One of the reason is, he plays the guitar.
I always have this "thing" with men who play the guitar and skateboarder. I didn't get the latter but I am glad he can play the former.
I always had jelly knees whenever he played me songs. Or at least songs that I could sing to, as he's more into strumming spanish, mexican
The first few months we're dating, I didn't know of his talent. I thought that he's all talk and boast so I didn't bother. At the end of our preparation program, he and his little group wanted to performed on our grand dinner night. And I being the loyal and supporting girlfriend and all, joined them for a jamming session. Then, my fiance played the intro of Hotel California. Solo. With the goreng and all. I was awed. Wow, this dude who is my boyfriend (at that time) was awesome. So cool! I was melting. And out of nowhere, my cheeks turned hot and red. I was blushing for no apparent reason. I was melting! HA HA HA.
Occasionally, when I visited him at his place back in Germany, I would made him listen to whatever current songs that I liked, and made him played the song with me singing along, of course. Heee heee. When the song Lucky by Jason Mraz feat. Colbie Calliat was played on the radio, I said to him, if only I'm not so tone deaf and could actually sing, I'd be Ms Calliat and you'd be my Jason Mraz.
To which he said, I'm Jason Mraz and you are the katak that panggil hujan.
The other night, I jokingly ask my fiance,
"Sayang, would you play me song during your reception later?"
"Oh, didn't plan to but why?"
I laugh nervously (and cover malu),
"Oh nothing, I though that you'd play me at least one song. Urm, as surprise or something. Heee."
(The truth is, I wanted him so play me a song. But so damn malu as I don't want him to call me hopeless romantic or anything. I am not romantic!)
Oh sayang, please serenade me with your guitar!
