i hope u like it... ♬

i jus came back from gary's memorial was slightly different compared to his wake service..its more joyful (but i stil cant hold back my tears..huhu)..weeks ago..i told myself..i wud love to dedicate the song 'the prayer' to was like our song..even during his 21st bday..there were people asking it to b sung..but was different..i cud not sing with him by my side..

alex the MC and also the one who sung the song with me today made a great introduction..

"in 2006, techflow produced a christmas musical entitled 1941, a is a story of a small malaysian village torn apart by the japanese the midst of all this..the worlds of sue ling, a young local girl, and shinoda, a sympathetic japanese general, meet and collide, changing their lives forever..during the play, shinoda and sue ling prayed for each other, culminating in a song 'the prayer'..val played the part of sue ling while gary played the part of shinoda..on the opening nite of the musical, gary gave the performance of a lifetime with the beautiful rendition of 'the prayer'..tonight..3 years later..val and i wishes to present this song as a tribute to gary.."

even this intro brought tears..wat more the slideshow of pictures during the i sang the song..memories singing it with gary flashed tru my mind..i remembered his indian slang..i remembered how he was determined to hit the high note correctly..i remembered how he laughed at his own voice..i remembered how he helped me with my singing and acting..i jus miss his company so much..

shinoda and sue ling

besides this song..we also sang him a song we sang for him during his 21st bday..its an improvised version of the f.r.i.e.n.d.s is the lyrics of our version of f.r.i.e.n.d.s for gary...
