Evergreen Mak Waits on Tables
Often earning paltry salaries, many TVB artistes have become entrepreneurs to boost their income. Fifty-year-old actor, Evergreen Mak (麥長青), opened a cafe with his friend last year. When the cafe gets busy, Evergreen puts on an employee uniform and waits on tables.
The Bazaar Carnivals <街市遊樂團> star is known for his easily approachable personality when running into fans on the street. Evergreen maintains the same no-frills attitude when spotted at his cafe in Kowloon Bay. Although some diners recognize him as a celebrity, Evergreen did not mind and served them in a friendly and efficient manner. After delivering food to one table, he quickly ran to another to clear and wipe the table. He also learned how to make milk tea connotations and tidied the front desk.
Although he had invested a six-figure sum in the cafe, Evergreen is a hands-on owner. Realizing that the cafe still has to iron out its operations after opening doors six months ago, Evergreen is willing to work right alongside his employees.
