My friend, Zett had been planning a surprise proposal to his girlfriend, Yeng for months. I felt especially honoured to be invited to this intimate family affair. It turned out not only to be a very special day for Yeng and Zett, but also for me as it fuelled my desire to capture love moments that can be treasured for a very long time, and a tangible form of special memories for people to tell stories to their future generations.
When we got there, the boat was beautifully decorated with pastel-coloured balloons. We tricked Yeng for thinking that we were celebrating someone's graduation. As we rode halfway across the river, the boat slowed down and the proposal began. There was no trace of sea-sickness in the groom-to-be's face as he pulled out the ring, and she said yes! (after multiple attempts of convincing her that it's all real).
