Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 心愿便利贴 (Wishes On Sticky Notes)
I was initially afraid that KK and Irene’s wedding would be affected by the roaring engines from the Singapore Grand Prix, but my fears turned out to be unfounded.
No one was even loitering to catch the live action at a projector screen the couple so graciously provided just for their guests.
Everyone was there to celebrate the union of KK and Irene, two lovely people who were clearly in love. Their friends even put up a special item and serenaded the couple with a recent hit 心愿便利贴 (Wishes On Sticky Notes)
My night was made complete when one of the guests was asked to perform onstage. I was gobsmacked when I realised the guest was none other than Ken Tay! I used to listen and sing along to his songs back when…I was younger.
He sang the Teresa Teng chestnut 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet), which brought the evening to a wonderful close.
Congratulations, Irene and KK! Thank you so much for engaging us.
