Meng and Nina met on a summer night in July of 2010, while out
celebrating a friend’s birthday at a karaoke bar in L.A. Little
did they know, they had crossed paths many times before in the
past at parties and get-togethers, but did not actually officially
meet. There are even pictures of them together in group photos in
the past. So the karaoke bar was were they officially met.
Meng was standing up and singing when he saw with his peripheral
vision Nina and her friend step into the room. One of Meng’s friends
greeted her, then immediately asked her if she was single. She replied
"yes" and his response was to shout "Hey! Meng is single too!" Meng
and Nina both were like 🤦🤦♀️, but Meng continued singing as if he didn’t
see it happen though he was excited to meet her once he was done.
Nina and Meng actually didn’t start talking until the end of the
night when everyone was leaving. Coincidentally, Nina and her friend
gave Meng a ride home that evening. Even though Meng’s friend secretly
entered Nina’s phone number into his phone, Meng personally asked Nina
for it before they said goodbye for the night. That marked the beginning
of their friendship. However, the timing was off… both were going through
different phases in their lives, but that didn’t stop Meng from pursuing
Nina for over a year. Getting out of a long-term tough relationship, Nina
was not ready for another, yet she found herself wanting to be around Meng
all the time.
Fast forward a year later and the stars finally aligned for them. Nina
got to see the sweet and caring side of Meng and he had won her over.
From then on they embarked on an amazing journey together as M & N.
In August of 2018, after a romantic dinner for their 7th anniversary,
Meng took Nina along with their 2 furry kids to the local dog beach.
Meng surprised Nina by proposing under the moonlit beach at Coronado
Island dog beach; where they often spent quality time there with their
dogs Precious & Orion.
They were meant to be together and the universe had always had a plan
for them. From getting to know each other as friends, to building the
strong foundation which allowed their love and relationship to grow.
They’re so excited to start the next chapter of their lives together
and can’t wait to celebrate with you in December!
