“After nearly four years in Bangkok, I have gained insights into this region's thriving businesses, particularly in retail, branding, culinary and lifestyle ventures,” said Ng, a Malaysian now based in Thailand.
“This experience has ignited countless ideas to enhance lifestyle experiences back in my beloved Malaysia," he added.
“This time, we are taking it a step further by inviting six master chefs, including Michelin-starred culinary virtuosos, to showcase their talents.”
According to Ng, Sushi Summit transcends the realm of a mere meal; it represents a celebration of culinary artistry.
