In the area of work experience, Melvin’s background is mainly in the hospitality and food & beverage sector. He has worked at restaurants such as ThaiExpress, New York New York, and McCafe; and in order to widen his working experience, he had also worked at the Resorts World Sentosa- Universal Studios Singapore as a Sales Associate. Determined to excel in the hospitality sector, Melvin committed one year to learn the ins-and-outs of hotel management and completed his internship at the luxurious 5-Stars Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
During his free time, Melvin enjoys spending time with his loved ones and engages in his favourite pastime of playing the guitar and drums. If you have seen Melvin on the big screens before, that is because he also loves acting in small roles. In fact, Melvin has acted in a few television productions that were shown on the long-gone KidsCentral, Channel 5 and also in movie productions such as the recent Ah Boys to Men. Melvin’s aspiration is to achieve financial freedom before the age of 30 and to startup his own business by 2016. He hopes to inspire the youth community and as such, he dedicates a portion of his time to conduct leadership workshops for Students.
Last but not the least, Melvin loves Taiwan so much that he travels there every year; hence, it is no surprise why Melvin started a comprehensive Taiwan Travelouge on A Winsome Life to share about his experiences in Taiwan.
