Hahaa.. Before you mistake my title and think that I and Calvin have tied the knot over the weekend, I’m just sharing the sentiments from what I witnessed at my cousin, Shawn’s Marriage Solemnization ceremony yesterday. Well, his solemnization was a simple blast! It took place at Furama Riverfront Hotel which is at the cozy spot along Havelock Road. Frankly I feel that it’s a rather pleasant place to have a small and peaceful ceremony coupled with the gorgeous waterfall that the lounge actually overlooks.
Here are some photos of the hotel from Metro Travel Guide which are true to reality.
I think that the place had the perfect ambience and a touch of class. Not to mention the staff is really friendly! From the doorman to the waitress..!
The ceremony was really kept small and only immediate family members and close friends were invited. It’s a really good time for us to gather together and catch up and reminisce the times when we were younger as children. Sometimes, it’s really hard to imagine how we have grown over the years.
Some of our family members and the Groom! 😀 I’m Hidden!!
Some of our family members and the Groom again! 😀 Now, I’m Not Hidden!!
The Roses – My darling cousins.. Joelynn’s missing because she was admitted into hospital with an ear infection.. A lot others are missing cos they couldn’t make it.. so sad..
The thorn among the roses.. haha.. my cousin Kevin and us again!
To end this blog post off, the song below was one of the songs being played at the reception and I really loved this song. I’ve heard this song before and in fact, I watched the movie which this song was the OST for. But I never really felt this song had any significance to me. Now, this song is even more meaningful to me now that I’ve found my special someone… 🙂
So, I dedicate this song to you, my dearest Calvin:
I FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE (Barbra Streisand & Bryan Adams)
I finally found someone, that knocks me off my feet
I finally found the one, that makes me feel complete
We started over coffee, we started out as friends
It’s funny how from simple things, the best things begin
This time it’s different, dah dah dah dah
It’s all because of you, dah dah dah dah
It’s better than it’s ever been
‘Cause we can talk it through
Oohh, my favorite line was “Can I call you sometime?”
It’s all you had to say to take my breath away
(Chorus) This is it, oh, I finally found someone
Someone to share my life
I finally found the one, to be with every night
‘Cause whatever I do, it’s just got to be you
My life has just begun
I finally found someone,ooh, someone
I finally found someone, oooh
Did I keep you waiting, I didn’t mind
I apologize, baby, that’s fine
I would wait forever just to know you were mine
And I love your hair, sure it looks fine
I love what you wear, isn’t it the time?
You’re exceptional, I can’t wait for the rest of my life
Whatever I do, it’s just got to be you
My life has just begun I finally found someone
