Turns out Mr Right was there all along

Chris Wu was listening intently to the lecturer when Diana Yuen leaned over and tapped him on the shoulder to strike up a conversation. For Chris, it was love at first sight.

The pair quickly became close friends, however, and Diana didn't want to lose that. It took five years for her to take the plunge - only then she wished she had done it sooner.

Have your say

The way you look at things

Clouds are white, but if you look at them through coloured glass, they become colourful.

Paper is usually white, but if you draw colours on it, it becomes colourful.

If the paper has a black dot on it, you can draw more lines on it and it will become a flower.

'It doesn't matter what time I go to bed; it can be 10.30pm or 2am, I'll still get up at 7.30am. Even if I didn't have an alarm clock, I'd wake up at that time. First thing is my quiet time; in prayer or reading the bible. Then I get ready for my day - take a shower, brush my teeth - sometimes I'll eat a light breakfast. I never drink coffee.

Angered by company's tactics

I wish to express my absolute disgust at Interwood Marketing for its blatant profiteering from the death of Princess Diana through the issue of the stamps it has been selling on television. The use of pure hard-sell advertising techniques is quite outrageous.

For example, 'Remember Diana, order now!' at the end of the commercial.
