Khashiefah & Faaiez[dropcap color=”rosy”]3[/dropcap]0 March 2013, the day that completely knocked me off my feet unexpectedly. It started out with my fiance Faaiez De Kock picking me up for a picnic he had been wanting to do with me for awhile. As he works shifts, we schedule date days/nights to spend quality time together. A month prior to this he had told me he would be off that weekend and would like to take me on a picnic. Me always loving spending time with him was oblivious to everything that was happening and just took it as a normal day we spending together. He had picked me up the morning, we drove to one of our favourite spots in Cape Town, Steenbras Dam overlooking Gordons Bay Harbour and City. The weather was miserable but that clearly did not stop his plans, he had packed the picnic basket and blanket and went to our spot, because the weather was so crazy we unfortunately could not go to the spot he chose, but he improvised and made the picnic in the car. Let down the back seats, and set out the basket with all the goodies. He played all this romantic music which he had downloaded specifically for this day… We were chatting and having fun as we always do and I was really enjoying our “car picnic”. He had bought me my favourite sweets “smartie eggs” and asked me to eat some, me being me still oblivious to everything, ate one at a time, and he was just rushing me to finish it, but slowly for surely I was enjoying it, until eventually I got to the last one and there it was shining in the packet… The Ring… I immediately burst into tears, took it out and asked what this was… He took the ring from my hand, took out the ring box, put the ring in the box, got out the car (windy and all ), walked around to my side, went on his knee, gave me the most romantic speech ever and then asked ” will you marry me”… I could not stop crying and in the midst of it all said yes.He proposed on our favourite song “Fairytale by Liquid Deep” After all the tears and speeches, he took me for drinks and when I got to the restuarant all my closest friends were waiting there. He had planned everything secretly, inviting everyone, and all knew but me. 30March was definately a day I would never forgot, he completely took me by surprise and up until today continues to do so… We are now happily engaged for 2months and neither of us can wait to be married and spend the rest of our lives loving and surprising each other every day.
