Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Felicia (Froglette)

“Writing a letter of appreciation is something I’ve never done before, but from now onwards, I will make it a point to write one for every Christmas because it’s so meaningful.

There are so many people in my life I want to thank. Naturally, the first people I want to thank is my family. Even though sometimes they are unreasonable, but ultimately, they just purely care for me and my wellbeing. I want to thank my parents for providing me financial support for my whole life up to the second month of internship, because that was when I got my first pay and I weaned off their money and started using my own instead. Without their support financially or mentally, I don’t think I would have been able to survive in this world. I want to thank my sister for always being a listening ear to me, giving me wise advice when I don’t know who else to turn to. She can be very annoying at times, but when she’s not, she’s a delight to be with. (I know I annoy her too.)

The next people I want to thank are my friends. They have kept me going throughout my whole poly life, made school so much more interesting, and made my life a much more enjoyable one. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today, because they all have influenced the moulding of my personality in order to deal with the harsh world.

Next, I want to thank my boyfriend for “training” me to become a less annoying person, and to have a better temper. Before I met him, my temper was atrocious. Maybe not towards my friends, but towards closer people in my life. He has taught me that not everything will go my way because people sometimes don’t meet my expectations, and I can’t flare up at them because of that.

Last but not least, I would like to thank my JFF friends for accepting me so warmly into the JFF family. When I make any mistakes, I will get corrected in a nice way. I have indeed learnt a lot from working here, and I dare say that I’m not the same person I was at the start of internship in terms of personality.”

Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Mel

“在这2014年里,我学到了很多,首先感谢我的公司给了我在农场学习和工作的机会,让我增加了许多工作的经验。其次感谢新加坡的政府给我们提供了一份就业的机会。除此之外,在即将到来的圣诞节中,祝愿大家圣诞节快乐,工作顺利。

在2015年,我会更加的认真工作,为公司做出自己的一份力,能够更好的做好自己的本职工作,为公司增加效益。并且希望我们的裕廊牛蛙场在2015年里能够越做越好,招揽更多的餐馆以及顾客的喜爱,让新加坡更多的人知道我们裕廊牛蛙场。”

Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Charlane (Frogician)

“”In the spirit of Christmas, there are many things to be thankful for. But what strikes a chord this season is the love of a family. This year my family have stood by me to help me through some tough and challenging emotional setbacks. They have become my pillar of support to be thankful for which have kept me going. Their encouragements and prayers are a comfort to my soul knowing that they will always be there for me when I am in need. Their simple actions like buying meals and sending me to work exemplifies their boundless love and care. This season, I celebrate the spirit of love with my love ones and I hope you will too.”

~ Frogician, Charlane

Words of Appreciation in the Spirit of Christmas…by Chelsea (Frog Princess)

“There are so many people whom I have to say a BIG THANK YOU to! Many who have joined us at some point in this froggie biz. Firstly Mel, who has been with us for 16 months, now, is most responsible with her backend duties and reliable as a frontline combat soldier.

Anna, who supported us in the 2nd quarter is the sunshine of the farm. I finally got married, much credits to her, Mel and Kaiting who held the fort for, most of the weekends!

Many thanks to James, the staunch supporter to JFF, who has introduced  Charlane, now our Frogician to us. I always see that childlike innocence in her especially when she flashes her signature megawatt smile. Thank you, Frogician for training my patience and reminding me constantly on the appreciation of simple pleasures! To Felicia, our Froglette, who shines as a task exterminator. She is always asking for things to do so that she can write it on and strike it off her To Do list.

To Mrs Frog, aka Mum, for preparing our meals so that we work hard knowing that there is always a warm meal waiting for us at the mid and the end of the day.

To the rest of our team of production workers and drivers! What is JFF without each and anyone of your contribution?? Much gratitude too to all our dear friends and 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,
Chelsea Wan
Frogologist of JFF ( Head)
