There were many love balloons and petals arranged at the warm and cosy home, coupled with a large “MARRY ME” lighted display at the forefront.
“A simple and warm little surprise,” captioned Lee Teng in his post. “Please advise me in the next half of my life which I will be entrusting to you.”
On why he chose to propose to his 28-year-old girlfriend of one-and-a-half years in this cosy setting, Lee Teng revealed it all in an interview with 8Days.sg saying: “She’s not from showbiz, so she doesn’t like settings that are too large-scale. She’d also feel awkward if I made the proposal overly grand or fancy.”
For the same reason, Lee Teng has also tried to refrain from exposing too much of his relationship with Gina to the public as he did not want her to feel burdened.
Lee Teng Marriage Proposal: No details on marriage yet
The pair had only gone public with their relationship last February despite being together since October 2018, with dating in view of marriage, admitted Lee Teng to 8 Days.
According to Lee Teng, while the proposal was planned a few months back, even before the COVID-19 outbreak. Even so, there are no confirmed plans on when they will register or hold their marriage yet.
Lee Teng however, shares that he hopes to get married before he hits 4o years old, according to Chinese Daily Zaobao, only that it is difficult for him to set a date.
He says that he will only share further details with the public once it is confirmed.
The pair mentioned about a “seven-year itch” in both their Instagram posts, which led many to wonder if it was a seven-year courtship that the couple went through.

While Lee Teng said that the seven-year itch is true, he addressed the confusion of a seven-year courtship to 8Days.
It had only meant that Lee Teng and Gina were first introduced seven years ago in 2013. The person who brought them together was Lee Teng’s younger sister who played cupid for them.
“Because she wanted to watch a real-life drama unfold in front of her eyes,” said Lee Teng.
