Bangkok Girl Blog Guest Post: Sukhumvit Wife Syndrome

DSC_0166

A while back I had written a satirical piece for a local expat magazine about being a Sukhumvit Housewife. The article was never used so I thought my friend Anna might like to have it on her very popular blog: Bangkok Girl Blog!

Check out my post here. 

It is meant to be funny; very tongue in cheek. Some lady on Twitter didn’t understand my sarcasm and thought my write up was super (insert expletive here) bratty. Needless to say, others enjoyed it and I hope you will too.

Life is all about connections. Who you know will get you further than what you know a lot of the time.

WP&E is the leading Women, Professionals and Entrepreneur networking group in Bangkok. They were looking for a photographer to help with their shoot and I had a new friend, who I had previously reviewed his restaurant Cinema Winehouse for BKK Events (read the review here) refer me to the woman in charge, Sam. I had told Sam that I was just an amateur photographer and had only done street and travel photography. I had never worked in a studio before with lighting. She said that was ok! She encouraged me to give it a shot and I am so glad that she did.

I took around 1,100 photos that day and with the help of the lovely ladies at the makeup studio; I was given a lesson in shadow boxes and lighting. It was a great experience and the photos were used for the events advertising, which will take place tomorrow night.
