A Treasure Hunt with a Twist

A Treasure Hunt with a Twist

When Stefano Poggi was preparing his marriage proposal for his girlfriend Joselyn de Leon, he knew it had to be something original and special. So he drew upon their mutual love of childhood games to inspire his proposal: a three-day scavenger hunt.

On the first two days of the hunt, Poggi had de Leon search around their apartment complex for Kinder eggs with toys inside. The third day was when Stefano brought the big guns out and started the real treasure hunt. He asked her to meet him for lunch. At the last minute, Stefano canceled but left her another Kinder egg with a clue inside. The clue instructed her to go to the closet where she found a bag packed with a dress, high heels, three Scrabble letters (W, J, M), $1.62 and an address.

After changing, de Leon went to the address which turned out to be an alternate address to one of her favorite spots near La Jolla Shores. She stopped at a vendor and bought a hot dog for $1.62. For hours, de Leon went from location to location gathering more scrabble letters. She went from her local library where a clue was in one of her favorite books, The Giving Tree, to the spot where Poggi told her he wanted to start dating her. Her last hint was (get ready to melt):

“For your final clue, please proceed to a place that is not often seen, but from which much can be seen. I always wonder why you ask to come here, since my favorite view is always you.”

De Leon knew immediately that the location was Mt. Soledad, one of her favorite spots. The sun was setting when she arrived to a picnic Poggi had arranged. He apologized for canceling their lunch and asked if she wanted to play a game of Scrabble. He took her Scrabble letters and arranged them so they said, “Joselyn Will You Marry Me,” and presented her with two-dozen roses and a  ring.

Now how is that for a romantic and original proposal? If you want to give your guy some ideas, this is definitely one to pass along! What are some of the more original proposals you’ve heard (or received!)? [La Jolla Light]

I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as DR abaka told me when he helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted DR abaka the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted DR abaka he assured me that my man will come again. he gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent him the money and he bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as he told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because DR abaka is so real and i urge you contact him now on his email so that he can also help you the way he helped me. email is Drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also contact him with his phone number on whats app +2349063230051 you can also check and contact him on htpp://Drabakaspelltemple.blogspot.com

THE MIGHTY SPELL CASTER THAT HELPED ME SOLVED MY URGENT CRITICAL RELATIONSHIP PROBLEM.
I dont know how to really thank Dr. Keke Odin for what he did for me. My Name is Anita Kelly from Los Angeles, i was dating this man who i loved very much for over four years now without any problem in our relationship. so at a point he changed so suddenly after returning from the office and started behaving so strangely. it even got to the extent that he told me it was over and i should never call him again. This was a person that loved me with everything that he had. When i told my friend jenny what happened, she introduced me to a great spell caster called DR KEKE ODIN, the chief priest of all spell caster. At first sight this man told me all my problems that it was his secretary that used a charm on him. Dr KEKE ODIN told me not to worry that he will help me solve the problem. The following day, i was in the house in a sober mood when i first received a message from my boyfriend that he was very sorry and before i dropped the phone, he called me again to say he is on his way home and that he was truly sorry for everything. To my greatest surprise, one week later he engaged me and we got married. All Thanks to KEKE ODIN. You can contact him through the following means
