Before Sentosa Island was decked out with theme parks and other attractions, it used to be a rather empty plot of land with just pathways, a beach, and a fort. That's about it.
But even then, the site was an exciting spot for a date. Young couples felt like they were going on little day trips with their special someone, even if it only included walking around and chit-chatting. Love was simpler back then, perhaps we could learn a thing or two and put the emphasis back on the person we're with instead of the thing we're doing while we're on a date.

'Sentosa was a nice escape from Singapore, or it at least felt like it. Though it was simple and honestly quite barren at the time, it was a great place to just walk aimlessly around, eat, and chat with the person you love. Cameras were also really huge back then, so it was pretty eventful having to drag that big ol’ thing around.'
