Weilin and Han Piow, 12 Dec 09, Hibiscus Room, Grand Hyatt (Wedding Live Band)

Imelda’s thoughts: Love Of My Life

Han Piow has two loves in his life. Chicken rice was apparently the first, but that was till Weilin came along and replaced it as Han Piow’s reigning first love. Han Piow related how he realized that he was in love with Weilin and that she was THE ONE for him, and ironically, it was with the help of his other love – Chicken rice that Weilin steered her way through his tummy and into his heart.

After singing the 2nd march-in song “Wonderful Tonight”, Han Piow surprised everyone with another lovely tune. “Love of My Life” is Han Piow’s personal composition that was inspired by and written as a surprise for Weilin. (This groom can sing! Maybe A Little Dream can consider engaging him as one of our singers!)

Han Piow’s secret e-mail to Hsin Yeow
“Hi Hsin Yeow,

Firsty, this is a surprise for my wife-to-be Weilin. This email and its contents should not be revealed to her by any chance.

After the 2nd walk-in to Wonderful Tonight, instead of You Belong To Me, I’m gonna sing my own composition Love Of My Life for her on stage.

The song is guitar based, but could really do with some drums, keyboard, sax, bass and harmony.

I know there’s not much time left to practice but I really hope you can help me work out an arrangement by Saturday. Please let me know.

Thanks!
Han Piow”

I see Han Piow as a meticulous guy, not typically last minute like many others I know. Apart from having his entire speech written in his iphone, he was well prepared with details that surprised me. Han Piow approached me as the band was setting up, settled all the admin matters before we went on to discuss their march-in songs. So well thought out was he that he even volunteered to carry on dancing with his wife so we didn’t have to end the song “At Last” before its final verse. I didn’t even have to mention or suggest anything!

Throughout the night, Melvin repeatedly told me how pretty and sweet Weilin was, and that she’s got such lovely sharp features (I totally agreed with him). James was just really happy with the delicious chicken rice we had for dinner. Ivan looked absolutely cool in his sunglasses that he had to put on because the videographer had a bright light shining in our faces so he could take a clearer video of us. I just hope he didn’t get too clear a view of my increasing wrinkles!

This was yet another great wedding celebration! I’m so glad I get to use one of the loves of my life – singing, to spread joy to others!

Thank you Han Piow and Weilin for inviting us to perform, have a wonderful life together! God bless!

Compliments from Weilin:

Dear Hsin Yeow,

A very happy new year to you.

The band was fabulous! Our guests had a really good time and we have been passing your contact around to our friends who are looking to wed this year!

We haven’t contacted our photographers for the photos yet because we just got back from overseas last week. Will get in touch with you again on this.

Thank you so much again and do send our best regards to Imelda and the rest of the band. It really was a blast to have you guys at our wedding.
