Going back to Sentosa where they had their first date 10 years ago, Ming Jun surprised Yee Ching with a beautiful and heart-warming proposal with their close friends in attendance. 

How did your love story start?

Ming Jun and I were from the same primary school but we only became classmates and friends in secondary school.

In secondary three, I confessed my feelings to him via instant messanging and we’ve been together since!

How was the proposal like?

After dating for close to 10 years, Ming Jun finally popped the questions.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the proposal to be such a fun-filled and touching one. (For more touching proposals: TRUE LOVE! 15 HEARTFELT MARRIAGE PROPOSALS WE LOVE)

Our close friends were there to witness the occasion, and for those who weren’t able to make it, their well-wishes were recorded in a video Ming Jun put together.

On the day of the proposal, I was tricked by my girlfriends into thinking that we were going for a staycation in Sentosa.

When we got there, the first part of the surprise was a video montage of the pictures we’ve taken during our dating days.

I was then blindfolded and guided to another room which had been decorated with balloons, candles and fairylights. I was also surrounded by candles in the shape of a heart on the floor.

Ming Jun made his grand entrance and went down on one knee.

I was so nervous that I mistakenly gave him my right hand instead of my left!

I would never forget that fluttery, joyous feeling in my gut when he placed the ring on my finger.

Ming Jun shared with me later that he was so relieved when I nodded my head.

He chose to propose at Amara Sanctury Resort as Sentosa holds a special meaning to the both of us as Sentosa was where we had spent our first date, strolling along the beach after a dinner at VivoCity.

Just as excited as I was to be his girlfriend at 15, I am now also excited to spend the rest of my life with him, my better half.

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