JPN’s “Photos of Beautiful Memories” Initiative

Celebrating Malaysia’s National Registration Day on October 1, this programme allows individuals to order a collage of their previous IC photographs.

Process and Accessibility: How to Obtain Your Own Collage

Malaysians can choose between an individual or a family set, with Hanan opting for the individual series, which he showcased in his TikTok video @hananrahman86.

Hanan’s framed collage is a testament to his personal journey, featuring his first IC photo, a snapshot from adulthood, and a third taken after losing his IC during a pilgrimage.

He learned about this opportunity from a television show and further explored it through JPN’s official Instagram page @jpnhqofficial. The process involved filling out a digital form and making an online payment, costing RM75 for an individual.

This initiative has sparked widespread admiration among Malaysians, who see it as a way to document their life journey in a single, meaningful photo collage, capturing their evolution from their first IC to the present.

And for your info, the programme has concluded, though, JPN annually offers this opportunity every October in alignment with National Registration Day. So you will have to wait until next year!

When asked for advice for others interested in creating their own IC photo collage, he said, “Some people hesitate because they feel their IC photos are unflattering. But for me, that’s the beauty of life.

You can’t undo what is done, but you can learn from it and change.”

Challenges in the creation process

When asked about any challenges faced during the process, Hanan highlighted the patience required.

“The main challenge is ‘The Time’,” he explained.

“You have to wait, sometimes up to 30 days.”
