The 3 of us have something in common. Kenny, Grace and I. Of course, the fact that Grace’s name is Grace, scores like, 100 points with me. All Graces are cool. :)
But no, Kenny’s middle name is not Grace. The common ground we all share is the fact that each of us worked at the same place at one point in our lives. Many years ago, when I was a freelance video editor, I was based in a company called Edit House, and that was where I met Kenny for the first time. My first impression of him was that he was a really friendly and chatty guy. After my 2 month job ended, I left and we didn’t really keep in touch after that. Some time later, Grace joined the same company and that’s where they both met.
Sometime this year, I got a call from Kenny, and surprisingly I still had his number stored there! We chatted and he told me about his wedding and wanting to do a pre-wedding photo shoot – sorta gothic style, sorta street grungy and yet silly. When I met Grace for the first time, I thought…wow, they seem sooooo different! She came across as this sweet, gentle girl who spoke softly. Opposites attract?
But then again, as the shoot progressed, I realized she also had this funky and silly streak in her that matched Kenny’s. :)
Quick change of clothes and we headed to the streets of KL!
By the way, there is a little story behind the image below (bottom right)… after I posed Kenny and Grace, crossed the busy road to take this photo from afar… a guy walked to the wall behind Grace and started peeing against the wall (it was a few steps below but we could still see half his body). We waited for at least 1 minute and he didn’t move. He must have drank a lot of water that morning! So I had to reframe my shot while he was peeing behind Grace… and took the shot below instead.
Kenny and Grace, all the best for the wedding! It was great catching up with you, Kenny and getting to know you, Grace. May you have lots of fun adventures together in the future!
