Nothing makes photos more awesome than perfect lighting. I’ve often lament about how Singapore has crappy lighting cause we’re in the tropics but the day I had these photos taken made me eat those words.

I’m also using a new lens. If anyone is wondering, it’s the Canon 50mm f1.4 on a 5Dmkii body. We get asked pretty often what kind of camera/lens we use, it’s getting kinda dull.

Le’boyfriend was also the one taking photos and it seemed as though he’s getting really good at it. He was holding on to my camera for a while so I guess he got some practice. Now to train him into a “Colin”.

It’s quite funny cause he gets into all sorts of stances when taking photos. I’m used to having girls take photos for me and we’re a lot daintier (?) when switching camera angles. My boyfriend is just squatting and kneeling all over the place it’s hard to keep a straight face.

I often if wondered if Singaporeans had a unique dating culture like the Japanese. It seems like most girls in Singapore like to have their bags carried by their boyfriends. It will probably look fine if their bags are manly like the Proenza Schouler Shopping tote that I’m carrying but ladylike purses just look weird on men.

For the record, I hardly let him carry my bag unless I’m struggling with the weight. I like having my belongings near me cause I feel safer that way. If I lose my things, there will be no one to blame except myself.

Does anyone have a unique dating culture in their country they would like to share? It would be interesting to read about it.

My hair is turning a lot lighter, it looks more like a red than purple now. I think I like the colour best at this stage. πŸ™‚
