I had a short couple of days un-paid leave (common cost-reduction measures in the corporate world in this uncertain economic climate) break in
This time wasn’t any different; it’s the first time we’ve gone out together in full force(my dad, mom, sis & me) for vacation in years. Shared the room with my mom & dad which, I haven’t done so since I was a little kid (when we used to stay under a roof with all of dad’s other sibling’s family). By the end of the trip I sported panda eyes, coz I had to cope with both of the snoring choo-choo trains going off early at night! =p
Brought my camera gear along; there were many interesting subjects to shoot during the course of the trip, but the shutter bug was also on vacation… the prospect of hauling my bulky camera gear along thru the MRT onto the crowded streets of Orchard Road or City Hall did not seem inviting… maybe I should come along with a kaki-photographer fellow traveler next time…
I graduated again!
Took some family photos at a studio on the morning of my sis’ convocation day ~ for SGD250!!!
The only time I took the lens cover off was for the convocation ceremony at Orchard Hotel. Here are some of the shots:
Congrats sis ~ you’ve finally graduated!
~ the ‘V’ictory sign is about the only pose she knows… -_-
Quite a grand venue but a relatively small scale function with only handful of international graduates from all over ~ have seen quite a number of Malaysians, Indonesian, Filipino, Hongkie, Indians & an African but only a handful of Singaporeans. Small scale coz the main ceremony is held at the main campus in
Eagerly waiting for the defining moment…
*didn’t get a good shot here, but we already paid SGD50 for the convo photos which should come out in a weeks time*
One for the family… except for the ang moh who came out of nowhere ^_*
* now that the PC fair is coming to town this weekend, my sis' definitely going to bug me to get her that EeePC as her graduation gift... xp *
That's all folks! =)
