Penang – photoshoot (laksa & chendol & beh teh saw)

Catherine & Jun is one of my overseas couples and they are currently based in London, some of my readers would have remembered one of the couples I shot in London back in August 2008.  (One of the few things that I *should* have updated, their series of photos was one that was highly commended at my last Master Photographer Association Associateship grading, one of the images won the Contemporary Portrait Awards during the print competition in Nov 08).

Recently, they’ve decided to do a photoshoot in Penang, their hometown where I’ll be doing their actual day wedding as well this coming Oct 2009.  This was a really short trip, I flew in on 22 Jan, did the shoot on 23 Jan, and was at the airport within the next 1 hour for night flight back to Singapore.

What is Penang without the famous hawker fare, and having brought me around the best eateries in London, I had the chance to savour one of the best Penang laksa and the famous cendol, served by the roadside. Brought back 4 boxes of beh teh saw (some pastry with water chestnut filling), a much better variant of the famous Penang tau sa piah (the original version with a saltish sweet bean filling).

Here are some of my favourites from the series:
