Alex asked Kelly what her favourite place was and then he remembered that Kelly’s happiest and favourite place was at the tree out front of her grandmother’s house in South Africa.

Alex said: “Every time she thinks of her happiest place she thinks of the time she spent out there with her friends and her family as a kid”. Kelly’s parents and sisters live in Australia, but the rest of the family reside in South Africa, so he wanted a way to make her feel like she was surrounded by her entire family as he proposed to her.

Few weeks later, Zero Latency knew they were able to transport Kelly through virtually to her happy home (South Africa).
At the last weekend, Kelly and Alex happily blasting away at virtual zombies with a bunch of other Zombie Outbreak players.
