therefore able to work for him was a great learning experience. Hanoi F&B was first in AM100 and

was in tight of a schedule. Renovation works were pulled to a halt and I had to source from my own

network to complete the works and within the time frame. After the inspection from the respective

departments, I had to interview the entire crew from the front to the back and the kitchen proved to be

the most difficult, due to the vent hood, stainless steel and layout. I am blessed with my network of

people to put a complete kitchen into passing the stringent inspection of the relevant agencies. Hiring

process included training as I was in the service industry in the United States, so I could pass on the

service standard skills on. After the restaurant was fully operational, attention tuned to the after sales

To think outside the box and read between lines make me different with a


marketing approach.

I possess exceptionally strong interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills. Apart from

English and Mandarin, I am able to converse in Hokkien and Cantonese. With regards to the IT Skills,

I am very adept with the use of Macromedia, and have also been operating on the Microsoft Office

platform for the past 10 years, with respect to my career and academics. Aside from the

abovementioned, I have undergone substantial training from previous mentors and superiors in my

previous employments to be able to conclude that given the responsibilities, it would be an innate

motion to execute immediate and future tasks without undermining all the objectives required. This

can be attributed to the leadership positions I have been undertaking throughout my national service

and also from my past working experiences. Apart from that, a strong sense of responsibility and

professionalism has been imbued into me, and working in fast-paced and dynamic environments

allows me to thrive, and thus does not stifle my creativity.

Personal Information

Personally, I am a very comfortable character with regards to interpersonal relationships. This is my

forte and I thrive in such environments. Besides guarding my clients interests closely and

professionally, I am also exceptionally attentive to details. Ensuring effectiveness on all fronts allows

me to excel with any team that is assigned to me and in any matter, vice versa. That is crucial in order

to avoid any resolution of time-consuming discrepancies on the tasks at hand. My passion is to

develop a brand, or in fact, any product to its utmost potential and possibly beyond. On top of that, it

would be a great joy to share this success with the people who have actually participated in this

positive outcome. I understand the importance of being a team player, but similarly, I strive to be

independent in any matter and not pose any sort of burden to the people around me. I pride myself

with the fact that my previous employment experience has inculcated several beneficial values and I

endear myself to these values. These values include patience and humility; and it is evident that these

two traits are vitally useful in the context of interpersonal relationships.
