those days with game console

Last night, pick up console xbox360 again and once I stick on it, it is like a magic glue which last me for a couple of hours. Come to think of it, it was more than a year since I touch on any game consoles. I like games a lot.

Still remember the first game I played was those classic game pad with monochrome colour..I was 5-6 years old with all those famous games like Donkey Kong, Pac Man.. later on when I was studying in primary school, I went to my friend’s house for Atari ‘s game during the weekend…I never own any game console nor PC until I was in secondary school, form 3 with nitendo, those days, the game cartridge is huge with some favorite games like mario brother, battle city, chip’s n dale, 1942… oh also worth mentioning are those PC games.. The first PC games I ever played is Karateka at my friend’s house lol.. then it was Taipan, a very classic monochrome PC games for trading.. then the colour PC version game of Test Drive. Yes, those were the days where PC only come with 1 MB HDD, monitor with only 256 colours.. hahahah but I do enjoy all those moments…

When I can afford my own PC and game console, PS1, PS2, Xbox360, those games started coming into my storage like Romance of 3 kingdoms, Ghost Recon, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, GT, GTA, Fatal Frame, Need for Speed, Gear of War, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur & etc. At one time, those games discs fully occupied all my cabinets and my time. Then this also recall another story.. story where I went for interview as marketing manager for one of the local online game company.. hahaha yes, it is.. I think I was one of the final 2 for the management to decide with 3 interview within 2 days. Well, too bad, they never employ me hahahaha.. I remember the CEO ask me one question, why do you think people like to play games? especially online games? I cant answer.. because I am one of them and I cant see myself why…later on, he gave an answer which I think is very true…he said:

“Online gamers is trying to get their fantasy in the virtual world, a world where they can be what they want, a hero, warrior, sorceress, police enforcement, powerful evil, kungfu fighter, military soldiers.. it is all up to your imagination, away from their real life..”

well, this is very true, however, it is also important not to be addicted to it and lose yourself in the virtual world .. dont forget your family and friends around you (who dont play games together with you)…it can release some of your real world stresses but can never take over the real world from you…

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 ...
