Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: The Last Time
Kudos to Alex and Angelia for being so frank about the ups and downs in their 8-year courtship! Rather than glossing over the difficulties they faced, the couple arranged for the video presentation to show how they weathered the four major emotions in their relationship: 喜 (happiness), 怒 (anger), 哀 (sorrow), and 乐 (joy). The last emotion was depicted by a comic drawing of the couple clutching jugs of beer!
The next slide showed the couple with their backs turned while the sounds of strong winds were heard. That represented the long period of time when Alex and Angelia were deep in the throes of a cold war.
Nevertheless, they still harboured strong feelings for each other. The turning point was when Angelia fell seriously ill. Alex showed his mettle by showering Angelia with care and attention during this time.
As the saying goes, 苦尽甘来 (after the bitter comes the sweet); the relationship took off like a jet plane, and culminated in a romantic proposal in front of their closest friends (Alex didn’t believe in subtlety)!
Knowing Alex and Angelia’s love story made it easy for Judy, Adeline and I to inject our emotions into the songs. We had a really great time performing for the couple and their guests, who showed their appreciation by clapping enthusiastically after almost every song.
Congratulations Alex and Angelia! Thank you so much for engaging us, and may you always experience joy and happiness in marriage.
