On 8th October 2010, I was photo-documenting the opening Narratives of the East by Zheng Yu Kui and Song Xiao Ling at Mulan Gallery, Singapore. Everyone was amazed by the quality of the ceramics created by the couple-artists from China. I would put it as “Family Oriented Artwork”, whereby family values & aesthetics were considered and included into the art making. Beautiful works! All the best to Yu Kui & Xiao Ling.


Excited guests keep streaming in


Xiao Ling smiling at the wonderful comments she received.


Yu Kui was saying “Hey! look at that handsome photographer!” 😉


“Wah… this is a must get!”

Happy 1st Birthday Brayan! Brayan, son of my 2008 wedding clients, Nick & Jane. Again, i’m going to repeat this, “TIME FLIES!” And Wow! On 18 September 2010, i was actually photographing Brayan’s 1st birthday! This little boy is so cool, he doesn’t smile, and keeps clam even when balloon bursts! I’m so glad to see my clients again and their new little member 😉 All the best Brayan!

Hi-5!

Times really flies, and it’s already almost 4 months from the day i photo-documented Terasaki Family Walk event on 10 July 2010. It was a day of family bonding and eco-lifestyle. Everyone was happy, so were the kids and monkey roaming around from Hort Park to Henderson Wave 🙂 It was really a great event!


This little one was ready to jump onto my camera!


Everyone loves monkey… i think almost everyone 😛


No.1 girl to walk uphill… Gosh! Kids are really full of energy!


Boys will be boys… no games no gain…


“where’s my prize?” asked the little girl


Adorable little japanese boy


At last, saying goodbye to everyone 🙂

Special thanks to Ardilles for the recommendation

Kaleidoscope- A Reminiscence of Art Deco was an art deco furniture exhibition at Alliance Française Art Gallery on 27 April 2010. All the furniture exhibited are of authentic collection and all were well maintained. I wished i could own a few pieces of the furniture on show as they are really a work of art and a timeless collection.


I love that white sofa!


Mr Michael Ong happy with the works on exhibit

Black White Blinds had a special 2 days opening on 6 & 7 April 2010 at Alliance Française Art Gallery. Didier Bayle painted watercolour paintings of Singapore’s old colonial black & white houses, it’s rare now a days to see people still using watercolour as a medium in Singapore. Thumbs up to Didier Bayle for his beautiful portrayal of Singapore.

My photography coverage of France’s National Day on 14th July 2010 at the French Residence was featured in Designare (Homme)  Magazine Vol. 15, August 2010 issue in Dates section. I went, I saw and I photographed lots of Ministers, Ambassadors and yummy breads too! It’s good to see Prof Ho Peng Kee (Senior Minister of State for the Ministry of Law and Home Affairs) and Mr Olivier Caron (French Ambassadors) doing a “yumseng” for France’s National Day!

About 2 months ago, in May 2010. I covered a press conference by UBS philanthropy Forum for Designare Magazine. It was challenging to capture the happy and smiley expressions as the forum was touching on a rather serious issue: helping poverty around the world. I was also amazed to see Cherie Blair, Mathias Terheggen, Kathryn Shih, Mario Marconi and Stelios Haji-Ioannou live at the press conference.

It’s amazing that I’m now covering National University Singapore (NUS) Museum Openings too. Encountering Cheong Soo Pieng opening night on 4th March 2010 was my 1st photography collaboration with NUS Museum of many more to come. An exhibition opening at a museum is of course more grand, as it opened by a number of prominent figures such as Prof. Tommy Koh & Prof. T.K. Sabapathy (Singapore Art Historian). Nonetheless, a bigger space for me to run around to photograph. 🙂
