The Proposal on My Birthday

Hello everyone! To be honest, I'm really bad at managing my time that I don't have time to write something. I'm so sorry that it took me so long to write this post as I was so busy, which is why I just have the time to update my blog today. I'd like to wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Thanks for all the support from my readers about my previous post. Thank you to all of you for reading my blog and follow my instagram or my blog. I feel so happy to share with you many things on my blog throughout this year. How was your week? Did you had a lot of fun on your party in Christmas's eve? Today I feel so excited! Wondering why? Please keep reading if you are interested in my post but if you are not interested in hearing the story, simply skip this post! =D
Today I'm gonna talk about my special day! There's a new surprise in everyday life that just show up, even more surprises are there for me like heaven or hell that open my heart so wide but I try to keep my chin up! I also couldn't thank God enough for all the blessings and miracle that happen to me this year! Time flies so fricking fast that another year is added to my age! Some of you may have read this from my Facebook or Instagram, today was my birthday (24th December 2015) and my boyfriend recently proposed to me and I accepted! Woohoo! I finally turned 28! I felt excited because being 28 means I have to be more mature, I wish for a good luck for years ahead, a better work and spirit, and all my dreams can come true!

Some of you have expressed interest in knowing how I was proposed to, so here I am sharing the story. For those who don't know, I an engaged as of December 24. My boyfriend and I have been together for several years. We were very serious from the start, recognizing that something was different about our relationship. We always talk about our shared future, marriage, children, work, building a house together almost constantly. He's a planner. I'm a doer. It's charming and fun. lol
Actually, I already knew that Oppa, my boyfriend and now fiance, was going to propose to me (probably on my birthday) because he told me he wanted to marry me! He had also regularly mentioned his intention to propose me in the near future, and given that my birthday was the most immediate significant event to come, so I knew that my birthday had some significance to him, and it was easy to guess that he was going to pop the question then. Hehehe. The only thing I didn't know was how exactly he was going to propose, I wanted to leave it as a special surprise from him to me. =D 
So December, 24 came! While our original plan was to spend the day out, and we will have dinner in the restaurant. But then, he suddenly called me Thursday afternoon to have a lunch together in his office, I don't think about it too much, and I just came over to his office. After we finished lunch, my boyfriend asked me to wait for him until he finish his work, so I decided to go on to the Charlie Brown Cafe and wait for him.
While waiting for my boyfriend, I ordered the Yuja cha (Yuja tea). Yujacha is a traditional Korean tea made from the citrus fruit yuzu. Yuja fruit is thinly sliced with its peel and combined with honey or sugar, prepared as fruit preserves or marmalade. It's fresh, deliciously sweet, tangy, and has a unique citron flavor and aroma. It's perfect for warming you up in the wintertime, and is full of vitamin C.
Ok, it's time to get back to the topic. For my birthday he gave me a full leather Coach bag and I absolutely LOVE it!
I just love the gift that he gave me. I don’t know how he found out what I needed but thanks a lot for the gift. I love you to the moon and back!
By far, the BEST gift he's ever given me! I really love this man and don't want to lose him. =D
Time went quickly and almost five hours later, he had finished his office work and he came over to pick me up at the Charlie Brown Cafe, and he took me back home, to my one room in Korea at about 6.30 pm. The surprises did not stop there! After we arrived at my one room, we got out of the car and what I thought were just put my laptop on the desk of my room before we go out to dinner. My boyfriend followed me into the room, I honestly didn't think a thing about it because it seemed normal to me. 
As soon as I reached my room, he told me to close my eyes so that I could not see, and he took me by the arm and led me into the room. He opens the door for me and he told me I could open my eyes, so when I opened them up I was so surprised and shocked but pleasantly surprised and excited. I couldn't take picture of every waking moment since my boyfriend have always fascinated me, but here are some of them that I managed to snap!
He surprised me with roses all over the entire room with colored balloons over the roof, and with music playing in the background.
Saranghae or I love you decoration balloons for my birthday and proposal.

In the middle of the room on the floor, he created a big heart with rose petals and in the middle have the ring. He started telling me how much he loved me and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. What he said really touched my heart.
He got down on one knee and took my breathe away as he asked me to marry him. I somehow, through the giggles and I started crying like a baby, said YES, and he placed the ring on my finger and then he kissed me! I have never been more happy in my entire life! It was absolutely the best proposal I could have ever asked for. I wasn't expecting much but who knew what would happen.

I'll never forget that night, it was 7pm and it's one of the most unforgettable moments of my life. Everything was perfect, and I couldn't believe how thoughtful the entire set up was, he truly out did himself on my birthday! Thank you for being a good boyfriend to me and you even made my birthday different.

My proposal ring from Oppa, and now on my ring finger. =D
I was actually surprised that he gave me roses because he had given me flowers not too long ago. I didn't want him to waste the money since flowers are highly commercial in Korea and hence quite expensive, but since he had already bought them, I could only graciously accept the roses and thank him for his lovely gesture.

Thank you for making my birthday even more special by sending the surprise birthday ice-cream cake with the earring hidden in a cake. Can you guess how many earring were there?

I finally found the pearl earrings, I was looking for everywhere. Thank you for the lovely earrings you bought me, they are great I love them!

What a beautiful earrings and lovely ring you got me. Thank you so much for all of the hard work you already did. I know I don't always remember to thank u specifically for everything what u did, but I do always appreciate it very much. Thank you so much for sticking by my side through thick and thin. You have truly shown me what real love means in a way that no one ever has. It means more than you'll ever know. I have no idea how I got so lucky to have the best boyfriend ever, but I am sure glad that I did! I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together showing the same kindness and love back to you. I love you and I always will. You are a great man, and I am very lucky to have you. I hope that you always know how much you mean to me!

He also gave me a yellow gold necklace for a birthday present.
Guys, I have to show you the necklace my boyfriend gave me! No one has ever given me anything like this before. It is so beautiful!
 I wear the yellow gold necklace my boyfriend got me for birthday.

"I am happy being with you!" What a cute Christmas card you gave me today. 

My oppa made a short movie of our journey and showed it to me on a cinema screen. This is so awesome but sorry guys, I am unable to upload videos to my blog because of some personal reasons.

Hey guys, just want to let you know that in my relationship everything is not easy but we willing to make it work, and it will. Because I don't think there's ever a right time to let someone you love go. If they mean something to you, you should fight through whatever comes your way! No relationship is perfect, we argue, we fight, and we even stop talking to each other at times. But in the end, the love will always be there. Sometimes I don't understand how when somebody says that they want you in their life, but they never make an effort to make you a part of their life. I guess it's something I'll never understand! 
Most of relationship ends because the people in it stop trying and give up. So in my opinion, what you need is someone who can understand you and wants put an effort for you and your relationship. No one said that finding "THE ONE" would be easy, its really a hardworking guys! Love is so incredibly messy. People around you can't comprehend why you do the things you do, or why you fight so hard for something that seems to cause you so much pain, because simply, they can't see and they don't understand love! 
What you don't learn is how hard love is. How much work it takes. How much of ourselves we have to put into it. How it isn't worth it until we are complete and utter idiots about it. Love isn't about fencing ourselves in feeling safe, feeling sure about the future. It's about scaring the crap out of every nerve in our body, but pushing forward anyway. Because all the fighting and all the tears and all the uncertainty is worth it!

I am so thrilled to have this opportunity to share my story because it was such a wonderful moment for me and thanks everyone for your congratulatory messages! I’ve already been receiving really touching messages from my friends. I hope others will have the inspiration to propose to their significant other in a beautiful way as well!

Well, I'm gonna stop writing until here and that's all that I wanted to share with you, if you guys have any thoughts please comment below. It's almost 6 a.m in the morning and I need to get some sleep since I will be going to church tonight. I promise I will blog more so please be patient! Thanks for reading, see you guys real soon!
