Dear Wine Lover
Have you heard of this saying?
我 吃 盐 多 过 你 吃 飯
“I have eaten salt more than you have taken rice”
This was my Mum’s rebuke whenever I ignore her advice on how to raise my daughter.
It’s an irony as each time I try to explain to my team about my decisions (preference on the selection of music, the seats layout, the food presentation, etc), this phrase always comes to mind.
Nevermind that my nickname is now Empress Dowager! My next project is to spruce up the outlets at Woods & Dempsey. If you are at Woods, look out for mussaenda and the cherub over the birdbath – I’m proud to say it is all DIY work. I am enjoying the fruit of my labour watching the injection of pink & white against the backdrop of different hues and saturations of green. Just a few days ago, we spotted a Hornbill. One of the regular customers joked that it flew from Jurong Bird Park – it will be our special guest if it chooses to settle in the Woods.
Whatever taste and selection you have, my desire to show you the best drives me to do what I would have done for my family and loved ones.
