Another Friday means another installment of SweetLove with Andrea. Today she's bringing some proposal ideas that are heartwarming and funny and simple and extravagant... Can we say, "YES!" now? Take it away, Andrea!
When you have found someone you would want to spend the rest of your life with, it is natural to be excited to dream about how your marriage proposal would be like. Hopefully, it is something you will only experience once in your lifetime, so you want it to be memorable. The only limit is your wild imagination. And budget, of course. Yesterday I asked my followers to share their wishful thinking, as well as how they actually got proposed, and here are eight funny, heartwarming marriage proposal ideas that will make your heart flutter and your mouth utter “Yes! Yes! Yes!”
I don’t want anything grand, I just want him to get down on his knee, holding a ring, saying he’s got my parents’ blessing and that it's okay for us to be together even though we're of a different religion and ethnicity.
He rented a chopper while we're in Tokyo. He kept holding my hand the whole time, and as we're descending, he quickly pulled out the ring and popped the question. Of course I said yes!
I prefer a practical kind of guy to a lovey-dovey guy. I want him to look me in the eye and straightforwardly tell me to go find a venue for us to hold our wedding reception at.
As an ENTJ, I wish he would come to me with a PowerPoint presentation on why we're a match, including data, strong arguments, case studies, solutions, and recommendations. Because I'm such a logical person and a marriage is a huge commitment, so I want to make sure I know what I'll be getting myself into.
I wanted something romantic that's shared just between the two of us. Little did I know, he came to my house to meet my father, and told him he would like to marry me. I caught off guard, but it turns out it was the most romantic thing he'd ever done for me.
My boyfriend and I work for the same company. I wish he would propose me in front of everyone during our daily group meeting.
I wanted a simple proposal: no family and friends, no flash mob, no photographers, no down on one knee. I don't even care about rings, just ask me either in bed or sofa. One day I woke up to an envelope on the pillow next to me, saying “Read this first!” I opened it, it said “Will you marry me?” I said, “Are you serious??” He said, “Is that a yes?” I said, “Yes, of course!” It was nothing fancy, but it was perfect for me.
He randomly told me to create an income projection until 2019 and to send it by lunchtime. I was confused but I did it anyway because we're open about financial stuff. But before I could send it, he already sent me his income projection and budgeting for our wedding next year. Guess that's what happens when an auditor proposes an accountant.

At the mention of the word ‘ savanna”, your mind probably wanders to the vast grassy plains of Africa. But do you know that there are actually a few savannas in the world that are worthy of your attention? Even more surprising, some of the best ones are located in Indonesia, ready to be explored to your heart’s content. So without further ado, let’s unleash our inner Simba or Nala, it’s time to roam here in our 5 picks of the most beautiful savannas in the world:
Said to be a major inspiration to the movie Lion King, the Serengeti goes as far as the eye can see- and then some more. The seemingly endless grassland is located in Tanzania, Africa and is one of Africa’s most classic safari destinations. It’s the home of the Big Five, over 500 species of birds and Agrica’s most well-known great wildebeest migration.
With countless tour packages available for your choosing, more and more attractions are introduced including hot air balloon, camping, walking safaris and so on. Excitement aside, nothing beats the tranquility of just sitting and waiting for sunset or admiring the landscape up close.
Home to East Sumba’s savanna, the grassland expanse is an iconic jewel that will struck any traveler with an awe-inspiring wonder. Just a 30-minute drive from Waingapu, the open stretches of grassland gets even more dramatic with backdrop of rolling hills at one side and oceanic stretch at the other. Cue in the galloping sandalwood horses and there you have it, the best nature scene one could ever wish for.
In fact, the golden-yellow savanna and blue skies have made the screen plenty of times in the movies. It’s also a highly-requested prewedding location, all thanks to the beach that is adjacent to the meadow with the same name.
The Palouse is the most serene and pastoral of the seven wonders of Washington. Located in the Southeast area of the state, the grassland boasts a unique landscape that is also a designated wheat and barley plantations. As the produce matures from time to time, the Palouse changes in colors too, from lush shades of green in Spring to crispy harvest brown in summer.
The meadow is a gem that captivates the hearts of many photographers, ready to hunt for the next most picturesque memory under the sun. One thing is for sure, with such wonderful sight to see, any shot is going to be as good as it gets.
We’re not kidding when we say some of the best savannas in the world is in Indonesia. Just check out our next contender, Savana Selo that is nicknamed after the pathway to reach it. With the majestic mount Merbabu as the backdrop, you can expect to find a few savanna spots, all with the same exotic yet carefree panorama. The beauty often stops hikers in their tracks, inviting them to take a long rest while absorbing the fresh view it has to offer.
Plenty of other mountains in Indonesia also share the same geographical feature of mountainous savannas. To name a few, there are Mount Sindoro, Mount Lawu, Mount Bromo, Mount Argopura and the list continues! So if you are yet to step foot in Africa or other foreign countries, Nusantara beckons your savanna visit anytime of the day.
Nothing gets more instagrammable than the stretch of lovely pink savanna in the form of one endless park. It’s one of the most visited places in Korea during autumn, the pinkish and violet grass sway dreamily like one huge fluffy carpet.
The pink sea of flowers is not the only thing that you get to enjoy, because Nari Park also houses many different other floral species that share one thing in common : extra prettiness! Just get your camera ready and prepare to experience a day of natural beauty at its finest height.
