Hi guys! How are you? I hope you all in good condition. On August 22, Saturday finally I am officially engaged with my boyfriend. We were so nervous that day because it was the first time our parents met each other virtual. Why virtual? You know because of COVID-19 my boyfriend's parents couldn't come to Jakarta because their lives outside Jakarta, in Dumai and the second reason we concern about their health in the middle of this pandemic so we both agree to celebrate engagement virtual by video call.

We were so nervous at that week and 3 days before the big day, I and my boyfriend decided to take fasting. We pray and surrender everything in God's hands. I was so nervous and doubts suddenly and I prayed D-1 (tomorrow is the day) I prayed like this "Dear God, please let me know if You are here if You are blessed us, be with us, and You are joining with us in the middle of our day, please give me a sign Lord." In the middle of the night, I couldn't sleep but I remember I got a verse that always repeats again and again until our big day, this is the verse "This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalm 118:24 (NLT). At that time, I don't know how but I know that was God's sign for us. Even though only virtual, but on our big day everyone was so joyful and we felt peace at that time.

Last but not least, we want to thank you for all relatives and friends whose support and pray for us. Thank you so much!

The outfit that I wore. I forget what's the store name but I remember that was a cheap dress I bought at Pasar Pagi Mangga Dua for celebrated Chinese New Year last January and now I wore it for our big day.

This is my engagement ring and it is from Indah Nam
