HONG KONG - A young couple participating in the pro-democracy protest created a rare light-hearted moment at the protest site in Mong Kok Sunday morning with an impromptu wedding proposal.
Mr Yau Chi Hang, 22, got down on his knees and proposed to his girlfriend Crystal Chan, 21, on 6.58am, South China Morning Post and Ming Pao Daily News reported. Ms Chan, wearing a plastic parka which has become a standard gear of the protestors in the week-old campaign , said yes. The couple then embraced and kissed each other, drawing cheers from the crowd as cameras clicked away, the reports said.
The couple then chanted "Leung Chun Ying step down" and "real universal suffrage", the Post reported. Asked about children, they were quoted as saying: "We hope our next generation won't have to be occupying the streets as they'll have true universal suffrage."
They then celebrated the occasion with a fish fillet burger.
