How We Met
We are each others’ first relationships! 7 years ago, back when we were both teenagers- we met at the Indian festival of colors (Holi) in Singapore. We danced, had fun and got to know each other better. Fast forward 7 years, we’ve served the nation in the army, entered and graduated college, got our first (and second) jobs and lived through a pandemic- all while being by each other’s side. There is a special sweetness from being each other’s firsts- the first hands we ever held, the first kisses we each had, the first love we got to experience.
How They Asked
On my 25th Birthday- 10th December 2021, we took a holiday to Germany after two years of not being able to leave our home country Singapore. He proposed to me while hiking in Lake Eibsee in the Bavarian Alps. I remember turning around in sub-zero weather (very different from the tropics where we both stay), and everything around me faded to grey. All I could see was the love of my life, the one whom I wanted to spend the rest of my years with, right in front of me asking for my hand in Marriage.
The rest they say, is history. He proposed with a beautiful custom-made 2 carat solitaire on a champagne gold band- with a classic hidden halo to add that extra pop. I wanted a stunning show-stopper that I could also wear daily to work and when out with friends- and I got just that!
