Ya loh, when I saw the purple field, all I could think of was "beautiful" and "Mistipurple". Didn't see her there though, she was probably hiding in the purple field like you said. Hehehe

btw, that white dress is the dress I was going to lend you as an angel outfit. Hehehehe

Haha! Yeah, you noticed also eh? I only realised it no long ago, after Rick got into photography. Hehehehe

Ya loh, I didn't know about that place when you were here. Otherwise can go there together.

me too me too! *high 5* I love flower field, be it lavenders, sunflowers, tulips or bed of other flowers. Just love it! Sunflower field is on my top list but still no luck finding it here.

Happy penang-ing!

Hello Misha! You like lavender too? They're beautiful and I love their smell. (^_^)

Hello Doreen, my compliments to the photographer. Rick?
Those are reaalt exceptional photographs, well taken, and the portraits of you, simply amazing. I love to look at such photographs.
Hey, thats a cute pair of pink shoes you wearing. casuals?
I love the 1st pic of you. THAT is really a beautiful shot, real candid.
But Doreen, its your pure, gentle and lovely features and beauty that enhanced the photos...a loose dress blown by the breeze, a carefree lady in love running thru a field of dreams, a photographers fantasy.
Keep that smile, Doreen and have a wonderful New Year. My very best regards to you and Rick. Lee.

So pretty, so cute, so beautiful!
New Zealand looks so mysterious to me...i love it!

Doreen said...

Aiya, lucky I had my sport tight underneath my dress otherwise I would have given my "teh koh"'s colour away to Misti. *Phew*

Hi Lee! Thank you for such a sweet comments. Hehehe yeah, it was a casual, carefree day out. The 1st pic is my favourite too actually. (^_^) You have a very joyful and happy new year too.

I take you mean the lavenders? No, didn't take any but I did buy a lavender moisturiser made from those lavenders from them. Very nice product!

Hehehe, purple colour is very nice. I found myself gradually falling in love with this colour.

Taiwanese drama actress? Wah~~~thank u thank u. No lah no lah, paiseh paiseh! *blushed* I would be thankful if I have their 50% loh.

Thanks ler. I think it's the purple that makes the whole picture very surreal. It is such a beautiful colour!

zen chef:
New Zealand is beautiful, so as everyone claims. It's really worth a visit!

so you are a chef?

rinnah said...

The scenery is certainly beautiful! I wish I am there to smell the lavender scent, see the fields and sky!

But more beautiful than the place itself is the lady in the photos and the skill of the photographer to capture her beauty. *smile*

mistipurple said...

hahaha. saw your teh kor's color. no? that was the sport tights ah? haiyah. excited for nothing. thot i could announce to the world already. hohohoho. :P

Doreen said...

Heheh thanks leh *blushed*

The scenery is undoubtly beautiful. NZ is really worth a visit and a perfect place to unwind your soul!

Eh, changed back to Mistipurple liao? Where is my goldiamandrich liao? Hehehe

Haiya, I knew there would be something fishy about the purple field one, so deliberately wear sport tights. Hahaha

Wah~~ still hohoho-ing ar? Very long liao leh. hehehe
