Just a few days ago I decided to meet up with two faithful readers of my tiny blog: Eve and Ai Ling.
Like typical Penangnites, we went for a hawker food lunch which the girls generously paid for before I could get my hands on the tab.
So to return the favour, I bought them coffee later at Coffee Bean where we had a little chat among ourselves.
I was on a trigger happy mood that day when it came to snapping pictures.
So much that both Eve and Ai Ling were bordering "PISSED OFF" when it came to me snapping candid pictures of them.
The funny thing about photos is that some people look different when they're posing for the camera than when they have candid shots taken of them.
Candid shots sometimes yield "Funny results".
This is how I normally would look when I'm prepared for the camera shot.
And this is how I look when the sonofabitch photographer takes a picture of me without warning.
William Hung's mother once told the press NOT to take pictures of her son from beneath the chin because it makes him look fat.
I shall get my mother to do a similar press release for me.
The good news is that this is only the case for SOME people... not all...
Some people look the same in whatever camera shots you take of them.
Allow me to illustrate.
This is how Eve normally looks when you take a PROPER photo of her.A very very stunning girl in real life... so much that even this picture doesn't do justice.
And this is how Eve looks... when I take bad candid pictures of her.
Or when I take even worse candid pictures of her.
Now lets move on to Ai Ling.
This is Ai Ling when she's posing for the shot.And Ai Ling when she's not prepared for the shot.
See the difference?
No? Because there ISN'T a difference...
Ai Ling is in the category of: immune to "looking funny in candid shots".
So there you have it.
Meet Eve and Ai Ling.
Eve: You still love me right? Right????
