I am sure many of you have heard of the Myanmar cyclone
which resulted in many homeless and dead right?
I chance upon this group of people who started this PhotoAid
project. What they do is that, they will takes photos for tourist, or in fact anyone, including pets like me ***smile**** with the Merlion
(for those who are not sure whats a merlion, hold on there, I will show you in a while) as a background for a small donation of $10, you can donate more if you want.
And the wonderful thing about this is that you can be sure that the donation goes straight to the victims in Myanmar and not to the government ....... I dont know what to say of them ........
The donation will go through the Salvation Army
who will channel this sum of money to the victim without passing through the government !! Isn't this great ?
So last sunday, I brought Gal Gal and uncle T to this event and look at the beautiful pictures they took for us ! See the white half fish, half lion creature behind which is vomiting water ? Thats the Merlion.
Those photographers are so funny ! They kept trying to get my attention by ringing a bell, blewing whistles, calling me ..... and God knows what else they did ..... ..... They adore me so much that they are dying for me to look at them .... hiak hiak hiak
And with this small receipt, I can go online to download the softcopy of the photo, and guess what? They gave me ONE hard copy too !! How cool !!
Oh this is not all !!! We went all the way there to look for Uncle C who took some very nice pics of Gal Gal and me !! But Gal Gal said that taking this photo is very tiring, she said its even more tiring than having your wedding photo taking. As Uncle C kept telling her, smile, look this way, tilt your head to the left, to the right, dont move ................ hahahahahahaha .... that lazy gal ....
Phew ! What a tiring day for me ...... after the photo taking, I just sat by the sea and relax and watch the day goes by .....
