On Love & Proposals: Engagement at Singapore :)
I have so much to blog about since my hiatus last Wednesday. I'm in Singapore (well we're actually flying back to Manila in a couple of hours) and unfortuately we don't have wifi connection in our hotel. However, before I head back to Manila I would like to share how this lovely place changed my life in an instant.
Paolo and I went to Singapore last Wednesday, Feb 15 in lieu of our Valentines celebration. Since we arrived really late, we alloted the next day, to go to Sentosa along with my cousins.
It was a long day of adventure at Sentosa with Paolo and my cousin Bj and his family. Conicidentally it was also our 89th monthsary and Paolo made sure that our Sentosa adventure was fun and exciting. And it was. :)
We concluded the day by Swimming at the Palawan Beach. Afterwards, my cousin invited us to watch the sunset nearby. I was even very eager to pose for outfit and "artsy" shots with my cousins.
Little did I know that on that perfect "sunset moment," when my Kuya asked me and Pao to take a picture, something very romantic was about to happen..
Paolo asked me to marry him.
I was surprised. Everything was so unexpected. I wasn't able to utter a word. I kept on hitting him with my hat. I cannot even remember if I said yes instantly. All I remember was I was shaking as he put the ring on my finger. Tears are about to fall down but I was stopping it for my cousins not to see. I was so happy, so happy that no words can explain what I was feeling. It was surreal. It's like a fairy tale coming true. As I stare on the ring happiness fills my heart. I couldn't believe that Paolo treasures me this much -- so precious, so beautiful, so elegant.
And yes, I am engaged. I am so blessed to have someone as wonderful as Paolo to be part of my life for the forever.
Much Love, TBD
PS: I was the only person who didn't know about this. All my cousins in Singapore knew about this even my family back in Manila! Aww Pao, you're the sweetest! Thanks for making the proposal so sweet and memorable. That's why you wanted me to fly with you and treated me at Singapore. I never expected this :) :)
