I joined hundreds of couples renewing their marriage vows yesterday evening at the Marina Barrage. There was a mass releasing of love balloons as we rededicate our love for each other. This event created yet another romantic shared memory in our married life. I hope the other couples have the same feeling.
Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports as well as Second Minister for Trade and Industry, was on stage with his wife and youngest son to renew their marriage vow too.
Earlier in the day, it was raining cats and dogs. Luckily it stopped, just in time, for this event. :) The comfy evening breeze, cool weather and romantic purple and pink colours everywhere put visitors in a mood for love. Head of Marriage Central Advisory Board, Ms Anita Fam and her other half looked ecstatic.
Couples, young and old, reaffirmed their love and commitment to their other half. There were many elderly couples with their extended families. It was heartening to see such a huge turnout at this record-breaking mass commitment of love.
I couldn't stay long as I had to rush to my nephew's wedding at the Esplanade.
