The Question in Paradise

When I was 19, we met in Hamilton whilst Joyce and I were there for a Badminton/Academic Scholarship and it didn’t take us long to find out that we were right for each other.

We endured and enjoyed what life threw at us; studying together in University, trainings/competitions in Badminton, a year apart (whilst on exchange in Japan), long distance while I moved up to Auckland and the countless times I’ve been away at training and tournaments in the last 3 years. Even though our relationship status has been “engaged” since our engagement ceremony (31st December 2009, a cultural necessity for most Asians) I never really had the chance to pop the “question”.

On the 30th May 2014 (31st May 2014 NZT) and after more than 2 months planning in top secrecy the perfect opportunity to propose came; and I am so happy to get a 「 Yes, I do! 」
Thank you for always being there for me, supporting me through tough times and sharing all the happy times!

Joyce’s Perspective:
17歲時我因為羽毛球遇見了凡,一位一起渡過大學生活,一位願意等我一年去日本完成我的夢想,一位即使開始在外地工作,還每個週末往返的他。21歲時我們確認了彼此以傳統溫馨的儀式在Hamilton,我們認識,相愛,據有意義的地方訂婚。之後他努力追尋他的夢,而我努力的更充實自己。雖然聚少離多,但是每次相聚都會更加確認他就是我的Mr. Right。今天30.05.2014, 吳先生無預警的帶我到人間天堂,Tahiti大溪地,在我最愛的大海面前,單膝跪了下來:「對不起花了那麼久的時間,謝謝妳一直支持我,would you marry me?」。因為是你,因為有你,「YES, I DO。」
