Two traffic police officers were questioning her friend on the Seletar Expressway (SLE) for having a tinted visor on her motorcycle helmet.
But all Madam Sheena Toni, who was riding pillion on her friend's motorcycle, could think about was how cute one of them was.
As luck would have it, a mutual friend tried to matchmake her and a policeman, who turned out to be one of the officers, six months later. At the meeting, they did not recognise each other.
Madam Sheena and Corporal Mohammad Faris exchanged numbers and started dating.
They realised they had first met on the SLE in 2009 only when she asked Cpl Faris to share his experiences as a traffic cop.
The 25-year-old guest relations officer said: "He shared a story where he stopped two girls on the SLE. I was surprised and prompted him with more questions such as what the girls were wearing, their names and the bike model.
"I remembered catching a glimpse of his name tag, and I asked for his full name. True enough, he was the same officer.
"It felt like a dream had come true. I had always wanted a husband in the police force and he turned out to be the same guy whom I had wanted."
The couple dated for a year before getting engaged. They got married last year.
Madam Sheena shared their story on Stomp as part of its annual Valentine's Day Love Story contest. It has since got more than 63,000 views.
The couple are expecting their first child in August.
Madam Sheena said: "It doesn't matter whether it is a boy or a girl, as long as the child is healthy."
