Gerik in Perak, Malaysia - is not going to slow down
anytime soon. With so many projects in the pipeline,
Tan is busy building his own empire and getting more
people to notice his talent in the modelling industry.
He was spotted back in 2009 by an agent while he was
working as a chemical engineer in one of the local firms
in Kuala Lumpur.
His career in modelling kick started right after
representing Malaysia and winning four medals in
the modelling category at World Championship of
Performing Arts ( WCOPA ) in Hollywood, Los Angeles
in 2009. He went on to win The Best AsiaModel Awards
/ Model Top Star Award at the 6th Asia Model Festival
Awards 2011, which were held in Seoul, Korea. He then
won several international and local modeling awards
like Malaysia Best Model Of The Year for Mercedes
