I’ve been friends with Audrey for a long time, like over ten years. Her sister Hazel and I are best buds, all of us meeting on the Internet. On Internet Relay Chat. Remember that?
We had a chatroom named #mamak21, where perhaps the hippest, most “happening” 20-somethings in Malaysia hung out. Of course, the real happening people were actually going out clubbing it up instead of sitting at home in front of a computer typing in a chatroom. Nevertheless, we felt like we were the coolest, smartest kids on the block to have found a way to hang out. And it was cheap too 🙂
Audrey and Chris invited me back to Kuala Lumpur a second time in the summer of 2010 to shoot Audrey and Chris’ weddin (the first time I’d gone back to shoot Hsian and Srihari’s wedding). We had a splendid good time (my kids were back here in the States) reminiscing on our good old IRC days and wondering about our lives going forward. How time has flown.
Thanks for the privilege, Audrey and Chris!
