Why is this my desired one?
Not for it’s super expensive price tag, but I’ve chosen this burger for Robert Frank (my sweetheart is a big fan of this celebrity because of his amazing documentary films) who is a Swiss-American photographer, documentary filmmaker, Author, Critic and Food lover and above all, he is a huge fan of this Fleur-burger 5000. My sweetheart doesn’t know that Robert Frank loves this burger.
So, it seems to me that when I offer her this super delicious burger which is already loved by her famous celebrity, nothing will stop her from listening to my one and only love song I Love U.
However, Robert Frank personally visited the place, tasted the Fleur 5000 and even posted a review in CNBC.COM. He has given a 5star rating for this masterpiece. So, I’ve decided to visit THE FLEUR to taste their exotic burger with my Love.
The Most Exciting Day
Finally the wait was over and I got. I was super excited and planning for the whole thing. But, after calculating the whole budget, my wallet gave me the sad news.
I was so unfortunate that I could not manage such huge amount on that very short time and had to cancel my plan of proposing with that most expensive burger in the world.
So, maybe I’ve to wait for one more year as I am preparing for the next valentines’ Day. I already started to save money for that romantic moment in a paddle boat on the lake, just she and I.
By the way the good news is that now she is my fiance. I just shared with her what I was going to do this valentines’ Day and she becomes crazy to listen my love song. So, there was nothing to do but to propose her on that heavenly moment with only a flower bokeh and she said YES……..
I never realised that she also loves me so much. I’m really so happy and if everything is okay, we’re going to taste this bun on the upcoming valentines’ Day to make our love story So Great.
