EVERYDAY: I’m Engaged! <3


Last October 27, 2018, my life changed.

 

Last October 27, we flew to Coron.

Last October 27, we went to Sophia’s Garden Resort.

Last October 27, I ate bagnet for lunch.

Last October 27, I took some pictures and selfies.

Last October 27, we climbed 700+ steps to the peak of Mt. Tapyas.

Last October 27, I laughed with my friends, held Jude’s hands and whispered, ‘ayoko na. pagod na ko’ on the way to the top while sweating like a pig.

Last October 27, Jude patiently and continuously wiped all my sweat and fixed my hair.

Last October 27, we went back to the resort in a van.

Last October 27, It was a normal day and I was happy lady then.

Until I wasn’t.

Perfect by Ed Sheeran was playing when we arrived at the resort. I was singing ” just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own. and in your eyes you’re holding mine”. As I was singing the lyrics, I can hear familiar voices playing in the background while we were on a path with lighted hearts! ❤ ❤ ❤

And then I realized, it was a video of the people who are close and dear to me telling me to ‘SAY YES, JANNA’. ❤

Then there’s this perfect gazebo, a ‘MARRY ME’ plastered right smack in the middle of all our memories, full of our pictures, full of our time together, full of laughter, fights, pain and an overwhelming love for each other. ❤

My Jude thought about everything. He printed about 300 pictures, displayed it mixed with the fairy lights, roses and heart shaped candles. He even shipped everything from Manila and hired a videographer for the perfect proposal SDE. Perfect is an understatement.

He told me things I cannot even remember. He probably told me he loved me. 😀 I honestly cannot remember. I spaced out. I was speechless, stunned and overwhelmed.

He got down on one knee, asked me to be his wife and there’s no other word in the universe I’d reply with than a big fat, screaming YES. ❤

This is scary. This is exciting. This is beautiful.

I know how sacred and precious marriage is. We both are not perfect. We have flaws, we fight, we change but there are also moments that you teach me what unconditional love is. It will be messy at times but there will be perfect moments too. And I’m willing to share each and every moment with you.

You are my silver lining.

You are my Derek. You are my Ross. You are my Ted. You are my Jack.

You are everything good in life. You are my greatest blessing.

You are everything dear to me. You are my best friend.

I love you.

Last October 27, I said my easiest ‘YES’.

Last October 27, I said yes to the man of my dreams.

Last October 27, I said yes to a lifetime with my person.

Last October 27, I got engaged.

Last October 27, I’m not only a happy lady but I became my happiest.

Last October 27, my heart is full and whole.

❤ ❤ ❤

TRAVEL: CORON DAY 2


Palawan can never and should never be traveled without devoting a day for beach! Ain’t that right? so you know where we spent the day huh? Sand and sun.

First Stop: Kayangan Lake

Where the famous overlooking view is at. You should have a wonderful photographer friend with you, our tour guide was a failure. Thus, it’s almost impossible to see us in this picture. Haha

We had to go down and up, to reach the actual Kayangan Lake.

And if you swim just a bit more, you get to swim under a big rock or cove or something until you reach the Hidden Lagoon. 

This is CYC Beach – it was a bit small, but it’s peaceful and white and serene.

We had an amazing seafood fest  in front of the ocean. ❤

And they got to look around and explore in the Skeleton Wreck part of the ocean..

We ended the day with a relaxing hot spring experience at Maquinit Hot Spring.

I’m glad I have my ❤ with me all throughout.

TRAVEL: CORON DAY 1


Alright! If you have been following my life thru this blog, we have this annual out of town trip with my college friends and whoever are plus ones are. HAHA. You’ll meet a new one in this blog.
This year, we went to Coron since we haven’t visited the resort of Tandem, one of our friend. It has been so stressful at work so I was really looking forward to this trip. And finally, here we are.
We boarded at Terminal 4, which is a bit near my house. The three of us are early but 1 couple were really late and we almost missed the cut off.

By the time we land, we were greeted by a placard of Ana and Friends & definitely some rainfall. The van was spacious enough and the ride was less than 30 minutes from the airport. Whew. I wanted to sleep but the road is being fixed so it was obviously bumpy.

We got there by around 2pm, dropped our bags, freshen a bit, toured the resort and finally settled for some lunch at about 3pm. Deadpan Hungryyy!

We ordered the following:
Bagnet with Pinakbet, Stuffed Squid, Kilawin and Sisig. ❤ All from the in-house kitchen of Sophia’s Garden Resort. And did I mention that everything was absolutely delicious? ❤

Since we only have the late afternoon to ourselves,
Our first stop: Mt. Tapyas
Dreadfully climbed 700 steps to the top. Whew. If you’re worried about slippery mud and soil, don’t fret. There’s stairs to save the day. BUT remember the magical pull of gravity, weighing down all your strength, every carbs is put to good use. But man was I so tired!

There’s no better way to enjoy the view than to share it with friends and  the most important person in your life.  After a very tiring two hours of our lives, we head to The Viewdeck Grillhouse.

After this glorious dinner, we head back to the resort and the biggest surprise of my life was waiting for me. My future, is waiting for me. ❤ (due for another post).

But before we went to sleep, we struck out a few songs, some soju and a lot of laughter. ❤

One of the best nights. ❤
