The training and support has not only helped my skills in pursuit of executing the Ritual flawlessly but also as a bartender: A perfectly poured Stella Artois in a Chalice is a thing of beauty.

Meanwhile as for the final challenge, this is just a start; there are more preparation works to be done for me,” shared Leong.
