'Be creative and full of surprises since we only get to ask our partners once'
In 2013, Steff Someda was offered a cup of coffee “care of Sir Jerick” at a new café she frequented near her place of work. “Little did I know that this man would become the love of my life,” Steff said.
Jerick Chua originally wanted to propose in La Union in 2020 but travel restrictions and Steff’s busy schedule made it too difficult. He devised a new plan and luckily, a friend invited them to visit his rest house in Tagaytay for the weekend and that set Jerick off to finalizing his proposal. He worked with an event stylist to transform the home and made sure they were out and about Tagaytay while it was being setup.
After dinner, the party headed back to the home and Steff was made to ride in a friend’s car that had the child lock on to stall her. “When we arrived at the house, I pretended I had to go to the washroom and quickly headed to the proposal spot where I waited for her,” Jerick said.
“My mind went blank! I had absolutely no clue he would be proposing that day and that entire moment was very overwheling. I really thought I was dreaming! Thank God it wasn’t just a dream,” Steff said.
“Be creative and full of surprises, since we only get to ask our partners once,” Jerick advises. We want to make it memorable for them. Don’t hesitate to ask for help from your friends and family. They will help you happily to see you move to the next chapter of your life.”
