He often wondered what must have gone wrong between them. He had tried his best to make things work but somehow, she was always critical of his approach. He could not decipher the reason behind each and every incident when she willingly took up fights. Even today, he would smile at the memory of the moment she said yes after finding the ring at the bottom of long glass of Singapore Sling. He often felt jealous of her having moved on with life so quickly and easily.
His lawyer shook him off to say “Congratulations! Your marriage is successfully nullified”.
P. S – Singapore Sling is a gin-based cocktail from Singapore. This long drink was developed sometime before 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore. Primarily a gin-based cocktail, the Singapore Sling also contains pineapple juice as the main ingredient, along with grenadine, lime juice and Dom Benedictine. Giving it the pretty pink hue are cherry brandy and Cointreau. Bartender Ngiam deliberately chose to give the cocktail this rosy color.
