Bosco Wong’s Overtime Restaurant Opens in Malaysia
In recent years, many Chinese and overseas artists were interested in business opportunities in Malaysia. Last week, Bosco Wong’s (黃宗澤) restaurant, Overtime, opened in Ipoh, Malaysia. Aside from promoting for the new restaurant, Bosco took the opportunity to announce that he has ascended to become a business owner!
Although Bosco was currently filming a movie, he especially took the time to fly to Malaysia for the grand opening of his restaurant. It was apparent that he attached great importance to the restaurant, which he described as a “gift” to his mother.
Since only a simple promotional ceremony was held for Overtime, the event organizers did not publicize the event in advance. Only the restaurant’s shareholders and invited guests attended. However, Bosco’s charm can not be blocked; many people in the Ipoh area found out about the restaurant’s opening and arrived to glimpse his glorious presence.
On an earlier promotional tour in Malaysia, Bosco was left with a deep impression of the restaurant chain, Overtime. In partnership with a few friends in Malaysia, Bosco decided to invest in opening a new branch of an Overtime restaurant. Investing in Malaysia for the first time, Bosco spent a seven-figure sum to build a 8,000 square feet, bi-level restaurant, which was the largest Overtime restaurant in Malaysia.
At the launching ceremony, Bosco indicated that he possessed a long-time desire to open a restaurant in Hong Kong restaurant but was limited by the expensive rent there. The same amount of rent that he spent in Malaysia may only allow for the rental of a 300 square feet space in Hong Kong .
A Gift for His Mother
Focusing on his career in the entertainment industry, why did Bosco suddenly wish to become a business owner? Turning 31-years-old this year, Bosco, said, “As people say, a person should be established by the age of 30. I have always been active in investments, such as purchasing real estate property, gold and blue-chip stocks. Since they are considered stable investments and do not require a lot of time to take care of, I can focus on my acting career.”
The filial Bosco revealed that his my mother will soon retire and he intended to give his new Overtime restaurant as a gift to his mother, while he will visit his restaurant in Malaysia in his idle time.
