When my daughter was eleven, she went on a school trip to Malaysia. I was crazy about grafted cacti. She took this photo for me.

Jane Moh of Borneo Post wrote this lovely write-up and my dear friend Chang Yi shared it in Facebook. So glad that they are still remembering me though I have been back over a month. Back to the grind of day to day life.

Saw this orange noodles in Miri. My cuz Calvin Kong Chak Wan says it made from Cha Siew dripping. It didn't appeal to me first thing in the morning. Now, I would have gobbled it up.
Creating an Everlasting Memory with a Group Photo
Group photos are among the most common kinds of photos people take. However, they aren’t always the most memorable. This is because they are easily spoiled since there are so many subjects in the picture. Someone is always blinking or looking away right when the photo is snapped so it can get pretty hard to take a good group picture. We can make it a little easier for you with these handy tips, however.
Even though some of the best pictures are spontaneous, this is not the case with group photos. People tend to lose their patience pretty fast if you, the photographer, are not prepared beforehand. This reduces the chance that they will cooperate which reduces the chance of a good photo. In order to avoid this, you should already have a location in mind, know the position you will sit them in and already figure out how you are going to frame the picture.
2. Take more than one shot
While not a guarantee of a success, this technique will at least increase your chances of taking a good photo. If your camera has a burst mode then use it. Simply tell everyone that you will take multiple photos and keep snapping away if not.
3. Get in closer
This is a useful tip for any kind of photography, but it can be harder when talking about a group photo. You need to be sure that you do not get too start and close cutting people out of the image. However, if you do manage to find the sweet spot, you will give your subjects’ faces a lot more definition and detail which improves the overall quality of the picture.
