Auntie Pee Chin: Aiyoh….why you look so serious? Must smile more. You both look so miserable.
Me (impatiently): We are trying to get 1930s type photos where people don’t smile one!
Auntie Pee Chin observes the shoot suspiciously, then comforts herself: “Aiyah, at least the dirt doesn’t show up on the photo.”
The result: A kiam pah image that will tempt any Ah Beng to bash us up.
Obviously, this does not make it to the reception table display either.
