Dreaming of Music Boxes

When I was a little girl, I used to get beautiful dreams where I’m surrounded with scattered and floating collectibles, such as figurines, dolls and music boxes.


I’m all grown up now. I no longer get beautiful dreams where beautiful music boxes serenade to me. Instead of getting such dreams, I get nightmares consisting of betrayal, cold blooded murders and lies. Even my dad stops buying me those beautiful music boxes because he thought I would prefer those expensive high-tech gadgets instead of simple collectibles I used to get as a little girl.

It is strange how time changed people and their dreams, and I come to realize that every now and then, we should look back at those simple joys we used to have, like giving music boxes to our loved ones as a token of our love and appreciation.

I missed receiving music boxes as a token of love, and since no one buys me music boxes anymore, I’m thinking of getting one as I happened to stumble upon musicboxes.com coupon codes that I can use to buy it for myself. Unless of course…someone out there is offering to buy me one for the coming Valentines?

Cleffairy: I’m all grown up now, but every now and then, I would allow myself the small pleasure of revisiting my childhood fantasies. Tell me… how many of you girls out there still receive a music box as a token of love, or it has been replaced with Ipods, laptop, digicam and whatnots?

    Duh… he’s not the kind who take hints or even buy gifts for me. If I want something, I have to buy it myself, I guess. Self service. 🙁 He’s not that kind of man. If he is that kind of man, i would have tonnes of birthday presents, vday and anniversaries presents by now.

    My dad is the kind who would take hints and buy romantic gifts for his loved ones, though. Guess my mum is the lucky one, eh?

      Yeah… I used to get music boxes for my birthdays, Pete. Brings back those fond memories from the good old days eh, when everything was simple, and yet sentimental. 😛 I think long music boxes are quite a rage long time ago. Kids these days dun get music boxes anymore. 🙁

    • Cleffairy says:

      Eh? u nv get music boxes before? Pity you Donna! 🙁 I used to get it from my dad and some friends… on birthdays. But not anymore. 🙁

      My husband can be friends with your bf lorr…I want these cute, romantic stuff, but he’ll say it’s a waste of money. 🙁 Sobsobsob. Come… let’s cry together!

      Actually, the box is quite useful. You can actually put some jewelries inside of those boxes. Some of it are designed to keep jewelries.
