Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: From This Moment

Similar to Iris and Teck Chin, who had two wedding parties and engaged us to perform for both, Gavin and Pui Yee put their faith in us for their wedding celebrations on 19 and 26 Jun.

I performed with Serene and Matthew on 19 Jun at Straits Room, Fullerton Hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The intimate space meant a smaller guest list, and I had the feeling that Gavin and Pui Yee had a close relationship with each guest. They spent half the time mingling around and chatting with their guests; this would have been quite impossible in a bigger ballroom.

It was also an afternoon of sweet surprises. First of all, we celebrated Gavin’s birthday and got Pui Yee to serenade her husband by singing From This Moment. Gavin returned the favour and sang Pui Yee a song too. Then, I sneakily suggested that they dance along to one of the songs we performed, and the obliging couple agreed!

Gavin took the words out of my mouth when he said to me, “Thanks for making this impromptu wedding so wonderful!”
