Surprise wedding proposal from man in a bear suit

It all started with the messaging app Ms Cheryl Foo, 29, and Mr Alex Wee, 32 used to chat with each other when they started dating.

The couple liked the virtual stickers that came in the popular chat app Line, and Ms Foo took a special liking to Brown, the bear character with a perpetual downturned smile.

When Mr Wee saw the Line pop-up store outside Wisma Atria last week, he devised a plan to pull off a surprise wedding proposal to Ms Foo with Brown's help.

On Saturday, Ms Foo was led to the store by her sister, 26-year-old Clarissa. The two stood in line for about 10 minutes, waiting to take photos with the mascots of Brown and Cony the rabbit, two popular characters from the app.
