MING + STACIE
It has been two years since I've visited Singapore, which also means it's been two years since I've last seen the people that I grew up with/around. I figured it was about time to go back and revisit my roots, and hopefully still be able to blend in. Spoiler alert: I stick out like a sore thumb with my half-Australian accent and (believe it or not) the way I dress. Anyway, I digress. Moving away has helped me realise who are the friends I'll keep for life, and the ones that are just a little bit too far out of reach. Some people drift away, and some stay close. It's part of life, it happens. Which is why this photoshoot was special.
Introducing Ming + Stacie. I've know Ming for about 10 years now. We went to high school together and he was also one of the very few people that actually made the trek down under to visit me. Stacie... Well, we were Instagram friends for a couple months before, but I've never actually met or spoken to her until the day before the photoshoot. We're equally short and have the same hairstyle - we were bound to get along! It was such a hot and humid and sweaty day, but these guys soldiered on out and about. We also popped into a free movie screening/exhibition for some free educational entertainment and air-conditioning. Thank you BOTH for being so cooperative and for being such troopers despite the heat. Congratulations on your first ever photoshoot! I hope this is the first of many to come in the future. ;)
