Happy Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year and Happy Holidays!

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to wish everyone endless happiness and abundance of prosperity.

As I am writing this post, I am absolutely sure that some of you are already on your 8th winning streak, had already "lou sang" for the 8th time, and probably enjoying the 8th glass of wine while watching a classic oriental movie with the big family.

What's with all the 8s you'd ask? My Asian root is a little fuzzy, currently...but what I know from young is that the number 8 is always associated with the word "Ong" which also means luck (fortune). So, that's why you'd probably hear a lot of Asians using the number 8 in various occasion.

This year, the Lunar New Year came a little early for me as I went back to my "modelling era". Am I still a model? Or am I just someone who poses in front of the camera? Who knows...Why don't you tell if I should be a model or not, after you'd finish going through this post?

All I know is that a photographer friend of mine named Edmund Lee had invited me to do a CNY shoot and there I was posing in traditional and modern outfit while trying not to freeze over by the strong winds of Genting Highlands. 

I also got to meet a new photographer friend of Edmund's, Chia Chung Weng - who happens to be known for his photography in the cosplay scene.

Oh! If you are travelling to Malaysia and want to see some authentic oriental history and scenery, then I would recommend that you make your way up to Chin Swee Caves Temple @Genting Highlands.

But be well prepared with a sweater or jacket, as the winds can get pretty crazy at times up there. I remember the first time I met Edmund was 7 years ago during a similar CNY group shooting and we got close because he literally had to offer me his jacket as I was freezing in my Cheongsam.

Ah...such good times....

Anyways, I am going to make this post short and sweet by sharing with you some of the photos that were taken during 2 weekends back.

Before I forget, allow me to mention that because Edmund wasn't feeling too well, so he didn't have much time to edit much of the pictures, so rest assured that I will be updating this post as soon as there's more pictures.

So...What do you think of the pictures? Let me know your honest opinions about them in the comment box below and if I should continue modelling?

Till the next post, have a joyous and auspicious year ahead!
