Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: When You Love A Woman

First dates can be horrifying. (Sounds like deja vu)

That’s why I take my hat off to Alan, who met three women, not just one, on his first date. The ‘target’ was Julie, friend of Meng (colleague) and Vanessa (Meng’s wife). “After much persuasion”, Julie agreed to meet Alan, but brought along Meng and another female friend Alice.

Despite the odds, Alan managed to hold his own, and charmed Julie into a 3-hour conversation at a restaurant. They were so immersed in their conversation that they clean forgot about our friends!

As the emcee, I got Alan to tell me how he proposed.

“I proposed on 14 Jul 2008. We intended to celebrate my birthday in advance, so we had a romantic dinner. Somehow I felt it was the time for me to act. The proposal was made while we were enjoying the sea views in a cable car after dinner. It was a night I’d never forget – partly because I’m actually scared of heights! I was dizzy from the numerous rocky swings before I went down on bended knees to propose.”

Note: This story came in handy just before I sang the second march-in song When You Love A Woman

I had just returned from an overseas trip and was itching to perform. I was thankful that I managed to scratch two itches at the wedding: one to sing; another, to perform with Serene. Serene’s soulful voice blows me away every time, and Qiuyun’s confident playing was icing on the cake.

Congratulations Alan and Julie!
