My cousin Chris was here in Philippines for Christmas, and a few days after our family get-together, we went to Cebu.
It was a special event, all of us on my mother’s side of the family, who could go, went with him to formally ask for Christine’s hand in marriage. Now, theirs is a special love story. Christo (his real name is Christopher, but we’ve always called him Christo growing up) had liked Christine for years and years, but their romance took a long time to be formalized. They were friends for most of it, until things finally fell into place.
Now, let me tell you, my cousin has the highest standards a guy ever had for a girl…I mean, really specific. We even thought that he was holding out for Miss Perfect. 🙂
In the end, he did get what he wanted (and so did she). 🙂
They’re getting married in July, and I think it’s going to be a wedding to remember.
