Tatlergrams of the week: Valentine’s Day celebrations
Love was in the air (and flooding our Instagram timeline) earlier this week, our society friends employed creative and unconventional ways to enliven the day of love.
Distance and busy schedules weren’t barriers for Stephanie Chai, who received a bouquet of roses first thing at 7am, while Benjamin Yong received a pair of cheeky bananas in lieu of flowers.
Yong Mei Fong celebrated with a girls’ night out, while cute pair Marisa Soraya and beau Kuyim Naquiyuddin kicked it off bright and early at a spin class-themed birthday party.
Scroll through for warm, fuzzy feelings.
