Belated Gifts for Taufik

Get Taufik an iPod!

(This post has been edited!)

His birthday has passed. Christmas was just over. Is it too late to give him a present?

The answer is - NO!

A few of us who had been around The Taufik-ed League had been thinking to get him a birthday present for the longest time. If you read LIME (Jan Issue), it was said a fan-turned-friend Aleza is buying him an iMac laptop.

While Taufik will be getting a brand new laptop (good for him!), we also planned to get him an iPod instead! Taufik loves the white one, be it mini or otherwise (and he doesn't really fancy the iPod U2 - the black one). We have some money in hand, and now you can contribute to the iPod fund! Actually an iPod Mini will be good, but currently it is out of stock, so we will be getting an iPod Photo for him instead!

This is how it works:

1) You can either pay online (through PayPal) or by meet up (details below)
2) We will collect your name, contact info, photo and message to Taufik
3) Once we have collected enough fund, we will purchase the iPod and get a huge card with all the contributors details inside
4) We will encourage Taufik to personally pen a Thank You message to each contributor

We worked out the sum and guessed each contributor will need to contribute a sum of S$30.00. Online contributor will contribute US$20.00, which will include PayPal commission fees, bank withdrawal fees and protection against USD rate fluctuation. We need about 30 contributors to make it work! And best part of all - this is open to Taufik-ed fans from all over!

Click on the button below to make payment via PayPal (the most preferred way):

OR, for meet up, please let us know by filling up this form

The price of the iPod is approximately S$888.00, and whatever extra fund we have will be used to but accessories, card - you know, all the works.

But, what if you already have a gift for Taufik but no chance to give to him?

Fret not - we are organizing a meet up! For those of you who wants to pass your gifts to Taufik, you can do so through us. You can meet up with us during the session where we collect payment from those intending to contribute to iPod fund by meet up. Here are the details, so note it down in your calendar! Drop me an email if you are coming, so that we know who to expect :)

Venue: Coffee Bean @ Wheelock's Place (Orchard)
Date: 29th December 2004 (Wednesday)
Time: Between 6.30 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.
Who to look for: Will be announced later

Alright, hope this will be fun, and do show your support! I'm going to take lunch now, and - oh yeah - please spread the word!

how r u gonna pass the ipod to taufik? will he really send a thank you letter to every single contributor? a creative zen is much better in quality and is cheaper... and it even has voice recorder and radio functions... i think a creative zen will be much more useful for taufik...

I'll have my way to pass the iPod to him. Althought I don't know him in person, it will be a thing of the past :)

Of course, I can't guarantee he will send a Thank You letter to all. I will "encourage" him to do it, even help to co-ordinate the whole thing. Like, I print some Thank You cards, he pen some message and sign, and I'll post it off to all contributors.

Of course, please don't view this as a mean of getting a card from him. A gift comes from the heart. Give unconditionally and expect nothing in return - and you'll be blessed, one way or another.

That, is the spirt of Christmas/Birthday giving!

I heard Taufik already have an iPod, given to him by some fans during his birthday party in Aleeza's estate some time ago. Read this in a blog. Maybe you better check again with anyone who knows him?

Actually, I am a bit blurred now. As it was Aleza herself who suggested this "campaign", see? So I am pretty sure Taufik won't have an iPod. Anyway, I'll double check. Thanks, Dita, you are really a gem :)

hi razlan. the gift was given to taufik by his fans. how would aleza knew wat was given to him by his fans? can u get aleza to confirm with HER nieces and nephews who actually stayed at siglap where the birthday party was held. i mean it would be a waste if we bought him wat he already haf. and a creative zen micro is much better than iPod. thanks dude.

Alright, here are the latest updates:

1) There was some money pooled but nothing was bought
2) Taufik personally prefer iPod compared to Creative Zen
3) Aleza will be getting him an iBook

This is the information I have got so far. In any case, I will confirm with Taufik if indeed he has an iPod already before purchasing. If he really has one, then we can always switch the gift to something else.

But fret not, Taufik-ed fans, we will do all we can to show Taufik that, yes, we all love him and will support him all the way!

yeap agree with those who give comments on the posting, creative zen is a wiser choice.i pod's battery is built in and you cant change it when it dies. but the creative zen you could change the battery when it worn out.yah i would reccommend to the organiser to buy taufik a creative zen.support local company aight..
