I have managed to keep a secret. That has to be the ultimate goal I achieved this year.
For a little over a month, my brother Ted has been running around and scouring for the perfect engagement ring for the love of his life, Aidel. They’ve only been dating for a little under a year and well, what can I say? The heart wants what it wants and it wanted a good woman.
So we scoured at Etsy, at Instagram, our local jewelers, and finally, with the help of Brother 1 Paolo (who would’ve thought?!) we managed to find the perfect ring for her.
I remember the night before he popped the question. He said he was nervous, what if she says no. My mother and I scoured for every single encouraging word that would lift his spirits but in the end, he only needed to hear one thing:
Tatay would want you to be brave.
And he was.
So atop the Prism Plaza beside the SM Mall of Asia, inside the House of Wagyu Smokeless Grill, he popped the question.
And she hasn’t stopped crying since. Well, she has but you know what I mean. :)
Let’s get ready for a December wedding, shall we? :)
Oh Sir Boy, we miss you oh so achingly.
