The full story. I know everyone wants to hear the details, but FB is not my favourite place to publish everything, so here is my little post on how it all happened and pictures!
Late Sunday evening, 11 April, Hozea surprised me at home with flowers, the ring and on one knee!
Actually, I think I wasn’t THAT surprised because he had been dropping “hints” about how he wanted to proposed but I never gave him the chance. I’ve been struggling with being sick (chronic fatigue syndrome?) again recently… what with swollen necks, headaches and sever fatigue, I haven’t been in the mood to do anything adventurous…. so he could find the “right moment” in that way, so he just had to do it!
That works for me. I thought it was really sweet… especially when he asked “Will you be my bean?” I laughed. :) I didn’t cry at all… mostly because it was happy news. Hozea has a knack for “shocks” and “surprises”… So just before proposing, he confessed that he couldn’t get the ring because it was bought by someone else, and asked me if I would go and find another one with him. At that point in time, I was rather shocked and not thrilled in the least, but I calmly and kindly said it’s ok, I understand how busy he was and while I think he should have tried a BIT harder (no kidding!), we can go look for another one. So with my mind prepped with dissapointment like that, the proposal seconds later came as a pleasant surprise (he lied about the ring!) and I was rather pleased to say “okay.. yes! :)” and let him put the ring on my finger…
We didn’t have much time thereafter to chat as it was late for me, and my energy was like zero-ed out. Yup, but we made up for the lack of dinner and “planning” when we went for dinner this Tuesday and sent the ring for re-sizing (:( no more ring for two weeks!). We made a huge mindmap yesterday of all the various things that we need to settle about wedding and marriage… haha… but no decisions (what’s new?) but I’m happy that we can finally for real make plans that will come true soon!
Everyone who has called me, msged me, fb-ed and hugged me… thanks! I really am grateful I have people to share wonderful news with and celebrate happy moments with… :) But as for floating on cloud nine… erm, not quite lah. I think that will be after I actually get married… I do feel blessed… and strangely richer for the addition of a fiance in my life.
