Photos from my past

While going through my old photos for my latest Star Blog entry, I turned up quite many possible photos but some didn’t make the list because I could only choose 10 memories.

I’ll share some of them here!

The Indian Years

Lahenga

One year, my friends and I were quite into Indian culture and would visit Little India to buy Bollywood movies, eat, and shop for Indian traditional costumes.

One of those friends was also my colleague, and we decided to wear our Indian costumes to our company dinner and dance that year. The dress I’m wearing in the picture is a lahenga. I really liked those because they look like princess dresses!

Lahenga

We were both nominated for the Best Dressed Award that night but my friend was too shy and refused to go up on stage, so I went, and won the award! =) It was one of those win by applause thing. Lucky my department was rowdy enough to garner enough noise for me, haha.

The Grunge Years

This was during more tomboyish, grungy times. I was very into heavy metal and boots. Hmm, I still am now, lol, but not as much.

San Francisco

I was attached in Silicon Valley for a month for work, but also managed to be touristy. The photo above was taken in a disco.

We were driving around somewhere one night and decided to swing by a disco for fun. I can’t remember who brought us there but we found this disco which turned out to be a rip-off.

There were people sitting outside collecting entrance fees (US$5). When we went inside, we were taken through several rooms that were under construction and then finally ended up in a main dance hall. It was EMPTY. There were no customers. There was only a DJ spinning some stupid music and the staff.

We stayed for 10 minutes and then left. lol.


Some random sightseeing photo.


People playing chess in the street.

Osaka

Nara Park

I was in Osaka, Japan, to cover the opening of Universal Studios, but I can’t find those photos now. =( The only photos I can find are those taken at Nara Park, a tourist attraction featuring hundreds of free-roaming deer.

They’re so cute (but smelly) and were allowed to roam even into the carpark! The deer in the picture just happened to be posing beside the carpark sign. Heheh.

Melbourne

This is the famous “sinking library” sculpture outside the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne. Okay, it’s a really badly-taken photo. But it’s still a cool spot!

Younger Days

My younger days, wearing too much lipstick.

Even Younger Days

My even younger days, when lipstick wasn’t needed.

Aww, how I miss my entire life! =)
