Yang and Rommel's Breakfast at Tiffany's-inspired Proposal
How We Met: We met at an indie gig in Manila. I used to manage underground bands, and have been friends with a lot of indie bands since the early 2000s. My fiance, being new in the country, took a chance to see one of his favorite Manila-based indie band perform live, despite being alone since none of his new friends have the same taste in music as his. I happen to “return”to seeing my friends from indie bands perform again after 3 years of hiatus. That’s the night we met. My friend introduced me to my fiance but we stayed in separate tables. My friend and I accompanied him when we realized he went to the gig alone. He started talking to me and we just hit it off. We talked about music and we just enjoyed the conversation so much. After 3 years, he confessed that he was eyeing on me even before we got introduced.
Since then, we have gone to gigs, concerts, and festivals TOGETHER. We are forever a music fest couple.
How He Asked: How can you say no when he prayed to God every day that you would say yes? “I cannot take us back to Tempura in the Philippines, where we had our first date. So I hope this place is at least close. I feel like I have good luck with Japanese restaurants. Will you do me the honor to be my wife?”
