Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 出嫁 (Getting Married)
Esther and Teck Kiang looking radiantly in love!
Thanks to Live Studios for taking the photos you see in this blog entry!
This is what the wedding meant to Teck Kiang, the romantic groom:
The most meaningful thing is to allow me a chance to announce to the world that I have married a wonderful, caring, loving and gracious wife, Esther, and express my heartiest affection and gratitude towards her….. I promise to love her and take good care of her till the very last day of my life…..
Certainly, Teck Kiang is not the kind of man to be reserved about his feelings. In fact, he remembers significant dates and highlights of the courtship, and describes them as “fabulous” and “fairy-tale like”. From elaborate surprises such as dining in a cable car to visiting the Chinese Garden during the Lantern festival, those were the “happiest moments of my life!”
Performing at Esther and Teck Kiang’s wedding celebration was a real joy for me. The guests were very appreciative of our music and clapped enthusiastically at many points of the evening. Esther and Teck Kiang were also keen to create their own special moments through live music, notably, singing their way into the ballroom for their second march-in. They chose a Mandarin pop duet called 出嫁 (Getting Married), and their performance drew loud cheers from the audience!
Another highlight of the evening was Teck Kiang’s performance of 小薇 (Xiao Wei). He changed the title to Esther’s Chinese name, and sang the song with panache. Naturally, he was asked to do an encore, and he graciously obliged, with an impromptu rendition of Fly Me To The Moon. Esther was simply blushing with happiness at her husband’s spontaneous display of affection.
Congratulations Esther and Teck Kiang!
P.S. It was great seeing Ashley, Dennis and Corrine again!

Compliments from Esther:
Dear Hsin Yeow, Bevlyn, Linus and Sebastian,
You guys really did a wonderful job! *4 thumbs up*
It was a pity though that we did not have the chance to sit down and really enjoy the music like the rest, nor a pic with you guys… =(
However, our guests were extremely impressed with your performance, and that includes our old uncles and aunties! Our 80-year-old grandma even commented, “这首歌我听过。他们唱的很好！”…
You guys made the evening so relax & cozy that many actually sing-along…
Special thanks to Hsian Yeow for the excellent coordination and all the good effort and hard work. You are really the only team that we do not have to worry, to ensure that everything is well-prepared before the event. Also Linus for taking time off his busy schedule for doing the rehearsal.
Once again, thanks for making our wedding celebration a memorable and successful one. You guys are really a brilliant team…! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK…!
TK and Esther
