               I am of the belief that you do not have to be a chef to
               have a profound appreciation for the food you eat and
               love. For this year’s WGS, I want it to be not just a feast
               for the sense, but food for the intelligence. I see WGS
               not just as a platform for networking exposure but also
               as an important centre for learning and discovery.
