Anna’s Initiative: Marinated Frog Meat

JFF had been quite busy for the past few weekends and we have a lot of customers ordering for our Deep Fried Frog Meat.

So How This Idea Came About?:

When I was preparing the customers dish, I realized that there was quite a number of people kept looking at the container of marinated frog meat, slowly the questions came in..
Questions Such as:
‘ What are the ingredients inside’
‘how long have it had been marinated’
‘what kind of flour we are using’

At that point of time, I still have not though of selling the uncooked marinated frog meat until one day when I was doing my report, I realized that there has been a lot of customer requesting for the marinated frog meat or even asking me to help them marinate. Not only that, when I brought up the products that we have for example our fresh frog legs, the answers I got was that they are either do not know how to cook or they do not know how to marinate. Hence I brought up this idea to my supervisors and so we make things work.

*Anything can happen, as long as I move one step forward. 🙂

Marinated Frog Meat is now available at JFF as requested by a lot of our customers.

Ending a Splendid 2013 with 3 teeth yanked out and a revelation!

20131231-121454.jpg
Got a revelation when I had my wisdom teeth extracted before X’mas this year. It wasn’t about the process of the extraction. It’s the trepidation that you will be getting 3 of your biggest teeth yanked out by a person whom you had only met briefly prior to the surgery. The last thing I was told before I entered the clinic was, ‘Dear, remember this. You are always scared but you always do it.’ The words of my fiancé.

He is right. Even in 2006, I decided to walk into JFF knowing full well that this is going to an extremely slimy business. And I have to admit. It’s ain’t easy. Many challenges I have faced then, I’m still trying to grapple with them now.

Even up till last week, I was telling my customers I’m not the boss la. I’m working for my father. Simply put, all I wanted to do when I decided to join this company was to help my father and make things better and perhaps easier for him!

I realized that my aspirations then have been clouded by the challenges in this second generation business. The short land leases, old school employees, working methods and processes, even the very location of this farm which made it hard for hiring. Day to day activities became fire fighting!

What are my aspirations?
I wanted JFF to be part of every child’s learning journey; not only to learn about the magical world of American bullfrogs but also to know of this part of Singapore’s agriculture history that JFF has grew in the name of progress and prosperity in Singapore. In another words, I wanted JFF to be well known. I wanted my father’s hard work into building Singapore’s only frog farm to be known to all Singaporeans through their children.

Now growing up with frogs, it was generally assumed that I must be a good swimmer. But I’m not. I only know basic strokes and to stay afloat by lying on my back. Yet, I have rafted 40 km down Zambezi River, floated along with crocodiles basking in the sun. In this picture, the raft has turned turtle and i’ve already been thrown into the meciless choppy water.

Plunged into the Devils Pool on top of Victoria Falls.

For land adventures, I have also trekked up fox glacier in New Zealand,

20131231-121855.jpg
climbed up Table Mountain (3563 ft) through the Skeleton Gorge (a amazing albeit gruelling 5.5 hrs of trotting, rock climbing, hiking, trudging!)

20131231-122052.jpg
I have also trekked up Mount Ophir this year; Walk barefooted in rivers to hunt for caves and dive down sand dunes in Vietnam. Who would say no to a good adventure!!

Each of these activities, i have walked in with trepidation, yet walking out feeling victorious. In short, now with 3 teeth lesser, I’m going to face 2014 with even greater courage and now taking more ownership to reach out to more people about the existence of this farm and its heritage.

The next time you see me in JFF, I’m going to tell you I’m heading the department of Frogologists. (:

Enjoy the remaining hours of 2013 and lets’ all face 2014 with grit and make next year truly an adventure of a lifetime!!

p.s. obviously there is a hint of Mitty in this post! Watch the movie and be as inspired!;)

Best,

JFF celebrates 32nd birthday with special-needs kids from Lighthouse School

JFF celebrates 32nd birthday with special-needs kids from Lighthouse School

JFF turned 32-years old yesterday and celebrated its birthday together with about 30 special-needs children on a sponsored tour. These first-time visitors are from Lighthouse School – a school providing special education to children with visual impairment, hearing impairment or autism.

These children, aged between 7 to 17 years old, were accompanied by their teachers on their learning journey to JFF. Teachers used various means, such as sign language for the hearing-impaired children, and guiding the visually-impaired children by hand to touch the frogs at the farm.

The children were given a short introduction to the life-cycle of frogs, and told about physical differences between male and female frogs. Some courageous children even held the American bull-frogs in their hands, while some shied away. They then got to feed the frogs in the pens, and toured the farm together with their teachers.

JFF sponsored a two-way transport and guided tour for these special kids to mark their anniversary, as part of our ongoing efforts towards building an inclusive society.

Conducting a tour for children with mixed abilities is not without challenges, but the farm guides learnt more about accommodating differences.

Having seen how excited the children were and having received the positive feedback on the experience from the teachers, JFF aims to repeat a sponsorship like this next year. In general, it is important to give more opportunities to people with special needs to integrate into the working world and community at large. With that purpose in mind, JFF has hired a staff who is visually-impaired to work at their farm, and he will be starting work next week.

“This is a refreshing break away from the routines at our school. The children need more outdoors hands-on experiences like this to bring to life what they’ve studied in books. Going out to public places also gives them opportunities to practice social skills such as exhibiting appropriate behaviour, being thankful to hosts, sharing food among friends, etc. We hope to make more tours like this possible with the support of our corporate partners like JFF.,” commented Mr Danesh Kandasamy, teacher for ICT (Info-Comms Technology) at Lighthouse School.

JFF @ World Food Festival 2013!

Hey there, JFF Friends!

Over a period of 4 days at Singapore Expo for the World Food Festival 2013, the JFF Team has concluded that it was a resounding success, in many ways more than one. It is also the start of new friendships made with neighboring booths and that it was an incredible learning journey for us!
