Tammie and Benny, 29 Jul 09, Hilton Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: You Make Me Feel Brand New

This is what Tammie wrote to me:

We’ve been together for 9 years. I’ve known Benny when he was 24 and I was 17. We started out as friends (like older bro-younger sis rship) but eventually started liking each other ….

We are total opposites – e.g. i love listening to jazz songs while he likes Chinese songs (but i’ve slowly converted him to become a jazz lover). i like drinking wine, chilling out but he hates the night scene and drinking. i love to read while he’s more of a “PSP” person – he can play games for hours..but we’re still together after all these years..haha..so even though we are like black and white, we feel that we complement each. For instance, he’s decisive while I’m not, he’s a perfectionist while I have a laid back attitude, he likes to do the housework while i’m lazy to do anything 🙂

Two things came to mind after reading this:
1. No prizes for guessing correctly who chose the repertoire for the band
2. What a lucky girl – Benny likes to do the housework!!???

The wedding started off with the couple’s childhood photo montage, followed by a video of the couple’s solemnisation ceremony in Singapore last March. The guests also shared the festivity of the couple’s wedding in Thailand last October through another video. Finally the last pit-stop, a banquet in Singapore, with Tammie’s Thai relatives invited to the banquet too!

We were happily singing the jazz repertoire chosen by the couple, and halfway through the performance, we received a song request from an auntie; the song was “月亮代表我的心” (The Moon Represents My Moon). We thought, ok we can do it, so let’s do it for her! To my surprise, she walked up to us soon after with another song request “甜蜜蜜” (Honey Sweet). Well, we could, so we performed the song, to her and her friends’ delight!

Thank you Tammie and Benny (what rhyme!) for inviting us to be a part of your wedding celebration. We wish the two of you many many more 9 bissful years to come. Congratulations!
