an intermission: 5,331 words later.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our proposal story so far. Congratulations – we’ve arrived at Chapter X! But guess what, I’m only one-third through… (:
To be frank, I’m pleasantly surprised by the sudden and dramatic spike in the number of views. The last three-day running total was a staggering 1,273 hits, with 510 hits on Thursday, smashing the previous record (from last July) of 335 hits by a mile. I am amazed and amused at people’s interest in the way we got engaged.
But in all honesty, it makes me beam with pride yet I am also greatly humbled by it… Either way, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for checking out our lives. As we continue our pilgrimage, we’d like to ask you to keep us in your prayers. (:
Nonetheless, do allow me to carry out some housekeeping before we proceed with this series.
Firstly, we’ve taken part in a Facebook photo contest which you may already know about. We were initially in the lead, but another couple has overtaken us by around 90 Likes. So here’s the deal – I’m going to thank you in advance for helping us win this contest. Besides, it’ll take less than a minute of your time.
Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Do it now. Thanks. (:
And when you have time, do pop over to our pre-wedding blog. It’s called ILYTTE, which stands for “I Love You ‘Til The End”. As we count down to our wedding on 12th August 2012, we’ll try our best to journal this once-in-a-lifetime experience. For now, ILYTTE mirrors my blog, but in time, it will be home to other exciting stuff like Huiyi’s insights(!), RSVP forms, photos and more importantly, our preparation process.
As you know, I’ll be posting at least two entries per day from now until the end of the month. So may I invite you once again to subscribe to my blog via email? Allow me to save you some trouble and serve you some convenience.
One of the joys of writing has always been to hear from readers… Would you do me the honour of interacting with me by sharing with me your thoughts, opinions, feelings – anything and whatever – because I’d love to hear from you. (: Also, instead of posting your comments on Facebook, would you be kind enough to leave your comments here instead? Those precious comments will get lost in Facebook after some time but it would be safely archived on my blog.
Finally, if you’ve just joined us, here’s what you’ve missed:
- prologue to the proposal story.
- I. the elements of a memorable proposal.
- II. the crucial milestone – her family must know.
- III. the most nerve-wrecking moment.

- V. the first idea – Perth.
- VI. the second idea – Mapletree Business City.
