“Just One Date To Find Her Soulmate”
All it took was one date, organised by Lunch Actually for Evangeline Lee to find her soul mate Fabian Lim. In June 2007, the couple had their first meeting at the Blue Cafe at Stamford. Unknown to Fabian, Evangeline, 36, was on her first date as a member of Lunch Actually and was looking forward to meeting the former professional pianist.
“My first impression of him was that he was very humorous and someone who was not very good with managing time. He was 45 minutes late!” laughs Evangeline, an internet marketer.
Her wait was well worth it; the couple hit it off and was soon off to Geylang to savour durians before they called it a night at a pub along Liang Seah Street.
“I thought she was pleasant looking, patient and communicated well,” adds Fabian, 38, an entrepreneur.
