Do you propose marriage in public or private?

Yesterday in the gym...



I was doing the weights, one, two, three...Then a male friend, D, walked over and popped this question,


No, no, he's not proposing to me lah...

D: "I got a question to ask you since you are a girl. Imagine lah..just imagine hor..your boyfriend is going to propose to you. Would you prefer he does it in public or private har? Have you ever thought of this question?"

Me: "Hmm...interesting, I've never thought of this question seriously..."

D: "No hor? Ya lor..You see that guy over there, he's planning to propose to his girlfriend. So he asked me for opinion."

Me: "Oooh...like that ar...I don't know wor..maybe I will prefer he proposes in private lah...I think it's more romantic gua.."

D: "Ya lor..at least the girl got chance to think mah, so many people looking and cheering, very pressured leh. Want to reject also easier gua..haha"

Me: "Haha..true also. But some people like the limelight loh..but let's say the girl agrees, then what's next ha? I suppose if you are proposing it in public say, over a dinner in the restaurant, then, then...how ah? very awkward wor..both of you sit down and continue eating? Ooo..not romantic at all leh...so potong steam."

D: "Ya wor..haha.."

Me:
"If you want to go public, can follow the example like the guy who proposed during the flight & AA airlines rewarded them with free return tickets to Phuket. Not bad mah. Or else, some years back, a rich guy paid to display his proposal on a very big banner on some building along Federal Highway. Lots of attention. Romantic also gua."

D: "Ooh..ya meh? Last time got a guy who paid the guy who operated the projector in the cinema to display his proposal on the movie screen before the movie starts. That one also ok gua.."

Me: "Oo..really? whoa.."

Hmmm... I think I prefer it to be a private occasion too. I definately hate seeing/hearing people cheering around.

anonymous - i dunno, how much carat is enough to make it looks blink blink enough on my fingers leh..? hmm...

amidrin - ppl cheering around can be fun lah, sort of bolster up the happy mood. just like a surprise bd party u guys did for me. pretty nice feeling, I would say. but that's a bd party, not a proposal lah :P
