Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 爱情的魔力 (The Power of Love)

When I arrived at the ballroom, I was welcome by a guy who looked familiar. It wasn’t until he introduced himself as Stefan and Cheryl, who tied the knots in Dec 2008, that the light bulb in my head lit up. In psychology, this is what I would call memory by pairing :p

Kian Yong heard the band when we performed at Stefan’s wedding, and so he decided to get the band back for his own wedding. It was an amusing sight when Stefan tried to assuage Kian Yong’s jitters over the evening’s programme, and Kian Yong retorted, “After my wedding, I’ll also tell everybody ‘Don’t worry, everything will be ok!’“. 🙂

8 years ago, Kian Yong saw Pauline’s photo through her girlfriend, and nudged her to introduce Pauline to him. So Pauline’s girlfriend set up a blind date (blind for Pauline). Pauline first thought that Kian Yong was a “very quiet guy who stays at a corner while i appeared to be “dao” to him”. Well, we all know now that all these did not last, for their regular phone chats soon developed the two into a couple!

After the photo montage of the couple was presented (‘handmade’ by Kian Yong), Jixiang played the lovely “Here Comes The Bride” to set the ambiance.

Then Kian Yong and Pauline marched in to a piped-in music of another version of the “Here comes the bride” to achieve layering of music. We enjoyed the songs for that evening, some new and fun songs we did include:

我的愛 (王若琳 Joanna Wang)

愛情的魔力 (姚莉) – yes this is the Chinese version of “That’s Amore

Les Champs Elysees (Joe Dassin)

We were also pleasantly surprised to see Kenneth and Charlene (Dec 2007) amongst the guests invited!

Congratulations to Pauline and Kian Yong! May your days together as husband and wife be filled with sweet joy and happiness!

Compliments from Pauline:

Hi Bevlyn,

Was looking for you after my photoshoot but was told that you’ve left. Thought of having a photoshoot with you.

Anyway my sis & cousins are your fans, & they enjoyed your performance. One of my girlfriends, Jace Soh, used to be your singing student! Although we were busy but we did hear some of your songs.

My parents were impressed by your talent!
