He bought a wedding ring before i said yes.
In the movies, you can always see some cheesy scene where the guy would be dressed in a suit,getting down on one knee, proposing at the most romatic spot in the world. But yeah,that didn’t happen to me. In my traditional culture,it is normal for the couple to meet the family first,followed by ‘merisik’ to discuss about wedding preparations and later on, the couple and maybe with the future mother in law would go buy a ring together. But yeah, that didn’t happen to me either.
Instead it was on a random night, we just arrived from perak to kl. At the time, we were just close friends,nothing more. Maybe the first few sparkes of love had ignited but that was about it. Getting married was way out of my mind,not now,not in the near future atleast.
We were wandering around finding a place to eat when i spontaneously walked into a jewellery store. It was like i was hypnotized to walk in. My eyes were transfixed to this one ring and i gasped at how beautiful it was. Without even realizing it, i said out loud, “Omg,i want this as my wedding ring someday!” He looked at me and asked, “Do you really like it?” “Like it?are you crazy?I love it!” my eyes still infatuated by it.
“Then why wait for someday,why not today?” kachinggg! 💸💵💰The next thing I knew, he was a few thousand dollars short, and I had a wedding ring that I didn’t need.💎💍
My heart pounded so hard,i felt i was going to die. Owh no! 😨What have i done?! This guy probably just finished his whole life savings for this ring! And here i was, unsure of even wanting to marry him. I mean i’ve only known him for a few months, what if he was a psycopath! 👺👹😱Besides, he has only met my parents once,what was i supposed to tell them. Was i supposed to just call my mom and say,”hye mom,its your youngest daughter,and yeah,i just got a wedding ring”. My thoughts were racing, i wondered if we could re-sell it,how was i to tell this poor thing, “hey look,remember that ring you bought for me, em,could we give it back,and can you like give me a few months,no,a few years to think,then maybe i would marry you,and then mayybee we can buy a new ring.”
But instead,i kept quiet. I just can’t believe how random and silly I was. I requested to go to Dip&Dip. I needed that chocolate fix. I needed to sit down. I needed so many thing else,but i did not,i repeat,i did not need a wedding ring! I felt dizzy,you know,that feeling when you think you just made a big mistake.
As we walked out the shop,he noticed i was extremely quiet. “what’s wrong?” he asked. And without waiting for an answer, he got down on one knee, (kat depan Dip&dip,di mana org rmai lalu lalang😤) and said, “Will you marry me?”
That night, i finally said…….YES !
And that kids, is how I met your father.😍
******* a few months down the road,i asked him how he had the guts to buy a ring without knowing if i really wanted to marry him. His answer was simple, he just knew i would say I DO.🙌
