While I'm the editor of Singapore Brides, I'm also gallivanting in various areas of the media, and one of which is my styling for Simply Her for the past two months. While Simply Her may not be the favourite local print media amongst the fashion crowd, I was surprised to find out how wide the readership is - and the thing about Simply Her is that we tend to shoot "real people". Shooting "real people" [as opposed to models] is quite the challenge. Sometimes you have people that run to the camera after every shot to "make sure they don't look fat", other times you just have fuss pots who insist that they'd be shot a certain way and no other way. Seriously. Sometimes I don't think I get paid enough to deal with shit like that.
This month though, I was thrilled to receive a new column and when my editor [coincidentally, she was also my lecturer in school!] briefed me about it, I knew whom exactly I needed to shoot:
For now, I have to prep for another shoot tomorrow. And study for my impending Spanish exam. Oh, brother.
