“Alvin’s the geekier one,” says Wei Ying, “but I grew to love Star Wars more because of him. In fact, it was clear from the start that at least one of our celebrations would have a Star Wars theme.”
The couple, who first met online at OkCupid, had two celebrations, a casual reception with friends at The Halia, and a more traditonal banquet celebration with their family at Regent Singapore.
“We met online at Ok Cupid. At that time, Wei Ying’s profile mentioned that she was contemplating doing a Master’s in speech therapy. I introduced myself by saying that although I didn’t know much about this field, my friend’s wife was a speech therapist. That introduction earned me a response and we hit it off right away,” Alvin shares.
