When Roen Cian Nagapan first laid his eyes on Carey Ng, he was instantaneously intrigued by her beauty and found himself drawn towards her enigma. It was the preliminary bikini competition for Miss Universe Malaysia 2013 and a young Carey was competing on stage, unaware of the romance that was about to unfold soon after. “I have never seen her in my life and I wanted to get to know her,” says Roen who is no stranger to the entertainment business as he is the co-founder of The Group. “The first impression is not the most important for me but how you grow into the relationship. I watched Carey all the way from being a participant in the pageant to winning the pageant, so obviously she possesses a strong character,” he opens up further about their four-year relationship.
Three months after their first encounter, Carey eventually agreed to their first date, which took place at Rakuzen. “He picked me up and bought me a bottle of perfume as he had just returned from a trip to Taiwan. We went for drinks at Tate after that and it was quite casual as we were getting to know each other,” says the former Miss Universe Malaysia 2013.
Dubbed as one of KL’s hottest power couples, Roen and Carey have been open about their romance from day one, as they have no issues displaying their affection for each other on social media. However, despite their public lives, Carey sets the record straight by revealing that beneath all the glitz and glamour, they are just an ordinary couple reveling in life’s simplest pleasures. “People think that we lead this fast and glamorous life but what we also share in common is our downtime. We find comfort unwinding in front of the television and these are fuss-free moments that we can enjoy together,” she reveals.
