When can you say that a couple is engaged? Take me and the boyfriend for example. There was no formal proposal of marriage. He didn’t ask me if I would marry him, and he hasn’t given me an engagement ring. But we both know that we will marry each other, and in fact, we have already started planning for it to happen next year.
Are we engaged then? Instead of calling him the boyfriend, should I now be calling him the fiance? Betrothed? Haha.
Do you know anyone in the Philippines who actually threw an engagement party? None of my friends or cousins did. It’s not uso here. I guess even ‘proposing’ and the giving of bejeweled engagement rings have also been just a recent phenomenon, probably only started happening in the country in the past twenty years or so. Diba? Do your parents have an engagement ring? Mine don’t. I don’t even see their wedding bands, lol.
It would probably be nice to have someone throw us an engagement party. I could just imagine the wonderful engagement gifts we could get! haha. 🙂 Those Lady Gaga earbuds would look so nice with my S phone. Really. 🙂 Wait, I don’t need an engagement party to ask for gifts, my birthday’s coming up in a few days! Weeee!
Anyhoo… I’m feeling a bit under the weather today. I woke up this morning after a very long (take 15 hours!) sleep, but I didn’t feel rested at all. It hurts to swallow and my head feels a bit heavy. Hay. I shoulda been up at 5am to walk with my dad, woke up at 10:00am instead. My dad was long gone and was already at work. 🙁
Ohwell. I’ve got other blogs to update, and photos to process. 🙂
