on 22 to 28 march 2009 i went to manado together with my fiancee, there we gathered up with my soon-to-be sis-in-law with one of her friend. me and him planned to get some recommendation letters to do our compulsory work there, as well as holiday, and we also planned to learn scuba diving ;)

i love beach and sea sooo much since i can't even remember, and last year when i went for a holiday (also in march) in manado, i already fell in love with its sea... especially the view of bunaken island, above and below sea level. but last year all i can do was snorkeling, and i'm sure diving will be much more exciting!!

me, him, and his sister spent 4 days to complete our open-water course, on our 1st and 2nd day we learn the theories in class and practice in the swimming pool, but on 3rd and 4th day we went to the "real" class, the sea... and just as i thought before, it was much much moooooore exciting!! here some of the pics taken on our 3rd and 4th day, enjoy ;)

*the greatest birthday gift ever...

12 march 2009 was my 24th birthday, and it was 2 days after, on 14 march 2009, his family came to my house, brought a couple of rings--one of'em sparkled with a diamond in the middle--as the proof of our pre-vow. and there i am, waiting in flooded happiness when i saw him extraordinarily handsome--well, he is always handsome to me... teehee ^^--wearing a black tux--which i almost couldn't believe it, he wore a tux!!--with a white flower buttoniere accompanied by his family. including his sister that came all the way from s'pore to witness our engagement. i was happy... he was happy... our family was happy... everyone's happy!! :D all i can remember is that i slept that night with a smile in my face...
