Following the surprising news of Noor Nabila tying the knot with Engku Emran Engku Zainal Abidin earlier on Friday, photos of the latter proposing to his bride on a hot-air balloon weeks before the wedding began circulating online over the weekend.
Not long after the posts made its way online, Indonesian news channel, Surya Citra Televisi (SCTV) suddenly appeared out of nowhere, and claimed that Emran previously took the same approach in proposing to his 2nd ex-wife, singer-actress Laudya Cynthia Bella!
For those in the dark, the media strategist got married to the Bandung-born starlet on 8th September 2017. Their marriage didn’t last long though, as the couple officially got divorced sometime in June 2020. Prior to his 2nd marriage, Emran was previously married to Erra Fazira from 2007 to 2014.
Local netizens gave their best reactions to the circulating reports. It all started after a Twitter user known as Yon (@Amrlamnnn) jokingly commented about Emran’s “tactic” in winning the hearts of both Laudya and Nabila. At the time of writing (Monday, 22nd March), his tweet has accumulated up to 11,000 retweets on social media!
Interestingly, the post was met with tons of entertaining remarks left by fellow netizens on Twitter, with many male social media users ‘plotting their strategies’ in an attempt to imitate the Suria fm Chief Operating Officer (COO)’s effective manoeuvre. Check out some of the amusing responses below:
- “That’s right, this tactic of him is effective. When you propose (to your loved one) while riding the hot air balloon, chances of getting rejected will be as low as by 0.0001 (%). This is because the place is narrow and at the same time you’re flying high up in the sky. It’s not like the girl would jump from the basket, right?”
- “Ride a hot air balloon, and ask the girl to marry you. Done.”
- “@KendallJenner you free this weekend? Let’s go on a hot air balloon ride.”
- “Erra Fazira: ‘Why was I never invited to ride a balloon before?'”
