All that Glistens this Christmas Season

4 years ago

    Just when you thought my period of giving thanks is over, I keep on finding lists of things to give thanks for. As they say, "It ain't over till the fat lady sings." And I've yet to hear crystal-shattering tones. There's something about the festive season that render me reflective, which is something I love and appreciate, because there are countless things to[...]

Giving Thanks

4 years ago

So, it's Thanksgiving, huh?   Apart from all the stories I hear about turkey dinners, weeks of leftovers, and crazy black Friday sales, I have to admit I know nothing about this American holiday. That is, until I met Melissa, who is a part of our Basically team and she has lovingly inducted us into the traditions of Thanksgiving. Yes, along with all the food,[...]

Char+Chris :: A King’s Park and Perth City Engagement

4 years ago

Seeing that I lived in Perth for a good three years of my life and get occasionally nostalgic for the life down under, I was excited to be back for a stint and attending the wedding of one of my best buds, Chris and his fiance Char. I was even more excited to be able to shoot a quick pre-wedding the week before the big[...]

YJ+Rach :: Madmen, A Playground, and Love all Around

5 years ago

Yujin and Rachael were the type of couple who are both equally invested in their wedding, and dearly wanted to include their whole bridal party of groom's men and bridesmaids in all the fun. Therefore they thought that one way of doing it was to bring everyone together for a few photos that they can keep on their mantle in their living room for the[...]

Shaun + Wenai :: The Couch Potatoes Get Married

5 years ago

Wow! It has certainly been awhile. But I reappear with an image heavy post on the wedding of Shaun and Wenai. You might probably remember them from their engagement I shot earlier in the year, the one where we lugged a couch to various locations.   True to their personalities, their wedding had touches of all things to do with the movies. From their wedding[...]

Sneaking past the new year

5 years ago

The last you heard of me, it was Christmas. Now we've sailed past the new year, found ourselves midway through January and I've been enjoying my little time off, maybe a little bit too much seeing that I've been reluctant to get back on the horse and into a fierce gallop.   I had a pretty good breather in Bali last week, hence the silence.[...]

A mela.de.gypsie Christmas

5 years ago

And just like that, Christmas 2012 is Christmas Past. But why should we even stop the celebrating? It still feels like Christmas stretches on to even until the New Year comes. I guess when Christmas leftovers start becoming last year's leftovers is when we know is the season for celebration (and excessive guilt-free gorging) should stop.   I've to say I'm pretty proud of my[...]

Look, It’s Snowing!

5 years ago

As much as it can in tropical Singapore. Spoiler alert: It's fake snow (figures). Although I'd have to say that silver confetti falls very prettily.   These were some of the outtakes from the last part of my postcard shoot, taken when I was going for that perfect image. Thought they all looked good together in an animated gif. I am very thankful for a[...]

Esther :: The many faces of…

5 years ago

All babies are significant miracles of life, and such a precious gift to families. To her parents, Margaret and Nam Heng, baby Esther was that; a miracle, God's answer to their prayers, a gift that was made exponentially more precious through their patient waiting.   I wouldn't say that I know the complete nature of all the babies of the world, but I would like[...]
