True enough, we are not officially engaged (until the ceremony itself) but we already scouted for our wedding bands. Particularly because Irman just want to have one platinum ring for both engagement and wedding. Gosh, he is so damn picky lor. In the end, we go back to the first shop he fell in love with. Not easy to find a male’s platinum wedding band, especially when he requested for a matte finishing. Shiny ones doest look that appealing on his finger!
The quest started few weeks back. We tried to go Vivo and survey (in and out all sorts of shops lor). After which, we head to ION and continue to search for his ring. At the same time, we decided to also look see for my wedding band too. I do not want to go through that ordeal of finding the perfect one. As for me, I knew what I wanted. The one that matched my engagement solitaire ring. We wanted to purchase at ION (the same place Irman bought the surprised engagement ring) but the branch was too damn crowded lor. Since we didn’t really get the attention from them, we decided to go back to Bob (back at Vivo on the following week). Booked an appointment with Bob – at least at Vivo, we get all the attention we want. Yes, aren’t we both attention seekers? Nola, just kidding.
So, he picked his and i picked mine. Done, it will be ready by May! Cant wait for it Irman’s engagement cum wedding ring to be ready because I had a hard time persuading him to put on a ring. After much deliberation, he succumb to my request (of course he has to right? I am always right!). But we compromised, he wanted just ONE ring. Unlike females, he can’t possibly be wearing two rings right? Hence, the search for his ring was painful but endearing too la. Cant believe that so much has happened between us – from just try try to get to know each other, to falling head over heels for one another, to travelling all over the world, to surprise proposal from a man i thought the word ‘romantic’ was never in his dictionary, to the ‘merisik’, from his family, to planning for our engagement, to planning for our wedding and just recently, we got our ballot number for our SBF application. If all goes well. we might get our unit in September 2018! That’s wonderful news, innit?
I wish that we will get everything figured out smoothly and as plan, insya’allah. For now, just keep up with our savings so that we get to wed (debt-free), own a house (lucky got CPF to supplement), find ID for renovation plans (insya’allah) and whatever (good) that comes along the way!
