Annual Dinner

IDC Dancers
Originally uploaded by Lye Hock.

It was our company's 41st annual dinner last Saturday night. Themed "The Magical World of Cartoons", it was a riot of colourful performances. I see more people using DSLRs this time. At least a dozen of them were shooting away throughout the night. A healthy trend ever since DSLRs became more affordable.

Photo shot with Nikon D200 and the Nikkor 18-200VR. Noise control not spectacular in Nikons hence never shot higher than ISO800.

Anniversary prayers

Back in Taiping on the weekend of 8 July for father's 4th anniversary prayers. The temple was not crowded as is the case during Cheng Beng season. A quick toss of coins to confirm his presence after laying down the offerings. And another toss later before burning the prayer items....

Alex & Boey

Congratulations to Alex & Boey on their wedding. Alex is Lai Ping's cousin and we were given the opportunity to shoot their big day. It started early with a photoshoot of the bridal make-up session, then the tea ceremonies on both sides of the families and finally the wedding dinner.

It was a good experience but we were really all worn out at the end! Not easy being a wedding pixman. Now we know why they charge so much!
