Margaret How and Arne Becker, the two guys behind the scenes.
Margaret, born and raised in Malaysia, she enjoys Nasi Lemak and Milo panas (panas is hot in Malay) for breakfast (she doesn’t have them very often though). Margaret has a spark of creativity mostly everyday – which gets us to a quite long list of ideas already, haha.
She believes in quality over quantity and the Chinese attitude of “Chabuduo” 差不多 (“close enough”)* drives her up the wall. She enjoys movies, almost all genres besides horror. “The Sixth Sense” (1999), where the little boy whispered “I see dead people” is fine for her though. She doesn’t have ONE favourite movie and “Nuovo Cinema Paradiso” (1988 - yeah even older) brought tears to her eyes. Margaret bakes to destress – maybe that´s why we get cake only occasionally :-D
* Note: Curious about how “Chabuduo, close enough” could affect our everyday lives? Read this article: “What Chinese Corner Cutting Reveals About Modernity” by James Palmer.
Arne is a German and lives in Malaysia since 2013 (with many more years to come ;-) For breakfast, he loves his bread, ham & cheese, and a Nasi Lemak or Chinese bun just as much. You can tick most boxes as far as German stereotypes go, haha - being direct, disciplined and making “effectiveness & efficiency” the name of the game. He would prefer red wine over beer and motorsport over football. Arne is a fan of Vin Diesel and guess what, sport – as in fitness training that is. Arne bakes his own bread (yup, German recipe of course) and a morning without coffee and bread is… :-/
