Will you...?

In the land of fairy tales, a kiss from prince charming is all it takes to wake up a sleeping princess, and they live happily ever after…

In the movies, it takes a sleeping man for Sandra Bullock to meet Bill Pullman, and amidst all the struggles and confusions, they live happily ever after…

In real life, it takes more than a kiss and definitely not a sleeping man for the hopeless romantics to live happily ever after, it takes guts, a lot of planning, a bit of luck, a good sense of timing.

And a romantic place to, you know, pop up the question.

The time is definitely ripe for that next step for some bells to start ringing. My brain worked overtime, my mind was on a trance whenever I think of all the possibilities, and I, short of harassing, nay, forcing myself for that creative juice, or what remains of it, to start flowing just to come up with the formula on how to do this, when to do this and where to do this.

I didn’t know that it can be this tough! Or I am just putting so much pressure on myself?

I am not known to be a man of surprises, I maybe hiding or sleeping or off somewhere when the 1001 romantic ideas started falling from the sky, I may have grab some but these were crumbs and not the type that can one can swoon over, I don’t have big and earth-shaking ideas, or stuffs that can turn the world upside down, I don’t want things to be complicated, in other words, yours truly is just your plain and simple Juan.

But this time, I want to be different. I want this to be memorable, especially for her.

And you know what, I was also surprised with what I did.

To be continued...

Zherwin,

finally, the long awaited momment!

need some proposal ideas?

dalhin mo siya to your favorite beach place. place a ring in an empty bottle, write "will you marry me?" outside the bottle, and bury it in the sand. then play scavenger hunt with her. just make sure you keep an eye on where you hide the bottle before other people beat her to it.

(my husband said that you better be careful, she might say Yes!..ha!ha! he was just kidding, of course)

watson said...

Naku Zherwin maraming ideas floating in the net. Meron pa humingi ng tulong sa akin kung pwede raw sya kumanta sa Manor with piano accompaniment in front of the dining crowd. Kaya mo yun? hehe

O kaya ilagay yung ring sa wine na dadalhin sa table nyo. Hwag nga lang inumin bigla ito...

I'm also excited for you. Kaya mo yan Zherwin!

Hi there!! Been a lurker for some time now. I couldn't pass up this chance to comment on this momentous occasion :0

Hey, you could borrow my husband's line when he proposed.."I'd like to end this friendship." I actually blogged about it kahit medyo history na yun..

Anyhoo, good luck to you. If you need some advice on the rock..give me shout out :D

atticus said...

anak ng! itutuloy na naman?

halika nga rito at matuktukan na kita. ang bagal magkuwento.

cathy said...

Good luck! Just please don't forget to give her a ring! My husband didn't even ask me formally, we somehow just got the permit and arranged for the wedding. So, I always feel like I missed something, you know. I am still harassing my husband about giving me a big nice diamond post-engagement ring. =)

jho said...

Bakit bitin and kuwento?

Tingnan nga natin kung paano mo ginawa yan proposal. Dali na, kuwento na.

Good luck!

Panaderos said...

Naks! Hanep sa intro!

We eagerly await the conclusion to your story. (Huwag mo namang pahabain ang pag-hintay namin. Hehehe)

Rudy said...

Hmm, madalas ba siyang dumaan sa EDSA? Kung ganun, mag-post ka ng giant billboard that says "Lyn, will you marry me?" That'll surely grab her attention...

O kaya, just go to her place of work and in front of her colleagues, kneel down and propose. Simple na mura pa! :-D

Anyway, mukhang ginawa mo na ang gagawin mo so wait na lang ako sa susunod na kabanata, hehe... :-D

Abaniko said...

You're such a teaser, man.

Bitin. :D

Gina said...

zherwin said...

zherwin said...

IA said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't stand the suspense! Zherwin, paki kwento na please!

Speaking of proposal ideas, SIL ko received a proposal on an x-ray film, radiologist kasi siya...bf niya nagpa x-ray with that "will you..." question on a slate, and they are living happily ever after. Kayo eh mahilig sa beach and mountains, siguro dun mo rin siya dadalhin? Hay naku, I am so waiting for the next episode!

Bugsybee said...

Zherwin, bakit wala pang continuation 'tong story mo? Ikaw ha ... nang bibitin ka ha!

But I saw pictures in your multiply account. Ganda! Yun na ba ang proposal?
