Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and boyfriend Philip Lee (李乘德) officially announced their engagement on November 6, at a party where Myolie celebrated her 36th birthday with friends and family. Myolie was in tears when Philip popped the question, and gave him a sweet kiss on the lips.
The former TVB actress, who also owns a bridal studio, said she will be holding their 50-table wedding banquet at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong hotel on December 28. The reporters called up Myolie for a brief interview, and the happy bride-to-be was very willing to share more stories about her engagement.
Myolie said she and Philip have very compatible personalities; it was to the point where Myolie knew him so well that it’s hard for Philip to surprise her. But Philip, determined to give Myolie an unforgettable proposal, did manage to shock her in the end.
She said, “I told him that I’m pretty clever and aware when it comes to these things, so he has to do something where it’s impossible for me to guess. One time, he had me look at a lantern slide he made. The slides consisted of all the pictures we took together, and the last picture was a ring.”
Myolie initially thought that Philip had not prepared the ring yet, but he surprised her with the engagement ring inside a rice cooker. She said, “Before I could even react, he was already in tears.”
