Yan Lee and Pong from Hong Kong, after the romantic, underwater proposal in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

Congratulations to Pong and Yan Lee, a scuba diving couple from Hong Kong, who got engaged underwater yesterday at Downbelow’s dive centre on Gaya island in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Pong had hatched the romantic scheme for asking the hand of Yan Lee in a special way and Downbelow was happy to help provide the perfect setting for him to ask the question of all questions.

James was their guide for the this special occasion, which required a large banner erected on the dive, complete with rings and underwater kisses.

Back on dry land at the dive centre, Sarah, their Downbelow travel consultant, had arranged flowers to mark the Hong Kong couple’s special moment.

Downbelow feels very honoured that Pong and Yan Lee chose Downbelow in Sabah, Borneo for this life-changing event.

We wish them a long life of happiness together and many more romantic dives with us here in Kota Kinabalu.
