Hauyin and Doug
There were two strangers from worlds apart: A Chinese girl and a Jersey boy. Little did they know, they were meant for each other. The Chinese girl is me: let me tell you our story.
My name is Hau Yin; I am a city girl. I am originally from Hong Kong but moved to Vegas for my college career. In 2006, I decided that a change of pace would be welcome in my life. I moved to quaint New England, a territory I barely new existed 2 years prior. In Stowe I have met Doug: the love of my life.
Well to be honest it wasn’t exactly love at first sight, rather it was “chores” at first sight. Doug and I were housemates! I had a busy traveling job and would only see Doug between trips at which time we would do chores together. After a year of non- stop traveling I have decided to settle in Vermont.
My first “Vermont winter” was 2007. Doug was the best tour guide one could dream of. He showed me how charming and exciting Vermont was. We spent countless hours together. We experienced all winter sports and activities: from snowshoeing to skiing to snowboarding and let’s not forget about hiking and riding motorcycles. We were spending so much time together that it was obvious that our friendship was blossoming into something more. Together we saw an adventurous future with a special connection. The rest is history. Doug and I flew to Honk Kong to meet my parents. There, he asked them for my hand in marriage. The best part? He did it in Cantonese.
