Black Sesame Ice Lollies
I've truly understand the difficulty of taking pictures of ice lollies in Singapore weather. Not that I'm not aware of the fact that ice melts faster in hot weather, but to see the ice lollies melt before my eyes even before I've taken a satisfactory shot was horrifying. Even setting up the props before taking the ice lollies out of the fridge did not help. I was sweating profusely during the picture taking session, and I guess it was mainly caused by stress rather than the hot weather!
