a swim and a missed opportunity

After a tiring day at work, I went for a swim with my former housemates. I plunged in the pool as soon as I get there. Jon agreed to teach me how to swim making me do frog kick for my first lesson. Anne brought with her her Cybershot TX10 which is an underwater camera so we took a lot of underwater photos though it is not allowed. The activity was followed by a sumptuous dinner at Anne and Laurence’s house after, bessie’s Caldereta satisfied our appetite.

Missed opportunity – Yesterday I confirmed on a brochure modeling shoot for tuesday. Part of the details given is that I would pose like I’m patiently learning how to cook which I think is with other models of different races. I’m cool with all the details given and was so excited about; the agent texted me this afternoon that the client want to move the shoot date. Sadly, I am working on all the date options they gave me.

After the charity project I did early last quarter of 2012, I haven’t earned from modelling and photography yet, making my charity fund zero. Nevertheless, like what the bible says in Philippians 4:19, ‘But my God–so great is His wealth of glory in Christ Jesus–will fully supply every need of yours.’

Asia’s Next Top Model

After watching episode 1, I found out that there’s also episode 2 available and so on..

So I watched episode 2, instead of doing my journalism assignment. The ending is an undone assignment as I head to Orchard after watching to settle some things. After finishing this errand I went shopping unplanned. Oh my, I should stop or else I’ll be broke on start of the year. I went to Zara, Top Shop, Berksha, H&M, Warehouse and Forever 21. Since they’re all western brands, the collections are for winter which favors me. Scarfs, knitted Sweat shirts, jackets and coats are everywhere to find. Though, I bought one shirt from Zara and a collared shirts with sleeve from Forever 21. I also reserved the dress in the mannequin in Forever 21, hehe. And lastly I found a shopping bag as a gift for Ms. Heather in H&M.

Going back to Asia’s Next Top Model, Helena from Hong Kong mentioned that she did 4 or 5 nude shoots already and one of the girl commented ‘Well, you have big tits, its ok, then Monica from Thailand said ‘If I have big tits I’ll do nude shoots too and make the world jealous’, haha. As an art lover, I love how nude photos can be classy, creative and tasty. As a model, I don’t have enough guts to do it. I’m really shy and uncomfortable in doing so. The bravest I had done is nothing compared what professional models do. It is a fact though that there is no professional top model who haven’t done nude.

my first underwater photoshoot

I woke up early for my first underwater photo shoot. I’ve been dying to do this and had been talking with a good photographer Daniel Poh for quite some time now. As a photographer and a person with a regular job, modeling is least on my priority now but I am still willing to do shoots for self fulfillment and to earn. I am not a swimmer and I just tried scuba diving once, I really know the limits of what I can do but I prepare for things I want to achieve. For this shoot I took ounce of guts and practice.
