Yu En is having another round of audition for her acceptance to NAFA (Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts) Gifted Young Pianists Course tomorrow. Hope she makes it through. Her father has been preparing her for the past few months. She is expected to play a solo piece on the piano, sing a song and identify/read notes. The last time she failed one of the items as she had stage fright and did not dare to sing in front of the tester. It'll be good if she gets enrolled in NAFA as she'll learn much more than in yamaha. However, on the other hand I am afraid she cannot take the stress. At this moment, I am praying hard!
I had long wanted a family portrait taken since Yu Chen was born. So when I saw the promotion by U-foto on the singaporemothehood website. I decided to grab the chance. The package is $120 with one hour of unlimited shots. We reached there early as I anticipate the kids need to warm up a bit before the shoot. Yu Chen was still sleeping when we reached the studio so the photographer, Benjamin, decided to take Yu En's photo 1st. The session went well except Yu Chen refused to smile for the camera, acting so cool. Benjamin had a hard time trying to make him smile, he had to hi5 with him and then 'go stan' to take the picture when Yu Chen smiled after the hi5. I even had to resort to tickle him when taking picture with him. A few shots to share:
