Love Is When We Click

Authors: Go Chengdu


If you marry the right person, every day is Valentine’s Day, as the story of a Japanese chef and his Chinese wife tells us.
Next to the Dongmen Bridge in downtown Chengdu, there is a Japanese restaurant that serves an array of popular Japanese dishes, like broiled Japanese sukiyaki, sushi and ramen.
And you may find the owners of the restaurant, Suito Sei from Japan and Vanilla from Chengdu, working busily at the shop.
The Chinese-Japanese pair had their first encounter and then got acquainted in Shanghai in 2010, when Vanilla helped in a bar of her friend after work.
"I found Vanilla was a dedicated, hardworking, and considerate girl," said Suito Sei, recalling the days in Shanghai, "I was attracted to her."
"The most important thing is that we two click and understand each other," Vanilla noted, "He is nice and kind-hearted. I like his personality and the way he treats me."
It was not love at the first glance, but gradually they were confirmed that the other was the right person.
In 2012, Suito Sei was appointed as General Chef of a ramen restaurant in Chengdu, and he has settled down in the city ever since.
Vanilla came back to Chengdu with Suito Sei and the two married in the same year. "I gave up my job and came back in pursuit of love, and I can take care of my old parents as well."
In Chengdu, Suito Sei found Japanese cuisine was getting growing popularity among local people ― the ramen restaurant he worked at opened 7 outlets expanded within just 3 years. "I'm very optimistic about the prospects of the catering business in Chengdu," he noted. And the couple took actions and opened their own shop in 2015, and then another shop in 2019.
With Vanilla' company, Suito Sei has been to many places in Chengdu and other parts of Sichuan, including Dujiangyan City, Mount Emei, Leshan Giant Buddha. They like the panda sculpture at Chengdu International Finance Square (Chengdu IFS).
"It's a great place to visit. It makes you want to take a selfie with your lover."
"For a successful marriage, mutual understanding is very important," Vanilla revealed the secret to their successful marriage, "For instance, I never speak against his eating out with friends after work. We never had a falling out with each other, and every time I felt unhappy or worried, he would comfort me and try to make me happy," said Vanilla.
Suito Sei took a sip of tea and said: "The process of being together is important. All I can say is I am very happy with my wife."
Their declaration of love:
Long-term love is from consistent mutual tolerance.
