Xunkai and Sandar, 7 Nov 2010, Cinnamon Room, Novotel Clarke Quay

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 选择 (Choice)

Xunkai and Sandar met in Brisbane, Australia. They were studying at the Queensland University of Technology. According to Xunkai, he approached Sandar when she was having snacks at the waiting area outside a lecture room.

When I mentioned this during the reception, I joked that Sandar must have looked extremely sweet while having snacks. Xunkai laughed and nodded.

A cartoon animation shown during the dinner gave more details of their relationship. According to the video, Xunkai and Sandar had found each other attractive and started having long MSN chats. Xunkai even pretended not to know his work in order to get Sandar’s help. But Sandar needed Xunkai to do more, and asked if he would sit beside her during lecture. Xunkai did, of course, and the rest was history.

I didn’t get to mention how Xunkai proposed. Here’s what he did: he bought a digital photo frame and gathered the photos to put into it. After viewing all the photos and reliving the happy memories, Sandar came to the last photo, which contained the question, “Will you marry me?”

Performing at Xunkai and Sandar’s wedding was great fun. First of all, we were overjoyed when the guests kept clapping and giving us encouragement after every song. It was a wonderful feeling.

Bevlyn and I also fell in love with the combination of Ein Ein’s playing and Julian’s virtuosity with the violin. He even strummed it like a guitar when it came to the song, “I’m Yours”!

Congratulations, Xunkai and Sandar! May you enjoy a blissful and bountiful marriage!
