Love Story

Aya and Marlu met each other while they were on opposite sides of the world. Aya was then based in Singapore, while Marlu was in the United States. While visiting a friend, Marlu saw Aya on his friend's social networking page. Aya immediately sparked his interest, and he soon sent her a message. "I replied, then [we] exchanged messages, chatted, and [made] endless phone calls. We [developed a] friendship which led to a meaningful relationship that [ended] in marriage," shares Aya. The two eventually found a way to close the distance between them.


When Marlu decided to pop the question, he need not have any grand plan. As the two were taking a stroll at the Singapore Botanical Gardens, Marlu suddenly asked Aya to stop by a kiosk for a brief rest. "He just casually asked me, ‘If will ask you to marry me, will you marry me?' To which I answered ‘Of course, I will.'" Aya shares. Marlu then took out a ring from his pocket and slipped it on Aya's finger.
