Thank You List

It feels like our wedding, and we’re finalizing the guest list. It’s nerve wrecking and gratifying all at the same time because the last thing we want to do is leave out any of you who have helped piece our dream together. The foundation of our dream, this album, was built upon the solid rock of goodwill from so many honest people, musicians, businessman, friends, family and supporters. All of you have given so generously to us your time, money, effort and confidence. 成功与否,我们想用这张专辑来证明好人真的存在!

Alvin, Jenny and Li Juan of iKnow/Aiptek for putting more than just money, but your patience, and your FAITH in us. For not just being clients, but people who believed in our personalities and actually spent time listening to us go on about our aspirations and wacky ideas. Victoria (老香港茶餐厅) and Liping (Ren Ren Travel), for being so willing to help out, without questions, without asking for returns, we never imagined we would be able to find such selfless people in this realistic world. Kevin and Elena of Asia Pacific Breweries (APB) for the chance to have our very own music video!

Keith of Global Music, who first put a roof over our heads and being so wonderful. Richard for always fussing over our every whim and fancy and Amy for her love and wicked sense of humour. Jeff, our 师兄 for being the best 师兄 we could ask for, watching us grow on this journey and never forgetting to show your concern.

Thank you Mr Ngiam for your guidance and help! Ai Ling and Ai Lian for starting work so abruptly and so efficiently!

Keith, JR and Olly of Hide&Seek, for being such real and amazing people in this cruel industry. You guys are real gems. We’re so happy to have FOUND you. Gabriel of Puma, always so busy, always jet-setting but always so ready to let us in to raid your stock for delicious Puma shoes!

Could we ever forget the people we are most attached to, in every way possible? Our families have extended through to each other’s family over these 4 years.

Last but most importantly: Our Father in Heaven, for being the anchor of our lives. For being the pivot of our partnership, the truth and the guiding light to our path.

You are the CEO of this album and our lives. “Your glory goes beyond all fame.” Amen.
