Taxi drivers get surprise reunion dinner at Singapore Flyer

SINGAPORE: Three lucky SMRT taxi drivers had a truly unexpected reunion dinner on Saturday.

They were honoured by the company for their sacrifice on important dates such as the eve of the Lunar New Year.

When 47—year—old Lim Choy Ann picked up his passenger, little did he know he was in for a big surprise.

Upon arriving at his passenger’s destination — the Singapore Flyer, Mr Lim was greeted by his family.

Mr Lim is one of three drivers treated to a sumptuous reunion dinner in the Flyer’s rotating cabins.

They also received a red packet from Coca—Cola Singapore to cover their earnings and the day’s taxi rental fee.

He said: "Initially I thought we were going to a regular eatery, who would have thought we would be going to such a posh place."

Senior executive for Public Affairs and Communications at Coca—Cola Singapore, Tiffany Goh said: "This Chinese New Year, we really want to bring some smiles and happiness to a group of unsung heroes who ply our streets tirelessly every day, even today on Chinese New Year’s eve. So, we’re really glad to be able to surprise them with this unexpected reunion dinner tonight."
