It was Sunday, the 11th of September. R, my mum, my brother and I were in Hong Kong and it was our last night there.
The weather was very humid, we were super tired from walking all day, all I wanted was to just have a shower and sleep. But still I thought I could not leave Hong Kong without seeing the Symphony of Lights, right?
My brother had this idea of seeing it from a particular location in Harbour City mall. Mind you, the mall is huge! I think it’s the biggest mall that I’ve ever been. We had him leading the way so we followed him around as he were trying to find that spot.
It was almost 8 PM and the show was scheduled to start at 8.
We were still wandering around the mall, trying to find the spot. My brother said that it was in the 5th floor. I thought he knew how to get there but we ended up going round and round. I got cranky. R was silent the whole time, I thought he was cranky too but did not want to show his emotions in front of my mum and brother, haha.
At almost 10 minutes to 8, we finally found the way to 5th floor, which was through a parking lot. I was rather disappointed. So, the “hidden gem” that my brother meant was a roof top car park area, right across the Harbour. It was far beyond my expectation because at that time I really wanted to sit down somewhere nice.
While waiting for the show to start, R finally started to talk more, and he asked me to take pictures. Ok, I thought. I could not let my mood ruin this family holiday moment as this was our last night in Hong Kong. I decided to let loose and gained control back from my bad mood. I asked my mum to pose – which she did happily :), I took some scenery pictures (the city lights were indeed beautiful!), and I also made some small chats with my brother, while he was trying to connect to local radio (You can connect to local radio to hear the background music as a part of the lighting show).
Then R asked my brother to take a picture of us. I stood in front of R and pose. My brother took so many shots. When he finally stopped, R called him again.
“Wait, let’s do it one more time!” I looked at him in surprise – it’s really rare that he would want to be photographed that much! But I posed again, of course :))))
Suddenly he whispered something in my ear.
“This time, let’s take a picture with this…”
I turned myself over and I saw him holding a box of ring.
He asked the question and I giggly said yes, of course 🙂
My brother took tons other shots of us and my mum was smiling while watching us. I hope my dad too ;’)
So, it turned out that R had made arrangements with my mum and brother about the whole thing. That time he really got me surprised because I thought we were going to buy the ring in Jakarta together! Who would have thought that he had prepared the ring and the proposal?
It may not be the most romantic place, not the most romantic setting, but it was the most romantic thing in our relationship! ❤
What’s your proposal story? 🙂
