Asuki Chan, 27, firmly believed there was a 'Mr Right' out there for her and she would never settle for a 'Mr Right Now'. 'I wanted to find a guy who was ready to commit to a serious relationship. Even my sister thought I would end up a spinster,' the financial administrator says. So she waited and waited, until optometrist Gary Fung, 33, came along. The couple tied the knot on April 30 in front of 300 guests at the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club in Tuen Mun. They met in the spring of 2007 at their church in Lai Chi Kok, and it was hardly love at first sight. 'I thought he looked like a real geek when I first met him,' Asuki says. It took almost two years for the couple to get to know each other. Love sparkled when they went camping in October 2008. 'When we were organising the event for a group of friends, I noticed she was very responsible and organised. But I still struggled over whether I should give it a try,' Gary says. They bonded when Asuki went on a mission trip to Kupang, Indonesia, in December 2008, a city struck by malaria. Gary texted Asuki every day and reminded her to take her anti-malaria pills. 'I didn't realise that it was working,' Gary says. In January 2009, Gary invited Asuki to the New Year flower market in Victoria Park. Gary held Asuki's hand for the first time and didn't want to let go. But Asuki told Gary she needed three months to think about it. The couple realised that they had shared ideas on marriage and relationships. 'I got to ask the questions that mattered to me, and Gary got all the answers right,' Asuki says. On their wedding day, Gary gave seven knitted scarves in each colour of the rainbow to the tearful Asuki. 'It was a gift he'd planned for two years,' she says. 'I know he's the one for me.'
