“Ryan travels a lot and stays everywhere except Malaysia! I will be based here, though. We may not see each other daily but absence makes the heart grow fonder, so this is a dream marriage!” 


“Ryan is a brilliant young businessman. I am a Catholic Kadazan from Sabah and he is also a Christian, so spiritually we are one.”


“We started dating exclusively only this year. Let me cite the reasons why I love him! He is stable, patient and a good friend. Friendship means a lot to me.”


“He is faithful and spiritually strong. He is smart with big dreams, but he is no Brad Pitt! He is someone I can see myself growing old with! Oh, I am such a romantic at heart! Anyway it’s in the stars – he is a Scorpio and I am a Cancerian, so we are a perfect match!”


“He is a bit of a Chinaman-lah. He literally talked me into marrying him! Just like that! He is a determined man and gets what he wants. I find that very sexy.”
