Do we really need to put hair gel on a baby to make him look good?
It depends on how much swag you want him to have. For me, it completes the look. I always had an idea of how I wanted to style his hair – see this cutie at @jetaimekyan.
But when Bubu was younger, he had “rambutan hair”. That’s how his fans describe it. Finally, he’s outgrowing it and I can work some magic with hair gel.
Have you deleted any photos that you posted?
Very few… and not of Bubu. I have this policy with regard to social media that you put up only things that you are happy to share, even with your worst enemy.
If a picture can be used against you, then don’t put it up. If you have doubts about it, why would you share it?
I’m also mindful that when he’s a teenager, his friends will say: “Oh, look at you!” So, no full nudity – the bathtub shots are always cropped nicely. And I try to put up pictures that are cute, not silly. But I guess it’s hard to resist when he’s dressed up as a watermelon!
Tell us about some myths that you’d like to debunk.
Bubu doesn’t like to be photographed. I have to chase him around like a crazy person. He doesn’t like the attention and prefers to do his own thing.
I usually shoot very fast and I don’t make him pose. I don’t set things up around him. If I don’t get the picture, that’s fine.
I don’t want to make him unhappy and cry because Mummy always has a camera in his face.
Every time I want to take his OOTD (Outfit of the Day) photo before we go out, and I can see that he just wants to leave, I’d say: “Forget it. I’ll take it when we’re out.” It’s important that he enjoys it. It should be fun for both of us.
