Yew Kar Yee, 20, and her boyfriend, 30-year-old Cheung Chan Choon, had been dating for quite some time. The couple were very much in love and happy to be together. So for the holidays, the couple was heading off to go and celebrate.
For Christmas, Yee and Choon decided that they would fly to Singapore to celebrate. So the couple happily packed up their bags and headed for the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport. Yee was incredibly excited to go away with her boyfriend and spend a nice holiday trip together.

The police stopped Choon and told him that he was being arrested for an alleged drug possession. They were arresting him so that they could further investigate the situation. Yee was completely distraught over what was happening.

15. Calming Her
Yee continued to badger the police and couldn’t understand what was happening. Eventually, an officer walked over to Yee and attempted to calm her down. They told her to sit and wait in Choon’s seat until they could tell her more.
14. Incredibly Upset
Yee was incredibly upset and knew that the police had made a serious mistake. She knew that there was no way that Choon had any drugs on him. She felt that if she could just explain the situation to them that she could help out her boyfriend.

However, not long after Choon’s arrest, Yee began to hear a faint noise in the background. The noise continued to get louder and closer and she soon realized that it was music playing. She couldn’t understand why music suddenly began to play…

Suddenly, Yee saw something that she couldn’t believe. Standing in a pilot’s outfit was her boyfriend, Choon. Choon was also carrying a bouquet of roses and a box with a ring inside of it…
10. Right Behind Him
Right behind Choon was a videography crew that were filming the entire interaction. Along with the videography team was a band playing live music. Yee couldn’t believe her eyes!
9. Elaborate Proposal
It seems that the entire thing had been concocted by Choon to throw Yee off. He didn’t want her to suspect that a proposal was coming at all. It seems that he definitely succeeded in that respect!
8. Declaration of Love
It was at this moment that Choon decided to declare his love for Yee. With a microphone in hand, Choon began to speak into the mic that was attached to a speaker. He then began to tell everyone about how much he adored his girlfriend.
7. One Knee
After declaring his love for Yee, Choon then did the act that everyone was waiting for. He got on one knee and proposed to Yee. Yee was in total shock by everything that was happening.
Once Choon popped the question, Yee broke out in tears. She couldn’t believe that all of that stress led to this moment. So, how did she respond to Choon’s proposal?

Choon was there on one knee, asking the big question. Finally through her tears of joy Yee gave him an answer, “Yes.” Everyone that was watching began to roar in applause.
The airport broke out into a great applause and cheering. Everyone was so moved by the touching moment. After all, it really took a lot of effort for Choon to orchestrate such an elaborate proposal.
3. Spending Money
Later, when Choon was interviewed by the local reporters, he was asked about how much it took to make the proposal happen. It seems that Choon spent around $3, 295 to make the surprise proposal happen. In fact, he had been planning it for months.
Choon also revealed that he did worry about being rejected but he knew he needed to make the effort regardless. “But I decided that there was no use in being worried. I had to do what I can,” Choon stated. It seems that all of it paid off in the end.
“And it was worth it. I want her to have an unforgettable memory to cherish for the rest of her life,” Choon said. The couple is set to get married in just one year! Talk about a real happy ending.
