Love is beautiful thing and deserves to be celebrated in every given chance.
Datuk Lee Chong Wei does not shy away from expressing his love and gratitude to his wife, Datin Wong Mew Choo, when it comes to their wedding anniversaries.
Each and every year, the legendary badminton shuttler never fails to show us all what true love really is through his amazing gestures. This year was no exception as Lee took it to Instagram to pen the most special and loveliest wish to his wife for their ninth anniversary.

The 39-year-old loving husband started the caption with, “I never knew I know how to dream. Until I met you.”
He proceeded to share how nervous he was in proposing to Wong in Gold Coast, Australia, almost a decade ago.
“It was the most nervous moment of my life. More gan jiong (nervous) than Olympic final. More gan jiong than collecting SPM result,” he stated.
He even expressed how anxious he felt when she kept quiet for a moment after he popped the question. The thoughts that flooded his head soon vanished after he tearfully said yes.
“Was I not good enough for you? Was I not handsome enough for you? I look at mirror every day, not Andy Lau but my face boleh-cari-makan ma my face. But luckily, after a long pause, you teared and say yes! We hugged. And we cried, a thousand rivers,” he wrote with humour.
As much as we are in awe of the beautiful and everlasting marriage, Lee wrote how he felt the same way, stating that he was unable to believe how they are married.
“Till today, I still pinch myself… With two beautiful sons. With a future I can’t wait to grow old with you. Hand in hand,” he said.
“I’d steal the sun from the sky for you, if you want me to. Happy nine years anniversary, lao po (wife).”
Taking a jab at the recent headlines, Lee never fails to slot in a few jokes.
“This nine-year anniversary a little low-key, but I will buy you that siakap fish from Langkawi,” he joked.
Many flocked to the comments section to express just how touching the message was and that they too wish to find themselves in such a loving relationship in the future.
We congratulate the couple for their wonderful and inspiring marriage!
