Gen­er­a­tion next

Prestige (Singapore) - - UNDERCOVER - Visit pres­ti­geon­ for our be­hind-the-scenes video with Vicky Hwang

Call it a pass­ing of the ba­ton, if you would. Four­teen years ago when the late CS Hwang, founder of the Chyau Fwu Group, built his art deco sky­scraper, Parkview Square — the lo­ca­tion of our cover shoot — his grand­daugh­ter, Vicky Hwang, would join him on site. Now blessed with her own fam­ily, Hwang is shoring up the fam­ily legacy, by steer­ing the land­mark’s re­cent “restora­tion”. Just as her sib­lings and cousins joined their par­ents and grand­par­ents at their busi­ness meet­ings, her own two daugh­ters, aged five and two, are here to­day to ob­serve mum at work; even if it means the el­der of the two is skip­ping her af­ter­noon Chi­nese les­son. Like a mem­ber of the pho­to­graphic crew, the lit­tle one even finds her­self a good van­tage to whip out a phone cam­era and doc­u­ment the day. Wait… per­haps it’s ac­tu­ally pho­tog­ra­pher Wee Khim who has some com­pe­ti­tion com­ing up the rungs.
