A 90th Birthday Celebration

Event Photography by Chiat Hau Photography (Josephine Kong Grandma 90th Birthday)

Josephine has been approaching me for some family photo shoot as well as the event photographer for this big event of their family. I've scheduled a time to meet her up where we share stories, point of views and of course some of the things on works as well. Realizing that her hubby is used be my senior and her brother in law is in the same batch as I do in secondary school.  :"D I am not good at names where when she told me her brother in law's name. There isn't any face popping up in my mind. ~:| (BUT, We manage to recognized each other until I meet him in person on the event day).

Anyway, this is her grandmother 90th birthday and they have planned to have a celebration at their home where relatives and friends are coming back to celebrate this event. Got to know from Josephine that her grandmother has been a very strong, independent and brave lady who has sacrifice her youth just to bring up all of them. Seriously, I know that it is an not easy job to raise up so many kids in one family at that era. I believe this has been a very very meaningful event for her family.

The event has been flowing great, everybody is busying getting ready for the celebration on that day. Grandma has been very very happy where all of the friends and relatives have returned to celebrate this event with her. And also Josie's aunts do manage to do some catch up with some of the old friends that are attending the event. You could just see the joy in grandma eyes. (And somehow, she remind me of my own grandma as well...somehow) I am just touched looking all the things that are happening in front of me. :`") And also by the end of the event, there is a small dance party just right in front of the house. (How cool is that!) and not to mentioned, I am right inside of the pool moving along with the music with all of them. I am just enjoying and feeling every bits that are happening around me on that night.

  1. 使我想起我家祖母了……
    她 90 大寿时,坚持不庆祝
    要是庆祝的话,应该也是这个场面吧…… :)
    另,那位老婆婆的样子也跟我家祖母有点相像呢!
