Bevlyn’s Thoughts: I Will Follow Him
I must say that…what blew me away for this wedding was the warmth of Jessica, Choon How, and their wedding guests. Shutters Restaurant provided a very cosy and intimate setting for the wedding dinner, but the people were the ones who lit it up 🙂
We realised as we move through the dinner that there are very talented people among the guests! First off, when we were taking a break, young Nigel came up to us requesting to perform with the piano. How could we say no?! So he performed a great classical piece to guests, and that really put a smile on everyone’s face.

Then a lady came up to me and ask to sing a couple of songs. She addressed herself as ‘Big Aunt’, and what great spirits she had! She took on 2 songs “多可爱的玫瑰花“ and “我只在乎你”, which she spontaneously requested for. Many thanks to Ein ein and Ivan who were talented enough to helped the performance successful. My favourite moment was when Choon How and Jess jumped to a dance right infront of everyone while she was singing the songs. What a fun couple! 🙂

And if you think that was about it for the dinner, no! That was really just warm up to the grand finale. Choon How (probably inspired by ‘Big Aunt’) marched up to us to request to sing “讲你知”, a Cantonese song which Jacky Chung had written and sung for his wife. Again, Ein and Ivan picked up the song really fast, and made the serenade a blast with everyone in the room. Jess was especially delighted with his rendition, as could be seen by her moving in to him toward the end of the song.
And last, but definitely not least, was when Jess decided to ‘return the love’, by singing ‘I will follow him‘. She told me earlier that she always sing this song to Choon How because she follows him overseas for his work. What a cute idea! I was part of the singing ensemble, but I decided I really must take a photo of Jess and her lovely bridemaids singing the song! 🙂
Thank you Choon How and Jess, we wish you lovely spirits and loads of joy in your marriage. Congratulations!
