A chance dinner changed the course of this couple's entire lives

The couple first met in China in 2011 at a dinner organized by Zimeng's parents with an international exchange student to know a little bit more about the program itself before they agreed to send her far away from home to fulfill her dream of learning French and getting her Master's degree. This student happened to be Bolun, and that was the start of their story. On their 8th anniversary, Bolun proposed in their favorite restaurant in Paris, Affinité.
