Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: When I’m 80
I’d love to be in Alexis’s shoes when his wife, Joanne, said to him, “Thank you for being my everything. When you proposed, I said yes because I knew you’re a good person, and that you’d take good care of me for the rest of my life.”
It was such an honest delivery I couldn’t help but be touched. Alexis was so moved he could not speak but he pumped his fist up in the air as if he’d scored the winning goal in the World Cup Finals.
The relationship started when Joanne noticed how attentive Alexis was to her needs and wants, by offering her the plate of Hokkien mee he was eating in exchange for her plate of carrot cake when he realised she preferred the mee. Amazingly, this simple act made Joanne look at Alexis in a different light, and paved the way to lasting and enduring relationship.
Joanne’s a big fan of Bevlyn’s vocals, and even sang along with her when Bevlyn performed her first single from her debut EP, 当我八十岁(When I Am 80), a soft-rock number about the hopes of being with a loved one until the age of 80. Joanne even brought her copy of the CD for Bevlyn to autograph!
Another memorable moment: Joanne’s brother was so moved by Bevlyn’s delivery of 同手同脚 (Synchronised Actions), a song that Joanne specially chose for her brothers, that he went over to Joanne and enveloped her in a bear hug!
