Conrad Centennial Singapore

Kwok Ying and Meifang, 12 Dec 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: I Finally Found Someone I was so thrilled to receive Meifang’s feedback! The couple initially wanted to engage Bevlyn and me to perform, but they came to us a little too late. Their disappointment was assuaged when I assured them that Jun Xiong and Hui Bing would excellent vocalists. Qiuyun’s assured playing ensured that the performance went without a hitch! Feast your eyes on the beautiful photos from one of our partners, Yu Hsin, of Tinydot Photography.…

Aik Hong and Ying Ren, 7 Dec 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Matthew’s Thoughts: Collide It’s always risky when you have your bestman make a speech at your dinner, because chances are he knows all your deep, dark secrets. Thankfully, both speeches by the bestman as well as the bridesmaids (of honour, of course.) were well received, and tastefully done (I say this because poor [bride] had included in her speech “well, Aik Hong promised he would take very good care of me…..tonight.” and somehow for reasons unbeknown to me the entire…

Keith and Esther, 15 Nov 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Forever Love It takes great guts for someone to sing a song in front of a ballroom full of guests if he/she has not done it before. More so to perform on their wedding day since usually there are many things going on that day, from the traditional ceremony, photo taking, wedding dinner and so on. And so, when we found that Keith is going to sing a special song for Esther, Ivan, Ian and I were…

Paul and Melissa, 30 Oct 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Close to You I was so impressed when Melissa handed me this invitation card, along with the ‘movie ticket’ to the “The movie”. Indeed, it was like a movie premiere with life-size standees of the “lead characters” outside the “theatre hall”.   Another highlight was the 2nd march-in; to be in line with the ‘movie’ theme, the couple used the James Bond soundtrack. Their ‘brothers and sisters’ marched in first, split into 2 files, held out their colourful plastic…

Jae and Chloe, 24 Oct 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Matthew’s Thoughts: You Are So Beautiful Not much needed to be said. Jae is the coolest! I got there early to rehearse his super-top-secret surprise song, and while he initially planned to sing throughout the 2.5 minute photo montage he specially created for Chloe, he heeded our advice to do just 1 verse as I told him “eh just in case you cry la, then cannot even finish the song.” But macho man Jae assured us that wouldn’t happen. True…

Josephine and Kelvin, 30 Sep 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s Thoughts: The Right Person Here’s why I believe Josephine and Kelvin are made for each other: “Being together for 10 years was not easy. We had our disagreements at times. But we never abandoned each other. We will talk things through if we are unhappy with each other. Tolerance, forgiveness, open and honest communication are important factors which bring us closer. We often encourage each other, support each other all the way (though sometimes one of us knows…

Christopher and Christine, 29 Sep 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s: You’ve Got A Friend An enjoyable night of music, smiles, laughter and dancing children. Performing at Christopher and Christine’s wedding was, for me, a gathering of friends. Imelda and Serene (a close friend of Christopher’s, and a wedding guest) have known each other for years, so they spent time after our sound check to catch up. Serene also told me what a caring guy Christopher was, back when they knew each other through Orientation camp at the University.…

Jason and Ruoying, 21 Sep 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Imelda’s thoughts: At The Beginning When Jason and Ruoying took their first march-in into the ballroom, it looked like a Prince and Princess had just popped out of a fairy tale. As does every bridal couple you might think, but I say this with all sincerity. Perhaps it was Ruoying’s cute little tiara or even Jason’s crisp cream-white suit , but whatever it was certainly made their moment even more like the perfect fairy tale wedding come true. Looking at…

Yong Mei and Khai Yang, 4 Jul 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Sofyan’s thoughts: She’s The One Blank… I didn’t realize it’s so much easier to sing than to pen down my thoughts in a blog! But in any case, here it is. It was my debut singing performance for a wedding with A Little Dream. I was pretty nervous at first, but I soon became relaxed after meeting Yong Mei and Khai Yang. They’re such nice people, and a great loving couple. At one part of the banquet, the couple showed…

Singapore Cord Blood Bank Fundraising Dinner, 26 Jun 09, Grand Salon, Conrad (Corporate Live Music/Band)

Imelda’s thoughts: 我要你的爱 (心) ! A cosy dinner hosted behind closed doors and under the watchful eye of our DPM Wong Kan Seng’s personal bodyguards was indeed an eye-opener. Yes, we couldn’t peel our eyes off the delicious-looking dishes that were being individually served to the guests! Each plate was a tiny but ornate art piece, worthy of every succulent bite. And in between my own bites of lian rong pao (lotus seed buns) that sweet Matthew had thoughtfully bought from…

Jeremy and Hui Li, 6 Jun 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Can’t Take My Eyes Off You Jeremy got it right when he began his speech by quoting a line he found on the Internet, “It’s not about finding someone to live with for the rest of your life, it’s about finding someone you can’t live without.” After seven years of courtship, he knew, without a doubt, that Hui Li was the one for him. Hui Li, the lovely bride, was even more effusive in her praise. Jeremy…

Jazel and Darryl, 28 May 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 爱很简单 Jazel and Darryl had a good imagination of how they wanted the march-in to be like. The band would perform “When You Tell Me That You Love Me”: I wanna call the stars           Down from the sky I wanna live a day                  That never dies I wanna change the world   Only for you All the impossible                 I wanna do   (Door opens for the couple…

Victorine and Peng Kwan, 16 May 09, Conrad Hotel, Main Ballroom (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts – Somewhere Out There If you have friends who are musically talented, do what Victorine and PK did – ask them to sing a song. And that’s what Victorine’s close galfriends did by not only singing, but also playing the piano and harmonising this cutesy and up-tempo number “Chapel of Love”. It was such an appropriate song for the occasion! Victorine’s ‘sisters’ (read: bridesmaids) also demonstrated how to effectively work around the problem of overcrowding at the…

Adelaine and Kie Tuan, 1 May 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: First Of May Adelaine and Kie Tuan’s wedding was a simple yet elegant affair. There were no speeches or effusive displays of emotion during the celebration, which was, by extension, the quiet personalities of the couple. Still, there was lots of laughter, thanks to the very detailed and excellently shot video of what happened when Kie Tuan went to fetch the bride. Adelaine took quite some time to finalise the song list, but she did a fantastic…

Dawn and Edmund, 25 Apr 09, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s thoughts: Through The Years The scent of vanilla candles and cream coloured rose bouquets formed the perfect backdrop for the wedding of Dawn and Edmund, held at the Conrad Singapore. The couple specially travelled to New Zealand for a holiday as well as to take their wedding photographs. From blue skies to romantic sunsets, quiet roads to green pastures, their guests were treated to an exquisite and intricate photo montage of the couple’s wedding photographs before the banquet commenced.…

(Wedding Live Band) Jason and Pei Pei, 28 Dec 08, Conrad

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 但愿人长久 (May All Live Well And Long) Jason and Pei Pei’s love story Jason and Pei Pei first knew each other as colleagues back in 1999. They were in different departments, so they hardly communicated on work matters. Pei Pei first caught Jason’s eye when they participated in the company’s Recreation Club. Although Pei Pei was, in Jason’s words, “unapproachable” and “snobbish”, Jason was won over by her “attractiveness” and her “classy and model-like appearance”. “Commando Jason”…

David and Ling Ying 14 Dec 08, Conrad (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: A Love That Will Last It’s amazing where you can find true love: David first crossed path with Ling Ying at a staircase in Yishun Safra’s bowling alley. He was carrying four 15-pound bowling balls, two in front and two behind – he just wanted to ‘finish the staircase FAST’. As fate would have it, Ling Ying was strolling up the staircase with her friends in no particular hurry, right in front of David. In quick defence, David…

(Wedding) Sher Li and Charles, 12 Oct 08, Conrad

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Built To Last Sher Li was among the guests at Cordelia & Eric’s wedding, and after the ‘preview’, she decided to get a live band for her wedding too. And we sure were glad she made the decision, because the band had such a great time performing at the wedding – with Tony on the baby grand piano provided FOC by Conrad, Boon Chye on his saxophone, and myself on vocals, we delivered mostly jazz and english classics…

Alex and Tricia, 8 Aug 08, Conrad

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: You Belong To Me, My Love Of A Lifetime Ever since I started performing at weddings, I got in touch with people I never thought I’d meet again. Kind of like the wonders of Facebook. Tricia contacted me almost a year ago, and after exchanging a couple of e-mails, she dropped this bomb on me: we were childhood playmates! More than twenty years ago, our families lived along the same corridor, and we’d played together after school.…

Yi Feng and Aline, 20 Jul 08, Conrad

Hui Bing’s thoughts: 我願意 (I’m Willing) Yi Feng and Aline’s groomsmen and bridesmaids were one of the most innovative bunch of ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ I have ever seen. In the morning, in addition to the usual ang paos (red packets), the groomsmen were also well-equipped with another gift for the sisters – a leather suitcase filled with bank notes and gold jewellery. All fake of course! And Aline’s ‘sisters’ gave the groomsmen an interesting task to do. They had to…
