In 2002, Andrea collapsed from sudden liver failure and in a touching demonstration of love, Pierre, her then-fiancé, chose to undergo a risky emergency and gave a part of his liver to her.
"All that I could think of was just to save her, this girl whom I could no longer imagine my life without," Pierre recalls.
Their beautiful story has a happy ending as the couple celebrates their 10th wedding anniversary next year.
Join Pierre and Andrea on their journey as a couple with Love & Co.'s exceptional couple and wedding rings - the perfect symbols of extraordinary love.
Whether you're dating or getting hitched, Love & Co. has a range of rings to mark any milestone in your relationship.
Pierre Png and Andrea De Cruz's union is a perfect example that encompasses these five pillars of marriage, represented by the LVC Promise range. "Whatever it is that the other wishes to do, we do our best to be there to support each other," says Andrea De Cruz.
Both lovers of durian, Pierre brought Andrea to a makeshift stall along Dempsey Road for a feast of the fruit on their first date. The couple then took a joyride on Pierre's motorbike after, "That she was willing to take the risk riding on my motorbike and loving the same food, it meant a great deal to me that she enjoyed just being together and doing simple things," Pierre shares.
After three years, Pierre was ready to pop the question, with a special radio dedication. But he ended up bursting into the bathroom, while Andrea was on the toilet! "I was so nervous that I tried to park the car 20 times when I got home with the ring. Then, I didn't know where to hide it, so that's when I decided to do it on the spur of the moment, before I spoilt the surprise," he reveals.
The couple's wedding came a year after they weathered Andrea's liver failure. "We'd had so much on our minds before that so we just wanted a fun, rock-concert wedding," Andrea says. "My favourite moment was sharing a private video that I'd made for Andrea, featuring all our bloopers at work," Pierre adds.
Anniversaries are private occasions for the couple, "As public figures, we value low-key, intimate moments over big events." Pierre confesses, "We celebrate being together twice yearly - May 7, the date of the transplant operation, and my birthday," Andrea says.
