Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Better Today

Aileen was a stunning bride. Her porcelain features reminded me of Zhang Ziyi.

And because she’s Korean, Bevlyn and I agreed to learn a few Korean numbers. Bevlyn sang The Wonder Girls’ ubiquitous hit “Nobody”, while I tackled a beautiful ballad called “May I Love You”. Whew, it was tough to sing in Korean, but we made it through!

That night, we also sang in French, Hokkien, Cantonese, Mandarin and, of course, English. The ‘rojak’ mix appealed to the diverse crowd, which comprised guests from Australia, Malaysia, China and Indonesia.

Congratulations, Martin and Aileen! Thank you for challenging us by introducing new songs to us. Special thanks to Ivy, who made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. Wish you both a happy and fulfilling marriage!

Song To Recommend:

May I Love You? – A beautiful ballad.

Better Today – This song has great lyrics..

“And I wanna hear your voice, in the morning when I rise
I think I know I’m just a normal man, only made of sand except when you’re by my side
Will you love me, teach me, don’t leave me I pray
And when I, and I’m thinking of the times
Your hands in mine, together we will stay
You made me better today
Better than I was before
And now my heart can rest and I will search no more
You made me better today, today, today”
