His Life before F&B Director @ Holiday Inn Resort

Phuketindex.com had an exclusive talk with Sakka Veeraporn, Director of Food and Beverage of Holiday Inn Resort, Phuket.

Actually I was born in Bangkok and I was pretty refractory (he smiled). After I did not success  in art, I then learned hotel management at Siam Business school. During studying, I had to do an internship at Asia hotel in Pattaya, as waiter, I really enjoyed it and my colleagues also gave me a lot of knowledge – maybe this was the great motivation for me in food and beverages. When I finished internship, I went back to Bangkok and worked at Sheraton hotel (Surawong road) for a while. After that, I moved to Phuket and I decided to take courses at AUA Language Center because I wanted to speak English fluently. I always practiced English by talking with foreigners at Dusit Thani Laguna hotel for one year. You know what? It was very useful !
In the past, it was very difficult to learn something, we had to steal someone’s knowledge or books. But at this moment, we can find information via computer – just click on mouse and then there will be a lot of information display on monitor. And right now most people rarely concern about knowledge, because of it was found very easily – it is not a good idea.

Talking about Phuket:
Nowadays, we order fishes from suppliers which is not a same way in the past  but I do accept this method because it is very easy, but there is no management in investment and government’s policy can not organize the rapidly grow in establishment, for instance, hotel chains, real estate etc. I really ensure that our natural resources will be decreased by invasion and traffic jam will probably occur in shortly.

Favorite food and drinks:
I just give you an idea for having food, there are two types of having meals. Firstly is responsibility, like food tasting, wine tasting and another is having meal for nourishment. Furthermore, friends are very  important factors creating environment gets better – it does not depend on location.
I really recommend fish menu for you because it has more benefits like Omega – 3 fatty accids and fish is a good source of protein and does not have the high saturated fat that fatty meat products do and there are variousness of fish menus, just put butter sauce and lemon on it. Delicious !!

Suggestion to next generation:
I think everybody should have honesty in person. I always adhere in four principles virtuous existence for supervision employees and  I always seek new knowledge for developing in my work. I sometimes was invited to be a lecturer in university – it’s a great experience.
