This post is way overdue and I promised the Studio representative that I will blog about how horrigible she was!
I had wanted to take the kids to take studio photos for quite some time but somehow didn’t get down to it until Sasha introduced me to this place. The studio is actually located in Desa Hartamas but they had a temporary booth at Giant Kelana Jaya during the Hari Raya break. So we initially wanted to go together-gether with AnnieQ and Oscar’s mommy but at the end only I made it.
They had an offer of RM38.00 for 4 pieces 4R photos, but come on, after all the trouble will you settle for just that 4 pieces of photo? Well, I was definitely prepared to spend more than that and I wanted 8R photos too. It was difficult to capture shots of Kylie as she couldn’t sit still and kept wandering away.
Before we actually agreed to get on with this, I asked if the photos can be ready there and then and she quickly replied yes as they had all the equipment there. After the kids were done, they quickly transfered the photos into the computer for selection. They’ve taken I think over 60+ shots and we need to select the best of the bestest of course as extra photos cost a BOMB! I repeat a BOMB! During the selection process, the girl sat so close to me and kept resting her hand on my lap! Yucks lor, and she talked to me as if she knew me from childhood days! Please la, and she was so pushy and kept insisting almost evey photo was too good to be deleted.
She nearly conned me into taking the 5R size but the price was just too steep. So I ended up with 18 shots, a CD of the photos, 2 x 8R photos and the price was voila…..RM220+. When she wanted to get me to take this and that I said I didn’t have enough cash with me, so she quickly said can pay deposit first. When she finallised the bill she asked for full payment! This was after I rejected this and that.
Me- (very angry by now..) Eh I thought u said can pay deposit?
Girl-Err..but I wrote down full payment paid wor…
Me-(WTF!!??!) Ok when can I get the photos?
Girl-Errr..you come at this date..(like 2 weeks time!)
Me-(WTF!?? )I thought can do it there and then one?? I am very unhappy about this and definitely will kutuk you guys!
Can’t make a scene as the place was very public!
So, thank goodness the rest of the gang didn’t make it so they don’t end up contributing so much cash to them and end up like so frustrated. So don’t forget this place called Studio One in Desa Hartamas, DON’T EVAR GO THERE!!!!!!!!!! The photos are not of exceptionally good quality and the photographer is so young like one young ciku student!
