Best Man - Tan Boon Teck
A humorous and witty guy who was my (Joel's) classmate in
the class of 21/93 in Anderson JC. He still lives in self-denial
of his existence in AJC, but that's another story.
My regular arcade game partner in our college days (we can
finish the game with 1 token!), the craze for computer games
brought us together again in the 1997 batch of NTU Computer
Engineering. The uni days of fun, chilling out with our
other crazy friends, supper and soccer (dun be deceived
by his size ok!) will always be remembered. Thanks for pushing
me to study (till Lydia took over your duty, that is)!
He's still single and available by the way. Ask him what's
Goal 2010 if you've got the chance.
of Honour - Janice Fong
we (Lydia & Janice) often see each other in church,
we never really hit it off until one fine day we just
clicked at a wedding dinner! She has since been my close
friend where we share everything from shopping, latest
news (gossips? :)) and fashion. She once went to 5 different
Coach shops in the US just to help me get the bag I wanted!
She's our church friend from Revival Centre Church. Come
by one Sunday to hear her on the keyboard!
- Gabriel Ng, Ho Tzin Mein & Lim Kian Pang
Ah.. my NTU Computer Engineering friends..
(Update: Eric has pulled out and Kian Pang is the new guy!)
Gabriel is a real funky and crazy guy and he was also in
the same squad as me during our NS 6 months BMT in the Police.
He is also into Latin-dance, DJ, and an avid fan of bossa nova
and progressive house music!
Tzin Mein is a real cool guy and is always checking out
the gals in NTU. In the midst of exam fever, he once passed
notes to a gal he fancies in the library! He is especially
into rock music!
Without these two, my life in NTU would have been different
(for better or worse? Haha!)! Thanks for the fun times and
your support, especially during exams where we'd be studying
together in the library. About the only rare times we visit
New entry: Kian Pang (aka Golliwog) was introduced by Stonz
(real name: Boon Teck) in Quake2. There we build our friendship
without actually meeting in person for ages! Always with
a smile, you can count on him for JB trips and movies. Unless
they clash with his pilates! A movie fanatic, he's into
- Anna Tan, Chin Hwee Ming & Adeline Soh
dear girlfriends from NTU Accountancy...
I got to know Anna when we were in the same Computer project
group in the first year. She's a really nice and easy-going
gal, and always cheerful and laughing. She's single too,
so do get to know her! Ask her about the "wet"
21st birthday present that we gave her in the hostel.
Hwee Ming was my project mate and we decided to be roommates
in our final semester in NTU. That began a really fun
time in Hall, with Anna as our next door neighbour! She
is quite a sporty gal and loves diving too! Stingrays
and sharks (fins) still end up in her stomach though.
Adeline may be a little quiet, but we just clicked in
Linear Algebra in year two and became really close! Every
semester after that, we'll always try to register in the
same tutorial classes. Registration time can be really
stressful! We'd be really nervous and "fight"
with others to get into the same class! She's a really
sweet and nice gal, but unfortunately she's taken already!
gals really brighten up my uni days in the hostel &
school. Thanks for the memories and friendship that we
shared together in NTU.
- Reverend Tony Tan
church pastor Reverend Tony Tan (no, not the MP Tony Tan)
never fails to keep me sustained and awake during his Sunday
sermons. It's true, cos I'm really good at "hibernating"!
A lawyer before he left the worldly riches to follow God's
calling, he is indeed very eloquent with words and speeches.
Be captivated by his sermons, often sprinkled with interesting
true stories and spontaneous hymn singing.
hear him speak on Sundays at our beloved Revival Centre
It's a blessing to have him as our pastor and to have him
officiate our solemnization cermony. God bless him and his
Leader - Uncle Alan Koh
our church worship leader, Uncle Alan stirs our hearts
with his smooth and melodious voice.
Though married with 2 sons, he is still very youthful
in heart. He once dislocated his shoulder while dancing
at our church 40th anniversary!
If you want to know how Joel look like when he was young,
take a look at his son Peter, who bears a close resemblance!
So come to RCC one Sunday to hear him sing (or to check
out his son)!
- Stevan & Hans
Stevan is the eldest son of Lydia's eldest sister Sonny.
He's quite a smart boy. Dinosaurs & science are his
Hans is the younger brother of Stevan. He is totally adorable
and at the same time quite a terror too! Playing is what
he does best! When Joel is in Padang, the two of them always
play Metal Slug 3 (PS2) together while Hans' siblings are
- Josephine, Carmen & Vannis
is the elder sister of Hans. She likes Barbie and all things
sweet! 13 Barbie dolls and counting...
Carmen is the daughter of Lydia's 2nd sister Phebe. Barney
used to be her favorite till she got to know Barbie from
Vannis is Joel's niece (daughter of Cheung & Veron).
She's very cute and can be quite shy initially. But once
she warms up to you, she is really fun to play with!
Coordinator - Elin Tan
our friend and colleague in Tetra Pak. I can't remember
how I got to know her, but it must be from chatting her
up at the Reception. :P
A real sporty and friendly gal, she's got an amazing load
of yummy goodies stuffed in her office drawers! It's like
going to the $1.99 shop for candies!
And what luck! We're going to be neighbours when The [email protected]
is completed in 2010. With her craze for powerhouse home
theatre system, I'll be looking forward to this future neighbour!
MC - Christina Tan
a real ditzy and fun-loving gal that I got to know in AJC.
How we got to know each other is quite a funny story, but
those were the fun days with our other JC friends, Victor
Of all occupations, she became a teacher! But I figured
if she can handle the kids, being an MC for my wedding must
be a walk in the park. Thank you so much for agreeing!
MC - Jason Teo (my brother!)
else can I say about him?
Thanks for all the fond childhood memories of fighting with
each other, wearing identical clothings, and so-claimed
whacking him with a feather-duster (which I seriously don't
We've shared the same bedroom since young, shared toys,
played computer games together, and gone to the same school
right up to JC! Life would have been lonely (and more peaceful!)
Swingin' bachelor no more he will be next year. So all you
single gals out there, please check out my swingin' Best
Man instead. :)
- Victor Ng
childhood friend from church, the first time we met was
at our parents' bible study meeting. We will then eagerly
look forward to these weekly meetings.. so that we can
play Risk, Monopoly, Game Of Life and badminton! The silly
"badminton" incident still makes me laugh. :)
From the fun childhood days of catching fish in the drain
outside our church (when we should be in Sunday School
actually!), the Sunday lunch-chats during my NS days,
to talking about soccer these days, he is a good friend
Chicken rice "kei peng" is his trade-mark, and
oh! He's a teacher too!
- Victor Ong
the Toa Payoh MRT platform I chanced upon him on my way
to AJC every morning. This privileged guy was in the Arts
class where the female to male ratio was like 10:1! What
was I doing in the Science class??
Tall and lanky, he has put on some real mass and muscles
now and is quite an artistic and creative guy. You can always
count on his hearty laughter.
- Jared Fong & Joyce Teo
What's the number one sign that you've been watching too
much EPL matches? When you start to pronounce "Jared"
as "Gerrard" (Liverpool's Steven Gerrard)!
A tall and unassuming guy, Jared plays the guitar for our
church worship service. He is the brother of Janice! Both
of them are muscially talented.
Joyce plays the keyboard for our church worship service.
She is another teacher in our circle. Too bad she is attached
already, so you guys have to look somewhere else!
- Robin Wong & Sin Yee
Robin's a real nice guy. Perhaps due to his occupation as
an army officer, he is still single! If you get to know him
better, he can be quite a joker too. We grew up together in
church and he's the same age as my brother.
Sin Yee... she's hyper sporty and has performed many times
in dance theatres. She is also her own boss and makes cakes
for a living. Her carrot cake is simply excellent! Yummy!
