Recently, I was honoured to be given a wonderful speaking opportunity as part of the 2018 Mrs. Singapore & Classic Mrs. Singapore Pageant Press Conference and Talent Showcase and Mini Carnival, held in conjunction with Down Syndrome Association (DSA), at One KM Mall. There, I was invited to share my experience as both a Mrs. and Mummy and how I manage my business role as a mother to make life work together. It was truly special, as this year marks the 20th edition of the Mrs Singapore pageant.
Since the pageant is co-organised by Exclusive Resources Marketing Pte Ltd (ERM) and the Down Syndrome Association (DSA), which makes this year’s pageant all the more meaningful. The event consisted of back-to-back activities and performances by the Mrs. Singapore & Classic Mrs. Singapore 2018 finalist, a fashion show by our reigning Queens, a cooking demonstration by Mayer, as well as, a performance by the children of DSA.
Welcoming applicants from ages 25 to 44 for the Mrs. Singapore category, and ages 45 and above for the Classic Mrs. Singapore category, this is the only married woman contest to give wonderful and remarkable women an opportunity to represent Singapore! I really appreciate how this pageant gives a very meaningful and valuable platform to empower women of today to not only take on the role as a wife and as a mother, but also to embrace and manage them well, while taking on other roles in life.
It felt like it was just yesterday when babyC came into our lives, and now she is all grown up! Every second, every minute that we share together is a gift we cherish deeply. Each photograph of hers is a timeless memory, a moment perfectly preserved in time. After sharing about her first birthday shoot with Fion Boon Photography, I just wanted to spend some time to recollect the experience of babyC’s first ever two-week photoshoot.
Look at that tiny bundle of love, our joy, our hope.
Fion, whose expertise lies in baby photography and newborn photoshoots, had wonderfully captured babyC’s two-week moments. She has been mentored by top photographers in newborn photography during her time in Melbourne. Now that she’s back in Singapore, she has set-up a photography service that specialises in baby photography shoots.
In the blink of an eye, our dearest babyC has turned one. Recollecting how we documented this special journey, I can’t help but think back on our baby’s first photoshoot experience with Fion Boon Photography.
We had actually shot with Fion when babyC was just 2 weeks old and I had really loved the simplicity and ingenuity of the photos. Now that babyC has turned one, we’re back again to capture her precious first year moments!
Having recently moved back to Singapore from Melbourne, Fion specialises in photographing babies around six to fourteen days old and has even been mentored by Melbourne’s top newborn photographers! I really appreciate Fion’s dedication and attention to detail as she plans with us and conceptualises the overall look of the shoot for us, ensuring that the entire preparation process went really smoothly.
How time flies! It is the start of a brand new year and I just wanted to spend some time documenting my pregnancy photoshoot journey with Honeyzpainthouse.
I was blessed with a pretty easy time for the memorable nine months, with the luxury of time to take a good shower, put on day / night skincare and even indulge on hair pampering sessions. Ooo… those were the good ol’ days.
