My Proposal

[Latest update with video:- His Proposal, Her Surprise, Our Love]

It started with a ring. A diamond ring.
And a lone trip to an overseas country, to surprise my girlfriend who is having her holidays with the girls...


Waiting at the airport, alone. I really hate flying alone... Zzzz.

After a long journey from the airport, to the shop, then carrying the huge cumbersome, bulky mascot uniform, and sneaking into the same hotel as my gf, with great help from her friends who sneak SMS to me whenever they returns to the hotel....
I didnt' take photos of the mascot shops, nor the journey, because it was really hot trying to find the place. Even taxi drivers have difficulties finding the road, and the hotel. I did not realize that so many taxi drivers don't know where is "Platinum Mall".


Finally with the mascot costumes safely in my hotel room, and me dying of hunger... I sneaked out to bring back some food and drinks.


Coconut drink, orange juice, some cockles, dunno-what meat, and barbecued squids, sausages and meatballs.....
This was my first meal of the day. The squids, the meat omg, i can spend whole day eating it.
Actually I spent almost the whole day eating these food and hiding in my hotel room, and waiting for the SMS from my gf's friends....

I also tried to wear the mascot on my own, and realized, I can't do it on my own. So in the end, I had to seek more help...

Finally the SMS arrived, and I had seek the hotel receptionist, the bellboy to help me in wearing the uniform.
Plus 1 more receptionist to take photos / videos for me.



Not forgetting the ring.
To be hidden in the Tiger's paws.



Almost done with the paws. Yes there are other tourists giggling at the background.



Yup, I am done, petting my own face to make sure my whiskies are tidy.


Acting nonchalant.... I am just a statue in the hotel.


Oooo the girlfriend appears. And I dash out to socialize with these... tourists.


She walks away with her friends, I must try and stop her for a photoshoot.


Hi there! Would you want to take a photo with a cute tiger?


And all her friends left us alone to take photos...


She started to be suspicious and asked her friends why no one wants to take photos with the tiger.


So a good friend obliged to tone down her suspicions...


Tada! Operation Suspicion Downtune.


And the official photographer behind smirking a smile.....


Blah blah blah, I got down on my knees, sneak out the ring for her!


"Would you marry me?"



"I knew it!"


Girlfriend said I was shaking the whole time when I was proposing, and I barely managed to get the ring into her finger.....


Thanks so much for the kind help! And soooo happy I can share the happiness with you girls!
more photos in the next blogposts.
And video coming up!!

Why I choose a Tiger mascot.
My gf and I know each other from mutual friends' wedding where I was the brother and she was the sister, we become friends, but barely talks on facebook during the 5 years we know each other. We only started talking when the Chinese zodia Year of the Tiger approaches, and she posted a facebook status about a tiger, and I started posting something on her status and.... we started chatting about she being a Tiger.
She also has a photo of her petting a real tiger, and the conversation drift about that tiger now and then...

The "once a while chat" became daily, and sometimes even when we force ourselves to stop chatting due to work/overseas, we found ourselves unbearably drawn to messaging each other. The search for wifi in overseas locations, the repression of heart-absence....

The one thing I appreciate about this relationship is we started both as friends, neither of us wanted a relationship, we just speak to each other to pass time when we were working.
The Tiger helped us start this beautiful relationship...
