Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?
After a “little” bit of prodding from friends, family, Ngoc, and a number of strangers, Kris planned the proposal on a rooftop in Austin. Ngoc is very good at ruining his surprises, so Kris let Ngoc plan the entire day, biding his time until the proposal. The rain forecast also worked out, as the storm that was expected, got delayed until the next day. While Ngoc was in the shower, Kris quickly set up the ambiance on the roof with candles, rose petals, strung up lights (from help by the Airbnb host) and a photo book filled with their memories together. Ngoc heard Kris rustling around but fortunately for Kris, his excuse was valid. When Ngoc got up there, she still wasn’t 100% sure since it was a late Valentine’s Day gift, but when she turned the last page of the book, Kris popped the question. Unfortunately (or fortunately), Ngoc doesn’t remember anything Kris said other than, “Will you marry me?”
