Mum, Operator of Brahman Coffee
Suburb: Hyde Park
I’m renowned for: Enjoying cheerful banter with friends and for catching a fly with chopsticks – while it was airborne!
Only a local would know… best dumplings in town are from Sun’s Dumplings. They make everything from scratch!
My most memorable holiday was… exploring Ankor Wat with my two lovely children (4 and 2.5). Watching their excitement as they explored the ancient city and interacted with the locals was an amazing journey.
Right now I wish I was… in Darwin, visiting a very good friend and her family. Her kids and mine are best friends since a few weeks old.
My favourite day is: Holiday! Yay! Travel, eat, explore, feel and see different cultures and places.
The biggest influence in my life was/is: My Dad. He showed me the importance of being my best, believing in myself and taking chances. He gave me the confidence to return to Australia seeking a career change after years working a wonderful job at a six star hotel in Hong Kong. Since that change I’ve studied some more and lived all over the country, settling in North Queensland and starting Brahman Coffee with a good friend.
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was… when the coffee truck arrived I realised I didn’t know how to drive it (I didn’t have a motorbike licence, I never dreamt of getting a motorbike!) so I had to pay a driving instructor to come around and teach me so then I could drive it.
Someone famous I met was: Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
My motto is: Pay it forward.
