One month to go for engagement shoot

leave a comment »

I was very excited last week as it’s only 1 month to count for my engagement shoot in Los Angeles..

And when i was about to document my EXCITMENT down…. the spread of swine flu in Mexico and some cases in California in USA made me a bit worry on our trip..

Oh, what? California also reported cases of swine flu??! No doubt i’ll be concious on every news on recent development these days and i hope it won’t spread fast and wide…


below is just my feelings before the report of the swine flu..

“Exited excited….one month to go for our engagement shoot in Los Angeles…

Haven’t put up the amazing works of our photographer yet, coz i’d like to give a little surprise to my friends to see our photos first before presenting the talented photographer to them..

REALLY Excited for the coming trip!!”
