Mission JHQ

Managed to get home to rest for a while after the retreat before heading out again for an important night! And that’s of course our dearest Shrine’s birthday celebration! xD

After missing his birthday for at least the past 2 years (and he complained every single time about it), I was determined to be present this time! Din Tai Fung for dinner~!

Spotted the cute crab there? Because it’s crab roe xiao long bao! ❤

Super full but still gotta try the mango pudding that Queena raved about!

Then off for our real mission of the night… So Shrine’s birthday was actually just a smokescreen to get everyone together and most importantly, to trick le Queen to the actual venue where le King had been waiting!

Le King aka Gui was absent for Shrine’s birthday dinner on the pretext that he had to meet a client, but in actual fact, he had been waiting at Gardens By The Bay since we even started our dinner! We had already planned to visit GBTB to see the light show after the dinner, so there wasn’t much hiccup in getting Queena there~

But who knows, our biggest mistake actually started from the entrance. First of all, Gui’s phone was flat, so he had to go through Joseph and the other guys, who were with him all the time, to coordinate with us. Shrine ended up being the one from our group coordinating with Gui’s side, hence we trusted him, and he was also the only one who recce the place with Gui few weeks ago.

So when Shi Min said the entrance was on the right and Shrine said it’s the left, we trusted the latter and thought that Gui didn’t want a crowded place to propose, so maybe he chose a “secret place“~ But who knows after a long walk in a part of Gardens By The Bay I’d never been to before, we realised Shrine brought us on the wrong way -_-”

And the aimless walk continued for the next 45 minutes because Shrine did not know where is the place Gui was referring to! First he said it’s near the dome, and when we finally found the dome, there was no sign of Gui.

So we continued walking towards the light show area, which was what we were supposed to come and see, but that’s not where Gui was hiding and our real motive was to find him! Thank goodness Queena did not suspect at all when we walked away just when the show started! Zzzzz. (Ugly pictures taken while pretending to be interested.)

I was getting impatient and worst of all, I was not being in any control of the whole situation but just being brought around aimlessly. Both an Aries’ weaknesses – impatient and not being in any control of what’s going on -.- And most of the time, Shrine was walking way ahead of us, trying to find “the place“, while buddy was trying to be himself by always delaying us, like wanna go here or there, wanna buy this or that. But I desperately wanted to find Gui because they had been waiting for the past 3 hours and I was afraid that Queena would start to get suspicious if we continue walking around like this!

Finally got hold of Shrine and this time, he said it’s near the floating baby. I brought them to where the floating baby is because I remember seeing it when I went with NDPeeps, but that’s still not where Gui was hiding!

Then somehow, the location changed from the dome to the floating baby and now a bridge with fountain at the side -.- I don’t know which part of the communication went wrong but it seriously felt like a hide-and-seek game. Not to mention, I was rolling my video since we stepped into the garden and by the end of the night, I had like more than 10 videos of us just walking around! FML.

So we went around trying to find the bridge instead, which Shrine’s “friend” claimed that it’s a beautiful bridge, that’s why we had to spend the whole night finding it. And suddenly the most unpopular Shrine had so many calls coming in in a night! Who wouldn’t get suspicious?! Yet Queena still wasn’t!!!

Then we finally arrived at the bridge after the 45 minutes walk… But of course, we did not see Gui and gang again.

The damn fugly fountain

We waited at the bridge, taking random pictures, trying to delay time while Shrine did all his communication to locate the other group. At this point of time, Queena even asked if we wanna go back to the game stalls area because buddy mentioned that he wanna play games earlier on -.- Aren’t we already playing one here???! And it was so obvious that we were waiting for something to happen!

Taking group photos to delay the time further~

It turned out that Gui and gang were hidden further away at the bridge’s extension because it was least crowded there and the egoistic boy didn’t wanna do it in front of the public -.- The extension was pretty dark and it was obvious that there’s nothing there, hence we had a hard time convincing Queen to go over. She even wanted to wait for us at the main bridge while we go “explore” the dark extension! FAINT~!

After much persuasion, we finally got her up on the bridge extension! I couldn’t quite see anything because it was pretty dark, and at a point we even thought we were on the wrong extension (there were 2 sides)! Thank goodness Gui and gang popped out before we decided to U-turn, if not it would be yet another detour…Zzzzz.

So it turned out that they were really near the entrance, just that we went in from the wrong “entrance” from the start! Everyone couldn’t stop cursing and swearing at Shrine after that for the poor navigation…hahaha! But seriously, what’s up with guys and their never-fix-a-proper-location recce in the first place?! Everything was arranged and decided on the day itself even though we planned this weeks ago -.-”

But at least, Queena was surprised because she totally did not expect this! (Though her first reaction was, “你 siao 啊?!” LOL) I was surprised too because with so much hiccups, I thought any girl would have suspected something!!! First it was to catch the light show which we brushed shoulder off, then it was all the aimless walking just to find a stupid bridge, like who would believe?!

Apparently, Queen buy it all because her egoistic boyfriend had been telling her that he will never propose in public…hahaha! Thank goodness she was still a blur queen after all and at least she was a bit dressed up for the outing too, because I will be so embarrassed to be proposed in slippers!!! xD

I think Gui was damn nervous and paiseh because he just kept saying “I Love You” while Queena just kept laughing non-stop because she said if she doesn’t laugh, she would cry…LOL!

And when asked “Will you marry me?“, Queen kept laughing and answered, “Okay“. I was like, “You’re supposed to say I do, not okay!” And then she said okay again the second time…hahahaha!!! Think she was still overwhelmed by the whole thing xD

And finally, it’s a wrap~!!! 😀 Still considered a successful one since Queen was surprised! Haha! (But really could have been better with proper planning!!!)
