Nothing makes Malaysians come together more than the game of badminton and doubles pair Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik gave the country a reason to celebrate ahead of National Day last month. They etched their names forever in Malaysia’s sports history books by clinching the country’s first ever World Badminton title.

They returned to a superstar’s reception in KL after capturing the title in Tokyo. After making the country proud, Aaron was able to turn his focus to his wedding and real-life partner off the courts saying to The Star, "During this period, I also plan to have my wedding reception after a long delay." He has two daughters, Albee Chong Rui and Alyssa Chia Shin, with his wife Maggie Goh Mui Kee.

Aaron Chia showed off his patriotism in a truly memorable way: by hosting his wedding dinner on 16 September, Malaysia Day. Both Aaron and Maggie looked stunning and glowing at the wedding dinner, which was held at the Majestic Hotel in KL.
