“I’m pretty keen on history. I like the Hung Kings,” he says of the kings who ruled Vietnam from 2879 BC. “I’ve memorised all their names. But if I could live in any time, I would want to live under Ho Chi Minh. That would be an honour.”

“The customer is god, so anything they want, we’ll do. The most stressful part of my job is when the customer comes in to see the product. But I learn a lot every time.
