Zheng Quan’s thoughts: Love Is A Powerful Spell
The story of Sean and Jean proves that love can be quite a powerful spell as it influences and changes a person dramatically.
Sean and Jean met at a mutual friend’s gathering at a chalet. At that time, Sean did not leave a very good impression on Jean, who thought he was unfriendly and quite “beng” (hostile looking). However after a few days, they got to know each other better and Sean took the initiation to date Jean out, and their relationship developed from then on. 12 years later, Jean has completely changed Sean from an “Ah beng” to a gentleman he is today. During Sean’s thank you speech on the wedding night, he specifically thanked his wife and some friends who came into his life and changed him into a better person.
That evening I arrived at the hotel ballroom and met Sean at the reception area where he was busy ensuring all things are going well. I quickly clarified with him a few details I needed for my emceeing work, and he directed me to the banquet assistant for all other needs, including a dinner service for the band. I thought it was really thoughtful and kind of him. A nice gentlemen.
The wedding dinner commenced promptly as we welcomed Sean and Jean into the ballroom. After which, the guests were presented with the 1st dish. Then it was time for live performance from our band and I started off singing a cheery song L-O-V-E which the guests seemed to like very much. Fallen was the next song as performed by my co-singer, Serene, and it was very well received too.
The band’s live music complemented the evening’s program with the list of love songs Sean and Jean had specially requested earlier on. Other classic love songs included “月亮代表我的心” (The Moon Represents My Heart)，”制造浪漫” (Creating Romance), “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “I Only Wanna Be With You”.
The beautiful setting of the hotel’s Riverfront room just added on to the lovely and homely atmosphere. We were really fortunate to have a lively audience who was so supportive and generous with their applause.
A big thank you to Sean and Jean for leaving their trust in us to entertain their guests and also letting me host your dinner reception. We sincerely wish you guys happiness, good health and great fortune!

Compliments from Sean:
I can’t really tell how well they sang since I was too busy running around. But I heard fantastic feedback from my guests. A few wanted to get contacts to engage in their coming wedding. I guess this is clear indication of a successful performance.
I would like to thank A Little Dream for a job fantastically performed. I would say money well spent.
