When a Malaysian man proposed to his girlfriend, they never imagined they'd become role models for young romantics around the world.
The emotional video of the proposal at a restaurant has been viewed nearly 4 million times online within a week.
And it's picking up some celebrity endorsements. Ryan Seacrest finds it to be a heartwarming way to wrap up the year. Singer Christina Perri says it made her cry -- and she was honored that her song "A Thousand Years" was used in the clip.
It's quite a surreal twist for the groom-to-be. Timothy Tiah says he's always been allergic to the idea of getting hitched -- partly because some of his older friends suffered failed marriages.
But he says of his bride, "There's no other girl I've ever considered marrying." - AP
