Love is our greatest sustenance
This is our 10th year together, and we currently live in Melbourne, Australia. We came from Malaysia and Singapore respectively to attend the University of Western Australia in Perth, but our paths never really crossed. To me, he was the studious type, so it came as a surprise when he started calling me to ask about assignments. We ended up talking into the wee hours of the night, about any topic imaginable. The time we had a date at the library, he went all out and prepared a meal for me from scratch. It’s true what they say, “the way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach”.
Our relationship has been nothing short of magical, but there have also been times where we’ve had to compromise. Even so, I can’t imagine life without him. Our pre-wedding photoshoot was held in Perth, where we got up close with seemingly-friendly seagulls, only to realize that they were actually quite vicious! This photo is our favourite; as we gaze into each other’s eyes, I find myself reliving the sweet memories we shared as each other’s first love.
