An alumnus of the Anglo-Chinese School and Raffles Institution, Terence’s other business interests includes the restaurant “Momma Kong’s” (tabbed by Lonely Planet to have Singapore’s “best chilli crab”) and the bistro “3O1 Bar & Kitchen” (which he owns together with the popular actor and incorrigible good guy Pierre Png).
