Don't squeal yet~! =D
I need to start from A before jumping to Z aren't i? :P
Ok.. *clears throat*
it all happened few minutes before my birthday.
YES, my birthday was yesterday (26th Dec), HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! XD *clap*clap*clap*
During the last hour of Christmas, i was out doing some shopping with Julian while waiting for our Christmas supper with his 'dad'.
Notice the inverted comma on the word 'dad'? :P
Well, with Julian's nonstop texting activity, it's hard not to notice that he was plotting a birthday surprise for me :P
Believe me, i myself hate to spoil my own surprise... and i tried my hardest to drop every single expectation i could think of weeks before my birthday.
But the answer was just THERE even during our trip in Seremban last week XD *hehe sorry BB.. i wont go into details*
Point is.. I KNOW :P
Plus, the 'meeting with dad for supper' was suppose to be at 9pm.
The time was almost 9.30pm and Julian's not the type to keep his dad waiting.
"Are you sure we're meeting your dad?~~~" I asked innocently
While we were in the car, i said it again..
"Are you sure we're meeting your dad~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"
"Yeeeessss Sayanggggg~~~ Why do you keep asking me that??"
"Nothing~ :P I thought you don't like to keep your dad waiting >:)"
"That's why la I'm driving fast now.."
*starting to put on make up*
"Why are you putting on your make up????"
"Just in case~~~ *smirks* >:)"
"why la you.. there's no surprise party sayang~~~"
"Wokay~~~~ ^_^" *continues putting on make up*
"Should I change my clothes?"
"What for.... you ok dy~~~"
"Presentation~ ^_^", i answered lightly
Julian a.k.a in Hot seat.
But it was fun teasing him =D
So as you might have expected, there WAS indeed an early birthday surprise party.
I don't care whether i knew it or not...
it was those who came and shared my bday celebration (during Christmas celebration some more) that matters :)
For that, I thank you EVERYONE for coming ^_^
It truly meant a lot to have great friends around especially those who involved in organising it (Hugs BB, Marsieee and my siblings)
So where is the proposal????
This is the fun part :)
To be honest, being realistic, there's no point of doing a proposal when you know where the relationship is going and what you want at the end of it right?
We both basically planned the engagement, picked auspicious date for both engagement and wedding ceremony, spoke to our parents and yeah... that's it.
So i thought..
"is that it? Is that all to it?"
No dream proposal?
No surprise ring?
This is the part where i don't favour my malay culture.
So after throwing my hope out of the window, BB and I continue to shop for our engagement necessities including my engagement ring.
I didn't want to blow his budget, so I eyed for a pretty descent one.. until i saw the sparkling Hearts on Fire diamond.
*bedazzled* ...their 'World Most Perfectly Cut Diamond' is not merely a branding hu-ha after all.
I compared, tested and sewaktu dengannya.
I loved it.. but I thought.. We seriously can't afford it :(
But what surprised me next was that Julian actually went for it O_o"
I was happy.. YES...
But i really didn't know how to react when the ring was bought!!!
(what's wrong with me?? =_=")
After walking out from the shop, I digested the fact that despite the wedding cost that will soon bombard Julian's account, he still bought the expensive WEDDING ring coz he knew i liked it...
Furthermore, it finally snap me back to reality that I am actually gonna cross THE bridge of married life soon..
to my surprise, the thought made me all teared up, overwhelmed with happiness.
I love him more and more :)
Then suddenly, BB told me he wanted to keep the ring.
Takkan he want to sell it back XD
No no no... can't be...
I screamed in my heart "I'm gonna get a proposal!!!!"
Now back to the early birthday party...
Knowing him... and BEING ME...i thought there was gonna be a 'double surprise'.
I waited... waited... Aik...?? None.
Okay... maybe not tonight... :(
So after we finished with my early bday party, we then proceed to Boutique Cupcakes at around 11pm for another Christmas gift exchange party.
As my friend, Mei, appointed me to become Julian's secret santa, i sneaked my Christmas gift for him (which we bought together earlier) inside my bag :P *luckily Parkson has gift wrapping service muahahaha*
There, Mei called out all names and gave out each and everyone's present from their secret Santa... except me.
I almost felt so embarrassed coz everybody was looking at me..
With a concern face, Julian asked Mei... "How about Fara?"
Mei got surprised..
"Didn't you get my sms???" she quickly asked Julian
"Omg!!! I told you to buy present for her.. You're suppose to be her secret santa!!!
You didn't receive meh???"
"No...~~~?" He said while standing behind me
*Oh-oh~~~ <-- i thought*
"You didn't??" Mei asked again, panic
"No...~~~" He repeated again
*sobs... <-- starting to feel stupid* Then suddenly people starting to go.. "Ei??? Uuuuuuuuuuu~~~~.. Aaaaaaahhh~~~~"
Curious, i turned back..
And there he was...
Standing with my Hearts on Fire ring opened for everyone to see.
I was slightly shy and speechless :)
He knelt down, looked at me and say "Will you marry me?"
with 'I dont know what the hell to feel' expression on my face, I said "yes" :)
What made it funny was when everybody else mimicking my YES~~~ lol.
I never imagine myself saying the line 'He knelt down, looked at me and say "will you marry me"
So corny man!!! HAHAHA!
But it felt bloody great to receive an official proposal.
Fiuh~ And so... that, was my wedding proposal story...
sweet and simple, with a touch of Julian's unique recipe :)
As much as I wanted to wear the ring immediately, we were advised to keep it for our official engagement ceremony (happening in 2 weeks time).
So wish us luck everyone!!! :)
PS: I would also like to say Thank you to all friends, acquaintances and whoever wished me via sms, bombarded my facebook wall with thoughtful wishes, online cards and traditional bday cards. I was very very very happy to receive every single one of them :)
To Mama and Papa, thank you for the Iphone 4. Muahahahaha!!! Coolest gift everrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! XD
To Phil and Leena for the Birthday lunch treat at Party Play. The Seafood Pizza was yummy!
Oh! And not forgetting sweet dinner and cake from my ever loving family.
Happy Birthday to me!!!! XD Can't wait for the official engagement ceremony!!!! =D *doki doki*
