Part 2 Background - Soup Master at Food Junction, Sembawang Shopping Centre

Managed to conduct a phone interview with Moses Chong, one of the 3 shareholders of 牛车水老火汤 (Chinatown Lao Huo Tang )

Moses loves to cook at a very young age. When he was as little as Primary Three he had already learnt to cook for himself and his 3 brothers as his parents were busy working. Being the number three in a family of four boys, Moses is the only one to venture into the F&B Business.

At age 31, he started a food business selling desserts & Chinese Snacks ( Chinese Buns, Chee Cheong Fun, etc)  at a Toa Payoh Industrial Estate Canteen which eventually closed after the tenants moved out due to slowdown in business.

Moses then ventured into Interior Design Contractor business for about 10 years.  During this period his penchant for cooking did not wane but instead grew. He participated actively in cooking classes organised by the Community Centres  and picked up tips on cooking Western Cuisine & Chinese Cuisine particularly dishes like 一品锅 (Yi Ping Guo = a claypot dish with superior grade ingredients), 三杯鸡 (San Bei Ji = Chicken cooked in three different types of wine).

Elegant, Brilliant, Industrious & Amicable Amy (Mrs Chong) with Enterprising, Business-minded, Humble & Magnanimous Moses Chong seen here at their fifth outlet opening at Food Junction, , Level 2, Sembawang Shopping Centre.
