This is one the most important night for Ming because he proposed his wife at that night. I still remember he call me through skype and told me that.

It was a scorching hot afternoon. I tried to get out as early as possible but still stuck in a jam. I was so nervous because I will meet my girlfriend's family tonight. My girlfriend was trying to comfort me. 20 minutes later, we arrived her parents' house. I almost forgot how to speak Japanese because I was so nervous. Her parents are very nice. They had so many questions about how we met each other. We talked a lot during dinner.
After dinner I went to a park next to Sumidagawa with my girlfriend. The firework show will start ten minutes later. We found a really nice grass to sat. By the way, it was my first time wearing wafuku. My wife was sitting next to me. She was exciting for the firework because she wasn't at home at July for last five years. The firework show was fantastic. I haven't seen that big fire work before. After the show, we were ready to go home. I hold her hands and fall on a knee.
"Nanako, would you marry me?" My heart was almost stopped beating at that moment. She cried and said "Yes."
