Hui Bing’s thoughts – All I Want For Christmas Is You
It was a wedding that I would love to attend as a guest, for the speeches by Su-Anne, Kaay Juan, and their cousins were not only humorous, but also revealed interesting insights into their 13-year long courtship and life.
Indeed, as Su-Anne said, “They have the 3 most important things in life – family, friends and love”, it was evident that the couple is very much well-loved by their family members and friends as they not just listened, by participated in their speeches, as they cheered, interjected and shouted words of love and encouragement.
Su-Anne had to dunk down two glasses of champagne during her thank-you speech, prompting the emcee, Kay, one of my favourite deejays at FM 88.3 to quip, “That’s the Su-Anne we know. Any excuse to drink!”
Kaay Juan is dialect-illiterate but he wanted to address Su-Anne’s grandma so he had practised this phrase in Hokkein the entire day – “I will take good care of Su-Anne forever”. Though it may not be pitch-accurate, the love and commitment in his declaration was unmistakable and I could see Su-Anne’s grandmother beaming from ear to ear.
Hi Kaay Juan and Su-Anne, may your lives continue to be filled with love, happiness and joy. Congratulations!
P.S. It was great to meet Vinny again, whom I’ve performed for in July 2008.. Thanks, Vinny for passing on our contacts!
