How did you meet? QY: Our first en­counter he crashed an in­ti­mate cof­fee catch-up I was hav­ing with my cousin on a visit home to KL! But there were a few slid­ing door sit­u­a­tions to­wards the end of my trip, giv­ing us a chance to meet again and get to know each other. Then it felt like I’d been hit by a tonne of bricks, which in­ten­si­fied as I boarded the plane back to Lon­don with a 12-hour flight to di­gest what had hap­pened! RS: The mo­ment of in­fat­u­a­tion blos­somed d into love post the four-and-a-half-hour r chat we had on Sun­day night on her pa­tio o into 4.30am on Mon­day morn­ing! De­spite e drag­ging my­self into work a cou­ple of f hours later, I still man­aged to see her a fi­nal time be­fore she left for the air­port t on Mon­day evening. Look­ing back, it was s worth the loss of sleep. How did you know for sure that t you’d met the one? RS: In the span of an in­no­cent four days, , she man­aged to tick more boxes than n any­body has in 29 years. The defin­ing g mo­ment was say­ing good­bye to her on the e last day. When you won­der to your­self, f, where has this per­son been hid­ing all your life? When you re­alise a bench­mark has been set and a po­ten­tial life­long re­gret would linger if you didn’t act upon this im­pulse. The path was def­i­nitely clear from then on. QY: It’s a funny one but for me, I fi­nally un­der­stood what peo­ple meant when they say “You just know.” This even­tu­ally led us to the ad­di­tional ques­tion of “What are we wait­ing for?” En­gage­ment high­lights? RS: Even though I didn’t see it, I think the most touch­ing mo­ment for me would be when my Tok Mak put the en­gage­ment ring on Rai’s fin­ger and her crying from be­ing over­whelmed. How did he pro­pose? QY: Well, he pro­posed at a gath­er­ing un­der the pre­text of cel­e­brat­ing his be­lated birth­day so it was a real sur­prise dur­ing his birth­day speech! When he got down on one knee it felt like it was just the two of us. There was so much laugh­ter and love af­ter; it was amaz­ing and in­cred­i­bly mean­ing­ful. I’ve even kept the

cue card that he wrote his speech on from that night! When and where are you both ty­ing the knot? QY: We’re get­ting mar­ried in KL at the end of the year and both re­cep­tions will be the week af­ter in the New Year. What kind of wed­ding are you think­ing of hav­ing? QY: Of course, we’ll have the tra­di­tional akad nikah that is an in­ti­mate af­fair at home. We’re still work­ing through the de­tails for the re­cep­tions. As a sym­bol of your love, what ring did you get for Quraishah? RS: See­ing as she was in the UK at the time, we browsed through sev­eral soli­taire de­signs on­line to­gether. I spent the next cou­ple of months de­sign­ing the mi­nor al­ter­ations to best fit her. What are the things you love most about her? RS: Her looks, in­tel­li­gence, wit, val­ues, kind­ness, sense of loy­alty, and not to men­tion her cackle when finds some­thing ex­tremely amus­ing. Her smile, I would say, is her se­cret weapon.
