In the post, the user said her father came to help them make the money bouquet.
“The problem now is that the bouquet was meant for his birthday this upcoming Hari Raya Haji,” Salwani said. “But the owner himself is decorating the bouquet as we lied to him saying it’s for a booking. It’s so difficult to act! He’s the only treasure we have left in this world.”
Salwani reportedly said her father is the only parent she has left. She wished her father to have a healthy and long life.
“Give me more time to repay all that you did for me,” Salwani said.
To an extent, giving someone a bouquet made out of money is common in Asia.
