How We Met

We worked together in New York City during our internship year of Internal Medicine residency.

How They Asked

He booked a sunset dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya river that involved a five course Thai meal from an upscale restaurant. We were late because we had gone on an adventure in the heat and humidity in a local bus to find one of the floating markets. The dinner was excellent and I saw him talking to the lady in charge of cruise. Then he told me they were serving dessert on the lower deck, so we went down there. He said “I know we had a really crazy day today, but I want to have crazy days with you for the rest of our lives” and pulled the engagement ring out of his shorts pocket 😱 Afterwards, he had booked an alcove in the rooftop bar at the Waldorf Astoria, where the waitress was waiting to give us celebratory chocolate cake and champagne.
