Wow, lapit na! I was a bit shocked when I saw my wedding countdown clock (a Christmas present by Pangs) , 100 days to go! how time flies! I remember waaay back in December when we started talking about it, and then the formal proposal on January 31st this year. It was one of our overnight workdays, so to keep us awake, we decided to go down at the back of the Enterprise building to smoke and rest for a while. I noticed he was a bit fidgety and when we sat down, he suddenly reached out in his pocket and pulled this beautiful, oriental box. He opened the box and pulled a ribbon and tied the ribbon to my ring finger. He pulled on the other end of the ribbon and then I saw it, this beautiful ring that shone in the darkness. I watched it travel along the looong ribbon and into my finger. Tapos, hindi na-shoot! Haha! Si pangs ang nagsuot saken tapos he asked “Will you marry me?” syempre, you already know the answer to that and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Ngayon, 100 days na lang, ang bilis! Feb palang nagpunta na kami sa NSDG, we wanted a wedding on December 10 at that time. When we got there, we found out that all the Saturdays and Sundays were booked from November to January. I was really surprised. I was thinking, ang eexcited naman ng mga ito. Yun pala, ganon talaga ang December-January weddings, parang business is booming sa mga church, hehe. So our wedding date has no significant meaning prior to this, it just happened to be the only available date for us. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise ‘cause it was much easier to break the news to our parents, when we told them we were getting married… ang script namin lagi “Next year pa po” (pero January naman, ano! The 30 days made a LOT of difference!) and when they were asked “Next year pa kasal nila!” hehe, we were able to break the news much, much easier.
I’ve missed talking about my wedding preps, ‘cause I’ve been worried about other things like my job application, our house that we can’t seem to buy, and other work related stuff (like finding my replacement which I still don’t have). Anyway, for the wedding preps, we now have our pre-cana certificate, thanks to Discovery Weekend. Tapos, shocks, wala na akong ibang update! Bwahahah! We will have a busy preps weekend though. On Saturday is our meeting with Swan again, and after that, our long overdue visit at NSDG to get the Banns, sample misalette, and other stuff that we have to inquire about, like flowers upgrade, priest stipend, etc. We also have to schedule (if necessary) our Canonical interview, I do believe we’d have to skip a day of work for that, ‘cause it’s only held every Wednesday morning.
We still don’t have invites, kulang pa nga kami ng isang ninang eh. Pasaway kasi boss ko sa Radix, hindi daw pala pwede. I understand naman eh, baka nga magtaasan kilay ng iba pag samin binibigay ang project dahil isipin nila special treatment kami hehe. Pwede makumpleto ang list if magtanggal kami ng isang ninong, kaya lang, nasabihan na namin lahat, baka weird pag bawiin namin, hehe!
My fourth fitting with Tet is on the 31st of October, tapos fitting ng Entourage is on November 19.
Just got off the phone with Roni.. CAI-STA na rin siya! Yahoo! Medyo usap-usap kami kasi she’s having problems with her hubby, Gilbert. Ayaw daw ni Gilbert umalis sa house ng parents nya, kaya si Roni, nauunsha-me. Dapat makausap yang si Gilbert para masapok, hehe. Kasi, lakasan lang naman talaga ng loob eh. Sabi nga ni Roni, kung hindi ngayon, kailan pa? I’ll pray for him na lang for him to come to his senses. Kwento ko keh Roni, sa COGEO nga meh mga row houses dun na tag 120 sq.m na 600-700 sq.m lang! Dapat kasama si Gilbert pag nagikot para maappreciate niya and maimagine nyang nakatira dun independently. Baka makatulong.
Anyway, thankful ako na hindi namin naisip ni Pangs na makitira sa mga magulang namin. TY God! Sige, dito muna. Babay!
