    ENTRY DETAILS: I just love these guys, they are super fun! Over all they both take care of the house they've moved into, and really enjoy being in each others company. They really do compliment each other and have a knack for making other sims smile. They've turned my little Willow Creek into something it's never been before - a giddy and fun-loving environment.

    ENTRY DETAILS: From the brief I took Dr. and Mr. Chen to be of Chinese origin. They seem to have left and went to the big city, and now they desire something quieter and more simple than the action in a busy place like San Myshuno. I took them back home, yet not so far away. There's no where that relieves your troubles and stress quite like home does. So, in the country, there's a cute Chinese style house just waiting for them. It has gardening to do, and a beautiful Zen garden to do some emotional healing. A place to relax and heal their minds. Not to mention a place to accept their clients and patients to do do the same! Such a helpful couple, I feel they can turn Willow Creek around.
    It's a two bedroom house, Master and Guest. Mostly open floor plan, Chinese decor, and a separate office for clients.

    @BuildnShare the lot testing is going really well. For the CAS entry is it only Dr and Mr Chen or can we have their BIG toddler Lilly and the puppy too?

    You can include them if you wish. Since they aren't mentioned in the Sim Entry requirements, they won't count positively or negatively against your Sim Entry score.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Dr. Chow Chen met Mike in the city. It was a bit of a whirlwind romance when Mike proposed shortly after they got together, Chow was thrilled and even more honored that Mike changed his name to Chen. Chow and Mike were already both heading for success in their fields and but when it came to the most important priorities of life, they agreed that, though they could be conventionally successful in the big city, they wanted a slower and more in-touch life--and when children came along, they knew they wanted more green space to raise them. Dr. Chen is a bit more stylish than Mike, with Mike's style being a bit more relaxed.
