"What's Hot is Gettin Hotter" My Dreams "Love Story"

3 years back, my fiancé took me to Batu Feringghi on our first holiday trip [that time, we weren't a couple yet]. We were sitting at the beach on that fine, serene evening talking about our interests, takes on life, studies, future plans and many others. The conversation was one of the best thing that I remembered till now. There were moments where silence took over, allowing our thoughts flying free to the open sky. I could only hear the sound of wave lapping by the shore and the wind softly blowing my hair. Out of the blue, he put his arm around me I leaned into it, giving him the assurance that it was alright to do so. He kissed me gently on the forehead. I looked up at him and smiled.

He replied my smile and looked at me in the eyes. His next words were a dream came true, “I barely know you even though we have been friends for 3 years. And now, I really want you as my girlfriend. I really love you. And I want the sands, the ocean, and everything here to be the witnesses of our true love”.

I grinned, well more of beaming I must say, and I replied “I love you too. I’m glad you finally ask me this because I really want to be your girlfriend”. From that moment on, we were a couple, an item.

On 1st January 2011,my fiancé and I planned for a gathering with our closest friends and family. I was in charge of the place and I chose Port Dickson. Secretly, without him knowing it, I planned something special for the love of my life.

That night, I asked my fiance's brother to play along. He helped me by taking my fiance away from the camp-side for 30 minutes or so. I gave him my fiancé’s white shirt and make his brother changed.

Then the drama begins. His brother blinded his eyes with a piece of black shirt, to make sure he couldn't see a thing. He willingly let his brother to lead him to the beach. While his brother unties the shirt, my friend, Naqyah and Akmal started playing our very own love song acoustically. It was the first love song he dedicated to me, a song by Duta and Baizura Kahar titled Cinta Antara Kita

When he opened his eyes, he saw his friends sitting on the ground, holding candles, forming a LOVE shape symbol. The he looked up and saw me. I was standing in the middle of the LOVE shape, holding a big frame. He walked closer to me to see what was on the frame. It was full with our photo collages and at the center, there were bold writings saying, ‘I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU TO ASK ME TO MARRY YOU’. He was flabbergasted at first. His face looked shocked. But then the reaction changes. He turned at me and smiled

I was extremely nervous when I saw him walking towards me. My feelings were jumbled up. I felt scared, excited, anxious, and ecstatic at the same time. My brain could not stop wondering, what would he do when he saw what was written on this frame. Will he laugh? Will he go speechless? Will he ask me the big question? All of a sudden, I cried. I’m not sure why am I crying. But I cried. After reading it, he gazed at me and he smiled. I weakly returned his smile. I felt nervous and I could hear my heart was beating so hard, faster than ever.

He then walk closer and bended down on one knee. He looked up to me with his loving face, bringing my thoughts back to the moment which reminded me of his face when he first ask me to be his girlfriend. Touched and overwhelmed, my tears started to flow again. He smiled and paused, taking things at his own pace. I can only hear the sound of waves, the night wind delicately whistling and the roaring sea … nothing else. It was so quite, everyone there were waiting for him to say something. After a while, he then uttered the sentence that swept my feet off the ground “DARLEEN, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU THIS, WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

Indeed, I had expected that from him. But I have no idea why would I be so speechless when it was said to me at that time. What I can remember, I was crying and couldn’t stop. Everyone was waiting for my answer. I looked down at him, I smiling, and ultimately say “YES. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. AND YES I WANT TO MARRY YOU” He stood up and hugged me. I returned to his hug and softly said ‘THANK YOU’.

After that, his sister walked around and gave everyone the cupcakes that I ordered form my friend, Aaron, where I asked him to bake for me 3 weeks earlier. (He is a great baker. And definitely the cake was delicious!) ]. It was specially written on the cupcakes, “OUR ADVENTURE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN IN 315 DAYS”. (as you may guess !).

Well, the pictures tell better stories than my humble writing. You can see how happy we are and the most important thing is that, we shared our happy moment with our friends and family. It was genuinely memorable and will be unforgettable. And thank you all for helping me in making things materialized. I hope you guys have a great time.

ouh. actually, I would like to post this as my first entry for 2011. but i am too busy with finals and too many things to do in such a very little time. and i was thinking, it would be a great thing to post this and at the same time being one of the contestant for CST & LRKL contest.
