As much as it feels like it at the time, breaking up with your beloved partner is not the end of the world. And, for that matter, it might not be the end of your relationship either!
Netizens were surprised when Malaysian influencers Jasmine Yang (香米) and Kvin Wang (Kvin 阿旺) announced their engagement yesterday (7th December). It was a pleasant surprise, but not many saw it coming. After all, the two had reportedly broken up in April.
The breakup announcement had come as a shock to their fans. The couple had only been dating for over a year before deciding it was over. Both stated that they did love each other, but could not reconcile their views. As Kvin said, “We can’t see a future (for) this relationship at this time.”
Although the two made it clear they were only friends, something must have changed over the months. Clearly, the two had never fallen out of love with each other. The couple kept their relationship quiet but finally revealed their updated status when they announced their engagement.
Kvin had apparently planned for the proposal with his friends, hoping to surprise Jasmine. The YouTuber spared no expense in making it the perfect engagement for his girlfriend. The place was beautifully decorated with balloons and flowers. Many of their friends and other influencers were in attendance, like Jasmine’s sister Findy Yang (小粉底) and Iven Lee (阿源).
During the proposal, Kvin started crying as he professed his love to his girlfriend. He also got down on one knee to present the ring to her. Needless to say, everyone was overjoyed when Jasmine, after wiping her eyes, nodded and said yes.
We wish the happy newly-engaged couple well! It’s wonderful to know that they didn’t give up on their relationship and are now engaged. If anything comes their way again, we’re sure they will pull through. After all, their relationship did survive their breakup!
Update (Wednesday, 8th December, 5:20pm):
As it turns out, one person isn’t very happy with the newly-engaged couple. Apparently, Jasmine’s ex-boyfriend really needed to say his piece. He came into the picture after Kvin and Jasmine broke up in April. However, it didn’t last long and Jasmine later got back together with Kvin before getting engaged.
The ex questioned their engagement with the caption: “(Are you sure its) pure intentions?” He wished them well in another Instagram story, but still sounded salty about it. “I wish you a happy wedding, even though you can’t see this. After all, you both are blocking me (on Instagram),” he said. He must have hoped to win Jasmine back too. Unfortunately for him, Kvin got there first.
