Last Tuesday, DA POGI and I celebrated our 6th year anniversary. This is the first anniversary that we celebrated as an engaged couple.
Yup, you read right. We're engaged.
We went to Subic last Friday for, what I thought was, the usual summer vacation with friends. We were with his friends this year.
Anyways, we got in the hotel at around 4PM in the afternoon. We decided to rest for a while, since Rye's gf is still at the office. They decided that we should meet up at around 6PM for dinner at Blue Mountain. Jester and I got into an argument about me taking a shower before dinner. He's telling me that I should and I am telling him that I should not since I was tired from the trip. DA POGI was in the background just listening in to the argument. In the end, I didn't take a shower.
When we got to Blue Mountain, we were ushered into a funciton room. I was wearing really "comfy"clothes (a tank top, drawstring pants and sneakers) while most of them were wearing polos and slacks. I thought nothing of it, since that's how they normally look like when I see them anyways. I never thought anything about the function room either. There were seven of us and since the place was a small place, I thought that was how they seated 7 people.
So, we had paella, which was absolutely delicious, and beef tenderloin tips. Dinner was the usual conversation among friends, the usual alaskahan. When dinner was done, they decided that we should have some dessert. The guys went out for a smoke, Stef and Rye went to the frontdesk to ask something. DA POGI and I were the only ones left in the room. I commented that I felt so underdressed, but he hugged me and reassured me that I looked fine.
Angel of Mine was played in the background, and I sang to him.
Then, the waiter went in with roses and a cake. I thought it was an anniversary thing celebrated earlier. But when I saw the cake, I just cried. :) The cake was decorated with a bear holding a heart. In the heart were these words:
Jen, Will you marry me? J
I just hugged him and cried. He got the ring from his pocket, and with tears in his eyes, asked me if I was willing to marry him. I said yes.
We called everyone in to join us for dessert. I was so happy that I couldn't control the tears. During dessert, he called up my mom to tell her that I said yes and that we're getting married next year.
I called all my college friends and told them of the news. I called in my high school friends for a meeting to tell them of the news.
And that is why I was so busy to blog these past couple of days. :)
