2 kids, 2 years apart, 2 cheeky boys, 2 very different personalities, 2 very different tastes…. just too much to handle sometimes, I don’t remember my parents having such a hard time.






Tristan’s art piece that is due today, which happens to be the last day of the term.  Guess who helped him with the colouring? 🙂

Newborn nephew

It has been 2 years since my sister got married and just a week after their 2nd anniversary, they are now proud parents of this little fella…

Brought my kids down today to see their baby cousin (and future playmate) at TMC, guess I’m not the only one that’s excited!


Tristan looked somewhat  intrigued….



Kyan, well er, I don’t know what to say. Let the picture speaks for itself.

Vanessa & Cyprian – 21 Feb 2009

I met up with Vanessa & Cyprian in a swanky pub in Soho, London, just before my photoshoot in UK last August, and we’ve been corresponding via email ever since.  We could hardly believe how time just flies and that last meeting sipping Mojito and wine was like half a year ago!

This is one example of weddings that I like a lot – simple and intimate and here are some highlights for the couple, before they fly back to London for work in a few days time.

I really love photographing kids, and one thing that would interest most people is, what on earth is going on in these little minds? 😀

WPPI 2009 – Accolades of Excellence

The WPPI 16×20 is one of the international competitions that’s often regarded as the Oscars equivalent of wedding and portrait photography, and probably one of the very few competitions that the big guys and legends of wedding photography (folks like Jerry Ghonis, Yervant, David Oliver) take part in.  I’ve always wanted to attend the seminar but for the past few years, I’ve got to photoshoots in Singapore that tied me down.  Last week, I’ve received some well wishes from fella photographer, some even from Malaysia, who saw my prints hung up there, amongst the finalists, in the hall of fame.  What really sucks about not being there is, you have no idea which prints you’ve won…until this morning.

Just received the email from WPPI about 3 of my images being awarded Accolade of Excellence!  Not too bad for a first attempt, and considering I’ve only sent in 4 pieces (they do cost a lot of money to print, considering it’s 16×20, postage and all just adds on).



and the 3 pieces are…


Looks familiar eh? Ivy & Suan Hau must be very happy, this is the 3rd International award!


The quirky image shot in Arab Street, and ….


Another of my familiar favourites, this photo taken in Melbourne has won it’s 3rd International Awards, along with AGWPJA and Contemporary Wedding Portrait during the MPA Singapore print competition last Nov 08.

5 years ago, I would not have imagined myself being able to compete in such gruelling competitions, and I really owe my couples and mentors for their constant support and encouragement. So a BIG thank you to all you out there! 🙂

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:

Chris & Pauline – 06 December 2008

Chris & Pauline are probably one of the most fun-loving couples I’ve met this year and I truly enjoyed every moment of it. 

And, believe it or not, both of them are dentist by profession.

Chris: Still amazed by how you can figure out which “bite” belongs to Pauline. :p

Welcome to the new blog!

Have finally decided to bite the bullet and host my blog on my server.  3 big reasons why I want to do so:

1. Blog hosted in Singapore means local folks gets to surf my blog at a muuuuuuuuuuch faster, yes, I mean much much faster speed.

2. It’s easier to remember my blog address by simply adding a /blog/ suffix behind my URL

3. With funky plugins that helps me upload and update the files, esp the gallery features, it’s easier to get things updated. Easy update = More posts to come! 🙂
