Portraits of Myself

It must have been my early life experience as a ballerina and Aunt Ivy’s buying off pretty dresses for me as a child. I like to have my portrait taken for some reasons and those must have been the reasons. I have a deformed left eye but I do not mind it. I have a crooked smile but I am not shy about it either. I once asked my first PA to help me take pictures of myself using my phone’s camera. She too remarked that I appeared very natural in photos without any deliberation.

Somehow, I have also been blessed with people who like to take my portraits. There was Cheryl Leong and her digi cam from my secondary school, now there is Yee Fan, a volunteer photographer who does not charge me for my vanity.

I like seeing myself in portraits no matter how imperfect. I guess that means I like my life the way it is.
