What you immediately notice about Yong Mei Ling and her sister, is their camaraderie, closeness and peppy, full of spunk nature.
That’s why their daytime jobs—the older Yong as director for English Hotbreads, Sambal Chilli and Lemon Daisy Cakes and her baby sister Yong Mei Fong, manager of transaction advisory services at Ernst & Young—leave us stumped.
The sisters (who are each other’s best friends) are easygoing, always up for a challenge and most courteous, all vital traits they picked up from father Dato’ Kevin Yong, the managing director of English Hotbreads and the man responsible for turning the company from a bakery into a thriving catering business serving the hospitality and airline industry.
“My father is an amazing entrepreneur,” enthuses 29-year-old Mei Ling with great admiration. “Some of his staff members have been with him for 30 years and he operates with a lot of integrity. He’s a man who really sticks to his words.”
