These days, it is not really uncommon to see interracial couples, particularly someone from Asia marrying someone from Europe or America or some other place. After all, there really are so many dating apps to match singles and anyone actively looking for love!

But a couple recently went viral for meeting at a singing app! They were both not looking for someone to love as they enjoyed using the singing app, Smule, but when they were matched for a song, Bambang “Awan” Irawan and Arzum Balli would soon fall in love. This was in 2016.

Living in Austria, Arzum was mesmerized by Awan and would quickly professed her love to him; but the Indonesian cleaner only thought that she was joking. After all, he was used to getting rejected by the girls in his hometown who didn’t think much of him because of his job as cleaner.

Despite the 13,000-km distance between Austria and Awan’s hometown in South Jakarta, Indonesia, Arzum traveled to get there and prove to this Indonesian cleaner that she loves him – and it does not matter whether he is a cleaner as long as they are in love!

At first, Awan’s family did not approve of Arzum for him. They could not imagine their Awan being married to this European woman, but Arzum proved to the family that she loved him very much.

Every day, she would go to his workplace to bring him food or simply hang out with him.

Eventually, the family warmed up to Arzum and Awan’s dad finally gave them his blessing. The two got married last August 18 in a simple ceremony in Cilandak, South Jakarta.

Arzum will only be staying in Indonesia for a few weeks and has to go back home to Austria. But Awan is planning to follow; though he still has to learn the German language and get an A1 certificate so he could get a job in Austria.

But the two are willing to make their long-distance relationship work – and would still enjoy creating music together on the singing app where they met…
