Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

A “short and sweet” introduction about Lay Hian and Yeou Yee (YY):

We met 7 years ago at university and he has been my ultimate best friend, soulmate and everything else ever since. We were just like any other couple (meet, eat, chill daily) until two years ago, we made the major decision for YY to join his brother & uncle in Guangzhou for a business venture.

Since then, we only met up about once every two months. YY don’t agree but I say – absence makes the heart grow fonder. The longer we lived so far apart, the more we felt incomplete without each other. That was when we felt ready to tie the knot……

YY is the type who will readily spend his last dollar on some frivolous shoe or bag I like and then scrimp on his meals or refrain from buying the latest comic; he will readily spend on cab fare to send me home from town then take a long 1.5 hr bus ride back home; he waits for hours (sometimes 3hrs) without complaint when I am caught up at work, and he can go to extremes to make my parents happy knowing that my happiness is his happiness.

It was my first performance at Grand Shanghai and I found the place totally charming. The sound system was great, and there was a piano onstage for Ein Ein to work her magic. Shirley, the banquet manager, was efficient and experienced, so we were well taken care of at all times. This is definitely a choice venue if the theme of your wedding is vintage charm.

I was bowled over by Lay Hian’s compliment at the end of our performance, “Thank you, Hsin Yeow, the wedding ambience was just what I wanted.”

Congratulations, Lay Hian and YY!
