One of the craziest things I've ever done so far, since I became a fashion blogger, was doing a photo shoot at the middle of the road, in front of the traffic light, like this. I, and the three photographers from Sneak Peektures, whom I would always like to call them as "The Three Musketeers", had a quick discussion in the car before the shoot. So many locations were suggested: an overhead bridge, a beautiful garden, or even abandoned houses, but my mind was only thinking of one place: the street. As the well-structured bag in a vibrant hue reminded me of the city color and landscape, with many skyscrapers, I wanted to connect these four objects together, and to bring their ideal relationship to life. After driving around the city, passing by so many streets, we decided to have our photos taken at the financial district- Shenton Way.

It was, indeed, a very spontaneous, fun, and intense photo shoot.

We waited for the traffic light to turn red, and quickly ran to our position, in the middle of the road, in front of many cars stopping. While I focused on posing for the camera, my Three Musketeers started snapping their shutter away to capture as many photos as possible within 15 seconds. At the very last second, we ran back to the pavement before the cars could run over us, and waited for the light to turn red again. After running back and forth, under the hot sun, for 4 consecutive times, we finally had the photo we wanted. I couldn't be happier to see how beautiful the actual photos turned out compared to the ones in my own imagination.

It took a lot of courage for me to stand there, not worrying that all the curious eyes in public were on me, and accidents could possibly happen. But it took even a lot more Passion for me to come up with this crazy idea. Hard work paid off! 

Life is short. If there was ever a moment for me to follow my Passion to do crazy things that matter to me the most, that moment had to be when I stopped the traffic in my cobalt blue dress, with Phillip Lim.

Thank you so much for reading
