Two SAF officers propose to girlfriends at commissioning parade, amid cheering cohort
For any cadet, the commissioning parade is an occasion to savour and celebrate.
Two newly commissioned officers in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) managed to take the occasion up a notch when they proposed to their partners during the ceremony – all while cheered on by their peers.
In a TikTok video posted on Sunday (Sept 10), the two officers can be seen kneeling in front of their other halves.
Simultaneously, while surrounded by a crowd of cadets-turned-officers, they both went on bended knee and held out a ring.
The two women, of course, didn’t hesitate to say yes.
Well, that's one way to make a special occasion even more momentous.
