Ian’s Thoughts: A Date with Daniel & Rain
“When love is put to the test, those who persist will find a way out.” Daniel and Rain is one such couple.
The couple knew each other since their poly days but love only blossomed several years after. Like most couples, bickering is part and parcel of growing together; but when stress came into the picture as well, they found themselves trying to keep afloat. According to Rain, Daniel was the man who never gave up on her and taught her how loving someone really is. It was through Daniel’s persistence, patience and encouragement that eventually touched her, especially during times when she needed support the most.
21st September 2009 was not only Daniel and Rain’s wedding day; it also marked their one year anniversary since their ROM!
Despite it being a rather sizeable gathering of friends and relatives, the setting was intimate.There was a buzz in the air and a warmth in everyone’s hearts that spread especially to the freezing musicians (Mandarin Oriental’s air-con was very powerful indeed), who delivered two sets of enlivening music to an audience who responded positively, most notably to Bevlyn’s original tunes*! (Go local music!) Also very heart-warming was the special dedication of two ballads to the couple’s parents, 家后 and 真的爱你.
