I Wanna Be Asian

Soo...
I wanna be asian...just for a day...ok... maybe a season!
Why? They just look so cool. Well, the young hip ones..lol
Did I just say hip? OK. Moving on.

A few weeks ago I blogged about the Fashion trends at the concluded SFN conference in San Diego (Click Here to Read)... But there was one fashion photo I forgot to add.

After my presentation, I hopped on the nearest shuttle and was whisked away to the airport. The Airport was the absolute worst and the Texas Cheese fries I ordered at the bar made my stomach quiver. I mean, I had only eaten 1/4 before my stomach slapped me....

I digress...

...After buying peppermint water to soothe the battle going on int the depths of my digestive tract, another hour passed and finally, my plane called for boarders. At the time, I was editing pictures for a previous blog but I didn't mind the interruption. I was in line all of 5mins when I noticed a random guy sitting against the metal column waiting to board. He was on his laptop and I can safely assume from his head sway, listening to music with a pretty heavy beat. This guy was just perfect i.e. what he was wearing. His look was put together without really trying. Judging by the poster canister next to him, I noted that he also attended the SFN Conference i.e. He is a scientist. Cool. The back drop of the airport made the look work even more..double cool. Did I mention He was Asian....WAY COOL. I had to Capture the moment. I'm pretty good at taking unsuspecting shoots so this was a no brainer...
How does someone make sitting in an airport look cool?...lol
Like he just happened to be in the perfect position, with the perfect outfit...*Rolls eyes with envy*


Ok I may sound a tad nerdy at this point but let's take it up a notch...

You maybe wondering WHY this came up now?! Well, a few days ago I watched "Scott Pilgrim vs The World", and I must say...the movie was AWESOME. It had a japanese comic book vibe to it. and well..it was just....

Here's the Trailer....


As I was saying...
There was a character in the movie called Chao Knives...Scott Pilgrim's Asian highschool girlfriend...for the better part of the movie she was rather dorky but then, halfway in, she had a slight wardrobe change and a hair cut. I thought to myself...She looks kinda cool now. this thought stayed with me for the rest of the movie. At the end she turned to scott and said "....Im to cool for you" lmao...
Agh!!!
I almost died...

I wanna be Asian now....
But Who am I kidding... I'm Nigerian...
and I love every minute of it...why change now?!
