Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: One Boy One Girl
Simon’s a really friendly guy. When I asked him to describe his relationship with Daphne, he gave me quite a comprehensive introduction.
“Daphne and me met in 1997 when we were studying in Nanyang Junior College. We started out as friends, and dated only a year later.
During our free time, we like to engage in both outdoor and indoor activities. As we like the adrenaline rush of active sports, one of our favourite sports is Squash. I also like the Sun, the Sand and the Sea, so we prefer to travel to resorts rather than cities for overseas holidays.
When we’re at home, we like to read. There are stacks of reading material piled up at home, including fiction, non-fiction, magazines etc. We also listen to music, watch TV/movies/plays, etc
Daphne was the one who introduced me to theatre, and I fell in love with it ever since. Our favourites are the Broadway Beng Series by local comedian Sebastian Tan, and The Phantom of the Opera.
Both of us wish for simple things in life like being able to sit down to have dinner with our parents. We place importance in spending ample time together as a couple, in open communication and trust. We wish for a blissful and smooth sailing marriage.”
Daphne chose to express her love for Simon by arranging a surprise. Knowing how much he loved an original composition by Bevlyn, she got Bevlyn to sing it during the dinner. The song was A Love Song (To Show You How I Feel), and it felt as if Daphne’s feeling were encapsulated in the last stanza of the song:
To show you how I feel
Let you know I am ready
For life’s journey with you
Congratulations Daphne and Simon! May your years together be filled with happiness and joy!

Simon wanted the band to perform One Boy One Girl live while the photo montage was being played. The montage was timed to fit the exact length of the song, so Ein Ein and I had to follow as closely as we could to the original arrangement and timing. Luckily, it went smoothly, and we finished the song just in time!

Compliments from Simon & Daphne:
A lot of our guests sang praises of your team’s performance at our AD dinner. I myself regret for my being able to enjoy your entire singing.
Would like to wish you guys a Happy New Year, a better year ahead, with more business and personal opportunities in the entertainment industry.
Simon and Daphne
