A fairytale engagement

Once upon a time, there was a lady from Melbourne whose name was Jeanette. One day, she decided to travel far, far away from home, to the magical town of Luang Prabang in the mysterious land of Laos. There, she worked as a volunteer English teacher with GVI, helping the local students and teachers. All of Jeanette's students loved her, and she them, but still she missed her love at home. Malcolm was his name, and he missed her terribly too. So, with his guitar under his arm, he too made the the long journey to Laos to once again be with his one and only Jeanette.

Last night, knowing that he never again wanted to be apart from her, Malcolm got down on one knee, and asked Jeanette to marry him! And, lucky for this story (and him!), she smiled a huge smile, and said 'YES!'

Malcolm and Jeanette have decided to stay on in Luang Prabang for a few months....and we have no doubt that they will live happily ever after!
