“Someday we’ll know, if love can move a mountain.”
This is some of the few lines of Mandy Moore hit song “Someday we’ll know” that reminded me upon seeing a mountaineer proposed to love of her life on her favorite place – the peak of the mountain.
Based on the post of Pinoy Mountaineer, A lady hiker named Gracey Padilla decided to take advantage of the beautiful view in the mountain top to ask the man she loves to marry her.
From lady hiker MacGracey Padilla: “Just wanted to share the moment when I proposed to my boyfriend at the peak of Pico de Loro..Yup I was the one who proposed to him..ako rin kasi ang nanligaw sa kanya since sobrang torpe niya..He was my childhood sweetheart..Friend ko siya since elementary and im not expecting na aabot kame sa ganitong stage. He said “YES”! He was so happy at napatulala siya coz he’s not expecting na gagawin ko yun..Then the moment na bumaba na kame ng bundok lagi lang siya nakatingin sa ring at halos ayaw pagasgasan.. We are planning to exchange our wedding vows on his birthday next year ganun ko siya kamahal..” #taongbundok
