Serving different kind of foods all around the Asia is what the food street is in ISHRM. Students with culinary subject prepare different kinds of food which different countries specialized. Arranging different stalls depending on what country they have been assigned and being like from that country from their clothes is what they do next. And then ofcourse they will serve it to all the students and faculty of the school. This tradition made culinary students prepared cooking and serving different dishes with different plating which will attract people to eat their foods. This made students be competitive in cooking their best. Sharing is the meaning of the food street as for what I see. Having people walking around the place and seeing what the foods are in other country shared some information to everyone. Giving knowledge, being competitive, giving foods, be fair, and to give enjoyment is what food street for me is.
A great food street, that’s what came in my mind for my first intramural in ISHRM. Though I have been experience having sport fest as part of the intramural from my last school, it’s my first time to attend in some organize celebration like a food street. Actually I never wanted to attend in it from the first; I thought that it will be such a waste of time for I can eat at home. But since I needed it for my subject I decided to go. As I came I was surprised that people are really that busy. They are all competitive. Though students are being everywhere, it is not easy for it to be organized. I am disappointed that it takes too long for it to be started. It’s good that my friends were there. I enjoyed talking to them as we wait for the food serving. Since I wanted to eat early the business administration students in first year level was perfect having their small stall and selling gulaman and melon which taste so good.
From my sister and brother who are student of ISHRM from 2010 I heard that food street is giving foods which came from the culinary students, other that I don’t have any idea about what will happen. I don’t expect that the school is really paying attention and prepared for the celebration, though time is not part of it. From 4:00 pm which they said that it will be started, for me it starts at 6:00 pm, I didn’t recognize the judging of the foods which I didn’t saw. And I even didn’t hear the opening speech of the school administrator. I also didn’t saw the theatro dancing because of overcrowded place. Being in the hallway before the canteen we are really surprise about the fireworks which we enjoy.
I don’t expect that the school have a lot of fireworks for the intramural celebration. But for me, it’s good that they do the fireworks first before serving foods. It made the students who are waiting for too long have their good moods again. After the fireworks we didn’t know where we should go next and what we should do. Since we are already in the hallway going to the stalls my friends and I decided to divide ourselves for us to save time. Some of us wait for the line for the drinks and some of us look for the line which we should be going for our food. As we saw the right line, we get our foods together with the foods of our other friends. And as we went to the pavilion our drinks were already there and we gave the other foods for them as change for our dinks.
Time management is really what I wanted to recommend first. Let their students know what the time it will start and don’t let their students waiting there for too long. They should also try to look for other bigger place for the celebration. It will be nicer if there are tables and chairs for the next venue of the food street. They should still have the foods prepared in a box so that it will be easier to distribute.
They should write to the stub the name of the country so that students will not going to walk and walk all around looking for their line. The foods were not that so good but maybe I am not that type of person who likes to eat foods of other countries. I also saw that serving foods are not fair because two of our friends told us that there dot have rice in their box. And since there is only one food to be assigned for every student, we didn’t know which will be best. I think they should put one food for each country in one box. And if there will be rice, all the box should also have the same contain.
