So I am now a Mrs. It has just been weeks since our wedding and we just came back from a trip to Korea. That country is awesome by the way, I'll talk about it in another post. Still thinking if I'll start writing here or if I'll continue blogging through our wedding site. Until that gets decided then I'm staying put here.
After my scheduled WFH today I went to the mall to withdraw and do some walking (and reward myself with some Potato Corner fries. Guilty pleasure.) Ended up in a bookstore and got depressed when I realized I have not bought a book and completed reading a book since early last year. Wow. So I spent 30 minutes just browsing around the store. I promised myself that after all the wedding preparations, I will go back to reading. Okay, maybe after the wedding na lang. I'll just end up making my eye-bags bigger if I start reading before the wedding because I have the habit of not putting down a book if it's really interesting. So there, promise number 1.
Next activity was to cleanup my old email accounts. Got to the email where this blog is linked to. Got to check on the blog and saw that my last post was from August of last year. The post where I officially started to countdown to our wedding day. Re-read a number of other entries and realized how much I love writing (and earning from writing too.) So here comes promise number 2. I promise to write more. Not because I want/need extra moolah but simply because it makes me happy. I can just imagine my older self reading back to these entries and being thankful that I wrote down memories I can look back to. :)
I was asking a lot of people if I really need to create our very own wedding blog. I planned to open one initially but then laziness won. So I shall continue to update you here in my good OLD blog and hope that I'll be able to update this blog as often as I can. :) So... we got engaged last March 17. My birthday. As what we have been doing for the past years, when the celebrant can't think of anything to do or a place to go to on his/her birthday, the other one is required to plan for it. So that's exactly what happened on my birthday this year. My plan was to have lunch with my family - we had a hearty celebration at Dad's/Kamayan/Saisaki - then dinner plans was made by Arvic and me being my spoiled self wanted a surprise celebration. My only request... Surprise me with a new place. :) He brought me here.... He said he wanted to have dinner on a Cruise and so we did just that. I was happy he managed to plan this out.. impressive!
Dinner was just okay --- a piece of chicken, sauteed veggies, and some fruits for dessert. But we were there for the view and the experience. There were only a number of people aboard and most of them were of different nationality. The cruise passed by Mall of Asia, Solaire etc. There was an acoustic musician onboard playing old love songs. I wanted to request for one but we were close to ending the cruise already and then this... Arvic told me he had one more surprise, it was a gift. He gave me a piece of ribbon to pull on and as I pull on it, it had a message on it..
He TRIED to get down on one knee but we were both scared that since the winds were a bit hard that time, he might lose the ring. So what happened??? He handed me the ring under the table. HAHAHAHAHA! Did I cry? I was close to crying but then we both looked so silly trying to look at the ring under the table that we just ended up laughing instead. :)) Spent the rest of the cruise asking questions as to when/how he planned all of this and who knew about it. It was the perfect proposal/engagement for us. "Away" from the buzz of the city, a view of the sunset and the city lights, music playing, and just the two of us. BEST.BIRTHDAY.GIFT.EVER! Thank you my Dear :)
Now let the countdown to our wedding day begin. ;) CARPE DIEM! I'm out.
