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[...]

Hannah :: Kids’ Birthday Photography

4 years ago

Let's change the tone up a little in here and talk about babies. Yes, babies! I'm only just beginning to notice that they seem to be everywhere nowadays, or perhaps it's just a sign of my ovaries exploding.   Jokes aside, I have been honoured to be present at many of my clients', past and present, milestones of celebrating their children. It started out with[...]

The Upcycle Project

4 years ago

            What I didn't expect when I volunteered my services to Mizah and Jan earlier this year when I first chanced upon the work they do in the Macpherson community was the extent of which my heart would be touched when I embarked upon The Upcycle Project.   Participate !n Design works with the purpose of bringing an accessibility to[...]

Just a Peek :: The Portsdown Life ft. Amos + Jan (and other updates)

5 years ago

RANDOM NEWS FLASH! I am currently in Perth, Western Australia, and I will be here for a little more than a week with the main purpose of shooting a pre-wedding for a dear old friend of mine, as well as attend his weekend this weekend. While that's happening, I am also taking the chance for some much needed R&R, visit friends, my old university and[...]

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[...]

The end of year is nigh!!!   I usually say that with a heavy lilt of panic in my voice whenever December rolls around each year. However, things seem a little different this time round! All of my heavy backlog has been finished, which frees me to concentrate on personal projects, like figuring out how to use the new film scanner I bought this year[...]

Uyii Life :: A Lookbook Photostory

5 years ago

At first glance, what Uyii Bags represents seems to go against what people may view as a lucrative business in the local context. While other companies are striving to lower their bottom lines and increase their profit margins, what Uyii is more concerned with is making sure all their bags adhere to their philosophy of promoting locally handmade products.   When I first met Liping[...]
