#1 – The caricature that touched hearts – Jesseca Liu and Olivia Ong
Mdm Yeow Ah Mo was clearly impressed by a caricature of her, done by Malaysian artiste Jesseca Liu.
Singing and drawing have no relation to each other, but on Sunday night, these two talents were put together for a pleasant surprise, when former MediaCorp actress Jesseca Liu and local songstress Olivia Ong took to the stage with Mdm Yeow Ah Mo.
The 77-year-old lady, who has no kith or kin, was rooted to a chair for 5 minutes, as Liu hurriedly scrambled to piece a caricature of the lady, who spoke mainly Cantonese. At the same time, the 25-year-old Ong belted a medley of evergreen hits by the late Teresa Teng, accompanied by a band. The final product? A finely-drawn piece of art by the Langkawi-born Liu, bringing Mdm Yeow to tears.
Even the simplest of acts can move the deepest of emotions.
