Today, one of my senior staff in my shipping company resigned. She reported to me for the past 3.5 years as quality audit executive. However, due to her husband’s job transfer, she have to move back to Lumut. During the farewell, she cried and hug everyone in my Japan Team and even my assistance manager was crying and when my staff turn over to me, they don’t understand why I never cry and not even any tear in my eyes..well, I did, for 3 seconds..being shipping manager for more than 10 years, I seen staff come and go, my close workmate resign and join other companies. To be frank, I never cry, not even during my own resignation on a company which I work for more than 6 years. okok, may be a tear drop or two. So, now my question to myself, am i dead inside? am I iron-man as what my HR manager told me just now?

I am not, I am just a guy who never good in expressing my feeling and let it out. I always keep things inside me…that is just me…a Pisces man.

For Gee, the staff who resign today, I wish you all the best for your future and a happy family life, I am glad you are with us for the past few years, helping us go thru the hard time and good time in Japan Team. Eventhough I never say it in front of all the staff, I truly think you are an excellent staff. All the Best!

    Heya Edwin!
    Sorry to hear your staff quit but your HR Manager is quite wrong to say you’re an iron-man; we had a great time having you around at Indulgence and I think if he/she saw you that they, he/she would not have said what was was. Cheer up and keep doing what you do best; being you! Cheers!

About Edwin Tan


Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
