Be­yond Bor­ders

Prestige (Singapore) - - VIP -

Not even dis­tance could keep Jef­fer­son Tan and Tif­fany Pri­malia from fall­ing head over heels in love. Tan, who is based in Cebu, Philip­pines, and Pri­malia, who lives in Sin­ga­pore, met serendip­i­tously when their busi­nesses be­came en­twined with the other. For­mal meet­ings be­came ca­sual dates and the duo is now set to tie the knot in De­cem­ber. To an­nounce this good news, the cou­ple and Pri­malia’s fam­ily threw an elab­o­rate en­gage­ment party. Held at The Fuller­ton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore, the party was in­tended as a way to share their joy with fam­ily and friends, some of whom may not be able to travel to the Philip­pines later in the year for the wed­ding cer­e­mony. Some 440 guests at­tended — in­clud­ing Con­gress­man Johnny Pi­mentel and Con­gress­man Pros­pero Pichay Jr from Manila — to shower the cou­ple with con­grat­u­la­tory mes­sages. “Walk­ing hand-in-hand with Jeff into a room full of fa­mil­iar, beloved faces was an un­for­get­table mo­ment,” re­calls the bride-to-be. The ball­room was dressed to an Ori­en­tal theme with pe­onies and dragon-print fans as decor — a fit­ting back­drop to the sump­tu­ous Chi­nese din­ner spread. En­ter­tain­ment that evening in­cluded a per­for­mance by fam­ily friend Wang Chen, who sang “Never Gonna Be Alone” by Nick­el­back at Pri­malia’s re­quest.
