Bill Ho’s life as a chef began by accident. He studied graphic design at Saito University College in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, but was waiting tables at a Chinese restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, working his way up from waiter to manager. One day, when the kitchen was short on staff, he picked up an apron to lend a hand, and discovered that cooking delicious food for customers was something he enjoyed. Since then, he has trained and worked as a chef in bars and restaurants, including the Royal Copenhagen Tea Lounge in Singapore. Armed with several years of experience in the food industry, and a passion for creating fusion fare, Bill opened Eight Café and Bar in 2008. He continues to develop dishes for its menu and lends a personal touch to the café’s décor with his sketches and paintings.
