Bevlyn’s Thoughts: On The Side Of Me

I am always excited when I am asked to perform at Megu Hall, because I do feel a little thrilled to be closer to the new icon of Singapore, the Singapore Flyer. Ok pardon me for this cheap thrill, but there is also the other thrill of eating at Popeye!

James and I set up quickly at Megu Hall, ran through the songs a fair bit then zoomed down to eat at Popeye. The guests in the ballroom filled up at around 830pm and we kicked off the start of the banquet with the lovely song  “These Are The Moments”, which in my 2 cents, has got to be one of the most appropriate march-in songs ever:

These are the moments I thank God that I’m alive
And these are the moments I’ll remember all my life
I’ve found all I’ve waited for, and I could not ask for more…

I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
And every prayer has been answered
Every dream I’ve had’s come true
Yeah, right here in this moment
Is right where I’m meant to be
Here with you here with me…..

The other songs which I enjoyed singing are:

T-Shirt (Shontelle): Ok it’s not a suitable wedding song, but Kelly loves the song and requsted for me to sing it anyway. The song is so melodious and the groove so hooky I was so happy I could to sing it:

没有如果 (No Possibilities) – A Fish Leong song with a light J-pop flavour to it; I was happy to see some guests (and a waitress) singing it along with me in-between their bites!
The guests were a quiet bunch, but seeing some of them sing along to some songs gave me the assurance that they were enjoying the sets. Surprisingly for me, the loudest applause came after the Mandarin classics eg. 月亮代表我的心 (The Moon Represents My Heart), 我只在乎你 (I Only Care For You), and Corrine May’s songs (On The Side Of Me, Journey) !!

Anthony, the very cheeky groom, and his brother entourage provided much laughter-inducing content for the guests (and the band) in the video which highlighted the customary wedding’s morning events. I really could not have guessed from his cool exterior that he is actually that funny (he even told me later on, that he considered joining Jack Neo’s team!!).


Thank you Kelly and Anthony for making us part of your wedding celebration. Congratulations, and may you have all the joy and laughter in your marital journey with each other!

Hi Bevlyn,
