Birthdays + Surprise

September 23, 2016

I finally have time to compile our birthdays trip + his proposal.

Everytime when we travel by ourselves, budgeting is a struggle. But we love our stay in Phi Phi Island so much, even though we didn't get to spend much time in the room. It's not cheap compared to many other hotels, it certainly does not have the most strategic location but it's worth every steps climbing up the stairs to get to the room and it's definitely worth every pennies we paid.

Joe went for scuba discovery the next day. It's the very same boat I was on last year with Evon. I like that it's free and easy with less than 15 person on the boat. Lunch and fruits will be served, and you get to make hot coffee as much as you can drink. The boy took us to a hidden bay nearby. It's a small bay with lots of hermit crabs. The view looking out from the bay is simply breathtaking. We laid on the beach just relax. It felt as all of our worries and stress get washed away as the waves crash along the shore.

The Proposal

Koh Hong, where he kneeled down and popped the question, on his birthday.

I told him that if he ever going to do it, please make sure I have my make up on and decently dressed. And yet he chose the time where I have salty messy hair, completely barefaced, plump body with a mismatched bikini because I thought, who's going to look at me thoroughly and judge me anyway? T__T

It was raining when we arrived at Krabi mainland. But it all went well, of course! We had dinner at a hilltop restaurant to celebrate Joe's birthday. It was a very simple occasion, just us enjoying our early dinner, laughing and taking pictures while watching the sun goes down.

Krabi has always been a place that I hold dear to, it's the first place I travelled abroad by myself. I've been going back every year, it's like my comfort place. Now Krabi has become a place that's even more special to me.

Now.. here comes the wedding prep nightmares every soon-to-be bride is afraid of......
