Proposal on tram wins zing, zing, zing of her heartstrings

Clang, clang, clang went the trolley
Ding, ding, ding went the bell
Zing, zing, zing went my heart strings
From the moment I saw him I fell — Trolley Song 

Raj Dhawan and Yvonne Choi are happily engaged to be married after the groom-to-be organized a surprise proposal Saturday on a specially-rented TTC antique streetcar. The vehicle was timed to be parked outside Yvonne’s nail salon (a visit organized by her twin sister and Raj’s collaborator). The tram was filled with friends and family to share in the moment. All in all, a remarkable bit of managing things. May the rest of their lives go so smoothly. Raj and Yvonne met a decade ago in school but were linked up three years ago by a chance meeting at Montreal airport where she was between assignments as a fight attendant. He was early for his trip back to Toronto on a business trip. She saw him, they sat down in a restaurant and the rest, as they say.  Ding, ding, ding indeed
