A Sluggy Farewell for Wei Yang

(You can’t really tell we’re catching up with overdue blog posts here, can you? )

11 May was our mini renovation day (more on that laterz). In our trademark DIY style we spent the whole day, er, DIY-ing our little shoppe. After that, it was time to partayyy. Actually it was a farrrrewell partayyy for our dear Wei Yang Slug.

Wei Yang joined us some time last year & soon became a much loved Slug to both our customers and fellow Slugs alike. What we really love about Wei Yang is his spirit and enthusiasm for the F&B industry. In short, I dare say he is the perfect waitstaff.

That’s Wei Yang, sitting next to “the girl”. (Her name is Simin by the way, our newest Slug!)

We were, however, very happy when Wei Yang told us he’s leaving TGS to join an airline company as a flight attendant. Why were we happy? Because it means he is a genuine service-oriented person, and that the energy & excellent service he provided during his time with us was 100% genuine and from the heart. (Did I just use the word ‘genuine’ twice? K, nvm.)

So the next time you’re flying “domestic” (whatever that means in Singapore), you might just see Wei Yang’s friendly face again 🙂

On to the partayyy. We went to this bistro somewhere to celebrate Wei Yang.

There wuz beer.
Beer.

And there wuz beer-induced conversations.

This’s the Pinoy equivalent of “lu kwa simi”.
