The cheongsam is a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress for women. It is known in Mandarin Chinese as the qípáo (旗袍) and is also known in English as a mandarin gown. The stylish and often tight-fitting cheongsam or qipao (chipao) that is most often associated with today was created in the 1920s in Shanghai and was made fashionable by socialites and upperclass women.
In a nutshell. Anyway, managed to revisit the cheongsam with the lovely Miss Reina. The rest will follow suit.
The bridge. See, when we were shooting, it was in the middle of the day. And it was hot. Really hot. Like, sun over our heads hot. You can even see it in some of the shots. So, we limited ourselves to mostly staying under the China House, or some shaded area.
Now, the bridge had no shade. And every time we went to the bridge, the clouds parted, casting direct sunlight, and harsh shadows. And it was hot. Bloody hot.
This shot, was taken when it was cloudy (for a minute or two). Hell, we practically ran to the bridge to take this shot.
