Couple's Corner - The Proposal

Posted by Kero at Wednesday, November 04, 2009
Rodliz’s Nest

For most, it could be the most unromantic marriage proposal :)

It happened online. On YM to be precise. With the entire Indian Ocean separating us.

Our friends and family thought it was crazy. We have not seen each other for a two years. We didn't even hold hands or kissed. How could one possibly sure it was love between us?

Holy week in March 2006, Ceasar popped the question. It didn't come entirely as a surprise because he had been giving hints like asking about Ivatan engagement (Ivatan is what you call the locals of Batanes). He gave me a day to think it over. Like i still need to think about it LOL!

When I accepted his proposal, he shared the poem below.

Love is the nicest feeling
possible to know.
Love gives life its meaning
and adds the warmest glow.
Love is about caring and
sharing too.
Love is the special feeling I have
when I think of you.
Sending you all my love at this special moment
and best wishes

While i was feeling over the moon, my family was least enthusiastic with the idea. Though Ceasar worked for our province for two years, none of them had met him in person.

But when things are meant to be, the universe conspires to make it all happen for you. His request for vacation next month was granted. He will be back home to the Philippines two weeks since the time I said yes!. Generally, an OCW in Saudi Arabia is only allowed for vacation after two years. I was expecting to see him yet in August.

And then there was a job waiting for him in Dubai, UAE. The company is expecting Ceasar to join them in May. That means he can only stay in Pinas for about four weeks!

We have two weeks to prepare. How are we going to pull of a first date, a first kiss, a wedding, and a honeymoon all in a month?

Till next Couple's Corner!

Ganon? hehehe, sa YM ba nag propose? and as usual, gaya ng sinabi ko kay Sheng at Niko.. it's not where and how the proposal had occurred, it's the proposal itself that makes it very special. Ke personal or wide world web, ang mahalaga eh he loves you enough to ask to marry you di ba? I think that's sweet.

4 weeks probably would be enough time to prepare for first date, first kiss, wedding and honeymoon, fast forward na lang, hahahhaa!

thanks for sharing your story..

maraming nagligawan at nagpropose sa ym na ngayon ay mag-asawa na. distance doesn't matter.

4 weeks for everything? kinaya nyo naman and you're now blessed with a loving boy.

first time to hear a proposal through net...kakaiba nga!

i agree with mommy liz that it's not where and how the proposal had occurred, it's the proposal itself that makes it very special.

...pag nagmamahal nga nman noh...kahit anong paraan gagawin mo para lang maiparating mo kung gaano kahalaga ang taong yun sau.

nice story dear...

I agree w/ all Mommies comment in here...needless to say more...sabi nga ni Mareng Niko pag nasapul ka ni kupido hindi ka na pwedeng umilag pa,kaya he YM or sa anumang paraan pa ang proposal really don't just matter.What really matter's the feein' you both have.
So,next episode is too soon na!:D..giggle
