Cousin’s ROM

In tech world, ROM is known as a class of storage media used in computers and other electronic devices. In its strictest sense, ROM refers only to mask ROM, which is fabricated with the desired data permanently stored in it, and thus can never be modified. However, more modern types such as EPROM and flash EEPROM can be erased and re-programmed multiple times; they are still described as “read-only memory” (ROM) because the reprogramming process is generally infrequent, comparatively slow – Wikipedia

However, my translation of ROM here is known as Registration of Marriage. In it’s strictest sense, ROM refers to two person that was fabricated into one with their desired status permanently stored as ‘Not Available’, and thus can never be modified. However, more modern types of ROM has been erased and re-programmed many times too. In one word ‘divorce’ la.. So now you see the two similarity to both ROM?

Now, back to topic, I covered my Cousin Sister’s ROM over the weekend in Buddhist Mahavihara Temple in Brickfields. Initially, there is only me going as official photographer. To cut the long story short, my Sifu who happens to be Aaron’s Cousin was invited too. And to cut another long story short, if Sifu is there, how can the toudai (student) become the official photographer right? I have to give my Sifu face ma. So I suggested that he take the lead and I shot from belakang (knowing how bad my skill is and not further embarrassed myself!). That is how my Cousin Sis ended up with 2 photographers and lots of uninvited guests (according to them).

Before I was officially given this task by Cousin, she make me promised not to post up her beau.ti.ful face in my blog o.O

So, sorry folks. All you see today is many parts of the body part o.O

Kancheong (nervous). Every couple took about 20mins for the ROM. Man sitting further away is my new cousin-in-law *cough*. Don’t play-play as he works as a motorcycle accident attorneys.

With just a paper and filling up at the dotted line, they are now pronounce as “Man & Wife”. His money is now her money. Her Money is still her money. It’s a tradition, so stick with it *sticking out tongue*

I love the reflection on the table!!!!

Working officially on an assignment with my Sifu, I learnt a few new things again – The manipulation of the external flash. I’ve never done so many twisting (of the flash) in my life before. I think my flash is going to break soon if the ROM session is one hour long.

The couple adjourned to the temple for blessing.

Just fooling around. It takes one imagination to tell. *evil grin*

Even by not looking at their face, we can tell that my cousin is made from lace & ribbon & all things nice….

Lighting up the joss sticks. I failed to create a better bokeh on the lotus candle. Sometimes, things don’t happen as how I wanted them to be. Crappy isn’t it?

Parents of both couple praying for their children. How I know what they are praying wor.

Little Baby busy cruising around. Cute la they way she tippy toe.

Blessing by the monk. Sifu busy at work.

Congratulations to my Cousin & CIL (Cousin-in-law. Wow!)

And that makes me related to my Sifu now? Yikes!!!!

    after seeing those pictures one by one, sigh, i still cannot see the front face of the bride, you purposely ar??

    what lens you used?? tamron or canon?

    The Queen says: You never read meh? The bride won’t let me post up any pics with her face on it for some unknown reason. I am using Tamron 28-75mm f2.8. Ever since I bought the Tammy, I have been neglecting the Canon 50mm f1.8. Haha. I think both of us are in the same boat.
