Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 天天想你 (Thinking Of You Every Day)

Ben didn’t have an easy time winning Linda’s heart.

Being Linda’s personal chauffeur didn’t work. Apparently Ben bought his first car to pick Linda up from school and send her to work on time. It took Ben at least three tries before Linda agreed to be his girlfriend. God knows how many times Ben proposed, but suffice it to say, he didn’t succeed the first time.

Nevertheless, Ben persisted because he knew Linda was The One for him. Linda had given him emotional support during a time when Ben’s career stalled. Instead of giving up on Ben, Linda’s belief in him was immensely comforting. So Ben threw caution to the wind and blew half his savings on a large rock. This time, he succeeded.

After learning about how they got together, I dedicated 天天想你 (Thinking Of You Every Day) to Ben, as I felt that the lyrics could have mirrored his feelings during those times when his love was unrequited. Ben clearly knew the song, because he guffawed and clapped just before I sang it.

Congratulations Linda and Ben! Thank you for reading this blog and being so supportive of us. It was a pleasure to perform for you and your guests!

P.S. Many thanks to Gordon of Wedding Matters for recommending us!
