Lights! Camera! Action!

We had a special weekend for lil monster the previous week! Cos you know why? We took him for a casting session!

Oooh! It was the first time for both us, parents, and the lil one. We had no idea what to expect or was expected to even do!

When we arrived, there were about 5 other toddlers awaiting their turn. Thankfully,the toddlers were all very friendly to each other and there was no screaming & crying or fighting for toys *happy smile*. So this made lil monster more comfortable and blended in well but most of the time, my lil one would pick a toy (balls is his favourite!) and play by himself or with his daddy.

We had to wait for more than an hour before it was lil one's turn. I brought along his favourite drum cum deejay machine which Aunty Allison has bought it for him during her last trip home. He loves it and plays it & dances to it every night at home - but he did not do so here *slap forehead*.

I tried to make him smile (a laugh would have been tough) and tried playing games & balls and some little racing cars in the casting room - which worked out OK but not fantastic. Finally he was asked to drink from a baby cup and my monster must have been dead thirsty - he gobbled up all the water in that baby cup given to him - hahaha! And the photographer had taken some pretty good shots, he said. That's good - hehehe.

The mommy & daddy came out of the casting room - exhausted - as both of us had to work extra hard to make him smile, laugh, play, and make sure he did not throw tantrums!

Overall, I think he did ok although he could have done better. I am not sure if he will be selected for this particular commercial shoot (that will last 3 days - OMG!) but at least they have his profile in their photobank and hopefully, he will have a chance someday to appear in (any) commercial *praying now* hee... hee.

I should mention a special thanks to Mummy Yiau who was kind enough to share this opportunity with us - thanks Karen! Wishing both of us luck!
