Micheal is a meat-centric cook, but his wife is vegetarian. The husband and wife may not have similar taste in food but both share the same belief that "Food is love". The couple has been married for more than a decade but the bond they share is still strong as ever without any signs of divorce. Hope their marriage will last for many more decades.
