Just a short update on the pre wedding photo shoot last Tuesday. It was great fun to pose in front of the camera with pretty clothes and makeup. Here's the prop I used for the picnic scene during the outdoor shoot. I replaced wine and food with books since the both of us were geeks in school.

Another photo is the behind the scene of me of being photographed lying on the grass pretending to be pretty, haha. I definitely enjoyed the photo shoot more than the man! Now can't wait to see the rest of the photos.

Sun Moon Lake 日月潭

Just a short post on Sun Moon Lake, the largest lake in Taiwan. The reason why it is named that is due to the shape of the lake which resembles the sun and the moon. 

Photos are mostly taken during the ferry ride between the last stop back to the first stop. The tickets were bought together with the package that comes with the bus ride throughout the lake, tickets to the aboriginal theme park and bus ride from Taichung to the lake.

Kumari, the Live Goddess

Kumari house from Durbar square
After losing my blogging mojo for the past few weeks, decided to blog something that I enjoy more; travel.

I know it's been almost a year since I visited Nepal and witnessed this event but it still remained one of the luckiest thing we encountered during the trip. Even the guide told us that it is very rare that we can see Kumari so upclose and she's out from her house at Durbar square. Each day, Kumari will appear at her window for only 1 minute and no photos are allowed. So we are very very lucky that we managed to capture her in photo while she's out from the house. According to the guide, she will only be out 3 times a year.

To those who do not know who is Kumari, basically she's a child worshiped as living goddess in Nepal. It is believed that the goddess Taleju is incarnated into young virgin girls and will leave them once they hit puberty. So there is no permanent Kumari and every time the current Kumari hit puberty, a new Kumari will be selected among young girls. So far, according to the guide, these ex Kumari girls remained unmarried.

Here's some shots I managed to get at the current Kumari.

Kumari will appear from these windows everyday for only a minute
