Tapau Please #013: Seasonality and how we, in Singapore, would eat according to weather and annual festivals

October 25, 2020

For our 13th episode of 'Tapau Please' of SethLui.com, we pose a question we don't often think about, especially when living in Singapore—how would we have to change the way we eat if Singapore were to have four seasons?

Given our current climate—literally—it's an opportune time to think about how temperature and climate change, in general, can affect how we consume different produce throughout the year and how our eating habits or diets change. We even touched on how we, in Singapore, perceive seasons in our own way—with fruits and cultural festivals.

Tapau Please #012: Zat & Wani break down the debate of separating scandal from the food business

October 18, 2020

In our 12th episode of 'Tapau Please', things get a lil' more serious as our co-hosts address notorious headline makers in recent times, particularly in the F&B industry. This conversation is sparked by the latest scandal to hit the news when Beef Bro's co-founder, Norvan Tan, was charged with sexual assault.

When it comes to F&B brand owners and founders being charged for a crime, or even when food is mishandled and tens of patrons fall severely ill—or even worse, die—is there hope for business to recover? Should other long-time patrons still support the business?

Tapau Please #009: Arguable aspects of a dining experience and how the pandemic has shifted our service expectations

September 27, 2020

Hello, 'Tapau Please' listeners, we're just one episode away from our tenth, and in this episode, our SethLui.com co-hosts, Zat & Wani, touch on various components of what can potentially make or break a dining experience and how our current pandemic has changed the way we expect and view service when dining out.

We're proud of this episode because it highlights the importance of keeping safe during these trying times, but we also hope to instil a compassionate approach to dining. As we know, the F&B industry is barely dusting itself off from the effects of COVID-19, and we know it would serve the hardworking staff as well as other patrons if we all try to be kinder and mindful when eating out.
