Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet)
Louis and Maria were brought together by their strong Catholic faith. That vital connection, once made, meant that their love was unstoppable. It crossed time zones and continents and strengthened with each passing day. Louis, the unflappable groom, had this to say, “I know some of you thought I was going to be a fair weather friend, but I proved you wrong.”
Maria chimed in, “Louis is a Singaporean boy at heart. He loves Chinese food, including char siew bao (pork buns)!”
Louis also likes the Teresa Teng chestnut, 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet). I chose to perform the song as the couple made their second entrance into the ballroom, and I couldn’t resist the chance to get everyone into the act. The guests were extremely sporting, and all the guests sang the song with me as the doors opened. It was a pleasant surprise for Louis and Maria!
The emcee, a former school mate of Maria’s, even asked Louis to give his own spin to the lyrics of 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet). To his credit, Louis did a fabulous job, and he serenaded Maria with his own version of the song.
Another highlight for me was their first dance. I was thrilled when Maria chose the beautiful John Lennon classic, “Grow Old With Me”, because it is one of my favourite songs. Louis and Maria hugged each other tightly as they danced to this song, and when I sang the final lines
I was reminded of how they fell in love.
Congratulations Louis and Maria! May your love for each other remain sweet and everlasting!
