In a foreign city, I met my one true love
I’m a Malaysian working in Singapore, and on weekends, I volunteer at the youth activity centre at a Buddhist temple. I want to make a difference, because I think life is more meaningful that way. We met during one of these activities. He’s born and bred in Singapore, a kindred spirit who spends more time thinking of others than of himself. I love his kind, warm-hearted disposition. He’s always wanted a family to call his own; he says that a home should be built on love, and the walls painted with tender loving care. Ever since he asked me to be a part of his humble abode, we’ve been eagerly waiting for the arrival of our big day.
Just like how we’d pore over our grandparents’ photographs in awe, we want our future generations to see our life as a young, happy couple in love with each other. Our photoshoot took place at Marina Bay Sands, where he first popped the question. We also shot some images at the temple because it bears a huge meaning for us. Our next outdoor location was Sekinchan, a small town in Malaysia that’s known for its fishing village and paddy fields. The weather was certainly on our side as we stood amidst endless green paddy fields underneath a clear, blue sky. I’ll always remember the brimming love I felt for him on this lovely afternoon.
