PM Lee and Mrs. Lee celebrate Valentine's Day in San Francisco

Could these two BE any sweeter? PM Lee delighted his Facebook fans earlier today (15.02.2016) with a Valentine's Day greeting and this playful snap, taken while he and Mrs. Lee were on a work trip in San Francisco. 

"A photo to celebrate Valentine’s Day," he wrote, inserting his usual smiley-face emoticon. "A belated Happy Valentine’s Day to all at home!"

Love lesson: Don't take yourselves too seriously -- doing silly things together can help keep the spark alive, even after decades of marriage.

PM Lee and Mrs. Lee celebrate Valentine's Day in San Francisco

Ever the social media buff, PM Lee posted a Valentine's Day greeting on Instagram with the same caption, but with a different pose. Either he and Mrs. Lee are naturals at this, or they have been practising in secret. 

Love lesson: Cutesy couple photos get a lot of flack these days, but screw the haters! Post whatever you want. If you love somebody, go ahead and let the world know about it.

When Christopher Lee surprised Fann Wong with flowers at an event

When Christopher Lee surprised Fann Wong with flowers at an event

Christopher Lee put all husbands to shame when he turned up unexpectedly - and looking rather macho - at a media conference with a bouquet of flowers for Fann Wong. *cue awws* Yes, you may argue that some women don’t like flowers, but it is not the bouquet but the gesture that matters. Guys, are you taking notes?

Love lesson: Don't stop at marrying someone who makes your heart flutter. Marry someone who will be your personal cheerleader, who will be happier than you at your happiest moments, and sadder than you at your saddest ones. And this sweet post on Chris’ Instagram to the missus on their anniversary pretty much sums it up: “My dearest wife, we’ve been married for six years. Let’s remain loving for 60 years or even, 600 years!”

Alfred Sim’s over-the-top marriage proposal to Tay Kewei
10 Feb 2016

Alfred Sim’s over-the-top marriage proposal to Tay Kewei

Alfred Sim spared no expense while proposing to his fellow singer and girlfriend of ten years, Tay Kewei. In May 2014, Kewei walked into a restaurant ready to perform for a client’s solemnization ceremony, but it turns out that the gig was merely a facade for an elaborate proposal, as she was shocked to see about 40 members of her friends and family in the room. And in the middle of them stood Alfred, singing and strumming to her song, So in Love! A few rounds of confetti and poppers later, Kewei was led to a floating stage, where Alfred got down on one knee and popped the question.

But the proposal didn’t end there. Thinking it would be “anticlimactic” to go back to everyday life after getting engaged, Alfred whisked Kewei to Tokyo that very night, where she and Alfred were greeted by three friends who filmed and photographed their mini holiday. And as the final touch, Alfred surprised her with a pre-wedding photoshoot at the end of the trip. The trip cost upward of $50,000.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: how could their wedding possibly top that kind of gesture? It turns out that Alfred had more tricks up his sleeve, as the two enjoyed a gala-themed, star-studded wedding at the Shangri-La Hotel in January 2015. 

Love lesson: Money can’t buy you love, but it can definitely buy you a “spoil market” engagement. Don’t ever hold back from your beloved!

When “Kandie” appeared out of nowhere

When “Kandie” appeared out of nowhere

Nothing is more sexy than a secret relationship, especially when you’re in showbiz. In 2013, Andie Chen and Kate Pang revealed that they’d not only been dating on the down-low for a year (despite brushing off earlier rumours), but that they were married and expecting a child. When questioned by the media, Kate and Andie admitted that they’d felt like “puking” at the thought of playing lovers in Break Free. Andie joked that Kate is old and ugly, while Kate replied that the joke was on him, since he now has to look at her for the rest of their lives.

Today, Kate and Andie are one of the most fun couples to follow on social media, thanks to their continuing banter and their adorable son, Aden. They recently launched Kandienetwork on YouTube to document their domestic life and to give parenting tips, showing that beyond being lovers and best friends, these two make excellent creative partners.

Love lesson: Never say never! While it wasn’t love at first sight for Kate and Andie – both acknowledge their relationship was a slow burn, and that it was different from their previous relationships –  it’s clear that these two are a perfect match.

When Qi Yuwu couldn’t bear to eat Joanne Peh’s cookies

When Qi Yuwu couldn’t bear to eat Joanne Peh’s cookies

Is it just us or has Qi Yuwu been showing a different side of himself ever since he and Joanne Peh, 32, got hitched one and a half years ago. Not only has the usually private actor become more chatty, he openly shared nuggets about their relationship with the media – he once penned a letter to Joanne and revealed could not take his eyes off her during their first date. Awww…

Love lesson: The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Yuwu enjoys cooking for Joanne, while she prefers baking. But the sweet treats don’t always end up in his stomach. The 39-year-old actor revealed he once brought some of Joanne’s cookies on a work trip but could not bear to eat it. “I put it in the fridge and when I look at it every day, I think of her. But [the cookies] are really delicious!” he said.

When Zheng Geping and Hong Huifang cuddled for the “paps”

When Zheng Geping and Hong Huifang cuddled for the “paps”

Even after 22 years of marriage and two kids, Zheng Geping, 51, and Hong Huifang, 56, are still as loving as ever. The doting husband revealed that he makes it a point to kiss Huifang every night before they go to bed and occasionally makes little surprises for her. Just check out the couple when they celebrated their wedding anniversary with friends in December. We’d be super embarrassed if our parents canoodled in public.

Love lesson: Always dote on women because they are made to love (Geping’s words, not ours). Ever the romantic, Geping never fails to send Huifang flowers on her birthday, their anniversary and Valentine’s Day, even when he is overseas. And till today, the actor still remembers what Huifang wore on their first date. The devil is in the details.

When Pierre Png saved his wife’s life

When Pierre Png saved his wife’s life

Pierre Png and Andrea De Cruz’s love story is like something out of a Nicholas Sparks novel (but with a far happier ending). Pierre first spotted Andrea walking out a hair salon, and was captivated by her beauty, but they didn’t get together until years later when they were both single. Things took a turn for the worse in 2002, when Andrea suffered liver failure after taking Slim 10 diet pills. Pierre sprang to the rescue, donating part of his liver while she was on the verge of death.

Today, after 12 years of marriage, the two are as much in love as ever. Their fortitude in taking things one day at a time, in the face of Andrea’s health. Not only have they adopted a bundle of “furkids”, but Pierre frequently surprises Andrea with cute gestures, like flowers, or taking her out for churros when she’s craving them, while Andrea cooks delicious meals for Pierre – which he lovingly documents on Instagram.

Love lesson: True love requires sacrifice. While Andrea has shared that there’s a risk her body could reject the liver someday, she’s blessed to have a man who sticks with her through thick and thin, even at a cost to himself – and meanwhile, Pierre is lucky to have found someone who fights bravely in the face of death. 

Priscelia Chan has a hashtag for hubby Alan Tern

Priscelia Chan has a hashtag for hubby Alan Tern

Has it been eight years since Priscelia Chan and Alan Tern tied the knot? From photos of the couple on Pris’ Instagram, you would be forgiven for mistaking they are still basking in newlywed bliss. In fact, Pris even has a hashtag for Alan - #ATmyhubbybuddybaby. The 38-year-old actress shared in an online interview that they make it a point to go on dates regularly to spend quality time together and keep the flame alive.

Love lesson: Never go to bed angry. Priscelia and Alan are so mild tempered that they don’t raise their voice at each other, preferring to just talk or hug it out. And it helps when the pair have no qualms about making fools of themselves or acting cute to entertain each other. Said Priscelia: “Maybe it’s our acting job that’s become deeply ingrained within us and Alan, though tired, would play along and then we’ll burst out laughing!”

When George Young and Janet Hsieh broke out of the friend zone

When George Young and Janet Hsieh broke out of the friend zone

Perhaps it was only a matter time before George Young and Taiwanese host Janet Hsieh, who met ten years ago, decided to be more than just friends. In their wedding vows, Janet admitted that she’d had a crush on George since Day Two – she’d thought he was gay on Day One – while George “joked” that he knew he was in trouble ever since she’d drunkenly approached him at her 30th birthday party to tell him that she wanted to have his babies.  

“One of the scariest things you can do, though, is to tell someone that you love them first,” he said, voice trembling amidst barely repressed sobs. “You made me do that, not with words, but by being who you are. I love you, I promise to continue to love you, and to look after you wherever the world takes us.”

If that weren’t aww-inducing enough, you can watch the ceremony for yourself in the couple’s wedding video, which Janet released in late January for their one-year wedding anniversary.

Love lesson: The friend zone is negotiable. If you love someone, get drunk and tell them.

Bonus PRO TIP: Janet shared that George thought of her as a “dude” for years, until one fateful night in 2014, when she cooked for him while he was sick. He began seeing her differently, while she realised that she enjoyed taking care of him. So what are you waiting for? Get in the kitchen and start practicing!

Bonus: PM Lee Hsien Loong and Ho Ching’s couple shots in Korea

TRUE LOVE IS REAL, Y’ALL. We haven’t seen such an adorable moment between world leaders since Barack Obama fist-bumped Michelle after securing the Democratic nomination. And we certainly didn’t expect Ho Ching to post about it so candidly on her Facebook page. Relationship goals, right here.

Love lesson: It’s often tempting to “act cool” when you’re in a relationship – you know, by rejecting flowers, refusing to take couple selfies, or scoffing at people who show a bit of PDA. Loosen up! If our Prime Minister can be this cute with his wife, so can you with your bae.
