After my Lychee Martini, Misibis Bay, Part 3.
Our first dinner in Misibis Bay was truly romantic. Candles were lit and soft music was playing (Kenny G to be exact), in the background. Cheesy ba?
The chef prepared something special for honey and I. The soup was simple, delicious and it warmed up the tummy for what's to come.
Chicken wrapped in pandan leaves, beefsteak tagalog and Dory fish in chili sauce.
We were overloaded with dessert. We had ube pannacotta, chocolate cake, leche flan and jackfruit turon with vanilla cream topped with pistaccio.
I had a Buko Lychee Martini and honey had beer.
Over drinks, I asked AG to go back to the room to get some cash for tipping the super awesome waiter. When he got back, he told me to close my eyes. Thinking it was another birthday gift, I giddily obeyed and shut them and clamped my hands together, much like a little girl would when promised a surprise. My lychee martini was already taking its effects.
He then told me to give him my right hand.
At this point, tears just came out freely and no matter how hard I tried to control myself, I was shaking and crying like a child. Our waiter stayed away, probably thinking that we are fighting. It took me about 4 minutes to control myself and calm down. I gave him my right hand slowly but surely. I KNEW this was going to be a JUL B. DIZON ring. Hahaha. I also knew that I have set my standards with Ginny and Lucille years ago. so they are responsible for living up to my expectations. Poor AG. But listen, I am at the workshop everyday of my life. I check on what's being worked on. I knew the line up of works to follow. I had no idea that this order even existed.
My eyes were still closed when I felt the ring go in. I kept them closed until I was mentally ready to see and realize what was going on.
And then, I opened them. His hand was still on mine. When I saw it, I nearly fainted. It was so much better than what I hoped for.
I cried....more than you will ever know. I miss my Mom. I am crying now, as I am telling you this. It's a mixture of utmost joy and sadness. I need her for this. I want her to be here. I need to share with her my happiness.
To AG, this is the best effect a martini has ever had on me. Thank you and although I already said it in person, my answer is, I love you therefore, YES.
Before shutting our eyes to sleep, I had to take another photo.
