Hectic schedules throughout after I returned from Japan. Photoshoots, meetings, with agencies, stylists, editors... Things were going up and down in such extremes I think I aged a couple years in the span of a few days. But it's all good, I'm still alive (just having a horrible flu, sore throat... and I think the fever's coming up), I even received an early birthday present. *happy*

Did some amazing photoshoots and met great new people to collaborate with. Retouching's a pain but oh well... Nothing I can do about it ;_;

I'm going back to Japan again. Yoshitaka Amano's exhibition~~! Amano's exhibition!

PS: For those who're still contemplating about Dominance War IV, it's not too late, yet, just do it~! Deadline is 11th May.

Oh god. I really feel miserable. Flu, sore throat, I hate youuuu.

Ing Cup Finals - Part II

So far the score's 1-1. 3 to win.

Lee Changho 9P won the first game, Choi Cheol Han 9P won the 2nd.

Just a couple photos.

Choi Cheol Han after winning the game today.

Score counting by Ing rules. Fill the board with all stones...

Go Seigen dropped by Singapore Weiqi Association on both days to comment on the games.

Spectators and reporters.

Go sensei.

Ing Cup Finals - Part I

We're staying at The Fullerton Hotel.
I really love my job sometimes.

Beds are a bit small after they'd been split up, but awesome bathroom is awesome bathroom.

Shameless self portrait moment with the mirror which I have in almost every hotel I stay in. Hehe.

My roommate sleeps early. So for the first night I forced myself as well, and woke up at 1am having a hard time falling back asleep because it's just so different from my usual schedules.

8am a reporter called for Go Seigen's caretaker. (I was roomed next to him, but had swapped with the caretaker and daughter because their rooms were way too far apart) *sighs* There went my jingna-attempts-to-sleep-in and jingna-takes-the-elevator-with-go-seigen-everyday plan.

Oh then I had breakfast a table next to him this morning. Hahaha.

Headed for Singapore Flyer after lunch. We had surprisingly nice clouds today (which never, ever, appear, when I am doing my photoshoots. Why, oh tell me why.)

Marina Barrage from the Singapore Flyer.

Fast-forwarding my afternoon (where I had a shoot with everyone being about 1.5hours late), welcoming dinner was held at Lao Beijing. Go Seigen (I found out most generally address him as 吴老师, Joe and I were wondering a million possibilities...) actually insisted on taking the chartered bus with us instead of being chauffeured to the restaurant. Such a grand honour was something we never expected. He is 95 afterall. And frail like nothing else.

Go Seigen and wife. 吴清源和夫人。

Just seeing them was surreal. And she's really lovely and... cute. Back in the hotel after dinner while waiting for others in the lobby she started talking to me, despite my several attempts of "I cannot understand Japanese", “我不会说日语”, "Nihongo wo wakarimasen..." She continued on fervently. Hahaha.

Back to the dinner. While I was busying myself with taking photos of others someone suggested to take a shot for us. I was like. Oh. I didn't think about that. Lol?

Jingna with the go master and his wife. (Yeah, please pardon my really horrible hair, after a day of running around and all)

I was approached a couple times by teens in a youth weiqi connection group saying they'd seen my coverage on the Ing Cup Semi-finals, which somehow became a motivation for me to do this post tonight.

At the end of the dinner Go-sensei 题字ed for Singapore (the Weiqi Association, rather).

It's so painfully difficult for him to get up I can't believe they put him through this. Oh god, and I think more camera flashes went off than at the finale of Christian Dior Couture runway's finale walk backstage.

Go Seigen and wife, with Choi Chul Han (崔哲澣) 9P (apparently this is the spelling I saw on the roomlist provided by the hotel, but on the official pamphlets it's all Choi Cheol Han?) and Lee Changho (李昌鎬) 9P, the finalists.

Did I mention I don't agree with Choi Chul Han's new hairstyle? D:

Alright, that's all for this update (oh Wireless@SG, thank you so).

Tomorrow the first game begins.

PS: Please pardon any grammar and vocab misuse, I'm severely lacking in rest and time. >_< More on Ing Cup:

July Editorials

Remember the Singapore Flyer shots back in May? Here are some finals :D

And the pair of Chanel heels that I so loved and cropped off in the shot. XDDD

Lasalle ones, realized I never got around to posting the actual pictures other than the handphone snaps of the book. Did 10 shots in total.


Alright that's all for now - mainly to satisfy PA who called me today saying I should post a few more photos from shoots, because images of my travels and life are just too boring.

Kidding, I just wanted to get my angst-ridden entry off the top of this page really.

Thanks for the help you gave me when I was stranded at the Charles de Gaulle airport my dear friend. :D

Singapore Flyer

Only when I came back did I realize I took no shots of the place at all except these 2-3 that were angle tests before I started with my model. We went up for 2 rounds and there's a shot that I really really like taken in the capsule. Must wait till July's issue's out before I can post it T___T

Today's most expensive item was a bag from Chanel, I am however really really really in love with the heels, which, er, I think I cropped out in my shot for that look. ^^;

Last shoot that's near is on Saturday, then I'll finally have days off from shooting to start on pictures from as far back as November.

The speaker list this year for CGOverdrive's exciting, I wanna go~
