While Malaysian badminton sportsman, Datuk Lee Chong Wei, is typically known for his collection of impressive sports titles, our local hero rarely ever shows his soft side in public. Until now.

There @wongmewchoo There was a time. A long time ago. She was there. Sometimes looking at me. Sometimes ignoring me. A naive me was too shy to ask for her phone number, too stupid to know a gal’s mind. As dumb as I may be, one of my teammates is dumber. He told me to pluck rose petals to see if she liked me. I said I didn’t have the money. He said pluck shuttlecock feathers. I followed. Baru I tahu shuttlecock 16 feathers More than 16 years later, she is now the mother of my two beautiful sons. Happy 7th wedding anniversary my wife. I’m the luckiest guy on earth when you agreed to be my wife. Sorry for not being with you now due to work commitment. People said I’m lucky to have won many titles. But to me, I feel luckiest to have won your heart. 天有地，我有你，有缘恩爱才夫妻。 今年是我们的结婚7周年纪念日，但我有工作在身，没办法和你一起度过，谢谢你把这个家打理得妥妥当当，把两个儿子照顾得好好的，让我在外工作无后顾之忧。 大家都说我很幸运因为我赢得了很多头衔奖项，但我知道我之所以幸运是因为我赢得了你的心，有你的陪伴我的世界才会如此完美。 一生一世执子手，不离不弃共白头。❤️
Last Sunday (10th November), Datuk Wira Lee Chong Wei posted a series of wedding photos and penned a heartfelt caption on Instagram for his beloved wife to wish her a happy anniversary.
In a heart-melting post, the national hero shared the adorable tale of how the two fell in love, beginning with how he was too shy to ask for her number, so he took the advice of his friend:
“As dumb as I may be, one of my teammates is dumber. He told me to pluck rose petals to see if she liked me. I said I didn’t have the money. He said pluck shuttlecock feathers.I followed. Baru I tahu shuttlecock [has] 16 feathers.”
Even though it was a slow start for the badminton star’s love life, the two eventually got together, and Chong Wei couldn’t be more grateful:
“I’m the luckiest guy on earth when you agreed to be my wife. People said I’m lucky to have won many titles. But to me, I feel the luckiest to have won your heart.”
As of today, the IG post has garnered over 109,000 likes! Netizens are gushing over how sweet our dear Datuk is:
“No wonder my teh ais was bland today, Dato took all the sweetness and put it in his post…happy anniversary, Dato’ and wife.”
Wishing you and your wife a long, happy marriage, Datuk Lee Chong Wei!
