What is Ting Hun? In Chinese, this symbolizes that both families formally accepts their new son/daughter-in-law into the family. In Filipino traditions, it’s called “The Pamamanhikan”. Chinese Engagements involve a lot of rituals before the groom meets the bride.Traditionally, a Ting Hun is done at the girl's residence but most couples and families nowadays opt to just do this at the restaurant to make it more convenient for both sides.

CYNDI LAUPER Live in Manila held last March 17, 2012 at Araneta Coliseum.
Seeing this kaleidoscope-haired, über-funky Cyndi Lauper who snagged multiple coveted music awards has been nominated for 14 Grammys (she’s won six), two American Music Awards, seven American Video Awards, and 18 MTV Awards is really a night to remember. I still remember how she belted those classic songs that rocked Araneta. I used to see her on MTV and those memorable lines in "We are the world" but that night I was so privileged to experience and see her live for the very last time. According to Vernon Go -Managing Director of Pulp this is the 1st and the last time Cyndi will performed here in Manila.
As a Concert Photographer I have a job to accomplish but that night I should say i preferred to sit and just watch this Iconic Music Soul serenade the crowd. Sometimes music can transport you to the past and remember the good old days. But in some ways I have this instinct that this rare event needs an ultimate documentation so I used the music to frame and captured her amazing performance that night and you can see this in this Narrative Avp.
You could grab my body of work for this concert in print, just look for Pulp Magazine - May 2012 Issue.
Also PULP Live World’s Happee Sy and hardcore Cyndi Lauper fanatic Warren Sun also recount the successful concert that was Cyndi Lauper Live in Manila.
