Joy ride on a love boat

Six newly-wed couples all in the same boat - happy as larks, excited and very much in love - on Sept 20, 1981.

This "slowboat to tea" idea for couples at the Chinese Gardens in Jurong belonged to Jurong Environmental Engineering, a JTC subsidiary which had been devising interesting leisure schemes. The nuptial ride was the firm's way of generating publicity for dragonboat rides in the lake.
