In the bride’s words: “Willy and I met 15 years ago when I was working for him as an intern. We’ve kept in touch as friends through phone calls, saying ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ — nothing more.
“In the summer of 2002, I received an e-mail from Willy, letting me know that his job was about to end, and he didn’t know where he would be going from there. Willy suggested we should go out for pho as this could be our last time hearing from each other. I thought to myself, ‘Why not?’
“Meanwhile, Willy had already made plans for the date. All I was prepared for (was) a bowl of pho. Instead of pho, Willy took me out to a nice dinner at a beautiful golf course. Since then, we’ve been best friends.”
Both work for the City of Seattle, Tuyen Nguyen at City Light in the Credit Department and Willy Chow for the Department of Executive Administration in the Special Accounting unit.
