Sauyi has been staying at his in-laws' in Chuadanga. His sister works in Dhaka.

Faria said: “Sauyi and I first communicated through WeChat on Facebook. My family liked him too. He taught me a bit of Chinese. After all the formalities are completed, he will take me to China. My sister-in-law works in the garment sector and lives in Dhaka. Sauyi and I communicate through Google translator and I hope I will be able to learn the Chinese language soon.”

Sanwar Hossain, Faria's father, said: “When we were informed about their relationship, we asked Sauyi to visit us. After meeting him, we found him to be gentle and polite. They got married in Dhaka earlier, but we held a celebration for them here (Chuadanga) as well.”

Besides locals, people from neighbouring villages came to see the groom too.
