Meet our lovely Customer Service & e-Commerce Executive Janet Leung…
Q: You’re a real foodie, tell us about some of your favourite spots.
A: I am not a foodie, I just love eating, haha… I appreciate food more specially after having spent 8 years in school in the States. You know…high school and college dorm food were not the most delicious food. Hong Kong is such a food paradise and dining out becomes part of my life.
My favorite spot for a nice dinner is 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana. Bombana is famous for their truffle dishes but what I recommend are their cocktails and Waygu steak. My favorite dim sum restaurant is Victoria City in Causeway Bay, they have the best abalone sauce chicken feet.
I believe the secret ingredient to a good meal is who you’re eating with. I find it most enjoyable and comfortable eating at home with my family on Sunday nights.
Q: Before wine you were into?
A: Before wine, I was into fashion. I started off as a PR assistant at a luxury fashion brand and then moved into fashion marketing and e-commerce at boutique-sized companies. Mandy told me she was planning to launch an online store for WMA and I thought it would be a great experience to work for a cool wine shop.
Q: How are you keeping up your wine knowledge?
A: I started appreciating wine not long ago actually, half a year or so. It was just for fun and I started taking wine intro classes. I really enjoyed it. Wine knowledge is very practical when I dine out and socialize with friends. I took WSET 1 and 2 and will be doing Level 3 soon. I cannot wait to learn and taste more wine. Also, my colleague Jerry, who is our fine wine specialist and sommelier, comes in handy. He sits next to me at the office and I go to him whenever I have questions.
Q: What do yo hope to bring to G+C?
A: I am usually the first one who pick up the phone if you call us. I hope to bring pleasant experiences when customers first contact us from the beginning. We try to fulfill our customers’ requests and do the best we can. With my PR and e-commerce experience, I hope to bring good customer service to our customers, and further develop our e-comm site.
