Share a bit about your restaurant business with us.
The Emmanuel Stroobant Group runs a few restaurants - Brussel Sprouts, Picotin, SQU and Saint Pierre. Saint Pierre started as a 1,300 sq ft fine dining restaurant back in 2000. We've since shifted to this larger, more relaxed venue at Quayside, Sentosa.
Why did you choose the Volkswagen Eos?
The Volkswagen Eos was actually a surprise anniversary gift from my husband! Emmanuel met Dr. Olaf Duebel, the Managing Director of Volkswagen Singapore at that time, when he was over at Saint Pierre for dinner. The two talked cars and Olaf showed Emmanuel the Volkswagen Eos that he was driving, and the rest is history.
What do you like about this Volkswagen hard-top convertible?
I really like the size. Being able to parallel park easily is a big advantage. Bringing the top down when it's not so hot is great too, and the kids love that of course. They'll scream "We want the top down, Mommy!"
