We started out pretty awkward when we first met. There was a monstrous racket outside the shop courtesy of the Water Company which made it difficult for us to talk, the airconditioner wasn't running properly and the shop was still undone - we just moved in that time. The general ambiance was therefore quite uncomfortable. I sketched outside the office and presented it to her in the fitting room :-) I wasn't really sure if there was a connection between us but she seemed to like the design. She didn't outright reject it but she did ask one thing -
" Uhmmm makinang ba yan? Hindi kasi ako si simple and elegant eh. Ako si budburan mo ng Swarovski ha! kasi di ba? bakit naman ako magve-veluz pa kung simple lang pala yung gusto ko?! :-)"

Ayyyyy hahahaha! I love her! and yes, I suddenly felt the connection :-)

Here she is on her wedding day -
