Jack proposed to Sim Yee in the midst of laughter due to an unexpected situation during their romantic stay at Lexis Hibiscus at Port Dickson.

How did your love story start?

Jack and I met in 2015. I was in Malaysia then, while Jack is from Hong Kong.

We met through his best friend, Sunny – who had opened a café in Malaysia with his wife.

I was a regular there and one day, while I was at the café, Sunny passed me the phone with Jack on the line and that is how we first knew of each other.

After having spoken over the phone for a few months, Jack decided to pay me a visit in Singapore and we both fell in love at first sight.

We went through two years of a long-distance relationship before Jack proposed to me last year.

How was the proposal like?

Our proposal took place at Lexis Hibiscus in Port Dickson, during one of Jack’s visit to meet me as we were still doing long-distance.

We had plans to enjoy the small private pool in our room after dinner that night, and Jack had planned to propose to me then.

However, I was having a stomach-ache and told him to go ahead without me first while I visited the toilet.

What happened next was hilarious. When I came out of the toilet, I saw Jack rushing towards me from the bedroom, and because he wasn’t expecting me to be done so soon, I caught him in the midst of preparing our proposal!

He had managed to change to a formal shirt but was still in his shorts. Also, the camera had not been set up.

In his rush, Jack knelt down by the toilet area and said, “Please marry me!” instead of “Would you marry me?”

Before I could react, a certain smell wafted in from the toilet behind us and the situation got so awkward. I could tell Jack was trying not to breathe.

Both of us ran to the bedroom and started laughing over the unexpected situation. Of course, Jack still managed to wear the ring on for me after.

Our only regret was that there was no photo or video to capture the moment of our proposal due to Jack being caught off-guard.

It is still a precious memory to the both of us however, and to me, being married to someone you love is what matters most.

Thanks for sharing your lovely story with us and congratulations to you!
