Erna and Hardin met in the state library for the first time. You can say it was love at first sight.
They’ve added each other on Friendster and MSN Messenger and exchanged numbers. Hardin initiated their first conversation via text message during the first day of Raya.
Hardin met Erna’s parents for the first time. And invited her to an event.
Fast forward to 2017 after all the ups and the downs,going through the transition from highschool to universities, long distance, part time jobs,birthdays,anniversaries and everything that happened in between.
Erna and Hardin got pre-engaged (bertekul, a Sarawakian custom of asking both parents for the agreement of their union) (also known as engaged to others)
Both sides decided on a date for the wedding.
Full on wedding planning mode for both sides.
Hardin decided to plan a surprise proposal for Erna on her birthday eventhough they were already engaged, in order to make it more memorable and special.
The day we will officially become husband and wife.
