Photo shoots and Flooding
October 26, 2011
The past few weeks have been hectic and suspenseful. Hectic because I’ve been practically living at a photo studio here in Bangkok, starting shoots as early as 7 am and finishing 11 hours later. Suspenseful because of flood warnings and the expectation that Bangkok will soon be immobilized under up to a meter of water.
Ok, first about the photo shoots. I have been working so much lately, which is great! I have two big campaigns coming out by the end of this year – BSC and Caring. Recently, BSC appointed me as their brand ambassador to promote their lines of cosmetics, swimwear, lingerie, clothes, home décor, shoes and bags! Last week, I shot their BSC Cosmetology ad for TV commercial. It was a two-day shoot and it was a blast! I had 4 looks: Paris, Rome, London and New York, and I had to pretend being a giant walking around those cities with a green screen background.
My other campaign that’ll launch before the end of the year is for Caring Hair Expert. They have a range of hair products such as color, treatment, and styling products. I had a photo shoot for their print ad with different hairstyles.
My latest photo shoot was very exciting; it was for my own perfume line! The name of the perfume is still a secret but it will be revealed very soon. The style was very classy, timeless and beautiful. Keep checking my website for news of the release.
Now, on to the flood situation. My heart goes out to all those affected by the flooding. I’ve seen photos of people’s homes and historical landmarks/temples under water; people and animals stranded without food and water; loose crocodiles swimming around. The problem is, that there’s not much anyone can do to help them now except to wait for the water to recede. In order to land a hand, I’ve donated a large box of clothes for those affected. I hope this situation gets better soon, and that more people won’t be affected. The worst part is waiting for what’s going to happen and not really knowing what to expect. The news report that Bangkok could get flooded any day this week, and it could be as deep as one meter! Whatever happens, I’m certain Thai people will get through this with a smile on their face, as they are so known for. Be strong Thailand, this too shall pass.
I remember how my grandfather would always advocate cold showers when I was a little girl. He was a big believer that cold water was the key to healthy body and strong mind, and even when it was playtime in water or bath-time for me
The result of weeks of hard work is now starting to be seen with the newly launched BSC Cosmetology ad for 2012. The video commercial that is now playing on all major
It’s that time of the year again – the time I very much look forward to because that’s when Bangkok gets a taste of world-class international culture of music and dance.
No look is complete without a splash of color on your face. This is where a blush and bronzer come in. Putting on blush and bronzer is my favorite part of the whole makeup routine!
