Twenty Five Years of Friendship

I met up with my friends whom I know for twenty five years the other day and I took this opportunity to photograph them. There is this wonderful feelings that they never grow old since the day I met them.

They still can be as naughty as the time when we were in the classroom together.

When Ah Beth asked me: "How do I look in the photo?" It took me only a second to answer: "A caring mother!"

I knew from her facial expression that she was not pleased by my answer, but that was my thought after seeing her through my lens.

Well, at least she is a caring mother to a lovely daughter!

Sarah is a self-acclaimed babe, but I always like to tease her that she is an old babe! But honestly, she is as beautiful as twenty five years ago.

She even wanted a car babe shot, so I did this for her.

It was not an easy task finding the good angles as she was very demanding, wanting me to make her look at least ten years younger!

I told her jokingly that I need to do very heavy post processing work for that, but I didn't.

When I put Ah Beth and Sarah together, they became such natural posers.

Susan on the other hand was a bit timid, so I only took one shot of her.

All three of them were the Charlie's Angels in our class twenty five years ago. I wonder whether Charlie is going to recruit them back or not.

After twenty five years, I can still talk to them like when we were in the classroom together. I think it is going to be the same for another round or two of twenty five years. I really treasure their friendship.

The State-of-the-art in Morning Business

Going to the toilet in the morning is probably the business that more than half of the world population do. The other one-tenth may go at different time of the day or on alternate days. Those in constipation may go once in a week.

I am quite surprised to know that there is still 40% of the world's population lacking the access to toilets according to a report by CNN. These people are mainly on the continent of Africa.


In Japan, the work of doing the morning business has been uplifted to a higher pleasure level. Almost everything is automatic at a push of a button, except the disposal of the bodily wastes part, of course. Some of them even have a proximity sensor that operates the toilet seat cover, that is, it will open the seat for you once you are approaching!


Some of the toilet systems even come with a touch screen and a hi-fi system! Sooner or later, they are going to add an LCD TV with a Blue-ray disc player to the package. By then, I think most of the Japanese people are going to spend more time in the toilet than in the living room.


In the showroom, you are definitely going to come across one toilet system that suits your habit of doing the morning business. If you are in doubt, you can always ask the toilet expert there.


If you can't make a decision right there and then, you can always pick up a brochure at the counter and go back and sit on your existing toilet seat to think it over. I am sure you will be inspired!


In your primary school days, I am sure your teacher had taught you that you must wash your hand after going to toilet. So, choosing a good tap for that purpose is also an important part to build you morning business chamber.


As for me, I am the type who likes to go straight for a shower after closing a deal in the morning business.


We will then go to the kitchen to stock up again for the business tomorrow. There is no way we can get out of the cycle!
