Meet the Yang’s couple When we think of a love story we tend to picture endless love, but sometimes things don’t go as we intended. For several reasons life can drift a couple apart, but also the power of will and the willingness to make it happen, based on endless love, can overcome any obstacle. Pei Pei was only 23 years old when she met her husband to be Haiko. He, from Beijing and she from Shanghai. Haiko was working in Shanghai for a few months as a traveling manager for a retail company and Pei, recently graduated from college, was doing an internship on the same company. The “great day”as they refer was once they met at a coffee shop nearby their office, and described by them as an eye-crossing, completely staggering view of each other. As the days passed, they used to have coffee breaks at the same time, and one day Haiko decided to speak with Pei and they soon realized how much in common they had, and soon a warming feeling of joy started to fill their hearts. Since China is greatly dived by regions, not allowing a citizen from one province to move to another without government’s consignment, they decided to get engaged and Pei would soon move to Beijing.
Little they knew that as soon as the engagement was announced to the families, Pei’s father would not allow them to tie the knots since that would drive their dotter away. The couple broke up, and as the date for Haiko to leave Shanghai was approaching, and with a promise that they would always remember of each other no matter what the future would bring, they set apart for the good of her family. It wasn’t until 2015, 5 years later, that a trick from destiny would play part: both families decided to go on a cruise to Japan, on the same date, same ship. Despite the years passed and the pressure from China’s society on marriage at the earliest years of life to provide the family with a child, they were still both unmarried and unhappy with with their lives. What happens next is a very unexpected encounter on a dinner night where both hearts encountered once again. Both older, both wiser, they got to spend time together apart from their families on what was seen as a work partner’s coincidence to be at the same place, at the same time. This time, however, they decided to take a different path on life – it was clear their love for each other was still very much alive and they could make a life out of it. A decision was easy to be made, and on the last day of the cruise they announced to the families they decided to get engaged, and for everybody’s surprise, this time her father could see how genuine their feeling for each other was and that love needed to prevail upon their wishes. Pei soon would move to Beijing, and a small, intimate wedding was celebrated with both families and close friends. They also made a promise to each other that, feeling life and love gave them another chance, they would always celebrate the date they met again. This year, 2017, they decided to go on the same cruise and same ship where, 2 years ago, both crossed paths again for life. Madly in love still, Haiko decided to present his wife with a diamond ring from Sophia Fiori. He was always attracted to the green color since in China it is said to be of great lucky to posses green gemstones, one of the reasons why Jade is so sough after in Asia. For his surprise, upon visiting the shops onboard on a sea day afternoon he came across a green diamond ring and decided that would be the perfect fit for his lover. Upon receiving the gift from Haiko, Pei was very thankful and in love for the piece, but it was not until later on that day when both came back to the store to collect the certificate for the ring, and upon looking to a very special case featuring yellow diamonds, she felt even more in love with a stunning looking fancy yellow diamond solitaire. By the look on her face, Haiko could easily see that she felt in love for it and it was a smart decision to surprise her on the spot and exchange the ring for the one she liked. Right there, as they mentioned later, they were sealing the love that once denied, was already fully blossomed to be left behind
