In this age of modernity, there are many ways to meet people. The great impact of social media in our society is undeniable and Jo and Rina is not an exemption. Jojo met her future wife, Rina on Wechat in 2014. When he saw that she was online, he initiated the conversation and she willingly accepted him. One day, while visiting his sister who just gave birth to her second son, he discovered that she was just within the area. He immediately sent her a message and this was the beginning of a series of exchanging messages which paved way to their love story.
They had coffe on their first date and during their getting to know stage, discovered that they share the same passion for running. Both being a little health buff, they had joined serveral Fun Run events all over the Metro. They also love trying out new restaurants to eat and discovering new places as well. Their love for travel and seeing the world together brought them even closer. They laugh all the time and have so much fun together. They're always on the go and off to their next 'adventure' together, which makes them a perfect match! His parents and siblings teat her already as a member of the family. Likewise, her family welcomed him wholeheartedly into their home - something that he is truly thankful for.
On Rina's birthday, Jojo planned a trip to Hong Kong and Macau. He knew Macau Tower will be a good proposal spot. He thought about what he is going to tell her - all the sweet things and rehearsed it several times in his head to make sure that everything will be perfect. When they got to Macau Tower, he got down on one knee (forgetting all the words he rehearsed in his head because he was more nervous than their first date) and simply asked Rina to spend forever with him. Of course, she answered him with a YES and a big kiss. It was such a special moment!
