Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: So Close
For a blow-by-blow account of what an amazing wedding Chi Wern and Chin Ling had. Here’s a short summary…
On 5 Jan this year, Chin Ling wrote a blog entry,
“I was also very sure that if Bev were to sing for my wedding, it would be such a beautiful thing. When I read her thoughts on their blog, I feel like I can connect with her… Chi Wern and I did our sums over the past 2 days.. and we figured that we can’t confirm A Little Dream to be the wedding band. I’ve been following their blog since I was dating… way before I was even proposed to. You will understand why when you read their blog..its so personal that you just feel like you want to be part of that blog family! Again, like what I messaged Hsin Yeow in the evening… it would be such a dream come true to have A Little Dream sing at our wedding.. 🙂 Meanwhile, it still remains a dream.”
This was Chi Wern’s SMS to me on the same day (yes, I kept the SMS for 11 months!):
“Hi Hsin Yeow, Chi Wern here. I am Chin Ling’s bf. I believe she told you we won’t be engaging your services. Can I book you guys? It’s a surprise for her. Will confirm with you the details later. With her now.”
Thanks to Chi Wern, who counts as one of the most romantic men I have ever met, Chin Ling’s dream came true. There were many more surprises that evening, including one of my own.
Singing So Close was my gift to Chin Ling, as I wanted to recreate that romantic scene in the movie (Enchanted) when the heroine was dancing in the ballroom with her true love.
To Chin Ling: words can’t express how moved Bevlyn and I are by the love you share with Chi Wern. You have always been a part of our “blog family”, and you always will be. Thank you so much for your support, and may you and Chi Wern lead a blessed and blissful life together!

Compliments from Chin Ling:
Hsin Yeow made us do a dance. Well, one thing he didn’t know was that I had 2 left feet…but, I enjoyed the short moment I had with hubby to laugh, dance and be close. Hsin Yeow explained to the audience that we got engaged at the movies where Enchanted was played..And he gave me the oppportunity to feel like a real princess, dancing in the ballroom, and so we danced to the song in the movie – So Close. Thanks for sharing our stories and personalities with the audience, it gave such a personal touch and we later received raved reviews about our wedding and the personal touches! It’s a pity we did not get to hear the entire set of songs that was presented.. I head amazing amazing comments about the band!
Compliments from Chi Wern:
Hi Hsin Yeow,
What more can I say… Thank you so much for making the wedding so memorable and wonderful!
