Rewind 7 years ago…
I was dating Beamer and he decided to pop the question on Valentine’s Day. For fear of sounding cheesy (hmmm, not a big fan of cheese!) here’s what happened that day. And the days after that.
Picked him up at the airport.
Checked-in at Splendid-ville (Thanks to Magesh, no thanks to JV!)
That night, he proposed and we went out with friends to celebrate at the Irish Village. Which was followed by night cap with friends at our Apartment-hotel.
The next day, Henry took this photo before we went to have a post Valentine’s Afternoon Tea at Burj Al Arab:
After that we stroll at Souk Madinat Jumeirah before heading to Emirates Mall:
That night, Maureen and Emman dropped by for yet another night cap aka booze-fest:
(I was beyond exhaustion and looking back, damn! I have a permanent double-chin! LOL)
The next day, we met with Amor and went to Old Souk and Bastakiah:
After an exhausting day, we went back to Splendid-ville (not the real name of the Apartment-Hotel) and changed (in a hurry) to go to our Dinner date.
Of course the next day, we have to buy booze and Danda and her Bro went with us for the “joy-ride”
Here’s the Engagement Party they gave us:
Our guests are closed friends and The GC (Gay Council)
The next day, we have to go to Oman (a whole different country!)
If you know me too well, you will know that I can sleep anywhere. I’m borderline narcoleptic.
If you are in Dubai, the desert safari is a must!
That night, we went back to Splendid-ville and went with Beamer to the Airport. It was a short, fun-filled trip he made just to propose.
That vacay, started and ended at DXB airport. Sealed with a Xx.
This year, to celebrate our Anniversary, we will go to Portsmouth, New Hampshire for 2 nights. What’s in NH? I don’t really know. But with the Hubsy on my arms, frankly, I don’t really care. For as long as I have this gentle bear with me, my heart is always full of love.
Happy Valentine’s Day to y’all. May love be the center of your life. Xx
PS: Soon (or maybe next Valentine’s Day) I will share never before seen photos during my church wedding in the Philippines. And maybe videos too. Keep smiling everyone! Xx
