PRECIOUS Manager Making Memories For Those Who Deserve: MAKING HAPPY WEDS PROJECT

I remember my face was filled with tears when I first read this story few years back when it was all over social media, it melted all of our hearts. This romantic old man may have fulfilled his act of true love to his wife on his own, but PRECIOUS Manager - East Chin on the other hand, has something in mind that she wish she could do for the people of our local community who deserves more.

This once in a life time celebration don't come cheap these days. Like many of us, we save up part of our monthly salaries and bonuses, make smart investments, starting own businesses to prepare of ourselves for the day we decide to start a family. Also, like many others, with inevitable circumstances, probably works a non-executive job, or have substantial family responsibilities to care for, those who lived too modest, and those who live in the brink of “just enough”. They have love, but they didn't have the luxury of choice.
