F****** origami mate, f****** origami, she says as two diners watch a video of origami.

She can also be heard putting on a similar voice as a group of people are filmed taking a photo in a swimming pool.

She ends her commentary with the phrase she-shing - a possible crude attempt to use the Mandarin for thank you, xie xie .

The video was posted as Giles was in Singapore to speak at the Global Restaurant Leadership Conference.

He addressed the conference on Tuesday as an expert on trends in food service.

He told The Courier Mail that he and Stott, an actress, model and businesswoman, were regretful and felt lousy , with their actions not reflective of the way we feel .
