I'm getting engaged today. Formally.

It'll be a traditional Chinese engagement which, if you really need to know, doesn't sound as strange or exotic as it does. It will be my family meeting her family over a meal, followed by an exchange of gifts. And that's it.

Okay, so there'll be plenty of hopia and other goodies, but that's about as Chinese as it gets.

I should be nervous or excited, but surprisingly, I'm not. I feel...normal. Like this is the most natural thing in the world.

And happy, too.


  1. Congrats Dom.
    I remember, chinese style is not exotic. but in some other places/society. pabongahan lang. with pig legs for adobo etc. and lots of jewelries for display.
    take care always.
