Since Deardo and I already bought a house together and since age is allowing us to step into that level of life, it is easy to guess what we are going to do next. But I demanded a proposal, a grand one! Looking at those romantic proposal videos, I told Deardo that I want him to do it in the public just so that I can feel that you can let go your pride for me (naughty me :p).
Fast forward to the second day of our Perth trip. Deardo had just drove the car for almost seven hours just for us to reach Wave Rock from Perth City, then down to Albany. I know he was already freaking exhausted and was a little shocked at how this one lady stopped him on the road because he was a bit blur on the road. But since we arrived at Albany earlier than expected, we drove to the beautiful Wind Farm before checking-in to the backpackers place.
Although the sound of the wind and the ocean at the Wind Farm always sounds a little scary to me, I've always find the place really amazing and undeniably beautiful. I felt totally the same even though that was already my third visit to the Albany Wind Farm. And so I kept on telling Deardo that he is going to love that place. True enough, he not only love the entire scenery, but was also amazed by the technology of the generators.
|Still enjoying the view without knowing what was installed for me...|
The view was truly breathtaking, especially when it was already near sunset!!! It was also freaking cold because the sun was setting and the wind was super strong! And once the sun set, it will be just dead dark at the area it would be crazily scary too! But Deardo, who absolutely enjoys the cold weather asked to sit down to feel the wind a little.So did we. And then came the following conversation, roughly...
Deardo: Ah du! Tomorrow is my birthday (which is true)!
Me: Yeah... I know.
Deardo: What are you going to give me?
Me: Perfume lor, I thought it was decided that we are checking out the perfumes at the airport???
Deardo: But I want more than that! I want you...
Me: (Is he getting horny or what?) Well unofficially I am yours, no?
This is when he took out that tiny box from his pocket and knelled down...
|Not too small lar, isn't it? Kekekeke...|
... And then whatever happened here or whatever he said, I can't remember a thing at all... Seriously I was too shocked and sort of forgot to remember what he said or even what I said!!! Okay, I think I remember asking him when did he buy the ring? And me telling him the rock looks small... LOL!!!
But I do remember I didn't say 'yes' to him, I just put out my fingers for him to put the ring on. :)
So yes, it was at a public place, but zero witnesses except for the sea, sky, some 20 wind generators and the sun. No fancy script and absolutely no video recording of the whole process... Damn why did I say yes? That was way too easy for him!!! Worst part was, Deardo said he wasn't even nervous about the proposal. The only concern was that the custom would want to check his bag and there would be no surprise at all! Ha! Should have at least let him kneel for some time!!! :p
But well, he managed to surprised me after all. And proposing at the gorgeous Albany Wind Farm during sun set was super duper romantic too! I think these matters a lot, really. At least I could remember where he proposed and how hard was it to sneak the ring in from KL without me realising it!
Thanks a lot Deardo Wong for such unexpected proposal! Although not what I've dreamt of, it was really sweet and romantic of you!!! :)
