Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 至少还有你 (At Least There Is You)
L-R: Kenneth, Hsin Yeow and Yuh Woei
When I announced that Yuh Woei would be singing a song, there was a look of complete surprise on Kenneth’s face. As he stood next to Yuh Woei, holding her hands, Yuh Woei sang,
(Very rough translation:
Even if I were give up the world, at least I have you,
The one whom I treasure
The fact that you’re here, it’s a miracle.
Even if I were to forget the world, I won’t wish to lose news of you,
I even remember the mark on your palm.)
When Yuh Woei finished singing, everyone gave thunderous applause. It was a magical moment.
P.S. I was also very surprised and happy to see Bill and Joanne at the wedding. It felt so good to catch up with them again, and for me to know that they still remembered and enjoyed our performance.

It pays to persevere. Kenneth met Yuh Woei four years ago when they were colleagues. They dated briefly, but sparks didn’t fly right away, so they went their separate ways. Kenneth even left the firm subsequently, but he never forgot Yuh Woei. When they met again along a street, Kenneth plucked up his courage and asked her out. This time, they fell in love.
A year after that happenstance meeting, Kenneth proposed to Yuh Woei while literally suspended in mid-air. They were in a cable car, enjoying the views and the sunset, when Kenneth popped the question. You know the rest.
Sing a song for your spouse!
Compliments from Kenneth:
Hi Hsin Yeow,
Thanks for adding your personal touch to our wedding. From your advice on the choice of songs, to the banquet schedule, and to the most important song delivery, they all made our banquet a more enjoyable affair. Some even thought that you were a friend of mine, as the emceeing was warm and personal.
Many of our friends commended your singing, and wanted to get your contact. So maybe we’ll see you at some of our wedding dinners in future, the same way you have seen Bill and Joanne at ours =)
Hsin Yeow: You said it! I did see Yuwei at Xiuzhen and Dehe’s wedding, and it was great catching up with her again!
