YUMSENG…!!! is a blog that aims to celebrate food and drink in all its diversity, and it has evolved from YUMSENG.com, a Singapore based, non-commercial wine information website, which was launched on Lunar New Year, 5th February 2000.
Topics covered may include articles on food, beverages of all sorts, cuisine, food & wine matching, cooking, recipes, and possibly, restaurant and bar reviews.
Daniel Chia is the founder of YUMSENG.com.
He is currently a full-time Master’s student at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy.
Just before returning to his studies, he was a Lecturer at a Institute of Higher Education in Singapore, where he taught Food & Beverage subjects.
He also had stints as an adjunct faculty member at the local campuses of two foreign universities based in Singapore. There, he taught undergraduates the fundamentals of food & beverage operations and wine studies.
Daniel was in the habit of writing PowerPoint slides and lecture notes, which could sometimes reach thousands of slides for each subject…
He will now attempt to continue writing for this blog, and if he finds the time, he may just do the same as he does for his lecture notes, and write thousands of articles…
In his previous life, he has managed restaurants, bars, and, hotel wine & beverage programs, both in Singapore and overseas, in addition to selling and marketing wines & spirits as an importer and a retailer.
His current hobbies are, eating, drinking, cooking, photography and fiddling with IT.
And because he drinks, he does not drive, so don’t be surprised if, one day, you bump into him on the bus or train…
