Jennifer Woo A little bit about Jen, my wife and fellow adventurer:

Where we met

I met Jen in Boston when I was at Boston University, although we didn’t start dating until I moved to San Francisco.

How we got engaged

First of all, I have to thank my friend Edward Pan, who helped arrange my complicated plan for the proposal.

I took Jen to the Carnelian Room, Carnelian Room logo a restaurant on the top floor of San Francisco’s tallest building. Near the end the meal, Ed escorted the UC Men’s Octet to our private room. They serenaded her with the old a cappella standby, "Who Put the Bomp." Then it was my turn to sing along with the Octet. I sang Paula Abdul’s song, "Will You Marry Me?". (At the time I thought I was being so romantic for choosing that song; now I think it was kind of cheesy.)

Picture of Tamalpais Room At the end of the song, I dropped to one knee and proposed. Here’s the transcript:

Jerry (on bended knee): "Will you marry me?"
Jen (dumbfounded): “I love you.”

<A smooch, followed by a long pause>

Jerry: “You didn’t say ‘yes’ yet.”
Jen: "Oh, yeah."

Well, she took some time to reply affirmatively, but I think it did work out eventually :).

Where we are now

Jen and I have gotten married and are now living together in Los Angeles. We will likely re-locate, perhaps to a different city, once I find an adequate job.

What else?
