
Anyway......

HUGGGGGGGGZ!

Margie:):):)
P.S it's still early here... just 9 PM, but I'm off to bed.
Kind of beat....nitey nite!

Keshi said...

Charles ty!

Some ppl have nothing better to do than trying to correct the world when they r the ones who desperatley need HELP.

Im in the process of blocking such ppl from my blog. And I'll report em to the authorities..with their IPs and the rest. TY for ur help mate.

-----------------------------------

Diya thats a great sassy gif ha ;-)

Nah its not my bday yet...woohoo keep guessing LOL!


-----------------------------------

Margie ty n u did make me smile :) HUGGGGGGGGGGZ! U truly care abt me and Im glad to have u in my life.


**Is there anyone around to make you laugh?

Some ppl dun wanna see the smile on another's face. They get so jealous and envious that they wake up with 'vengeance' on their mind. They choose to ruin a happy person's morning by blurting out their hatred-filled hearts. How sad this world is. Why r so many ppl unhappy that they wanna make the happy ppl unhappy too?

Its a lost world.

But Im glad that God has blessed me with few treasures like u. TY Margie!



Keshi.

RamaG said...

You have a birthday comin soon. Thats cool!

Honestly, I've received fewer gifts than I've given. :-))

One gift which I gave to a college friend on her birthday was a roll of white paper about 5 feet long which had the words - "Have a fanta-fabulous birthday" printed on it.

Couple of years back when a very dear friend was getting married, 10 of us each contributed Rs. 8000 and gave him a gift of Rs 80000 as a marriage gift.

-ram.

Keshi said...

Anony give up...cos u will be in big trouble soon. Ur details r with me and u hv been reported to the authorities.

God didnt bless u with a brain in this life, but He will send u some hand-cuffs soon. Have fun!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Rama heyy!

**was a roll of white paper about 5 feet long which had the words - "Have a fanta-fabulous birthday"

thats neat :)


Keshi.

Margie said...

Before I go to bed, I just had to come back to see if I made you smile.....
Awwwwww, I'm so glad I did
Now, I'm smiling too!
Nothing in this world like adding a litle joy to those we care about.
And, I do care about you very much, just like I know you care about me.
Now, keep smiling your beautiful smile....ok.

In friendship we find nothing false or insincere,
everything is straightforward, and springs from the heart.

-Cicero


HUGGGGGGGGZ!
Good night Keshi...
the sandman awaits me....

Margie

Ekta said...

Shionge said...

Yes indeed weird to receive an eggplant :)

So far no surprises as such on my birthday though Keshi :)

Irene said...

Someone gave me on my birthday something that I gave her on her birthday. Imagine that!

But an eggplant still takes the cake. ;p

Iceman said...

when's ur b'day?

Well, talkin bot strange b'day gifts, how bot an odd pair of shoes?!?!

And as for me... I remember in grade school, once I refused to cut my hair, it had grown pretty long! So Poo & my kid sis together gave me a lousy hair-cut when I was asleep, as a b'day gift!

Andrew The Asshole said...

That was a pretty bad gift, but lets get back to that red dress and high heels... LOL

I was trying to decide between two post masturbation or eating pussy, which do you vote for?

shammu said...

Eggplant??!!
hehehe!!!
the most weird I got was for my b'day last year..It was our college Annualfest, and this 'cool and loving' friends of mine, gave methis huge box, right there in that auditorium, and the same time they even dedicated a songg, and so , you know, the whole light was on me!!! and when I opened it, Guess what it was???!!! a brooom :D!!!! yeahh!!seriously!!! I was soooooooooooooooooooooo.... shocked, esp since the whole college was there :D!! but it was funnnnnnn....and we all laughed so muchhh thenn!!
it still cracks me up, esp when I think on how I would hav looked then :D
I am always used to receiving weird gifts, since I guess my friends find such things more appropriate for me :D!!
and am no less in giving weird gifts to people,
I think I have given a boiled egg to my best buddy once :D!!!
[yeah, i did give a nice gift after that!!]

annwyas...hope u r doing well Keshh!
and whens your bday???? coming up?

Nanyaar? said...

Happy B'day girl! Belated I shud say.
Now that I know that your not into vege's I shall not send you the drumsticks I was just about to post!

SamY said...

AakASH!!! said...

Heyy Keshi! First things first, humungous, hyper and humbling blog. Treat to see, and great to read.

You rock! woman.

And @eggplant, what to say? :-)

St. Dickeybird said...

I was once given a removable locker shelf. Yes, a piece of plastic about 10" by 10" that you can put into, or remove from, a locker. I haven't had a locker since 1991, but this was a couple of years ago.
In her defense, it was a gift from my sister who has Downs Syndrome, but still... weird.

gautami tripathy said...

This year everyone forgot my birthday! No gifts whatsoever!

Neihal said...

ahahahahahahahaha !

Nothing to beat it Keshi. Nothing. :D

Anonymous said...

Sweet Keshi,

I have never received any strange birthday gift.

I have only given myself as a birthday gift to someone.

Cheers and God bless.

Hi Keshi!
Beautiful photo as always.
I think that it is much, much better gift than chocolate gift.
Generally I like this kind of gift.

Margie said...

How are you today Keshi?
Just thought I'd stop in and say "hi"
Hope all is going well with your morning.
I've been trying to get myself out of a sad mood all day.
It was a year ago today that my dear friend Mary died, and I miss her every day, but today has been the hardest!

I wrote this early this morning....
I'll share it with you, as I think you will like it.

I think of Mary in some far heavenly place...
She watches still, and yet is not distresssed....
But rather as one who after life's long race...
Has found contentment in a well-earned rest...
There in a peaceful dreamlike reverie...
She waits from earthly cares forever free.


I shared this with you, so you could imagine your dad in a place like this too....I know you must miss him every day.
You always mention how close you were to him, and what a great man he was.


Have go now....
I need to go take a walk by Mary's house.

I send HUGGGGGGZ!
Take care dear!

Margie

Oh Keshi dear one...
I just read what you left for me and Mary...
It is so very beautiful and touched my heart and soul.
Thank you sooooo very much!
It was just what I needed to feel better...

You are an angel....

The words of Peace my heart
are truly beautiful!!!
You gave me a special gift today that I shall always treasure!

I went by Mary's place....
I could feel her presence, even though she's not there now.
You are right about Mary being in a better place.
She suffered so much her last few months on earth.
But I sure do miss her!

Good night swt hrt....
Thank you for your kindness!

Argh! Missed reading your blog Keshi... the work computer blocks half of the blogs, and at home been to busy!

Soooo...wierdest gift? It's not a birthday gift, but once a guy I went on a date with gave me a plate covered with my name carved out in tofu and surrounded by alot of asparagus and other veggies. hmmmm.... needless to say, we didn't really go anywhere with that relationship. lol!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Slice it thin, sprinkle with olive oil and oregano and toss it on the grill for a few seconds. ou have to eat egg plant while it is still hot or it tends to become kind of gross.

Another beautiful picture of Keshi. Of course how could there be any other kind???

Keshi said...

lolz Javagirl dun u like Asparagus? btw it's got Aphrodisiac qualities oyeahh ;-) Bet he knew wut he was doin!
