1. What do you enjoy about the hospitality industry the most?
I enjoy interacting and serving customers. Service is the main element of hospitality. It can be the most difficult part at times, but it is also very rewarding especially when you make your customers day with the service you have provided.
2. What is your favourite food?
I love all food in general but if I had to choose it would either be from Thailand or Japan. I just love the flavours of Thailand but also sushi’s and Ramen soups.
2. What do you like doing when you are not at work?
I have a big garden so enjoy gardening a lot. I found it quite relaxing. I enjoy reading a good book and watching movies. If I had a long day, I like to watch stuff like family guy or south park.
3. What is the best vacation you took?
The Philippines. My wife is from there. It is such a beautiful country with great people, great food and beautiful landscapes and beaches. Wouldn’t mind retiring there.
