Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 世界最美的风景 (Most Beautiful Scenery In The World)

Sian Khong and Fong Cheng are a study in contrasts. Sian Khong is sturdy and heavyset, while Fong Cheng is petite and slim. Sian Khong is reticent, while Fong Cheng is eloquent. Yet, they make such a lovely couple. They have nicknames for each other – Sian Khong is “gorilla”, while Fong Cheng is “sparrow”.

That set the scene for the gatecrashing, where the bridesmaids really put the groomsmen through the grind. Instead of asking groomsmen to drink strange concoctions of sour, sweet, bitter, spicy (the four tastes symbolising life’s tribulations), Sian Khong had to write a poem with these four words. Despite being pressed for time, he did it and signed off, “From your cute gorilla”. The bridesmaids didn’t let him off so easily – he had to wear a monkey mask to meet Fong Cheng! It was a hilarious scene!

Fong Cheng’s thank-you speech was also memorable. She used metaphors to describe how marriage is like doing homework. She said the both of them would work hard at it every day, and they hoped to present a report card showing sterling results.

Bevlyn and I had a really enjoyable time performing at the wedding. With Ji Xiang at the helm, the music sounded full and rich despite the fact that we only had one musician. The audience responded warmly by clapping after almost every song.

The loudest applause was reserved for a song that struck a chord with many of the guests, who were Malaysians. It was 用马来西亚的天气来说爱你 (Use Malaysia’s Weather To Say I Love You), so I’d gladly sing it again if there’s an opportunity!

Thank you, Sian Khong and Fong Cheng, for having us at your wedding. Congratulations once again!
