Melrose: Hi Sir Vince!
Sir Vince: You are now the head of Pan Pacific and Park Royale Service Suites here in Singapore. It’s a mouthful. So how did you climb the corporate ladder?
Melrose: I actually graduated with a degree of Psychology, so basically I worked in the hospitality industry for the past 18 years. Basically, it takes a lot of passion. And at the same time, I am really very committed.

Melrose: Bahala ka na, di ba?
Sir Vince: So thank you very much Ms. Melrose, I really, really learned a lot from this conversation with you. So mabuhay po kayo!
Melrose: Thank you, Sir Vince. Good knowing you as well.
