Chef Tetsuya Wakuda of Singapore’s Waku Ghin has been named 2015 Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award Winner.
I'm a big fan of his, and I was privileged to meet him a very long time ago, while I was in Tokyo living a #Travelife and before he became world-famous, through mutual friends during one of his visits to Japan.
