I know...long time no write... Been very busy as everyone who lives in Hong Kong is, and have also made a few trips up to China for some work. China, as usual, had its ups and downs. Although I can honestly say this time it had more ups than downs.
So, do you think this is an up or down? First stop, Shanghai. Yes my hair is half curly, and half straight. Ummm, yes, feathers too. Other than the "interesting" hairdo, this turned out to be a pretty nice show. It's always nice to walk on a nice long runway with good music, and this show had all that. Also, got to stay in a super shwanky hotel which is always a bonus for us models, as, contrary to popular belief, more times then not we are put up in "business man" hotels. Let's just say that there are always an interesting array of unidentifiable stains on the rugs and comforters.
Then, after returning to Hong Kong for a week, I was back in China shooting an Olay commercial. Guangzhou to be exact. Amazing how much this city is changing. Everytime I go back I am baffled by the number of brand new high rises there are. Guangzhou is booming! Anyways, didn't do much other than work. Besides, somehow struck gold and somehow got to stay ANOTHER shwanky hotel. Woo-Hoo! Two trips in a row! And I'm a bit of a hotel room whore... Yes, I am guilty of loving hotels. I love to order room service, watch TV in an obnoxiously large bed, and take full advantage of the free amenities such as tiny size shampoo and conditioner.
Anyways... here are some photos of the shoot for Olay...
Myself, the director, Jun, and hair stylist, Kenji.
The makeup artist, Ayda.
A peek at the "real" behind the scenes. Pristine, white, shiny, plastic on the right side. And on the other side of the wall is dirty chaos. Metaphorically speaking...no I'm just kidding! Just thought it was a cool photo.
In order to achieve a perfect, calm, comfortable looking photo you have to pose in the most awkward and uncomfortable poses. How do ya like the converse? Tres Chic! All the neck and shoulder pain was well worth it, the final product is beautiful. You all will just have to wait and see that when the campaign comes out...
