“After starting my first shift in myBurgerLab, I’d just wait for the hours to pass by after waking up just to look forward
to go to work. That’s how much it meant to me. I also believe that if you want to have fun, there’s
always a little bit of hard work required and afterwards, the fun is all yours to have.”

Q: How did you find out about myBurgerLab?
After I finished Form 6, my sister and I decided to swing by myBurgerLab for a meal. While I was there, we saw that they were still hiring. Still having another job at the time, I didn’t think much of it, until my sister jokingly told me I should apply so I could get some of them awesome burgers everyday. A few months later, i decided it would be interesting to try out a new industry, and hopefully learn many new things and experience a whole lot more by stepping out of my comfort zone. I sent in my application, walked into the lab for my first part time shift, and never looked back after that. Fast forward a few years, and I’ve worked myself up to the store manager position. Sure, there were challenges along the way, but the experiences I’ve had at lab, as well as the friends I’ve made, I definitely wouldn’t trade for anything.

Q: What is the one thing you treasure the most?
I have a note that was passed to me during Form 6. I left high school on a butter mote, my friends turned their back on me, I felt alone. And then, in Form 6, one of the girls who gave me a tough time in the previous years, passed me a little note she wrote for me. I won’t delve to deep into the contents of the note, but it definitely boosted my spirits, and gave me a more positive outlook on life in general. Up till today, I keep the very same note with me. Whenever I feel lost, or down, I take the note out and read it, to remind myself to persevere, and that I can get through even the toughest times.

Q: What is one thing you’re most proud of?
I think the achievements you don’t expect are the ones that I’m most proud of. I volunteered to be the dorm leader, as well as the assistant class monitor during my stint in National Service. To my surprise, upon the completion of the program, I was given a certificate to acknowledge my achievements and contributions by the teachers. So i feel like sometimes life isn’t just about fighting tooth and nail all the time. Sometimes, it’s important to let life take it’s course, flow along with it, and you’ll achieve things you didn’t know you could.

Chloe loves travelling, whether it be long distances or just short drives to anywhere. She feels like the essence of travelling is best appreciated in the amount of time spent to get from a destination to another. To her, the best part of travelling falls back to the long road trips and what gets done when time flows with motion. She adores the moments shared with someone through road trips and accepts that these moments cannot be replaced and recreated but in fact, has to be enjoyed and remembered in the present.
