Sales and love

Apart from the games, the highlight of the night was the “A Love Story” mystery video.

In it, Tay and Mr Wong enacted how they met – in Channel 8 drama fashion now less. Afew years ago, Tay had demanded to see Mr Wong, who was then MediaCorp’s vice-president of sales, as she was buying advertisements for her company (then known as The Health Club). Tay said she had wanted to ask for a good price and Mr Wong kept avoiding her as he didn’t want to be badgered for a discount.

They eventually met through a mutual friend, Lifebrandz’s CEO Bernard Lim, three years ago.

But it was only when they met again a year later, through friends, and when Tay subsequently took Mr Wong to church that their relationship turned romantic.

The video – which drew loud laughter from the guests and can be viewed at – showed Tay shouting at an assistant as she demanded to see Mr Wong.

In another scene, Mr Wong is seen reprimanding the assistant for not being able to “handle” Tay.

The most romantic part of the evening was when Tay and Mr Wong lit the unity candle, a Christian wedding ritual to signify the holy unity of a couple.

The pair also knelt in front of their mothers and presented them with large bouquets of flowers. When the time came for the big smooch, Tay said she wished for it to end  quickly as she is not comfortable with public displays of affection.

Christopher Lee said he was missing his actress-wife Fann Wong badly throughout the proceedings. Said Lee, 39: “I was so lonely without my wife. Fann is filming in China and called me before the wedding dinner to ask me to give her regards to Jacelyn and Brian.

“They are very well-matched and make a very classy couple. We’ve known Jacelyn for quite some time and we’re very happy for her.”

Lee and Wong got hitched last year in what was deemed the wedding of the year. In contrast to their wedding, which saw Lee haggling for an hour with Wong’s “sisters” 
before he could pick her up from her home,Tay and Mr Wong had chosen to do without the traditional tea ceremony, bridesmaids, bestmen and haggling “sisters”.

Throughout the dinner, the 1.7m-tall bride also remained in her $11,000 Vera Wang white tulle strapless ball gown with floating crystal petals and horsehair waist bow, whichwas sponsored byThe Link Wedding. She didn’t change into other outfits as brides often do during their wedding dinners.
