The girlfriend of Hong Kong badminton star Angus Ng Ka-long defied his stutters and tropical storm Lionrock to accept his marriage proposal at the weekend.
Ng uploaded pictures of himself in a black suit with his girlfriend of 6 1/2 years Charlotte on his Instagram yesterday morning. The top badminton player proposed at a hotel on Saturday, despite the wind and rain.
Ng said that it was a happy surprise, and that Charlotte "couldn't guess I was gonna propose until right before the ceremony.
"I couldn't believe that you said yes even when I stuttered so much," Ng said.
Ng said he ran into a lot of problems before the proposal. "Organizing this under typhoon signal No 8 really scared me. What we had long planned was almost ruined by the weather."
He thanked Charlotte's friends for preparing the surprise with him, and also the hotel, florist and the company that loaned him the suit.
