“When I am feeling weak at work or lack confidence in a situation, I pray in my heart and gradually I feel I am strengthened.”


Wai Lam WONG

Origin - Hong Kong


As a result of his families financial circumstance, Mr. Wai Lam Wong dropped out of school. Right after his third year in secondary school he started working in various restaurants as an apprentice. Later on by chance he came and worked in the UK, with the intention of earning a better income to support his family. He stayed in the UK and extended his visa, and eventually he decided to bring his family over, making England his second home. Having worked in the restaurants since his teenagehood, Wong has an impressive inside knowledge of restaurant operations. Much the same as many Chinese immigrants back then, Wong was addicted to gambling. He conquered the addiction and has a deep understanding of gambling addiction.
