ClubMed Kani – Maldives

Hi guys, this is finally Raymond updating. Its been quite a while yes i know but things have been pretty crazy lately and eveyone seems to be killing and rushing me for photos after photos. My only spare time probably should be when i am shitting (or lack of). Haha. Updating this entry with stuff i shot over at Maldives IN JULY(until now then update) with our Miss Singapore Universe 2009 Winner, Rachel Kum as well as one of Taiwan’s leading model Russell Tang. This was done on behalf of Clubmed Kani in Malé, Maldives, and boy did i enjoy myself you ask? OBVIOUSLY! haha!

Somehow i have no idea how come the Bollywood theme came about. Wahaha. Must be the jet lag! (excuses) Oh and there is this bag of roses at the left hand side of the room. Over looked it until i came back home. LOL.

Look at how much rose petals we wasted. Their pillow fight ends up with plenty of roses instead of feathers. Haha.

Thinking about it now, i think i should just scrap the flower idea and just get the couple shot. Duh!

We were heading out on a sunset cruise and because the beaches are shallow, we have to take the smaller ferry (above) and “transit” to the bigger yatches (below) where we had awesome finger food and sipped champagne.

Clubmed has free flow alcohol & food so guys who try to use the usual pick up line of buying drinks for the ladies don’t really work well here. Lol!

The place is so nice and romantic that i think all married couples should go! The place speaks of FUN too if you are into water activities. A pity 1 out of 3 days was raining while we are there hence we didnt get any water sports shots. 🙁

And then i saw it! Was walking along the bridge and peek down into the waters. It was pitch dark but there was this light shining into the water and i guess the stingray was attracted to it and lurk around for quite some time. Guess its feeding time for him! Nice!
