Audrey’s Thoughts: Yum Seng!!! (x 5)
Being the new blood of A Little Dream, I am feeling a little excited right now as I contribute my maiden entry to our blog.
It was a pleasure to host and sing for the lovely couple Dennis and Fiona. I had fun working with ZQ and Ian for the first time and we had an appreciative audience who smiled as they listened to our singing and applauded for us generously after most of our repertoire.
My favourite moment (as always actually, I look forward to this in every wedding=p) for the evening was the “Yum Seng” party. Initially, the family, relatives, brothers and sisters were pretty shy to go up on stage and took some time to form the team. But once they got started, you couldn’t stop them!
After the first “Yum Seng” which I considered a warm-up, the subsequent ones only got louder and bolder. As I brought my mic to one of the brothers during the second “Yum Seng”, I was surprised that he spontaneously passed it around and my mic was lost in the midst of the enthusiastic crowd.
Just when ZQ and I were about to continue with our programme after the traditional three “Yum Seng” toasts, the crowd on stage began their fourth and fifth! Friends and relatives off-stage joined in as well and it was a heart-warming sight. I almost felt that I shouldn’t dampen their spirits and should just let the night continue this way.
Thank you Dennis and Fiona for trusting and engaging us to sing and host for your wedding. I hope the evening was memorable to you as much as it was to us. Here’s wishing you two a blissful and wonderful marriage!
