Will you marry me?

"Will you marry me?" is not the only way for a man asking for a woman's hand in marriage.

In Japan, a Japanese man often says one of these as a means to propose:

パンスを洗ってください Please wash my underwear.

毎日、みそ汁を飲みたい I would like to drink miso soup everyday.

In Singapore, a Singaporean man may ask, "Shall we get an HDB flat?" to propose.

HDB is government flat, and big subsidies are given for first time home owners, usually the newly-married.

Are there any interesting ways to propose in other cultures/languages?
