    Default The Jollibee local partner

    Rachel Scully
    The Straits Times
    Wednesday, Apr 10, 2013

    When Ms Jennie Chua resigned as non-executive director of Ascott Residence Trust last month, citing a desire "to pursue personal interests", one might have thought she was winding down on life in the corporate world.

    After all, the veteran hotelier is 68 and a proud grandmother who cannot wait to catch her eight-year-old grandson perform at the famous Carnegie Hall in New York this week.

    But Ms Chua is not slowing down, as The Straits Times found out in an e-mail interview.

    "I don't like the word 'retired'," said Ms Chua, who remains a director at listed GuocoLeisure, a hotel and leisure group.

    Last month, Ms Chua launched restaurant chain Jollibee in Singapore.

    The fried chicken eatery, which originates from the Philippines, was involved in a minor flap after some netizens started a Facebook page calling for a consumer boycott due to what it claimed was the chain's clear preference for Filipino workers.

    A retaliatory Facebook page was quickly set up by an opposing group called Fight Xenophobia, Eat Jollibee.

    The boycott on Facebook was taken down shortly when diners ignored it and thronged Jollibee when it opened at Lucky Plaza last month.

    In her e-mail, Ms Chua took the opportunity to set things straight.

    "Seventy-nine per cent of my staff in the Jollibee outlet at Lucky Plaza are Singaporeans. The aunties, uncles and young people work very hard and when they see the business grow, they will be there for you," she said.

    Ms Chua hopes to open two more outlets here over the next 18 months.

    This is the first time in her illustrious career that Ms Chua is investing in a business.

    "I've been a corporate person all my life. I wanted to be an entrepreneur years ago... but was too timid and too safe."

    She said when she was younger, she was risk-averse and focused on building a career and raising her two children.

    "I'm going back to what I never did, that is, being an entrepreneur," said Ms Chua.

    She declined to say how much she invested in Jollibee except that she has a 40 per cent stake.

    Despite her busy schedule, she makes time for her five grandchildren.

    On Wednesday, Ms Chua will be in New York to cheer her violin-playing grandson, who is part of a school orchestral group that has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall.

    When asked about her other interests, Ms Chua said she does not dance enough.

    "I used to do it nightly until a couple of years ago. I've tried other things like taiji and gym machines but dancing is the most fun way to keep fit," she said.

    She added that she loves going on cruises and is thinking of being out at sea for one to two months.

    Ms Chua remains a frequent traveller with her overseas board appointments and her ambassador duties.

    She's a non-resident ambassador to the Slovak Republic and the ambassador-designate to Mexico.

    She also remains active on many boards including charitable ones such as the Community Chest of Singapore and Temasek Foundation.

    Elites like her have no hesitation to sell sinkapore off for a buck.

    "Seventy-nine per cent of my staff in the Jollibee outlet at Lucky Plaza are Singaporeans. The aunties, uncles and young people work very hard and when they see the business grow, they will be there for you," she said.
    So, she says that 80 percent of Jollibee's employees are sinkees ....you didn't see them on opening week. Where were they? More importantly, she mentioned that the sinkee employees were 'aunties, uncles and young people' ...that's an admission that no sinkee is in management!

    Jennie Chua is, it seems, everywhere.
    She is concurrently president and CEO of the Ascott Group; Singapore's non-resident ambassador to the Slovak Republic; chairman of the Community Chest of Singapore, the Council for Tourism, Alexandra Hospital and the Singapore Film Commission; chairman of the Raffles Hotel, and deputy chairman of the Workforce Development Agency.
    She is also a member of the Temasek Advisory Board of Temasek Holdings and of the Pro-Enterprise Panel. In all, she holds 21 directorships. She became chairman of the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce, the first woman to hold the post in the chamber's 172 year history. And that's just a partial list.
    Ex-husband is Goh Kian Chee (the son of Singapore's then Finance Minister Goh Keng Swee).

    Dr Goh Keng Swee's only child, Mr Goh Kian Chee, and Ms Jennie Chua

    I have a similar question.......... maybe of the 79% now, 78.9% true pink Singaporean employees are newly hired to damage control?

    Who cares, I will never step into Jollibee even if they offer me FREE meal, unless I am truly convinced that 99% of they staff are Singaporeans.
    List of my boycott establishments:-

    Tung Lok
    Breadtalk/Toast Box
    Jollibee
    Citibank (who employed more than 40% foreigners)
    La Fonde restuarant
    ...will add on to the blacklist as deemed necessary for patriotic reason.

    Nothing wrong with Pinoy - just that now there are too many of them flooding our small country, so have to stop this inflow

    Blame the government for being so idiotic to crowd so many people into this small island that trains are overloaded and keep breaking down

    Hospitals no bed that patients sleep on the corridors

    GoldenDragon, it was rumored that just like his father, Goh Kian Chee dumped Jennie Chua for a younger and tighter pussy. Any woman would be greatly traumatised by such an unfaithful man. Her whole outlook on men has changed. I don't fault her for flitting from relationship to relationship.

    A slut is a slut. Don't use 'emotional trauma' as an excuse.
