I did a graduation photo shoot at Universal Bridal Studio. I didn't want to initially because firstly it's a waste of money, secondly my graduation doesn't feel so special to me and lastly, there's really a lack of walls to hang the photo up. The only potential wall in my house is occupied by a puzzle piece in a frame. Furthermore, it's quite dark at that area so the photo frame won't look so nice there. However, dad thinks that this is my grandma's wish so I obliged. Just about that time, UBS was having a roadshow at Junction 8. We signed a package at $1088. The package includes an album of 16 photos, a large framed photo, two table top 8R photos and soft copies. We would be provided with 5 sets of formal evening wear and makeup would be done for the females. My grandparents could also join in but their outfits will not be provided. Sounds pretty good a deal, so we got it before I officially got my last semester's results. After I was confirmed a graduate, I booked a date with them. Met up with the grands before we head down to Kovan Mrt together. From the Mrt, you can walk a short distance to the place. It's quite a small place and the photo shoot was held upstairs. We have been there before the actual day to choose our gowns but actually their choices are quite limited. The studio is really smaller than I expected and there's a corner for the makeup artist to style our image. Now here's the irritating part. 8 of us were up there and 7 of us were just waiting around as only 1 makeup artist was present. My mummy did her makeup and hair first while everyone just stared into the air . . There were 3 women waiting for their makeup and hairdo and it was the most boring wait ever. It's very unprofessional of them to only have 1 person there to do both the makeup and the hairstyle. The least they could do is to have one person do the make up and one person do the hair. If there's a lack of manpower at 12pm (the time they open their shop), they should schedule a later time. The mood went down just by waiting. Furthermore, I think I could do better with my makeup coverage but the makeup artist said it would be ugly if I'm too covered up. (FIY, ampoules and fake eyelashes cost $20 each)
