We consider 2011 as our year as blessings pour down on our way continuously since the year began. Gil officially asked me to marry him January during our 3rd year Anniv trip at Kinabuhayan Café. The wedding was supposedly December of this year, or the same January 18th but seemed like God has a better plan for us, as always.
February was a busy month spent with work and preparation for our 1st time out of the country trip, Singapore-Malaysia second week of March. Good thing we were sponsored by Gil’s best friend Dhel and so we had free accommodation along with unlimited treats and freebies (Yey!). I only stayed for 5 days because of work while Gil stayed for two weeks, the first week to accompany me strolling around and the last week to apply for work. He started sending out applications after I left Singapore and during that one week, he got the job! He went back to Pinas to resign from his almost 10 years job at Hitachi Plant Technologies, Ltd. and went back to Singapore 2nd week of April, after we have completed all our wedding requirements.

And so I was left alone preparing for the wedding, earlier than planned as he wanted me in Singapore with him the soonest (malungkot daw kz mag-isa). I was then at Shell Oil Company (SBSC) and the flexible time really helped me to still attend to some wedding errands as meeting suppliers and the like. Yes, it was indeed wedding-in-a-bliss!
My groom arrived to Pinas Friday, the day before the wedding (parang guest lng! Lol!). As soon as he arrived, we went out to buy our wedding ring along with his long sleeve, neck tie, shoes and hanky. Kami na ang super prepared! Lol!
The wedding was held Saturday night June 18, 2011. It was not a perfect wedding, neither the kind of wedding we have planned and imagined, but we owned that night as we share our vows and love with our dearest ones. Nothing could ever be more romantic in our lives’ journey than that not-so-perfect not-as-planned night. It was not anymore me and Gil, but US—as one!

Two days after the wedding, we flew to Singapore and started our lives together as married couple. Gil has his work and I got mine two months after.
...and we live happily from then on onwards! ^^
