“Abhinay is probably the most loving and kind person you will ever meet. His favourite thing is to surprise me with ridiculous couples weekends away. After a busy year for the both of us, our first long weekend off together was coming up.
It was a surprise as usual and I had somewhat suspected the Whitsundays as I knew he was waiting for a long weekend as he had said many times he wanted to take me. While Abhinay is usually terrible at keeping secrets, he was doing so well until the night before when we went to dinner with his friends and one of his good friends let cat out of the bag and asked “Krish, are you excited for Vanuatu?”
Somehow his disappointment with me finding out the location disguised the true intentions of the trip. Once we arrived in Vanuatu, Abhinay rushed me to a 5 pm dinner that he called “the romance package that came with the accommodation”. When we arrived, it was a private dinner for two, set up on a jetty overlooking the water with turtles and fish swimming all around. It was incredible, and unsuspecting still at this point, he proposed not long after arriving as the sun was setting. Following the proposal, the first thing he had said was “Don’t worry, it’s insured” as I lose everything!!”
