    📸 * Feb Event Photoshoots: 3, Cancelled due to Covid 19: 2 - 3

    🎉 1. Learnt how to shoot in Clubs from master of the night David shifu. 😎


    For a long time shooting at night / in low light / using external, off camera flashes were the scariest thing ever to me! 😱


    📸 David is a long time photog friend who has always been very nice, encouraging, as well as more than happy to share. 😁



    Thanks David for teaching, you da best!! ✌🏻 And for bringing me to WAN and 1 Altitude as well. 🤣


    🤷🏻‍♀️ Sidenote I never liked clubbing or drinking when I turned 18 but recently started liking it.. like 10 years later?! hahaha 🎉


    📸 2. Got to, courtesy of Sony, try out their Alpha 7R III for a couple of weeks. 😍


    My 1st camera was a 2nd hand Nikon from my cousin who liked to photograph birds and was upgrading. 🕊


    🙊 I just kind of got used to it and stuck with Nikon ever since.. think I was 12 or 13 years old when I got my that 1st camera.. so that's like almost 15 years ago! 😂



    📸 It was awesome to try out Sony's system, and not as hard as I thought to get used to another camera brand's set of controls. 😁


    The Sony A7R III was absolutely delicious to use 😋 and whilst I am lazy AF to change my entire system, selling all my lenses and the cost of buying new gear..


    I'd definitely give the Sony system a closer look and comparison the next time I have to upgrade. 😁



    My fav White Tiger shot from the Zoo! 😍

    ✈️ 3. Confirmed my May, Komodo Diving Expedition amidst the Coronavirus saga. 🐊

    Number of Participants: 6


    🙈 Challenging times to get people to Travel.


    we've bought our air tickets! ✌🏻 may we make it there without any travel bans!


    Hope to get some good Photos of the Komodo Dragons and Manta Rays. 😍




    🥰 4. Connected with a family member that I felt could truly empathize with me.


    it's not easy to talk about your feelings, it can be even harder to find someone who understands your situation..


    is able to empathize with you, and make you feel like you're not totally crazy. 😵


    that it's okay to feel whatever you're feeling. and no you're not asking for too much. 💕


    💃🏻 5. spent Valentine's Day with my bestie Dee, at my hot cousin's bar 🤣 (well, he's working there hahaha)!


    the brownie dessert was sooooo goooood omg - as were the drinks! the bar is Manhattan btw @ Regent Hotel! 😍


    though we've only known each other for like 1.5 years I feel like I've known her forever!! 💕



    she is such a bright soul I am so happy to have in my life. 🙆🏻


    I am going to miss you so much whilst you go on your sabbatical Dee! but I am also so excited for you and the new adventures you will have! ☺️



    6. My sis tried to sell me at a comedy show @ PPT KTV. 🤣


    it was pretty funny how she immediately wanted us to sign up for this together back in Jan..


    realised she couldn't make it because she was supposed to fly to Shanghai for internship..


    then realised she could again because.. Coronavirus. 🤷🏻‍♀️



    look at all these people who turned up to sell me?! 👀 DO YOU GUYS WANT TO SELL ME THAT BADLY?! 🥺


    my hot Manhattan cousin Alson came 🤣, Kanesh came, Cherie's bf Zac came.. but honestly thanks for coming guys, I hope ya'll had a good laugh. 🤪 'cause I sure did!



    🥰 and thank you Cherie for trying to sell me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ too bad the guys I'd like to know better never seem to feel the same.


    😂 welp, it's a great exercise of "not everyone will like you" + "dont try to please everyone - you can't".


    7. learnt about Enneagrams - I'm supposedly a crazy, emotional 4, followed by 2 and 7. 🤪


    I love personality tests. 😁 they can help you understand so much about yourself that you might never have been able to put into words.



    my MBTI is INFJ / INFP. whilst it did help me understand myself a lot better, the Enneagram description helped me understand myself a lot in terms of emotions and motivations, as well as the emotions and motivations of others.


    whilst it would definitely be a chore to read up on all 16 types of MBTIs to understand other people better 🤷🏻‍♀️



    the Enneagram describes 9 types of motivations / fears that all of us more or less have a bit of.


    by recognising someone's main dominant type, once can better understand someone's actions and why they do what they do. 🙊


    (particularly helpful to understand people whom.. let's just say you really don't understand at all) 🤷🏻‍♀️

    📸 8. feeling the effects of the Covid 19 saga on my Events Photog jobs 😕


    I had come to a point where I'd been doing job after job, shooting - editing - shooting.


    I wouldn't say it was back to back, breathless or super busy, but it was comfortable.


    👻 whilst a couple of my photoshoots got canceled in Feb, March is practically empty as companies have been cancelling / postponing Events due to the Dorscon Orange alert. 🍊



    * Number of Event Photoshoots engaged for in Feb: 3


    1. SFA CNY Celebrations 2. Ahana's 2nd Birthday

    3. Big Idea Ventures Tasting Session, Headshots, Teamshots


    * Number of Photoshoots cancelled due to Coronavirus: 2 - 3


    1. Wedding Anniversary

    2. Fengshui Shoots


    nevertheless, it's been nice to have some time to get my life together more ⏰think and plan more seriously what I want to do..


    ☺️ do things I've been wanting to do - like go for Dance class, learn how to DJ, do some redecorating of my room.. 👩🏻‍🎤


    meanwhile..

    💅🏻 keep calm and.. get yo nails done.

    thanks Cherie for the manicure!

    never did extensions before lol. 🤣
