THE CIRCLE OF LIFE
Alluding to how they first crossed paths, the wedding of FLORENCE LEE and car aficionado DAMIAN XIAO featured luxury cars and little extravagances for a picture-perfect, unforgettable union
Unlike most couples, Damian Xiao met his in-laws even before he first laid eyes on his wife. He had known her parents from Mini Cooper events, and it was at one of the dinners that he finally spoke to their daughter. Florence Lee was outgoing and charismatic, while he was slightly reserved; like yin and yang they immediately hit it off.
No doubt, their relationship saw challenges. They had to endure time apart when Damian served two years of National Service, and when he spent another two years at university in Melbourne, Australia. Whenever they were together, however, they made the most of every minute. Whether they were having long intimate conversations over a good meal or enjoying scenic road trips, being able to enjoy each other’s company after all that time apart brought them closer.
After nine years of dating, it was a matter of time before Damian popped the question. “I knew she was the one because she always has the best intentions at heart despite our different opinions,” he says. “Also, she makes me laugh and she laughs at my jokes.”
Knowing that Christmas was her favourite holiday, Damian gave Florence the best Christmas gift by going down on bended knee at a tranquil French restaurant by the sea.
