Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 给我 (Give Me) Shangri-La!
I am officially in love with Shangri-La Hotel. The acoustics are excellent, the staff are conscientious to a fault, and the banquet hall is magnificent. (Note: When describing Shangri-La Hotel, you have to use multi-syllabic words; “big”, “good” and “great” just won’t do.)
Our voices were crystal clear, thanks to the sound system and acoustics. Even a whisper could reach the back of the hall without problems, so we had to careful not to belt.
The crowd was very appreciative, and clapped enthusiastically after every song. We could even see heads bobbing along to the chorus of 给我一个吻 (Give Me Just One Kiss), which I hope will become another staple in our wedding repertoire. It’s such a fun song to sing; Eleanor sounded coy yet playful at the same time.
The icing on the cake? Words from Ben, the groom, “Thanks for your performance! I thought I was listening to a CD!”
I can’t wait to sing at Shangri-La again!
