Somehow, I cannot believe that a year has flew by yet again.
Apart from some failed New Year’s resolutions made at the end of last year, I think I pretty much nailed 2014. I started the year with only one thing in mind – do whatever I want. I thought to myself, while I still had no form of whatever commitments, I should adopt 2014 as my gap year to be responsible for my own happiness. Life is, after all, too short for disappointments. This past year, I chose my battles and made it a point for myself to choose gratitude over anything else.
In January, I loved and lost. I also got hired by Mini Monsters Ltd teaching little kids Malay speech and drama.
In February, I turned 24. I also worked on The 24 Hour Selfie which was released on my birthday itself. Never did I realise it impacted so many people when in actual fact I just needed to distract myself from heartbreak but at the same time learn to use my new lens.
In March, I officially launched my photography website where I dump all of my work for your viewing pleasure.
In April, I headed for my first overseas assignment Down Under, in Perth, with ISHQ by Nora Zee. I cannot stop thanking the bride, Sadiyah, as well as Nora for the wonderful opportunity. The amount of faith they had in me when I was still pretty much a noob. A short crash course by a new mentor certainly helped a lot with this assignment.
In May, I headed to Krabi with my mother. It was the first trip out of the country that I brought my mother to all on my own.
In June, I had assistants shooting with me and for me during wedding assignments. Kinda felt good to be a bit of a boss, I suppose?
In July, it was pretty much Ramadhan and Eid. And I had my darling Ikea and Harry Potter buddy Maisarah back in Singapore with me.
In August, I wrote this article on The Shawl Label.
In September, I went to KL for a food fiesta with my darling Shireen.
In October, I became a bridesmaid for the second time this year. This time it was my good friend Aisyah Manab aka Manab who got hitched to the love of her life. Photo credits to Abang Rizal from Tru My Lens.
In November, I travelled to Siam Reap, Cambodia with Nani. Turns out she’s an awesome travel partner. Now to find one for life. Haha.
In December, I’m packed for back to back weddings. So here’s a sneak from one of the weddings I shot.
I’m excited for 2015. Here’s to new adventures and exciting times ahead! Happy New Year everyone!!
