Today’s special date (22.02.2022) has become a historic event for 59 couples after getting married in a simple wedding ceremony at Wisma Chin Woo earlier.
Based on a report by Bernama, the Ipoh Chin Woo Athletic Association organized the event which celebrated the couples, aged between 25 and 38, who came together in the presence of their parents to get married.
Among the 59 couples were Chan Kai Wei and Chow Ji Khay, 27, who chose today’s date because of its uniqueness, memory and the fact that the meaning of the numbers is considered lucky.
“We work in Singapore, however, we are ready to return to our hometown here to choose today’s date as our wedding date.”
“It’s been 15 years since we met and I started loving my wife since we were in school when I was in 6th grade. Last year I decided to propose to my wife in a famous guesthouse in Tambun,” the young husband shared. .
Another couple, Tong Kok Leong, 29, and Hah Siew Jun, 35, chose to participate in the open celebration as a keepsake that will always be remembered and they too were fond of today’s special date.
“Today’s date is unique and special for me and my wife because I don’t know when to get a date like this in the future. On top of that, the cost for this wedding ceremony is only RM260 for each couple which includes the ceremony as well as the marriage certificate.,” they shared.
Association President Datuk Ooi Foh added that the event is one of the largest held since the Movement Control Order (MCO) in nearly 2 years, which has affected their planning.
The ceremony was conducted with all 12 couples getting married simultaneously. This was to ensure that social distancing could be practiced throughout the event.
