MEDIA Corp stars, Melaka-born Christopher Lee and Fann Wong have decided to go ahead with their wedding this year, with the consent from their parents.
After the death of Lee’s father in February, the couple, both 38, needed to register their marriage within 100 days to proceed with the wedding.
Malaysian and Melaka born actor Christopher Lee and his fiancée Singaporean actress Fann Wong announced they would proceed with their wedding plans.
