I’m Engaged!!

Some of you may have read this from my Facebook or Twitter–I’m engaged (as of June 25, 2013)!!

Thank you for your overwhelming congratulatory messages!! :) Ken and I are extremely happy to have found each other and this proposal is really more of a formality to me than anything.

I may write about the proposal if there are people keen on reading it, but right now I’m waiting for Ken’s friends to send the videos over.

In short, he put a lot of thought into planning the most memorable proposal for me–there were over five hundred balloons, vans, a behind-the-scenes support crew of five people (comprising his friends), pre-proposal location sighting, filming crew, prop setup, tulips, etc. involved!

In fact, he told me afterward that he had planned to propose on two other days (first on his company’s family day at Sentosa beach, in front of thousands of people, but that event got cancelled due to haze; the other during my PE readers meetup last Sunday) before choosing my 29th birthday to pop the big question. For the proposal at Sentosa beach, he went into quite a deep level of planning, contacting the event emcee and all — and had in fact planned for a wet weather plan as well. I joked to him that he was planning three proposals because he went into such in-depth planning for each!

Thanks Ken for your love and faith in me. :) I’ll love you till the end of time.

For those of you who are curious, here are some quick photos:
