Singapore women too picky?

Posted by jtsmyth8 on July 30, 2008

Twice, doctors told him he may not live for long – once when he was a child, and then again two years ago.

But private equity investor Alvin Lim, 43, great-grandson of Singapore pioneer Lim Nee Soon, has not only survived, he has now got married.

His bride is a Vietnamese less than half his age, whom he met through a matchmaking agency.

Mr Lim did not succumb to either the blood disorder he has or an infection he got from a hospital.

On 12 Jul, he exchanged vows with Miss Mary Nguyen, 20, in the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. A wedding dinner was held for 88 guests at the Ritz Carlton Millenia the following day.

Mr Lim’s great-grandfather was a founder of one of the banks that later merged to form OCBC. He also dabbled in rubber and pineapple planting, was one of the founders of The Chinese High School and was a philanthropist. His statue now stands in Yishun Town Park. (story)
