Real Love Works 2010 - RT/WW

Real Love Works 2010 by Marriage Central is back for the 2nd year!

On Saturday, hubby and I enjoyed a romantic sunset picnic for two at Fort Canning courtesy of Marriage Central. As I was on wheelchair, the organizers made special arrangements to accommodate me. I would like to thank them for making it an enjoyable evening for my husband and I.

I received a lovely picnic basket containing a picnic mat, snacks, drinks and an exclusive couple game! The red rose was from the Chairperson of Marriage Central, Anita Fam.

It rained heavily that morning and it was drizzling when I arrived at the venue. Some people left after collecting their picnic baskets but many chose to stay. Luckily, the rain stopped and the cool weather was perfect for watching a movie under the stars.

Mayor Zainudin Nordin (Central Singapore District) and his wife were the guests-of-honour at Real Love Works 2010 which saw more than 1000 couples registered for this event.

Mayor Zainudin Nordin sang a love song to his wife who was moved to tears.

Participants played a couple game "In His Shoes, In Her Heels" and discover things about each other that they never knew before.

There were more onstage games and activities. 10 lucky winners walked away with a S$200 dining voucher each in a  Lucky Draw.

Amid lush and green surroundings, the participants enjoyed a romantic sunset picnic and the romantic comedy “Music and Lyrics” starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore..
