Find me a date: Wen Jun and Hazel

These city kids ditched Tinder and let us play matchmaker. Here’s a blow-by-blow of their blind date

The date: our daters had a meal at Le Binchotan

First impression

Hazel: ‘I thought he was a pretty cool and fun-loving guy.’

Wen Jun: ‘She’s well dressed, cheerful and friendly. We clicked from the get-go.’


Hazel: ‘Our conversation was really engaging and we joked a lot. Romance-wise, it’s a little too early to tell.’

Wen Jun: ‘We got along quite well and could talk about a lot of things. With time, I think it could possibly go somewhere.’

Awkward moment

Hazel: ‘Not really – we started chatting as soon as he arrived. It was very comfortable throughout.’

Wen Jun: ‘We were daring each other to eat the charred pumpkin, which I tried in the end. Actually, it was more funny than awkward.’


Hazel: ‘I actually lost track of time! When it was time to leave, we exchanged name cards and called it a night.’

Wen Jun: ‘We stayed past 10pm and had about four glasses of wine each. Then we both went back to our own offices.’


Hazel: ♥♥♥♥♥ ‘Overall, it was a good date and I couldn’t have asked for more. We’ll see how it goes from here.’

Wen Jun: ♥♥♥♥♥ ‘Given that I came with no expectations, the date was pretty decent. I had a fun evening.’

Le Binchotan

The atmosphere

‘The lighting was just about right, the choice of background music was good and the service was impeccable.’ – Wen Jun

The food

‘The chicken skewers were tender and juicy. The food came in good portions and was just right for the two of us.’ – Wen Jun

The drinks

‘I had a basic Hendricks and tonic and a few glasses of Chardonnay – two options that’ll never go wrong.’ – Hazel
