“I remember going from audition to audition in NYC one day and being really stressed out. I ended the day drinking Singha Beer with my friends to unwind at a Thai restaurant and just sharing stories. We sat around the table talking about the different things that happened to us that day and ironically, we all shared our stories drinking this beer. Needless to say that a few years later when I went to Thailand, that’s all I drank.” – Jake Choi
