On 10th November, our nation’s pride and international shuttler Dato’ Lee Chong Wei will finally tie the knot with his off-and-on girlfriend of 11 years, Wong Mew Choo. Wong Mew Choo was also a former national badminton player – Malaysia’s top woman singles shuttler, to be precise.
No prizes for guessing why she retired!
The duo met during training and has tried to keep their relationship/love life as private as possible for more than a decade. As a matter of fact, according to our Dato’:
I’ve known Mew Choo since my junior days and we’ve been in and out of relationship for the last 11 years. Of course, there have been misunderstandings but she has always stood by me. She knew me and liked me even when I was a nobody … and she has not changed. She has waited for me for a long time and I decided that it was time to marry her. She is one patient woman and I like that quality in her.
Aww. Well, you know what they say, right? Patience is a virtue.
It was also said that the couple spent three whole hours in a pre-wedding photo shoot at the iconic Sepang Gold Coast Palm Tree Resort – the very same place where the private beach wedding is going to be held.
Following which, Dato’ Lee Chong Wei and Datin Wong Mew Choo’s wedding receptions will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 9th and 10th November (Friday and Saturday).
Dato’s brother, Lee Chong Hoon said that Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Ministers and corporate leaders, both here and abroad have been invited for the 9th November reception while the 10th November reception is for family members and friends.

Word on the street is that both Lin Dan and Taufik Hidayat are also on the invite list. (Source)
We think that both Lin Dan and Taufik are probably under the “VIP Sportsmen” list? No?
But you know what it all sounds like to us anyway! Yup. One great, big, “smashing” party. We can’t wait to hear all about it. For now, feast your eyes on some extremely beautiful pre-wedding shots of the happy couple:

Altogether now, “Aww..”!
