E: Describe your typical day in a sentence.

A: I start by checking my emails & BEOs. I then look over my “to-do” list and get started on the tasks that have my top priority. Most of my morning I oversee the kitchen preparations and operations. In the afternoon, I start to work on the administration aspects of my job. From market list, menus, to training plan. By the end of the day, I need to ensure the kitchen is well-managed and organised for the following day’s operation.

E: How did you come to be a chef at The Langham, Jakarta?

A: Working at a pre-opening hotel has always been of interest to me. My experience, skills and passion match the vision of the hotel and I hope I can contribute to the success of The Langham, Jakarta.

E: What’s the favourite part of your job?

A: My favourite part is to visualise and create a concept based on guests’ requests so I can craft a menu that is up to their expectations.

E: How do you unwind?

A: Spending time with my family in Bali when we take a little break from my daily routine. I also enjoy bike riding and hanging out with friends who have common interests and hobbies.

E: Name one really special thing about your hotel.

A: Everything about The Langham, Jakarta is special to me, but I highly recommend the diversity of its F&B offerings, they are perfect for any kind of occasion.
