Photogenic

I was asked to put up a photo of myself along with some scribbling of who I think I am in the newsletter. Actually I asked the same thing from all of them and conveniently omit myself out. Small fish maaa. But they didn't think it's fair..to them at least.

Now the trouble is, there are not so many pictures of myself since I am the one with camera most of the time. The one I have is usually badly taken like the kids took it when I am sleeping with mouth wide open for instance. So I used the standard passport photo that I used for all the IDs here.

So Mr. Drive Fast (who is also the MAQ's secretary), upon looking at it said, "Ni gambar zaman bila pulak ni? Tak acilah letak gambar masa muda-muda!" (What! Teenage photo?)

Hmm as much as I like to take it as a compliment, but you know there is this subliminal message behind the compliment don't you think? It is saying that in reality I look old! That I don't look as young as the photo suggests.

Baahhhhhhh.

If people tell you that you are photogenic, don't be too happy about that either. It is also saying that only when captured at certain angle under good lighting, only can you look good. Face to face..you are really pathetic.

Unless of course you are in some beauty pageant for instance. Then perhaps you want to be Ms. (or Mr. for that matter)Photogenic.

Or perhaps not...if you really think about it.

mungkin aku patut remain anonymous with this association also. supaya mereka tak terkexut bila tengok the real me. I think also I will put my real picture. the angelina lollie picture tu.

take things positively.There's always good and bad impression on having teenage look. When u r with big client u want to look old as it project maturity and wisdom, (until u begin to talk, then only they know how good u are) when u are among ur classmates,definitely looking young is a BIG compliment.
he..he..

and this is why i hate to have my pictures taken. first, i believe that the camera is sucking up my 9 lives, second, i always manage to look fatter and uglier in pictures, and third, i feel stupid grinning ferociously to a metal box. oh well, as long i hold the family's camera(s) hostage, i will be just fine!

Lollies said...
