okay… the truth is… we had set the wedding date even before he proposed.
It was really annoying in a way because our friends were like,
Us: Hey, make sure you available on xx.xx ya.
Friend: Wuuuuuu! Getting married ah?
Us: Hehhehee.. a lor…
Friend: HOW HE PROPOSED?! / HOW YOU PROPOSED?!
Us: Actually…. He hasn’t/ I haven’t proposed yet….
Friend: Har?? *looking confused* But you say you getting married wor… / *krik krik krik*
Damn throw face can!
Its like… I’m terus sold without him even paying/depositing (with a ring).
Sibeh rugi can….
Not sure if depositing or paying sounds right but you get the idea.
Hence I always asked him, eh.. when are you going to propose har? You buy ring liao ah?
I know.. so un-romantic. But I don’t care. I mean… die die must get proposed right? its once in a lifetime one wor. (I even warned him if he didn’t proposed before the ROM (which actually, we have not decided on the date yet).. I will not marry him! Hmmpphhffff!)
Then, I’m always mentally prepared for the proposal. Wuu…. he’s bringing me to this nice place for dinner, is he going to propose there? It’s our 8th paktohversary! He’s definitely going to propose that time. Oh, the mood feels so right, it would be great if he takes a ring out and asks me to marry him. Nah, all my friends come my house makan, maybe he’ll surprise me!
And…. none of these came true.
Hence I gave up imagining and expecting….
(And concentrated on the preparation and arrangement… Man, I was in such sulky mood. Mood swing lah selalu… Its like, this moment I’m feeling excited, and the next moment, I’m mad because he still hasn’t proposed yet! *Bridezilla mode on* Anyways…
Then came May 16th, the magical night.
(which was totally unexpected.. everyone says its better that way. I guess so)
Pingko wanted to treat us all Garden Circlings to a dinner to celebrate (not sure if that’s the right word to use) her new job. Since Vai was driving, I said ok. And my mom tagged along too because Pingko said she promised my mom too, belanja her makan and all those lies that I totally unaware of.
To be honest, I was feeling a little guilty because I didn’t get to see 48 that day. She’s only back for 5 days and I wanted to be with her everyday! I even asked if she wanna follow but she said no.
Little did I know, it was all part of Bobby’s plan. Since it’s a dinner with the Garden Circlings, I had no expectation that Bobby would appeared! He fb-inboxed all my close friends behind my back to plan this. Aiyer… very sweet lah.
My other bunch of besties were patiently waiting outside the restaurant, waiting for the right moment to come in the frame.
SL drove the girls (Theen, Kelly and 48), plus SukChin, Joseph and Bobby, all 6 of them waiting outside. Y MY FRIENDS SO SWEET ONE!
Then while waiting for my food to arrive, I realized I left my phone in Vai’s car and said I’m going to get it. Pingko terus stood up and said want to accompany me to the car. I was like, Eh? I’m only going to take my phone from the car, I’m not a kid leh… You got thing to tell me is it?
(She told me afterward that everyone panicked when seeing me going out and quickly sent her out, while she quickly text them to hide in the corner so I wont see them. Hahahhahaa)
Halfway eating.. and complaining how bad the food was… the waitress suddenly put a box in front of me and asked me to open.
It’s a scrapbook journal he made from scratch. I was a bit teary when reading through because he recorded all the moments inside and I know its not easy to complete it one whole book! (I know I won’t have the patience to finish it.)
I was laughing so hard when I read this page. His rivals mah.. steady lor. His rivals are my DS, TV, iPad and my best friend wtf.
Then my mom (the spoiler) nudged me and said, “Eh eh… Chaiwen, Kelly they all there hiding. Bobby also hiding”
Nah, I know what’s going on liao lor!
Then bunch of besties suddenly appeared behind me, I was like…. “48! YOU SAID YOU DON’T WANT TO GO BSB WITH ME! Y U HERE NOW! YOU ALL COME HERE! HAHAHAHHAH! *a bit gila dunno what I was talking already*”
And then the waitress passed me a camera, his camera and asked me to see what’s inside.
Bobby recorded a proposal video in it (No video here because all the photos and videos with him now. I forgot to save it into my lappie) …. Honestly, I got a little bored and wanted to press the forward button because the pace was super slow! My patience level is well known for its “low-ness” one.
Just after I finally finished watching the slow whiny video (imo), Bobby came out with a ring. He was hiding behind Joseph all the time. Hahhahahahaha.
Kneeled down on one knee, showing me the ring, and spoke in really broken Mandarin,
It was so broken that I didn’t quite get it for the first time and asked him to repeat. And after he repeated, I asked him to say it again and again, just for my amusement! Hahahahaha. Ghost ask him made me wait so long ah!
Sampai my friends beh tahan me and asked me quick say yes lah.
I was so hyper during the whole thing. Right after he proposed, I hugged everyone (except SL because he loves his body so much that he didn’t want anyone to spoil his wonderland wtf) and yelled “I'M FINALLY ENGAGED！” showing my ring sampai the next table heard me saying that. Which happened to be Maurina’s friend hence she knew first hand about the proposal thru whatsapp.
The big group photo.
And then, we got back to our seats, continued makan and complained how bad the food was again.
Thank you everyone! Thank you all for being there making the day extra special to us. I love you all!
p/s: Bobby told me he actually had plan A and plan B and this is the plan C. His plan A and B are way cooler though. So I asked him if he can propose again. He ignored me.
p/p/s: I just added a new category to his blog, “Wedding”. Though I think I won’t be blogging or saying much about the preparation. Hehehehehe. Wait lah, when the time comes then will slowly talk about it one.
