Jason Chuck, product marketing manager of Google, shared during the press launch of Google Mapmaker that he was in the Philippines for two reasons: (1) to get engaged; and (2) for the launch of the Google Mapmaker.
The Twisted Wedding Planner then grabbed the chance to ask Jason about the kilig side of his trip and he excitedly recounted how he planned the engagement. Jason said that he originally wanted to relive the first time he met his fiance - on the mountaintop during a snow boarding trip. He was set on doing that but unfortunately the season for snow boarding has ended.
There isn't that much map data yet in the Philippines, but Jason heard a lot about Palawan, so he decided to go to El Nido. The trip proved to be an exciting one and they both went on a sunset hike. Jason's girlfriend had no idea that he had set-up a romantic nook at the top.
"It wasn't so romantic you know since we were all sweaty and tired after the hike, and it rained a bit so the sunset I was hoping for wasn't there, but things went well," Jason shared.
It's so heartwarming to hear how guys go through all the trouble to prepare to get engaged. It is, after all, the start of a whole new chapter in one's love story.
Thanks Jason for sharing your story!
