Processed by Koo Chia Meng

I told Boo to look at the camera: un-smiling and smiling. I decided to snap on the latter.
The photograph is the perennial existence of an instant. Alfian smiled in this one.
Kelvin stared uncomfortably into the lens as I took time to focus. How did they ever sculpt such a perfect face?
He got used to the camera. But I also said, "Do whatever. I don't like posed shots."
We bonded over a luncheon in Hong Lim Square. No names, no numbers, just a photograph and a bowl of hot cuttlefish ball soup.
