alright. i’m supposed to be doing my FYP right now.
but blogging won’t take too long.
so yea HERE I AM! :Dit has been quite a happening week for me.
meeting up with my professor and having a reality check.
the workload from school is piling up as well!
i went for an interview as well.
but it wasn’t with SQ girls.
very nice try but you girls not attentive enough.
i got a tattoo on my wrist!
how to be flight attendant with SQ neh!

anyway i was approached by M.R to try out DJ-ing.
but being a CHEE NA PIANG,
it was a HUGE problem for me to host in english.
it was for 98.7fm anyway.
and i think i screwed it up big time.
but well. at least i got a taste of how it’s like DJ-ing,
and i made a new cute friend – Shan Wee!
and i didn’t know he was dating Jacqui!
hahahaha. cuteness.

it really got me all jittery before the sound test
that i drank a lot of beer at home before heading to mediacorp.
i know it sounds so silly.
but yea. that’s me for you.
and it was Shan’s birthday on Thursday as well.
and i got him 2 cans of Heineken.
HAHA. talking about alcoholism huh?

i was out with miumiu on friday night.
oh boy! how i LOVE friday nights!
the thought about having absolutely nothing to do the next day.

and i like this place!
Accessible and it has nice drinks and music.
even the waiters are very nice to talk to.
i was supposed to paint my room on Saturday.
so i put off the idea and settled with shopping instead!
i wanna paint my room brown! and white!
and i wanna fill my walls with picture frames!anyway,
i took this new elective in school called
Black and white photography.
we’ll get to take pictures.
and learn the elements that make up a good picture.
and the best part is –
i’ll get to learn how to develop my very own pictures!


weeeee! as much as i am afraid of the dark room
(after watching “Shutter”)
i’m extremely thrilled about being able to learn
how everything works in photography!
:D :D :D

i have my favourites already!

by Henri Cartier-Bresson,
this one is called Behind the Gare St. Lazare.
there is a geometry between the person in front and the poster behind him
which shows a man jumping in the same posture in the opposite direction.
and to think that this picture will only exist in that SPLIT moment
makes it very beautiful already!

This following one is a famous piece of work by Robert Capa.
he actually got the passion and courage to
walk right into a battlefield and shoot there.

it is still being debated as to whether the man in the picture lost his life right there
at that very moment when he got shot.
and i really cannot imagine how it is like for Robert Capa
to witness the war like this – in such close proximity.

anyway another bonus is that…

he lost his life on a mine field.
looking at the last frame taken in his camera sent chills down my spine.
i really respect his works a lot!
and this is one of the quotes by him.
“The desire of any war photographer is to be put out of business.”

but my favourite still has to be Martine Franck!
she is really good at photographing children.
i read a monograph by her called Martine Franck – One Day to The Next
and a lot of her works being featured in there are really heartwarming.

these are two of my favourites!

the old lady looks really cheery as compared to those in the background.
it may just be a very simple picture but it brings so much joy.

i like this too!

after sharing my two cents worth on photographie noir & blanc,
here is some personal camwhoring.

i bought this dress despite strong objections.
apparently miumiu said that it is UGLY!
and jawslyn told me its hard to carry it off.BUT I STILL BOUGHT IT!
because i love it.
and it feels comfortable walking around in it!
wore it with LOTSA BANGLES!
(i love them!)
i hope i looked fine!
i bought a new cap from Queen’s Couture too!
very much!
am going to wear it soon!
and show everybody!
wee wee weets!i’m meeting up with my girlfriends again later!
i love them!
yay yay yay.
i’m happy~
