Since our theme for our Pearl Wedding was 1930s, we wanted to use an old song for our dance. When I went through Michael Buble’s spotify playlist, I fell in love with the beat of You Make Me Feel So Young. Then when I researched on the initial release of the song, I found out it was after 1930s. My second choice was I Only Have Eyes for You, which was released in 1934. However, both my dance partner (Marvin) and choreographer (Anton) voted to still use the former song so that’s what we used.
I’m a big fan of tap dancing and if I had only prepared earlier for this, I would have tried harder to channel our inner Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers for this, hahaha!
It’s a good thing that with the help of my favorite choreographer, there was a short segment of tap in it. Thank you VJ Anton! J He has choreographed not just hiphop dances but also a good number of first dances for couples performed on their wedding day, some of them he also hosted.

2. Mom and Son Podcast MOM AND SON PODCAST – SEASON 3 EPISODE 8 (NO TV ON WEEKDAYS? BAYWINDOW PERFORMANCES?)
From the bunso:
My brothers and I grew up not watching TV or playing video games on weekdays. How did this rule and the structure of these rules affect us growing up? We discuss and actually discover how little tweaks and edits to house rules can have huge effects that help shape the character of kids growing up. We have mentioned the baywindow performances many times in our past episodes, as well as the FQ Mom’s articles. We dive deeper into this “ritual” of performing before bedtime. Join us and stream now!
