ho ngoc ha asia song festival 2009

So the picture they chose of Ho Ngoc Ha is certainly not hideous, or bad at all, ……but really? Of all the pictures out there, you’d think they’d try a little harder with their picture selections. Or at least picked one that’s not so reminiscent of the 80’s/90’s (blame it on me being an art student…I tend to get a little  anal about pictures sometimes 😉 )
