QURAISHAH YATIM, 27, AND RAHMAN SUHAIMI, 29
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.

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.
