We did the formal pamanhikan last night, over Skype. I prepared an agenda to help W- and his parents talk to my parents:


The agenda provided a running joke throughout the video chat. ;) The structure helped, too! We documented the decisions made, and I’m responsible for e-mailing people the minutes. W- and I keep planning information in Google Wave, a shared spreadsheet, and other notes.

Yes, we’re that kind of couple.

W- and I have joked that IBM’s helped us get a lot of experience in working with global teams and coordinating projects. ;)

Also, in other news, I’m engaged. =)

    Congratulations! Geek weddings are always fun to plan :-)

  • Sacha Chua

    Don, you get a special thank-you. ;) When W- and I first met, he recognized my name from one of my articles in the Linux Journal. That’s one of the reasons we got to talking! <laugh>

    So wait… you’re gonna just keep us in suspense about the venue. can you tell us the timezone? run a contest on who comes closest to the venue? I got dibs that it’s gonna be in Palawan.

  • Jenny Lisk

    Congratulations Sacha!!!

  • Sacha Chua

    Seth: Yes, I know, evil of me to bury news like that at the end of a blog post with a nondescript title. ;) Think of it like an Easter egg for a blog, perhaps? <laugh>

    Thanks for all the congrats! Venue: Toronto City Hall wedding chambers. We’re keeping it simple. =)
