Long-time DEAL.com.sg fan proposes to girlfriend via the DEAL.com.sg platform, “in front” of almost a million witnesses
Singapore – 16 February 2012 – While most men prefer to propose marriage to their girlfriends privately, there is a growing trend of public proposals. Due to social media sites, such as YouTube, more individuals are revealing how they propose marriage in public. Yesterday, Dexter Ng proposed to his girlfriend, Shermane Ten, via DEAL.com.sg website. This is the first time a proposal has been made on an online marketing platform in Singapore. This proposal would have been seen by nearly one million DEAL.com.sg customers, who visit the DEAL.com.sg website, receive email alerts or Facebook updates on a daily basis.
To make the proposal via DEAL.com.sg, Dexter pre-recorded his proposal. This was uploaded onto DEAL.com.sg’s website yesterday evening (15 February 2012). A representative from DEAL.com.sg met with Shermane and showed her the proposal on DEAL.com.sg website. She was then surprised by Dexter, who proposed officially on a bended knee. Fortunately, Shermane agreed! While the online proposal took place on DEAL.com.sg, the live proposal took place at the Marina Bay SkyPark Observation deck.

“DEAL.com.sg has made my proposal ideal! I knew that I wanted to propose to Shermane in a unique and creative way. She loves surprises and is generally an outgoing person, so I was sure that a public proposal would be a great idea. We are both long-time DEAL.com.sg fans, and she regularly checks the latest deals either visiting the DEAL.com.sg website or through checking her handphone. Because of this, I thought it would be great to demonstrate my love to her publicly and propose via DEAL.com.sg,” said 27-year old Dexter, who began dating 24-year old Shermane in September 2009.
“We are indeed honoured that Dexter wished to propose to Shermane via DEAL.com.sg. This indicates the extent that we have become part of our customers’ lives, and to be involved in something as important and personal as a proposal is indeed heart-warming. In fact, we are so delighted with Dexter’s proposal through DEAL.com.sg, that we are offering the happy couple a 3-day/ 2-night travel deal to Phuket. I understand that they have previously bought a similar holiday package to Phuket through DEAL.com.sg, which was one of the highlights of their relationship. We hope that this second holiday can give them many more happy memories,” said Patrick Linden, Chief Executive Officer of DEAL.com.sg.
After being uploaded onto DEAL.com.sg’s facebook page, the proposal videos have already garnered some 200 ‘Likes’ within just half a day. Dexter and Shermane plan to marry sometime next year and look forward to enjoying many more great bargains on DEAL.com.sg.
