Just some random thoughts…

Another night reached home late. Thousands of photos waiting for editing since I came back from recent Europe prewedding trip while I am busy running here and there especially this entire week….

Two weeks Company business trip in Seoul, Korea this coming December which need my preparation to kick start soon,team manpower arrangement, interviewing replacement staff, rushing for team year end target achievement and last check, Dad admitted hospital for kidney removal surgery,visiting him after work daily and lunch time, handling housing loan application for new house, retrieving all relevant documents, communicating with bankers via phones and emails, all these are coming in all at once…..

At hospital, looking at my dad while he was asleep after the operation on Monday, at the age of 63, the trace of life appearing all over his face and leave down all the marks…..he is getting older each day.. and I am still unable to provide him a worried free retirement life….he still need to work on his business for family monthly expenses.. carrying boxes of books and delivery himself to all his clients … what am I doing? as eldest son in the family, I fail… I fail to let my parent enjoying their retirement life, I fail to let them worry free on family issues…. that is why, no matter how, I must purchase the landed property and get my loan application approved, to fulfill one of my parent wishes since the day they forced to sell their house years back………,

all of the sudden, I miss my childhood where all we need to worried is study hard and play hard…world was that simple…yes, world was that simple in my childhood…

On my desktop now, preparing for another official posting on a recent pregnancy photo session and trash the dress session in Taiping while came across this photo..a photo taken during trash the dress session in Taiping . I dont know how you will see this photos… but to me, it tells me, there is hope at the end of the path. .. well, think no further, waste no time….night still young, time to resume my photos editing……Lets do it!

    Hi Edwin,

    Don’t think so much and I am sure everything will be fine. Hope your daddy get well soon. I totally understand how you feel and what you need to go through as I believe most of the eldest in the family would take the responsibilities of the family.

    All the best to the eldest daughter too!!

    Cheer up my friend and you are doing well now! Never give up!

    i believe that 船到橋頭自然直, or just like what you’ve mentioned in the post, there will be hope at the end of the path. when God closes one of your doors, he’ll open a new window for you.

    take care, and stay strong!

    How are you?

    Hope that everyting will get smooth to you very soon and please don’t worry too much. I think you family members are noticed your achievement mostly in heart but not in mouth. So, be cheer up. At this moment, I think you need to be happy rather that sad because everything is good from your side such as dad operation is successful, gonna move into a new landed house, got so much projects in hand…

    So, dont woory, be happy.

    Take care,
    Tit Kun

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 ...
