Say Cheese!

We had our management team photoshoot last Friday at the Crowne Plaza. So I parked my colorful, cheerful suits for a day for an all-black number, went to the salon to have my hair and nails done (okay, okay, nails can't be seen in the shoot...but what the heck, I want a buff ok?) and applied more than my usual make-up.

The individual shots went smoothly, at least for some of us who are so used to 'shoots'... It was hilarious though, watching my colleagues try so darn hard to have a natural "toothpaste commercial' smile which they have to carry for at least 15 poses! We were like fashion models for a day!

The fun part was during the group shots - of course with the GM. During the last shot where all employees of the soon-to-open hotel was about to be taken, I almost fell off the stairs when he started giving instructions to the photographer and reshuffed all of us. I thought he wants to arrange us according to height, or department or ...hmmm..skin color???

What all the others didn't know was in between the loud commands, GM whispered to the photog:

"Put all the ugly girls and boys at the back"
"Focus your shots on those wearing uniforms, all the others, they are just....people!"

Hahaha! Good thing I was placed in front... Duh! All I can say is...Cheese!
