Propose 2.0

April 29, 2009

It’s been 1 month since i propose, i been plan to blog about this whole proposing process but couldn’t squeeze out some time until today , let’s hope i still remember every detail.

My plan came out very last minute, although i have prepare the basic 3 thing to propose  – flower , ring  and prepare to kneel down, but i know i must think of something special for my gf and the answer is using facebook to propose.

There are 3 major reason why i choose facebook

  • I been research on facebook new feature public profile for some time due to my office work.
  • My gf and i both spending quite some time on facebook and it seem like no one propose on facebook yet ?
  • We know each other through MIRC which is something popular on the web during the old day, i think facebook should be something popular on the web for now , which is quite meaningful for both of us.

So my plan is actually create a page with some of our photo and mass sending to all our friend , asking them to leave their wish and greet for me, because of this i even ban my gf to using facebook for that two day.

the process starting not very smooth, since a lot of people not really know what they need to do when viewing a public profile, they don’t know they should join as fan in order to post something and the time is running short , so i posted some help on my twitter and even getting the famous mrbrown to help , but since i m not a power twitter user , it doesn’t really help much, but i really appreatiate some of the twitter friend retweet it.

the next day which is the actual day , with fully prepare i sneak back home to give my gf surprise , using the 3 basic item + the power of facebook page and all the wishing and greeting from “fans” , my gf finally say yes ! Both of us go through every word that posted by fans , some of them even posted some love song video to greet us , which is very touch.

There are some local media contact me in order to interview, but i rejected . The answer  i give them is ” I m doing this for my special one, not for the media , thanks” and this the last strike that i give my gf which nearly make her cry.

    Interesting proposal! Although I don’t really know how it works..

    It’s a good idea to jot down your proposal story as early as possible actually.. ‘cos as time passes by, the details become fuzzy. I wrote my proposal story nearly 1 yr after I proposed and I struggled to write the story.

    Anyway, congrats! 🙂
