May I?

Because Uncle Anthony was coming to Melbourne for a short while, I decided to take the opportunity to set up a dinner with him and Auntie Clara.  It was meant to be a secret one, and I was to take them to the SGS favourite eatery: Shira Nui.  How Steph actually found out was when i was talking to her on the phone and Uncle and Auntie were on Skype.  As I was chatting with Steph over the phone, she suddenly mentioned that her Dad on Skype wanted to talk to me.  Then she held her phone to her home computer…

Is the dinner still on?“, asked Uncle.

Hesitantly, I replied, “… … yes.

Then, Steph asked: “What dinner?  …. Oh!

And so Steph joined us three for dinner.  I grasped Steph’s hand rather tightly when I finally asked her parents after the main meal (and before dessert):

It’s been 18 months and as you know it’ll be another 18 months when we plan to get married.  So I would like to officially ask: ‘Do I have your permission to have Stephanie’s hand?

Uncle: “Okay lah!

Auntie: “Just make sure you look after her.  In that case, I’ll also say, ‘Okay lah!’

Hehe…. how funny!  So yep, I guess from now on Steph will keep asking for the ring – and probably expecting it during one of my monthly R&R trips…
