TV shows and dramas often portray close to impressive life events that one cannot help but imagine themselves to also be in the shoes of the lead character. Impossible as it may seem, it turns out that some events which we often see in dramas can also happen in real life!
Just like this amazing encounter which changed the lives of the now husband and wife. According to World of Buzz, their fairytale-like love story started 11 years ago when a Taiwanese woman surname Lim got into a severe car accident and almost lost her life because her blood clotting mechanism wasn’t functioning at the optimum level. Luckily, her condition stabilized after ten packets of blood and two packets of platelets were transfused into her body to stop the bleeding.
Fast forward seven years later, Lim went back to Hsinchu, a city in northern Taiwan, to take over her family business and that’s when she met Lian, a glutinous rice dumpling seller. We don’t know who made the first move, but things hit it off and they soon became a couple.
One day, both of them were talking about their respective near-death experience and it suddenly got Lim interested to find out who’s the blood donor that saved her a decade ago. She kept calling hospitals and blood donation centers but was told that the information of the donor is confidential.
She kept persuading the staff and stated that she only wanted to know her savior’s identity. The staff finally gave in and revealed the surname, which is Lian. Instinctively, she read out her husband’s identification number and the staff was stunned.
“How did you know that?!” the staff asked.
Apparently, Lian started donating blood and platelets since he was 20 years old, and it was his platelets that saved Lim’s life 11 years ago. After being in a serious relationship for two years, they tied the knot in March 2018. (Wow! This story is simply unbelievable and amazing at the same time! Indeed, destiny has its way of surprising people.)
After their story became a hot topic, Lim urged everyone to take part in blood donation while her husband jokingly said donating blood may land the donor a wife.
We only wish for the continuous happiness of this couple and for their love to last a lifetime.
