A year ago, on this date, I was in Bangkok for the gems and jewellery show. This year, unfortunately, due to the immense number of projects and assignments, I cannot be there.
One of the things I miss about the show is the sheer diversity of people and products that it brings together. Although Singapore has its own gem show, it is tiny compared to the one in Thailand.
It was through that show that I started getting ideas to start my own projects in gems. I saw the possibilities and opportunities that the industry holds and how much it could improve in Singapore.
If the gemstone industry takes off in Singapore, it could be a highly lucrative one. That's what I want to work towards!
Well, even though I can't be there this time, I'd like to be around next year.
Here's to a great year ahead!
