Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Sweet Happy Life
I had a great time performing for Caleb and Wendy, that I was still slightly high the day after their wedding. (good way to beat the Monday blues!)
The guests definitely have a part to play in this – they are one of the most spontaneous and fun-loving groups I had ever seen. They gave loud cheers during the 1st march-in and laughed loudly over baby pictures of the newly weds during the morning.
They also loved the songs that Caleb and Wendy had chosen for the night, comprising mainly oldies. We were indeed thrilled by their encouraging response as some guests (especially the table next to us) clapped and sang along to our performance such as “Can’t Take My Eyes off Me”, “Every Breath You Take”, “Way Back Into Love” and even “Hero”.
Singapore Idol 1st runner-up Sylvester Sim was the emcee for the evening, and he managed to coax Caleb into singing a few phrases of the classic <<月亮代表我的心>> (The Moon Represents My Heart) to Wendy. He later brought the house down with an almost perfect rendition of Alex Toh song <<把你藏起来>> (To Hide You Up).
Another highlight was receiving three beautiful roses (just nice, one for each of us) from the children of the guests. One sweet little gal, who I think is about two years old, shyly waved goodbye to me after handing me the flower, which melted my heart to bits.
Thanks, Wendy and Caleb for inviting us to be part of your wedding. We had a blast performing for you guys.
