Zoe loves the movies.

So I knew if I was going to propose, it had to involve the movies.
Jadi aku tahu kalau aku akan melamar, harus ada hubungannya dengan film.

But I can’t make a movie myself because I don’t work in film.
Tapi aku tidak bisa membuat film karena aku tidak bekerja di bidang ini.

So I had to get creative.
Jadi aku harus kreatif.

I ordered a black-and-white Italian film from a vintage film dealer.
Aku memesan film hitam putih Italia dari diler film antik.

It seemed vaguely romantic.
Filmnya sepertinya agak romantis.

I spent four months editing it on my computer.
Aku mengeditnya selama empat bulan di komputerku.

I changed all the subtitles.
Aku ganti semua teks terjemahannya.

I cut out the harem scene.
Aku potong adegan yang ada selirnya.

I completely changed the plot so that it resembled our lives.
Aku merubah total plotnya supaya menyerupai hidup kami.

I wrote some dialogue about picture frames because Zoe’s family owns a frame shop.
Aku menulis beberapa dialog tentang pigura karena keluarga Zoe memiliki toko pigura.

And I love trains.
Dan aku suka kereta api.

So I made the main character a train enthusiast.
Jadi aku membuat karakter utamanya seorang penggemar kereta api.

When I finished the editing, I rented out a small theater with sixty seats.
Ketika aku selesai mengedit, aku menyewa sebuah bioskop kecil dengan enam puluh kursi.

I invited all of Zoe’s friends and family.
Aku undang semua teman dan anggota keluarga Zoe.

I made sure everyone sat in the front and didn’t turn around.
Aku pastikan semuanya duduk di depan dan tidak menoleh ke belakang.

The weather was beautiful that day.

We got in a big fight about it, but I finally convinced her.
Kami bertengkar hebat, tapi akhirnya aku berhasil meyakinkannya.

I was so nervous that I laughed during the whole film.
Aku sangat gugup waktu itu dan takut akan tertawa sepanjang film.

I’d seen all the jokes 1000 times but I laughed at them anyway.
Aku sudah melihat adegan lucunya 1000 kali tapi aku tetap tertawa juga.

Then during the final scene, the main characters started speaking to the audience, and one of them asked: ‘Does anyone here want to get married?’
Kemudian di adegan terakhir, karakter utama film itu mulai berkata kepada penonton, dan salah satu dari mereka bertanya: ‘Ada hadirin di sini yang ingin menikah?’

So I stood up.
Aku berdiri.

The lights came on.
Dan lampu bioskopnya menyala.

All her friends and family turned around.
Semua teman dan anggota keluarganya menoleh.

And I gave a speech that I prepared.
Dan aku mengucapkan pidato yang sudah aku siapkan.

I was so nervous that I forgot to ask the actual question.
Aku begitu gugup sehingga lupa untuk menanyakan pertanyaan yang sesungguhnhya.

But Zoe bailed me out and said ‘yes’ anyway.”
Tapi Zoe menyelamatkanku dan berkata ya.
