S.H.E. member Ella Chen will be tying the knot with her Malaysian fiancé Alvin Lai on May 5.
Two days ago, the pair made a secret trip to the Island of Guam for their wedding photo shoot and Ella’s good friend and fellow band mate Hebe Tien was also on the trip to witness the happy occasion.
Throughout the trip, Hebe tagged along and played gooseberry to the soon-to-be newly-weds. The humourous singer smiled in reply to the media’s nickname of her playing ‘third wheel’ to the couple, “We’re not that bright, as compared to the overwhelming sense of happiness emitted by Ella and Alvin.”
Thirty people are believed to have gone on the wedding photoshoot trip, which was sponsored by various people. A client sponsored NT$3.5 million (S$160,000) on food and lodging and Ella’s record label HIM International sponsored NT$100,000 (S$4,500) on makeup. The hotel, which the group stayed at, also leased their presidential suite for Ella and Alvin at a low price of NT$150,000 (S$6,800) per night.
On the day of their departure, Ella and Hebe, who boarded the Hello Kitty private jet for the first time, were excited to see all the adorable accessories.
“This is our first time going to Guam and taking a Hello Kitty plane. It felt like we’ve become cute as well since everything from food to utilities consists of these irresistible Hello Kitty products. It’s so romantic,” the pair gushed.
When the air stewardess gave Ella with a pink Hello Kitty apron, used by the flight’s stewardesses, the singer immediately put it on and joked, “Wearing it this way (over her clothes) is not sexy at all because the apron hides everything. Maybe I can wear nothing but this (the apron) privately?”
Due to her packed schedule for the next half of the year, Ella decided to treat this trip as her early honeymoon.
“Every day is like going on a honeymoon, as long as two people are happily in love,” the singer said sweetly.
