A DARK TRADE SECRET

How we love to think that work is work, the fact is it’s not!

My humble years in the food & beverage industry opened my eyes to so many “interesting” stuff!

Back in the good’o school days, we were taught how professionalism is like, they painted a beautiful picture of the trade. Today, i see people who are shrewd, screwing themselves up and backstabbing their fellow trade professionals into deep “shit”. Is this how the way we improve?

The food & Beverage industry in Singapore is already facing manpower shortage, increase in overheads and lack of proper training, and yet, the people are just hitting themselves head to head.

Today, i had an opportunity to sit with a couple of restaurant and cafe owners, we had a long chat, a long chat about the trade. It’s sad to hear how some people can go to such extreme extend to try and ruin another’s rice bowl. I mean c’mon, what does that make you?

The trade is so small, we all just come across one another every other day, be it tasting, cupping, whatever… we all started out with one thing. PASSION!

Well, i reckon this is not surprising for many, but one thing i believe in till date….

“DO NOT RUIN YOUR OWN REPUTATION, FOR THE TRADE IS JUST SO SMALL IN SINGAPORE”
