conversing dolls i came across on my walk home. since no one was tending to them, i think they have been disowned.
they told me that at the end, everything can be distilled down to what “she said he said”. a million and one ways to proceed, each more complicated than the one before, and more unpredictable.
all i have to say regarding this epic chess match, is that i hope i never stop seeing and feeling something new, bizarre or unexpected everyday.
because if i do i’d rather fall off the board.
i almost forgot about him.
above are my entries for the 2010 singapore young photographer award. missed the deadline last time round and since this is my last opportunity to enter this bi-annual competition, i thought i’d give it a go. much love and thanks to my dear sarah for helping me with the process given my absence from singapore.
from top — champagne glasses and petals (abstract), sinatra (portrait), sepia arcadia #1 (nature), tattoo artist (people at work), saivite sadhu (portrait), flight of the light (night scene).

have been experimenting with the square crop a little, and it is a little more challenging in terms of composition than the typical 2:3 or 3:4 ratios that i am more familiar with.

me and sarah celebrated our 1-year anniversary together with a breakfast at “hatched”. when we entered, i suggested that we take the seat beside the windows, where soft morning light was coming through. i know – such photographer behaviour.
we had “bacon rap” to start —
followed by “burly benedict”, which is eggs benedict but with wagyu beef. delicious.
and to top it off, we had a waffle. i can’t remember what they called it, though they have got some special name for it. love the way they presented the butter and the maple syrup.
and to really top it off, a couple of quick portraits with the gorgeous window light. sarah’s comment on the picture right below: “i need a haircut”.
through the drinking glass —
after stuffing ourselves, we went to coffee bean at guthrie house to study (yes, i do study). rather anti-climatic but this is the exam period.
i am sure i have said this before, i am so thankful that i have sarah in my life. she is a real blessing to me, and i am most struck by how supportive and loving she is when it comes to my hopes and fears.
i only pray that i don’t let her down, and all the other people around me who care as well.
