What went behind James & Maybeline’s Proposal


I know I should have started working on this post for the longest time but I just can’t find the time to sit infront of my desktop every night.

How it all began:

We had a staycation at The Quincy Hotel and everything felt normal because we have staycation reviews very frequently. The only different thing was I had an event to attend that evening and will be away for 3 hours.

Obviously, I felt guilty because it was a staycation but I had to leave him alone so a very good brother, TJ, accompanied him throughout. Little did I know that they were just putting on an act.

He sent me to Casio Headquarters to gather with the other influencers as the meeting point was quite near our hotel. We then left the place, dressed in bridesmaid dresses. He kept joking about us looking like Jie Meis for someone’s wedding. I guess he was kind of dropping hints already? Me being me, was oblivious of the words and more concern about my shoes. I had wanted to wear heels but I picked comfort over beauty.



We left in a Limousine Party as it was Casio TR80 Limousine Party! I heard that it was a great hit in Japan and Casio is a Japan brand soooooo… the lucky us were quite privilege to try it! There were a few “stations” where we had to alight and take photos from Chijmes, National Gallery to this and that. They told me they will drop me off at my hotel after the event so obviously I didn’t suspect anything.

When we alighted back at the hotel lobby, I was busy looking for medication for Xinyi because of her headache so I did not even notice anything. It was also pretty normal for her to hold my hand because we are girly like that.

Who knows, as we started to walk down, I began seeing 1 or 2 familiar faces. Still nothing much yet until I saw James. The spotlight was turned on and there…. you can continue watching the story below:

Still…. don’t judge me. I know the shoes are pretty ugly…… 🙁

After everything, I realized the day itself was a beautiful lie. He had been planning for this months back. I don’t even have a single clue about it because he was with me almost every day – except for one when he had a conference to attend. The conference was fake too. He went out for a final meeting with his team.

There are a lot of people I want to thank here but I am most most grateful to TJ and William. William brought his lights from the office for him and he even held the light throughout for our photo taking session. TJ, for being a good liar, making me angry, happy, angry and happy again. He was so stressed throughout the planning and even after the proposal because I gave him quite a hard time on the video LOL.

I grabbed them from the influencers’ Insta Stories so pardon me for the quality.

All in all, I feel truly blessed and I am not sure what have I done to deserved all these. Thank you love, for getting our family members and friends down. (He forgot to ask my BFF along because he felt it was quite packed already 🙁 aahhhh). Nonetheless, thank you each and every one of you for the blessings. Not forgetting, The Quincy Hotel for the drinks and location, Casio Singapore for the surprise! 🙂

We are off to the next stage – Planning of Wedding Dinner, taking Bridal Photos etc…..

Couple Day Out 2 #jamesnmaybel

Another day out with J. But a more chillax one cause we were too tired from my work/his flight.

The night before, I told the caricaturist at ‪#‎lovenco‬ that I’ll be fetching my boyfriend at the airport the day after so he couldn’t make it for the event and he drew me this so that I can hold this while waiting for him at the arrival hall. So ‪cute!

Yeah! The boy got tanned and put on a little weight… lol

Not forgetting this pair of New Balance which I got him when he was in Australia. For people who are interested, I got it at New Balance Concept Store at Scape. Available in other colors too.

We wanted to go for some organic food near Rail Mall so we went up for some photos as well.

Rail Mall has seriously good lighting for photoshoot (and free parking too!!!)! Too bad we only did some selfies there. We wanted to avoid the harsh sun so we reached there about 5.30pm.

Other than one of the pictures, the rest of the pictures were raw and unedited. I like sunny days cause they give really gooood pictures. Couples who love exploring cafes can give cafe hunting a break and visit Rail Mall for some nice pictures together! 😉

If I were given a choice to make another casing for The Kase, I would definitely pick the picture below. Clear skin, good colors and happy looking.

I think J would agree with me on that. Yeahhhh, I know how cheesy and sticky we can get. Hahaha. Anyway, The Kase has portable battery and all as well. Do visit them at Ion!

I am seriously loving how the skin look under the skin. I don’t know who to thank, the make up, the skincare or Halley Medical Aesthetics.

I used to only like black, white and grey with minimal colors on me while J loves contrast. Right now… I am starting to love colors as well 🙂
