Welcome to the official blog of Jan Shim Photography
incorporated 27th April 2006
Jan Shim is a Brunei Darussalam based freelance professional photographer since 2004 with a growing portfolio in international travel, tourism and published images in various local and regional magazines. Backing this career change is 13 years of sales, marketing and operations in the IT industry having frequently travelled parts of Asia for courses and conferences. Today, my work takes me to places I had never dreamt of and I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to work with Brunei Tourism, Singapore Tourism Board and Tourism Malaysia.
That’s me on the right in traditional Malay costume receiving the eagerly anticipated Brunei Citizenship certificate from YB Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Hj Awang Badaruddin, the Minister of Home Affairs on 25 January 2011.
“Thank you for sharing. Good luck with the Citizenship exam results. I am very confident that you will get it this time. As a Brunei PR, you have been most inspiring for a lot of Bruneians. I am one of them. Having read the article on you, I have nothing but full of admiration and you have put me to shame as a father of two kids for I felt that I have not spent enough time with my family. Keep up the good work and take care!” — Aron W.
“Wow! So well written and inspiring! I, too, wish with all my heart that you will be one of us (Brunei citizens) soon.” — DN.
