my first prenup

- as the photographer! :)

just spent a very sweaty and tiring day in singapore botanic garden, posing as a free-lance photographer for my two wawie friends. :) although i was just playing saling kit (i was the backup photo wanna be) i still had a lot of fun!!!

it was a very hot and humid day and we were sweating all over, but that didnt stop us! the official photographers were really very dedicated (considering that they're doing this prenup for free) and the two couples were just sooo fun to be with! they did all the poses we asked them to do! hehe it was non-stop laughter all day!
it also doesnt hurt that we had the prenups in a very beautiful place. who could imagine that you can find a place like that in singapore! goodness!

my style for the day was to get as many candid shots as possible. though i did help out with some of the poses, i wanted to focus on the emotion between the couples. thus there were only a few full body shots (i left those to the other photogs)and a lot of closeups (palusot since i dont have a zoom lens i just used my f1.8 the whole day! :p)

these are some of my favorite shots of the couples. :) you can view the rest of the pics here (faye and rommel) and here (steph and joel).

hehe i enjoyed the whole day! tiring but very satisfying!!! enjoy the pics!

Lui's Visit to Singapore! April 2007

Lui came to Singapore last April 04 for the long weekend. :) Grabe sobrang saya. We had lots of fun in the sun. hehe.

It was really so much fun that I still feel I have "vacation hang-over."

We went everywhere! We did everything! We ate LOTS of food!!!

Thursday night, Lui wanted to cook for us. (his specialty daw kuno) hehe. So, me being a good fiance, I offered to help out. Turns out, I almost did all the cooking! Wahahaha. Sanay lang pala magluto when everything is prepared na. But the process of preparing the ingredients, no way man! haha. Buti na lang masarap! (peace lui! hehe)

Then on Friday morning, we left for Bintan. we stayed at Nirwana Gardens. It was a great place. Quiet, serene, clean... It was an almost perferct vacation if not for the gruelling ferry trip to Bintan! Grabe. I thought I'd die right then and there! I was so nauseous that I kept puking and puking until i cannot puke anymore. Kakahya nga kay Lui. Wa poise. :( But aside from that, everything was great. I have a tan now (well, not as much as I want pero enough to give me tan lines hehe) and I had a blast. (I remembered to take medicine on the way back hehe) I'd say, people should give Bintan a chance. it was so much fun. the people are so nice and the food's great!!! We went to Punta Oleh Oleh and ate at Bintan Idol. Food was superb and nice service as well :) It is really a great place. Well worth every penny you'll shell out. Ooohh.. we managed to buy some souveneirs. I'll post a pic of it some time. Cool!

On Sunday, we went to Sentosa naman... Even though it was raining in the afternoon, we still managed to have fun! We did almost everything! Butterfly farm, underwater world, dolphin show, Songs of the sea (which is much better than the magical fountain) and a whole lot more. Sayang lang because we didnt manage to try the luge. It rained na kasi when we were about to try it. tsk sayang. :(

We also managed to go to Vivo City and Chinatown. We spent almost the whole day in Vivo City! My balakang was killing me! Pero I had to endure it for Lui's sake. :) hehe

Oh! We finally found our wedding rings. It's perfect. :) We went to all the jewelry stores in Vivo City and found our rings on the last store. It was gorgeous. Simple yet very very elegant! But a bit pricey. Pero sabi ni Lui oki lang so go! hehehe. :)

Sobrang laugh trip talaga kami and major food trip! I think I gained weight on the few days that Lui was here. Pero no regrets coz i enjoyed every minute of it! Sarap ng chocolate banana cake!! yummmm

Click here for Bintan pictures and here for Sentosa pics. (sidenote: we took two cameras with us. I used my Canon EOS and Lui used my Nikon coolpix. Sad to say, mas maganda pa colors ng nikon point and shoot ko kesa sa Canon SLR ko. tsk. i think i want to change camera!!!)

P.S. Sorry medyo sabog ang story... nagmamadali kasi hehe. :)
