Share your proposal story with us and stand to win a lunch buffet for two at Swissotel Merchant Court worth over $120++.

Jun Jie whisked Charmaine on a surprise trip to Sweden for her birthday, and proceeded to surprise her even more with a heart-melting forest proposal.

How did your love story start?

We were classmates in secondary school and we have known each other since we were 13.

Since then, we have been the best of friends and each other’s confidante – through ups and downs and other failed relationships.

We started dating only during our university days and it has been nine years since we took the plunge from best friends to lovers.

How was the proposal like?

Jun Jie has taken me on many adventures and we find every opportunity possible to travel and see the world.

Our most recent adventure was most unexpected for me.

It was my birthday weekend and I had expected it to be a simple celebration with my loved ones.

Instead, a few days prior to my birthday, I found myself sitting in the middle of Stockholm, questioning how I could have been so blessed to have found a soulmate in this lifetime.

Jun Jie had whisked me away in the middle of a work day from my office – with a vegetable bouquet no less, and the question, “Will you travel with me?”

With only an hour to pack and work left undone, I found my dazed self on a flight to Sweden!

It was a trip long in the making, with Jun Jie enlisting the help of so many wonderful friends and my mum.

Finally, on my birthday, while we were hiking through the most enchanting Swedish forest, Jun Jie got down on one knee and my answer was most definitely, yes.

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