the surreal moment.

February 4, 2012

2 of my friends, were excitedly sharing about their unexpected wedding proposal last night through the online media. I can’t help but feel the pure excitement through their every word, right to the punctuations and capitalisations 😉

There is just something magical about a wedding proposal.

In fact, I actually feel that the moment you just said ‘Yes’ to a proposal, should be even more surreal than when you finally exclaimed the ‘I DO.’

Well, we all know that most guys, if have a choice, would prefer not to be tied down just yet. They were blessed without a biological clock, and they have the privilege of not depreciating in value as they grow older. And more often than not, the female counterparts are portrayed as the group with much more to lose: Our virginity could be proven, our promiscuity will be looked upon with disgrace, and usually we love too deeply, often making lots of sacrifices, that could be detrimental to us when things fall apart.

So, when such a moment comes,

That this guy that you love dearly, actually thought long and deep, and decided that he wants to spend the rest of his life with you.

Not just that, he starts to think more about you, refreshing his memory about what you like or dislike, recounting your best friends, and spend enormous time cracking his head to prepare a special moment just for you.

He starts saving up on the ring, reads up on proposal ideas, asks around for quotation, gets your family and friends’ blessing or help, prays hard to not fumble with the plan, and at the same time – preparing himself for the worst.

The guy actually had to risk being vulnerable to possibly the biggest rejection of his life.

Now, you don’t easily get a guy willing to go to such an extent, if he doesn’t love you enough.


This year itself, many of my friends and acquaintances are either getting engaged or be tying the knot soon~

I, on the other hand, am not rushing into one yet this year, but contented that Alex and I are hopeful for a future of US as man and wife. We even named our unborn children LOL. I had to literally fight with him to stop naming our unborn son ‘Apollo.’ #truestory

Love, Wedding, and Marriage – are three very different entities.

So I sincerely wish all of US the best in all three departments 🙂

and with that..

Three cheers to a blessed life of LOVE!!!

    I am smiling reading this! Yes you are right, guys around our age who are ready to settle down and be tied down are somewhat mature beyond their years. And reallyyy brave.

    p/s: I know one of the proposal is Miza’s, who is the other person??

        Kevin had the ring box hidden in his board shorts pocket and was so damn nervous I would find out because the whole time we were walking out deeper into the waters of the Andaman Sea, it was floating in his pocket!

        I was walking in front of him, when he called out to me so I turned around, saw his hand stretched out with this coral that looked so UNamazing that I went, “meah, what a crappy coral!” He suddenly tossed it aside and THEN i saw the ring box sitting on his hand. Then he asked The Big Question. I totally cried (like I said I would) and said yes!

        I asked him what he thought my response would be afterwards. He said “you’d cry, and you’d say yes, coz im such an amazing guy.” Such confidence!
