Project R: Wedding Proposal 2.0

Thank you for visiting my humble blog. 🙂

Whether you are a regular reader or a first time visitor, I, Alvin Lim (Alvinology) needs your help.

You see, I was racking my brain juices for the past month, thinking of the best way to propose to my girlfriend of two years, Rachel Chan. How should a self-professed geek like me propose?

Online of course!

Rachel and I met working at an online portal, Youth.SG and our initial contacts were via long MSN sessions late at night. Even the solitaire ring I will be proposing with is bought online.

That’s how Project R came about: Project Rachel.

Here’s how you can help me:

Being a firm supporter and user of online social media, I am leaving my happiness to everyone to viral this message below to my wife-to-be:

“Rachel, will you marry me? I am waiting for your answer at a secret location. To find me, you need to unlock a series of clues which showcase my five resolutions to you. The first clue is in a video posted on my blog. I will be waiting for you till you show up.”

You can help me spread this on your blog, twitter, facebook, friendster of whatever other social media channels as long as it reaches people who knows Rachel personally and can inform her about this. If you know Rachel personally, you can do the same plus SMS, MMS, email her so she is swarmed with hundreds of proposal messages. A thousand and one proposal messages will be romantic isn’t it? Just leave the number 1001 for me.

If you wish to provide me with additional support for this wedding proposal, here’s a banner I have created for you to post on your blog, websites or anywhere else online and link back to this blog.

Oh! Btw, if you are wondering why I chose to propose on this date, 26 October happens to be both, Rachel and my birthday.

I will be carrying my laptop around and will be LIVE updating everyone on the progress via this blog and my Twitter account, including uploading photos and information about my five resolutions as Rachel solves them one by one.

Wish me luck and a big thank you to all!

Alvin would especially like to thank, Ping.SG, and Youth.SG for providing me with precious web banners today for this proposal.

I would also like to thank all my friends and colleagues who helped me to plan and execute this wedding proposal – you know who you are, I will not reveal your names now so as not to spoil the surprise for Rachel.
