We had this planned for almost a year. Close friends and family, a dining room, and a surprise my parents will never forget. I was only back for a week, sorry to the people that I said that I would see, but I lived with my cousins for the first 4 days, setting everything up, and the dinner was on the 5th.
"I do know that everybody wished they had parents like ours, but after tonight, you, wished you had children like us." - From my brother's speech, although backed by popular demand, I won the award for best speech.
The Terminator. Look at them arms.
Thanks Dee, for helping me photograph. I would have done it but I for once,
wanted to be in the pictures. Did the editting tho.
Oh and guess who was the other photographer who still hasn't gave me them pictures yet?

I've been mixing with the Kewei boys a lot for the past couple of weeks. Great bunch of guys, knew them for ages. The story is that the RVN boys and I have this great football rivalry thing going on with the Keweis since we were kids. To me, the score was never settled. We beat them as many times as they beat us.
Aside from that, I always looked at them as exactly the same bunch of blokes as us. Just that we grew up in different places and went to different schools. They were from Damansara Utama. Times with them were real old school fun. The shit that we'd probably do if the rest of the RVN boys were in Melbourne. We went to the Museum today.
This is Justin, the so-called 'captain' of the Keweis. Ah Mai and him just touched down from Adelaide. So it's like a huge ass reunion for them boys, and I'm just so so jealous.
We were walking back from Lord of the Fries @ Flinder's Street.
On a seperate note, there was this girl that I met in Seven yesterday who came up to me and asked me if I was Zillieman. I said yes then she continued to tell me that she reads my blog.
If that was true and if you ARE reading this (I think your name was Sue, I'm so sorry the music was really loud) I just want to say that you are such a sweet girl for saying hi and I should have caught you for a minute or two to talk about it because I am so grateful when something like this happens. Plus it's always good to hear from an outsider's point of view.
You take care now.

This is the work of Michael Mann, one of the brilliant directors of our generation. He's the man who brought us The Last of the Mohicans, Heat, Ali, Miami Vice and the upcoming Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale (and mind you, these two actors just don't work with ANYBODY). The thing about him is how much he dictates the style of photography in his movies. I can tell from a mile away that it's Michael Mann feature. Strictly composed and raw to it's core. Stills were taken from Collateral, starring Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx.
The thing about inspiration is that you can get it anywhere. One of them places where I get mine are movies. I think it's cool that technology permits me to watch movies on my computer. Or anywhere actually. I have a pretty extensive movie collection and I'm really proud of it to be honest. I never delete my movies, even when I get bored of them. I have this bad habit of watching movies till late at night, or just until the trams start moving.
