Aya and Mark
How We Met
We met 5 years ago, when he was a post graduate medical intern and i was a volunteer nurse in the same hospital. When he was rotated in the ward i was working, we talk a lot and soon after a month he asked me out and we started dating ever since. Then after 6 months he had to move back to New York to pursue his medical career in the United States and we have been in a long distance relationship for 5 years
How He Asked
He first proposed to me on the night he arrived in the philippines straight from new york,
with just the two of us on top of a roof deck restaurant with the city lights for a romantic view with possibly the most beautiful ring i have ever laid eyes on, i was crying the entire time he enumerated the reasons why he wanted to marry me, it was simple and the most romantic thing he ever did. i was very happy and i said yes and thought that was the end of it but then he decided to surprise me with a public proposal days after his first proposal.
during our trip to Batanes at the beach on Sabtang island with the help of our tour guide who climbed all the way on top of that cove holding a tarp saying ‘Will you marry me?’ with other tourist cheering us on while i was completely caught off guard with the public gesture, he then got down on one knee while i started laughing and crying at the same time and ask me again if i wanted to marry him, of course i said yes..again.
