Adeline’s thoughts: 就是爱你 (Just Love You)
What makes a wedding special and memorable is when a couple adds a personal touch to it. For Chay Pin and Lulu, they decided to sing for their 2nd march-in (今天你要嫁给我 – Marry Me Today).
And I must say they did a really good job. With smiles from cheek to cheek, holding each other’s hand, looking into their partner’s eyes and singing the song as they walked down the aisle, it was a love declaration with an element of fun. (By the way, Chay Pin was sporting enough to persevere and learn the harmony for the chorus bit too. His efforts definitely paid off.) Wait… there’s more.
Chay Pin was going to play the guitar and sing 就是爱你 (Just Love You) to his bride, as she stood next to him. It was a beautiful moment. And of course, all the hours of practicing for the song paid off for Chay Pin. Thumbs Up.
We really enjoyed playing for the couple and their guests. They were most responsive to the songs we played whether instrumental or with vocals. When Imelda sang 给我一个吻 (Give Me A Kiss), there were many flying kisses then went up in the air from the audience. She definitely built up an “Uncle & Auntie” fan-base there with that song and with other Teresa Teng hot favourites like 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet).
Our heartfelt congratulations to Chay Pin and Lulu. Thank you for engaging us at your wedding. We hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves as much as we have playing for you.
Hsin Yeow’s additional thoughts: The Look Of Love
How would you feel if you’ve just met the girl of your dreams? Well, Chay Pin puts it quite nicely:
“We met amongst friends. She was wearing a slim white dress and was full of smiles. I thought she was beautiful, smart, eloquent and elegant. I decided to get to know her better.
We dated for a while. One night, after a nice wine tasting event, as we talked over dinner, a sudden spark ignited between us. We got together soon after.
Lulu is the girl of my dreams. She shares my values for family and relationship. To me she is the most beautiful woman in the world. I knew that she is the one. I told myself I will love and protect this girl forever.
On 8/8/2009, after coming back from a business trip in Malaysia, I asked Lulu out. I brought her to the rooftop of a nice hotel by the pool. Under the full moon, I asked Lulu to marry me. She said “yes”. My heart blossomed. That was the happiest thing I heard last year.”

Dear Hsin Yeow,
Thanks so much! We just got back from our honeymoon and we’re still thinking of our beautiful wedding.
The band was absolutely great! The songs were fantastic. Imelda was gorgeous and sang so beautifully. With Imelda as emcee I didn’t have to worry about the programme at all!
Adeline was also great! She played along with me very nicely while I sang with my guitar!
