All the team at AsianD8events love a happy ending and we have been privileged enough over the years to have heard some great success stories from individuals who met at our events. Here are just a few of our favourites.
"...Well where do I start... Going back some time now I attended an over 30's Hindu
speed date night at Opium bar in November 2003. I remember the night vividly, 24th
or 25th November 2003. I came to the event with a friend of mine and we waited patiently
in the registration queue. My friend pushed in front of me and as fate would have
it, I was assigned number 47. The place was alive with excited chatter and nervousness.
I think for most it was a first time experience. It was my 2nd.
A warm up comedian came on to lighten everyone's mood before the evening's festivities
began. I sat down in front of Sheila, she was also number 47. Due to the seat being
disproportionate to the table, I basically looked really short. And the first thing
Sheila ever said to me was "You're a bit short aren't you?" I explained about the
chair, and we laughed it off.
Let the speed dating begin... So Sheila was my first date on that night, now you're

and She approached me, we started our banter where we had left off. And then she
asked the question which probably changed my life.. 'So when are you taking me out?'
when you give me your phone number' I replied. So we exchanged numbers and I suppose
that's when the real romance began. I even called her on the way home!!! The next
day I spent 4 hours on the phone with her. So we started dating and it was like
bringing pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together, we just fit. Love ensued quickly after.
Forward now to February 12th 2005..I proposed on this day on national TV on the
Ant and Dec Saturday night takeaway by jumping out of a cake, almost naked. You
can watch the video below
And she did say yes...
We married in October 2005, bought a house together in 2006 and our son, Eashan
was born on 13th March 2008. He is just over a year old now and really is the light
in our lives. I would like to thank you for everything that has happened. If it
wasn't for you I would not have met Sheila, I would not be as happy as I am today.
And we would not have Eashan. And if Sheila ever reads this I just want to say 'I
