|Cyril Ma – is he a poet? A musician? Maybe an actor? Or a diva? If you answered yes to all these questions, then you are absolutely right. As a man of many talents, he could easily add competitive eater to that list without any additional effort. Known around MG as ‘The Abyss’, Cyril is an unstoppable force that will devour anything remotely edible and more. His coworkers have theorized that he was born with a rare genetic condition that prevents him from ever feeling full. ‘Leftovers’ is not a part of his vocabulary.
Cyril is the proud father of three feline juveniles and it seems that the apples don’t fall far from the tree. As three of the few beneficiaries of the global pandemic, Eggplant, Vermicelli and Sticky Rice have been conditioned to meow up a storm during Cyril’s Zoom classes because they’ve learned that if he’s talking to the computer, then he has to shut them up by offering treats.
If you’re ever at the MG office and want to say hi to Cyril, look for the bearded gentleman with long, majestic locks of jet black hair. Just make sure he’s not busy delivering a transcendent masterpiece of a lesson in his subjects of English, Music and Theory of Knowledge. Rumor has it that one of these lessons was so captivating that a student’s computer caught on fire.
