​"Most people think that hospital kitchens only provide meals for patients. But our kitchen does more than that. We cater for staff and other special events that happen within the hospital as well. For example, the hospital celebrates festivals like Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, Deepavali and Christmas too. During these occasions, I have the opportunity to experiment and create pastries that complement the festive meals prepared for hospital events, and are also suitable for patients on therapeutic diets with different diet consistencies.

I am proud to be part of the CGH family, caring for patients and my fellow colleagues through the pastries that I bake. The hospital is also very supportive of personal upgrading and continuous learning, and I appreciate the opportunities given to me to further my studies and develop my skills."
