Love Story

Caren and Barry met at the workplace as they worked for the same company. "It took him a few months to summon up the courage to speak to me, and when he did, it was with a glass of champagne and a smile on his face," shares Caren. Sparks certainly flew when they met. In time, the instant attraction led to a romantic relationship, and eventually, the altar.

Barry popped the question to Caren at a restaurant in Hong Kong. Caren narrates: "After dinner, he suggested to have dessert at The Peak Lookout Restaurant, which we don't normally do. Right there, on a candlelit table and with the beautiful view of Hong Kong, he then asked 'Would you be my wife?'--with his hands shaking and body sweating!" After shedding tears of joy, Caren answered Barry's question with a sweet yes.
