The couple first met in school and often hung out and studied together, with the rest of their ‘Study-Kakis’. Hitting it off naturally, the two grew closer to each other and love took its course over time. As the both of them lead hectic lifestyles, dates may not be as easy to come by. On weekends when either one of them has to spend time with their own family, the other will try to join in, making the best out of every opportunity to be around each other. On other rare occasions where the lovebirds have some alone time, they would go for a game of bowling or a round of karaoke - just the two of them.
What is Christmas to you?
It's the season of giving, and a time that reminds me of how much my loved ones mean to me.
Do you guys have the habit of exchanging gifts?
Yes we do!
Something interesting - if you are given a budget of $10, what would you get for your partner?
Honestly... I think I would get him 2 McSpicy meals? (laughs)
Marcus loves it and it's funny how much joy a simple burger can bring to him! If I have to give him something that isn't food related, I'd probably treat him to a few rounds of bowling as it’s one of his favourite pastimes.
Is it okay if your partner doesn’t give you a gift?
I feel that gifting ignites a relationship and creates memorable moments between each other. That way, the relationship won't be so stagnant and we are less likely to take each other for granted. It also shows if we know what each other wants or needs in a way, and how much we actually pay attention to our loved ones. It doesn't have to be something expensive - a simple handmade card takes a lot of effort too. To me, it's the thought that counts!
