On my birthday, Jesse asked if I wanted to take a morning stroll at East Coast Park and I gladly agreed. We were walking by a construction site when he told me he wanted to take some photos there. I felt confused as the sea view was blocked by the cranes but went along with what he wanted anyway. Then Jesse asked me to sit on a bench and stopped a passer-by. He asked that stranger to help record a video on his phone as he proposed. I later realised it was the same bench we’d sat on during our first date.
