Eric and Francine, 18 Jan 09, Grand Ballroom, Hilton Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Umbrella

Behind Eric’s quiet demeanor lies a romantic heart. He took great pains to hide the fact that he had already engaged us 6 months prior to his wedding celebrations with Francine. Despite several close shaves, he was successful!

When Francine walked into the ballroom, her mouth gaped into a small O as she saw us. If she were a comic strip character, the speech bubble above her would read, “Why are they here?”

At her blog, Francine wrote,

“When I turned the corner, I was totally stunned! Standing on the stage were Bevlyn and Hsin Yeow from A Little Dream! I heard them at some wedding shows and thought they sang very well. I wanted to engage them but little boy wouldn’t let me cos he said it’s too expensive. I did suspect a little when he agreed to handle the music but he covered it up so well that my suspicion wore away after awhile. I stopped in the middle of the walkway and he had to drag me to the stage..lol~ And he was very very pleased at how he managed to give me such a huge surprise :P”

Good job, Eric!

It wasn’t the only surprise that night. Once again, let’s hear it from Francine,

“As if that surprise wasn’t enough, 1 stick collaborated with him to make a video of my friends and relatives giving us their well wishes. They even got my grandpa to say a few words!! By then I was so touched that tears just flowed from my eyes and his auntie was so nice to walk over to offer me tissue..lol, so paiseh :P”

Compliments from Francine:

Hi Hsin Yeow and Bevlyn,

Thanks for the lovely performance at our wedding on Sunday night! It was a wonderful surprise and thanks for arranging this with Eric for me.

It was really a fool-proof surprise (cos I can usually see through his surprises..haha! :P) Even though I didn’t really get to hear all the songs you guys sang, the feedback I got from our guests was great!

Keep up the good work and see you guys around! =)

Love,
Francine

Song To Recommend:

Umbrella – Rihanna’s smash hit has been covered by many, and I find Natalie Gauci‘s version particularly memorable.
