Serene’s thoughts: Grow Old With You

After the 2nd march-in, Barry was asked to complete five sentences (in the dialect Hokkien) starting with “I love you because _______ “.

Barry’s answers were:
1. “I love you because you are very pretty.”
2. “I love you because you are very good.”
3. “I love you because you are very adorable.”

He ran out of words, and the emcee asked him to complete the last two sentences by sharing with everyone present what he would do for his wife.

Barry answered:
4. “I will take care of you for the rest of your life.”
5. “My money is my money, your money is my money.” (which only drew applause from the men in the house and was later told this sentence did not pass the test).

He finally said:
“My money is my money, your money is your money, our money is our money…”

Little did he know his bride had planned a surprise for him. When he was asked to proceed (together with Jeslyn) to the piano, he was really nervous. Nor did it help that the emcees told him all he needed to do is to “look cool.”

The pretty Jeslyn then played “Grow Old With You” on the piano for Barry. How sweet is it that this bride took a 2-hour crash course specially with Adeline, our pianist for the evening just to plan this surprise for her husband.

Through Jeslyn, we learnt that “Grow Old With You” is the song that Barry dedicated to Jeslyn on their first date.

Lovely huh? How romantic. All I can say is Jeslyn is a lucky girl, and Barry, a lucky man too.

Congratulations to you both, thank you for engaging A Little Dream on your special day. We would also like to say a huge thank you to the guests who were such a wonderful audience this evening.
