They shared mutual friends, attended similar events, but their paths never crossed until the perfect moment. But when the moment did happen, Bangon and Lam knew they were the ones for each other.

After a relationship test trip to Greece and then going through the joys and challenges of finding a home together, Lam asked Bangon to share her life with him on their one year anniversary.

A passionate photographer, Lam made a canvas from one of the beautiful photos he took in Greece with the proposal, “Will you take my hand and join me on this grand stage called life? Will you be my leading lady as we act out every scene in our play? Will you stand by my side through the ups and downs, and want more when the curtains closed? Can we write this masterpiece together, and appreciate the journey our story will take us?”

Imagine her suprise when Bangon found out that Lam always saw his future with her.

“Lam had been planning out future from the moment we met,” Bangon said. “During our trip, all the pictures that he took were images he pictured to propose to me with. The same time we were house hunting, he was designing my engagement ring. He is such wonderful person.”

Taking inspiration from Lam’s Chinese heritage, the couple were married on 8-8-2015 (2+0+1+5 = 8), a number considered very lucky and prosperous, at Panda King.

With happy tears flowing and celebrations all around, Bangon and Lam made perfect time to a happily ever after.
