I am Eric, from a country full of cultural characteristics, Malaysia. I used to be a student reporter and a member of a choir. Through music and off-campus activities, I became more independent. That’s one of the reasons, that after graduating from high school, I decided to go abroad to study alone. Taiwan is my first country to go abroad, and I am curious about this place. In the past, I could only see everything in Taiwan through TV. I didn’t understand how to write my own life story until I really stepped into this land.
When I was 18, I came to Yuanlin, Changhua, and opened my first goal in life, which is to experience a different life. I am a person who likes to constantly challenge myself, I believe that only by trying can I truly make the right choice. I still remember one morning of a summer break in Taiwan, I suddenly challenge myself by searching one of my Taiwanese friend’s house, remembering that one night, a classmate from Taiwan once rode a motorcycle and took me to his home. I gave myself a goal this morning. I must find his home by a day. So I borrowed the bicycle from the dormitory and started a day trip. I circled the alleys in the countryside, relying on my impression of the rush at night, and walked around countless alleys during the day. Keeping a lot of sweat, I kept searching from morning to evening, my body was getting exhausted. Just when I was about to give up, I passed a familiar alley, I stopped my bicycle and walked in. The house I have been looking for is here, this is an unforgettable moment in my life. I took this scene with his mobile phone and turned around and left. This experience surprised me very much, I was almost wasted by the idea of giving up and wasted my whole day’s efforts. Fortunately, my heart has not given up so that I can finish the day at the last moment. The goal, it turns out that miracles will really happen.
I graduated from Chung Chou University of Science and Technology in the Department of Culinary Arts. I have a Level C license for professional western food, bakery, and Chinese pasta processing. I also represented the university for an internship in a hotel in Bangkok for two months in summer break. Through the resources of the university, I have not only improved I have a lot of memories of my own cooking skills, especially during my internship in Thailand, I really understand how important it is to have a worldview vision. I am currently working in Din Tai Fung Food and Beverage Group as a catering service specialist. In fact, serving guests is not only a responsibility but also a way to accumulate stories. Every day, I face different guests, even guests from different cultures from different countries. A day’s work is a learning and a story for me. I like to record life. Through painting, photography, and music, I also got awards for singing and photography in college. After graduating, I also began to learn painting and started my own painting life, so in addition to work, I left many works on the free land of Taiwan. Learning to enhance the value of my life has become daily life. I feel that life is like a storybook, we never know what the ending of this storybook will be, but we can decide how this storybook will continue to develop.
