While still an editor, Tan used to cycle from his home in Bukit Batok to his office in Paya Lebar which is 18 kilometers away. Tan always wanted to stop for a while and enjoy the scenery or just take pictures. But he was always in a hurry because he had to come to the office on time.

When he became a food delivery man, Tan’s dream came true. Tan admits that he has more time to walk slowly and enjoy the scenery around him. Tan became even more concerned about environmental conservation after having had a lot of time enjoying the surrounding scenery.
