The cafe began to feel like her only real home.
The best of her talent is being put to use, and it’s not just about culinary perfection. Organisational tasks from procurement to serving and cleaning up, sales management, manpower planning, book-keeping, managing a decent profit margin and ploughing back a part of the profits in business – she happens to be the sole decision-maker.
She smiles when an ex-colleague who has dropped in for a quick bite says,
“You look so radiant. Women are made for the kitchen. That corporate cubicle was not for you..”
(They’ll never learn…)
