History

I picked up my first camera when I turned two, it was around the time my brother was born. In those days, my dad was busy building his business and my mum was busy documenting her two baby boys growing up. She knew nothing about cameras save for that it was a device which could help her store memories for life. Borrowing her sister’s then film SLR; she taught herself how to use it to photograph me. She developed the photos at the local lab in our hometown in Brunei and upon seeing pictures of myself, I was motivated to photograph my mum while she shot me and my brother. It so happened that my dad had a broken Kodak pocket instamatic camera which she gave me so I could pretend to take photographs. I didn’t know that the camera wasn’t loaded with film, so I still paid attention when framing images through the tiny viewfinder, not really knowing what framing really meant at that age. Somehow I would wait for some moment to appear before the finder and make my imaginary pictures. I would ask my mum where my pictures were whenever she came back from the photolab, she would simply smile at her baby boy. My mum photographed me everyday until my 12th birthday. I continue to be fascinated everytime I look in the viewfinder, hoping for something intriguing to happen.

Additionally, I manage the following websites: LondonEater and Noir

    There are many women body types and depending on your shape, you will definitely get the best design that fits you
    perfectly. The main reason is that the store takes great care
    while choosing the best fabric for the dresses.
    Getting admitted to the best fashion design school is only the beginning of a long and exciting journey
    of becoming a top caliber fashion designer.

    Not all teenagers are that rich enough to spend
    money on apparels in order to catch up with these trends.
    The boxes are offered in various sizes, thus one can have special
    tiny and cute box to put the ring in it or at the same time heavy trinkets can be kept
    safe in artistic big boxes. Have you ever had to turn down an invitation because you literally had “nothing to wear.
