PRE - Family Portrait Day (Part I)

Actually it wasn't a purposely arranged event. It was in conjunction with my 4th sis upcoming big day. She included the family portrait into her wed photo package.............& needless to say more, the rest is history!


So D day came......i believe the rest of all my sis was as busy as myself that afternoon before the appointment at 4pm! Busy for what..............to salon for "hair do"........dressing for all the do, re, mi(s)...........full make-up for ourselves (liquid foundation, loose powder, eyebrow, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, blusher, lipliner, lipstick, gloss, shimmers.......not forgetting accessories, shoes etc etc. In fact i was reminded or rather teased by my huby after he fetched me from d salon............"aiyoyo....why like U getting married like that.....so "khuar cheong"/over?????"
Then i reflected & had to agree with him......was too excited !!

In this current family portrait, it will be in my 30s.........and if i didn't recall mistakenly, the last family portrait i had was in my early 20s when my elder sis graduated from a local Uni (who is 2 years older than me)! Here's the one.....very bad quality (as it was a scanned one)!



Then going backward, there was one in my teenage years which i can't remember why or where it was taken (probably in Ipoh):




Back to the current one, my 4th sis got the idea from her friend to custom-made all my girl-siblings' dresses with the same material she chose & bought/sponsored for us, but we paid for the tailoring fees. All the dresses will be different in design to accustom to every individual body size & shape....of couse!! Not all still has d quality to put on tube.........okay??
She had chosen the beige colour satin which wasn't a very good idea to one who has a bigger frame & fuller body............esp. me!!
After finding a suitable tailor, we discussed & had all our dresses designed.........





I only managed to capture 3 out of the 5 dresses we tailor-made.






One look at it could tell this belongs to me lar.....my mom said looks like maternity dress woh.....nevermind loh, huby said 'nice' enuf edi.......rite?

This blarddy sewing cost 'a bomb'....b'coz they were hand-sew one by one !!!

Mic & myself were the earliest to arrive. So we had our very own shootings around d wedding studio while waiting for the rest to arrive.





And my sisters' stinky mouth (as usual as we used to be) said my lou kung looks like those
"ah mat/chauffeur"............damn it......but that made everyone laugh happily including my "siu hei"/easily hurt huby.....bwahahahaha !!!
You know what...........i got so fascinated the moment i put on my dress. As i hardly wear this type of dress, my boys had their 1st taste of mumy wearing something so sweet and so here was the instantly poured sentence out from them:
"wah.........mumy u look like princess woh!!!"
Then, mumy got so "shiok" already & realised yeah hor.......then mumy turn & turn so that the skirt twist & flow very nicely.........until my 2 notties giggled so excitedly !!! What an evening to remember................


Mic, my 3rd sis, Francis & their cutie pie Nicholas boy..........

Finally minutes later...........the rest of them arrived.




Mag, my 4th sis & Angus.........


This one "leng mou"??????...........my younger sis who is young, smart, tall but big, leng or not..... dun know leh....up to one to judge lor but definitely has her weird side of character.........until she still available now............as she approaches her mid 20s.......hehehehehe!!!



And finally feature my elder sis family.......yeah yeah yeah, the skinniest among all.........not a very good thing bcoz that was the result of being in stresses too much !!!! Among all, she is the most "kuai"/angelic one..........i.e. jimat cermat (still wearing her 10 years old glasses in super big, round, thick shape), 'bestest' temper, always d diplomatic, good people mgmt (very "sik chou yan")........need to mention anymore.........ya one more: the most "lou thou" one (not really care about her outlook) ?????

THEN, all the "leng sou" despite already well prepared at home STILL find themselves not in the best condition...........so here it goes : mumy needed our extra touch on her hair.............Mag lend her expertise & Mic found my elder sis's hair too lousy & definitely gave her a better tie in the end!! And me busying & kepoh' ing with my camera !!


But mom still not satisfied with her hair & finally paid extra 30 bucks for the prof stylist's service........and notice the 2 handsome smart guys in d mirror?????




Finally........you see.......who said man don't care about their look???? My full of grey hair dad also mirror himself so much wor !!!!


As expected, there was real havoc during the positioning arrangement & shooting session.

Scot refuse to sit with Sean.......wanted to sit beside his cousin sister but she refuse to sit with him instead, then Scot got angry & didn't want to cooperate. Tried to coax the kids to move to the left a bit also taken a good long 5 minutes. Next, that baby Nic got stagnant in his dady's arm for too long also started to toss & cried ngii ngii ngek ngek!!! All until our smiles also got tired & sweat all over!!

Not forgetting even the cameraman also shouted until sore throat!!

This morning we had chosen the best group snap shot which would be touched up, fine tuned, printed & framed in 2-3 weeks time!!

Till then, wave good bye to such extra ordinary week end !!
