Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: You Mean The World To Me

You never know what you might gain from a road trip with friends.

For Johann, it was the opportunity to be in close contact with the lovely Calista, who stole Johann’s heart. Hartono, Johann’s childhood friend who introduced Calista to Johann, was understandably ectastic. He had so much to say he didn’t need a script at all, as words came spilling out of him.

“I’m not surprised that Johann fell for Calista. I mean, just look at her. Isn’t she beautiful?” Hartono asked. A rhetoric question, of course, for Calista looked amazing that afternoon.

Hartono’s speech was one of many. Another confident speaker was Mr Christer Ekberg, Calista’s boss. He went onstage with one single purpose: to wax lyrical about Calista as a driven and capable person. I could tell Mr Ekberg treated Calista almost like his daughter.

As a ‘reward’ for staying until the end of the lunch, Johann and Calista prepared some surprises for the guests. They arranged for plastic rings to be hidden in the dessert, and the guests who found them received dining vouchers from St Regis.

Bevlyn, James, Fabian and I had a great time performing at the wedding. My favourite moment was when I sang “Give Me Forever (I Do)” for the couple’s first dance. Watching Johann and Calista dance to live music made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Congratulations Calista and Johann!

P.S. Many thanks to Kim of Wedding Concierge for recommending us!

Dear A Little Dream,

Many thanks for Hsin Yeow, who’s been very warm and helpful on our big day.

Not only that he did his best to get to know us in such a short period of time, he is also a great singer. It’s been a blast knowing you, coming up with the song list and spending our important day together.

Cheers,
Johann & Calista
