Vulcan Digest: Roger&Sons, F&B Startup Tips, Inspirational M'sians Of 2014 And More

Editor’s Note:

Hello, readers! It’s already the month of December! It’s the time of year to look back at your new year resolutions and either sigh in disappointment, or pat yourself on the back for a job well done. We do hope it’s the latter and not the former. We have some really exciting plans for this month so keep an eye out 😉

In Singapore, we covered a heartwarming piece that is bound to inspire you, meet this young Singaporean who rebuilds his late father’s company with his family to keep the father’s legacy going. Also, a founder of another local startup wins a competition by Ben & Jerry’s and gets an ice cream named after them! In the Singaporean F&B scene, drones may be serving food to diners in the near future, here’s why we are looking forward to that.

The F&B scene in Malaysia is a dynamic one, with new businesses popping up and closing down rather frequently. Before you leave your current day job to start your own restaurant or cafe, you should check out these helpful tips from F&B startup founders so your business thrives and you don’t get burnt. We are pleased to announce that we have started a weekly series in collaboration with Malaysia’s TallyPress, first in the series are these 10 interesting startups from Malaysia as voted by the public.

As we are nearing the end of the year, we’ve compiled a list of inspirational Malaysians who have gained fame through social media in 2014, and another list of Malaysians who have unfortunately left the country and are not looking back (inspired by Marina Mahathir’s request for Malaysian youths who leave the country to not forget about Malaysia in their hearts). Also, did you know that these 8 celebrities actually have Malaysian blood running in their veins?
