SouperChef Anna’s Message | Fantastic 15 (Round 1)
My children, Isabella and Elijah, are turning 10 and 7 respectively this year. Motherhood has taught me a slew of lessons, and it’s so true how the days are long, but the years are short. Time is a marvellously mysterious thing. It’s terribly elusive – wasn’t it just a while ago that they were still pink and cherubic? I’ve learned from them, that to make the best use of time, I need to embrace the present. They are only little for so long, you know?
My journey as a mother technically started 15 years ago, when we welcomed the birth of our first The Soup Spoon outlet at Raffles City. I still get emotional as I recall clear and dear memories of the moment our doors opened, when our first customers arrived! Believe me when I say we had more staff than customers hanging out on the first few days! It wasn’t easy. The days were long. So long. I cooked, served, cleaned. I fussed over every little detail, skipped meals, stood on my legs for hours. But The Soup Spoon is my beloved child, a child born out of our love for good soups, and I will always be thankful for how it has strengthened me and given me so many reasons for thanksgiving.
And just like that, with every long day that we go through to serve soups that we love, 15 years have come to pass. We are 15! Thank you for growing with us, and we look forward to creating and celebrating more souper moments with each and every one of you! My team and I have prepared special deals that are not to be missed, spanning two months, just for you! It’s our little way of saying “Thank you!”. These two months, we are also bringing back SouperChef Specials that you have voted for. We share your love for Korean soups, so this round, it’s going to be a Korean feast of soups! Much love from me, from the world, to our kitchen, to you.
