I’ve known Prawin for quite some time already and despite his furry face, his huge and somewhat intimidating figure, he’s actually a big teddy bear. A kind and soft spoken guy, I used to wonder why he wasn’t dating anyone when I first met him.
Flash forward a couple of months later, we met up for dinner with Sherrie and a few other friends and I was happy to hear that he was seeing someone whom he met at church :) After a whirlwind courtship of a couple of months, Prawin proposed to Eileen whist they were enjoying a beautiful sunrise at one of Sabah’s most popular attractions, the peak of Mount Kinabalu.
So guess who had the honour of shooting their engagement? ;) Yes, Prawin had no choice but to pick me for I had given him an elbow lock and threatened to wax whatever facial and body hair he had. Hahaha! I kid, I kiiiid.
I only got to meet Eileen on the day of the engagement. When I arrived, she greeted me with her sweet, dimpled smile and it was apparent to me why she and Pravin are such a good match. Whenever I shoot couples like Prawin and Eileen, couples whose relationships have transcended cultural differences, who despite their differences complement each other like coffee and milk, I am gratified. Happier than usual for this shows that race really doesn’t matter.
