My photo is on Pioneer Woman

Sunday, 22 August 2010
Wow, I'm beyond thrilled that a photo of mine was chosen to be on Pioneer Woman's Love assignment's Group 5. I didn't get into the finals but wow (sorry for the double, ok, triple wow) there were well over 100,000 photos submitted for the competition. Her blog Pioneer Woman  is hugely successful. Yes, well over 10 MILLION page views per month! I'm honored to have my photo selected amongst so many talented photographers. It's a shot I took of my mom and her 4 sisters during a rare occasion when we were in the same country at the same time so it's extra special to me. A happy moment captured forever.

  2. It WAS a happy moment but it took a great deal of effort just to get them together. I hustled, harassed and threatened but we got there eventually.

  4. Thanks, Alysha!

    It is such a small world! You'd probably learned drums from Buong Hoo, my cousin's hubby. Goodness, with Sarawakians, it's 2, not 6 degree of separation! I was on a flight to Miri with L slowly going crazy with exhaustion and the lady who sat beside me offered to help. It turned out that she's a close friend of my cousin's.
