We celebrated the completion of my younger sis’ poly days over a small graduation portrait session together with our two twin cousins who grew up closely with us. How far we have come from the days we will sing and dance around our late grandfather when we were young, playing carom around the antique marble table and also all the ancient games that kids of these days do not touch anymore.

A walk into the culture-rich The Intan feels warm and nostalgic, where the home-turned-museum houses numerous Peranakan antiques collected by the owner Alvin over the years. Here’s a full set of Peranakan inspired styled shoot in collaboration with wedding stylist Amperian, which we were invited by Alene of beauty and lifestyle blog, Paper Kitties, to learn more about Akira’s Peranakan roots together with makeup talent Fidelis Toh and jade jeweller Choo YilinContinue Reading

Letter For My Beloved

00-letter-for-my-beloved

They say distance makes the hearts fonder — and very soon, this couple would have to experience it for themselves.

This is the love story of my little cousin Jiamin and her boyfriend Charlton. They are a sweet pair who love each other with the gentlest gestures and kindest words. Despite being together for close to only a year, his overseas military training to America will force them to spend their next two apart.
