Customised Birthday Surprise at Corner House


What is more memorable than having a birthday celebration? Having a surprise one planned for you by a loved one, and that was exactly what happened to Mr Chen on his 40th birthday.

The philanthropist and founder of Wifi Master Key (a free internet service),  had initially thought he was just having a simple lunch with his wife on his birthday, but little did he know that his wife had planned a birthday surprise for him with his most cherished friends, some of whom he has not met in years.

The surprise was held at Corner House, situated in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Our vocalist and guitarist, Jee Yon, performed the music-based portion of the heartwarming surprise with a repertoire of Cantonese and Mandopop favorites timed to the arrival of each surprise guest. The intimate setting of the restaurant created an ambience that was most apt for the occasion – a catch up between old friends over a hearty meal accompanied by a custom repertoire handpicked by Mr Chen’s wife to bring about a nostalgic memory tagged to each surprise guest.


We couldn’t help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside as we captured the little moments of reminiscence between guests and the man of the hour, and we were reminded of the depth of emotions music is capable of bringing to a special event. Vocalise is glad that we were able to provide music that brought our clients through a walk down memory lane, as well as to be there to witness an afternoon of lively chatter and conversations between old friends.

Here’s a recap of our surprise event at Corner House:


We at Vocalise believe in creating a kaleidoscopic trove of everlasting memories. We understand that cookie-cutter style packages – while convenient – may not be everyone’s cup of tea. If you seek a little more finesse or pizzazz for your event’s entertainment, Vocalise is here to help you realise that. If a particular artiste or instrumental set-up has caught your eye and you wish to discuss further with regard to any specifications, or you’re feeling overwhelmed by thoughts and ideas on what sort of live entertainment would be most ideal, feel free to chat with us! We’d love to hear from you, and we’d be more than happy to mix things up for your event.
