Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: On This Day

It’s a tremendous responsibility to be both emcee and performer at weddings, but I do enjoy the challenge of making each performance meaningful and memorable for the couple and their guests. It always helps if I have the couple’s trust. Anthea and Alvin trusted me implicitly, to the extent that I got Alvin to deliver an impromptu thank-you speech!

The couple hadn’t planned to give one, so I decided to guide Alvin by highlighting the three essential parts of a wedding thank-you speech:

– give thanks to the guests for gracing the celebration
– give thanks to his family members and in-laws
– give thanks to Anthea for agreeing to marry him

Alvin followed my instructions to the letter, and even ended his “speech” by giving Anthea a sweet kiss!

Congratulations Alvin and Anthea!

P.S. The sound system at Marriott was excellent, as always. It was a pleasure performing there!

Song To Recommend:

On This Day by David Pomeranz

This song is tailor made for weddings. Extract of lyrics below.

Here we stand today
Like we’ve always dreamed
Starting out our lives together
Night is in your eyes
Love is in our hearts
I can’t believe you really mine forever
I’ve been rehearsing for this moment in all my life
So don’t act surprised
If the feelings start to carry me away

On this day
I promise forever
On this day
I surrender my heart
Here I stand take my hand
And I will honour every word that I say
On this day

男佣 (Man Servant) by Kenji Wu

– A tongue-in-cheek song about being a personal valet to his girlfriend.
