Our Proposal

Dennis and I had known each other since 2013, we had been through so much together, including a year long-distance relationship, which involved a lot of tears and goodbyes, plane rides, and late night video calls.  He proposed with a huge “Will You Marry Me?” banner visible from the sky!  It was pointed out to me by my tandem skydive instructor.  This special day will definitely be one of my great memories of all-time where I will never forget, on a Chinese Valentine’s Day in Melbourne.  We both broke into tears, during the wedding proposal. We are getting married!

Our Wedding

We had always dreamed of having an outdoor garden wedding in Sabah, our beloved hometown in Borneo.  We did some research, and Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa was our best option for our outdoor wedding venue in Sabah!  We had fallen in love with this resort with its splendid wedding pavilion on the beach, lovely garden, great hospitality, amazing facilities, and mesmerising sunsets. The resort is very tranquil and beautiful so without hesitation, we decided to have our wedding at Rasa Ria.

Ms. Alison from the Events Team was our personal wedding coordinator and she assisted and guided us throughout the entire wedding planning.  We are so grateful to have Alison as coordinator as she has great interpersonal skills, is incredibly friendly and her calming presence kept our wedding anxieties at bay.  She worked well with our own external MC, photographers, videographers and our desserts team to make our wedding the perfect day.

We truly appreciate the hospitality of all members of Rasa Ria who had involved in our wedding.  Which includes the Events Team who have assisted us in all dealings, the front desk staffs who have helped us to perform the group check-in, the waiters/waitresses who have served our guests during the function, the celebrant who has officiate our solemnisation, the singer who has performed during our wedding, and all other staffs who has contributed prior to/during our wedding.  Kudos to the entire team! Our wedding day will not be perfect without them all.

Our Honeymoon

Our honeymoon started with a 2-night stay in the Ocean Wing of Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria before heading to Japan.  We are so happy to spend our time in the resort.  We had the chance to try kayaking, it was our first time. The hotel room was gorgeous!  We loved the romantic honeymoon turn-down, the floral petal bath, and the mesmerising sunsets!  Before we departed the resort for Japan, Alison and the members of Rasa Ria team sang us a lovely goodbye song, “Sayang Kinabalu”.  In short, our entire wedding at the Shangri-La Rasa Ria was PERFECT!!!!

Having your special day at the Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resort & Spa will guarantee a perfect celebration! If you would like to know more pop over to their profile page or contact the lovely Alison at or call (6088) 797 915.
