Diploma in Culinary Art Over

Officially on Saturday the members of Taylor's College Diploma in Culinary Arts 27 also known as the DC27's is going to disband and each and everyone will head out to their respective path from working to studying abroad.

I myself find it quite difficult to graduate from DC27 .All my friends or i should say now as buddies and also the good memories and fun we had.Crazy things that happened.And also not forgetting all those fights and arguments we had.It is a beautiful time i had with all of you all, and not forgetting those sweet little bastards that i hate,you guys also made my time with you all fun and quite enjoyable.

I can't deny that i am quite a guy who likes to brag and show off.And i am quite a control freak.Has to be from my days in secondary school. I totally apologise for that and whatever that i may has offended you. Maybe my way of working is not suitable for everyone and sometimes i do ignore people feelings.

Memorable things about the past 2 years

1) Our first day when we met each other and the outing the day after.
2)The sarcasm of everyone that just make me speechless but nevertheless happy
3)Those Templar's Park waterfall trips
4)Andy's fear and dislike of leeches and the way he kill them
5)Training at Cuisine Studio with Han, Jonathan and Carlos
6)Yum cha session A.K.A Gossping session
7)The "animals" in group 2
8)The love dramas
9)Foosball and pool session
10)Long hours of works in kitchen from 3am to 4pm.
11)Yi lin wearing skirt for 3 times
12)Comfort by friends during emo times
13)Playing and joking in kitchen
14)Those culinary jokes
15)Food promotions
16)All those "caring touching" by group mates especially han,cow and jonathan
17)The argument which started from "where you get the parchment paper?"

This are just some things that and i think the list will go on.2 years is not short time.Here are some pictures from the past 2 years.

I Am A Flowing River

the serenity of the forest,
One could hear the faint sound of water,
The great flowing river cutting through the forest,
Calm flowing current,
None stood in its path,

Like a river in a forest......that's what i am feeling now.I told myself I shall act calm and steady, i shouldn't loose my logic or stress my body.I am going to have fun until the end.No stress or obstacles should stood in my way.

Cooking is fun and i shall enjoy it .Comments and hell with them.I am having my final exam in kitchen tomorrow.After seeing the victims of worries and stress, i strongly told myself i should not and will not be like them. So tomorrow will be a day to test my happiness and my will to stay calm and relax.

Day is done,
Gone the sun,
From the sky,
From the hill,
From the sea,
All is well,
God is nigh.

Cooking is no longer just an Art, It mores to Competition

Cooking is no longer an art?

That is what i was thinking as i was searching for recipes to prepare for my final exam.Its seems like cooking is not anymore to bring happiness to others or to make one feel good just by eating the food anymore.

As time passes, i realizes that we (dc students) tends to get more competitive as every passing term.In term 1, we were just enjoying ourselves ,willing to help and teach another and smile while learning to cook.Now that feeling has changed into something else.Whenever one did a good job, we tend to get jealous and start talk highly about that someone in very sarcastic way.And then they will try to strive just to win that person back.....competition is good but it is also bad in a way.

What happened to being happy that your friend did well or proud that he is like that! Why as we get older , we tend to be more jealous of others even our close friends.I can say i get jealous of others at certain time.It is human nature i assume....Fame and Reputation and not forgetting EGO is like a double edged can help you to obtain your objective but it can also hurt yourself in the end....

Why not whenever we see our friend being praised for his good work and just say "Good job,man " instead of sarcasm which may just make the person feel bad for doing a good job.

*Not trying to point some sense into anyone, just a expression of feelings

My GroupMates

It has been 2 years, can't say its short nor its long but in this 2 years,i really appreciated and enjoyed your companionship.All the sweet and bitter experience is something which I know all of us won't forgot. In just 2 weeks time, all of us will be heading towards different paths .I still remember how we worked with each other.We were a good team ....thats what i can see.We comunicate with each other in our own way, scolding,cursing and screwing each other but in matter of a day, we are good buddies again.

I certainly will remember each and everyone of you.Each with a different habit and personality but when it comes group time, we worked together like an "item".The good old days and certainly the new vocabulary ; SLAM and MACHIKENI......

In the start of term 2 or 3, i remember we doing comments on one another personality of how one felt about the rest.So i decided to do one just before we parted towards our own ways.In a alphabetic order...haha

From left to right : Cow,Maynard,Ckin,Zaha,Hadi,Andy,Leon,Vincent(me),Yi lin Phang,Mischa,Aniq,Jonathan,Han,Seng Ming,Chef Frederic. Missing:Hong,and Jay

Zaha@Kudhu - The soft and gentle Zaha who always give a cool and calm feeling whenever around her.Never did she complaint about anything and not forgetting the sweet smile whenever you greet her.

Aniq@BearBear -The joyful and always jolly bear...oops ...i mean guy.Always rolling his cigrattes and ais kosong.He is a good friend whom you can just talk to without any guard.And plus he is huggable and cute.

Yi Lin@Lamlam - The girl who drives Myvi 78.Surprisingly quite a hardcore gamer.An obedient daughter and i will always remember the "tiba -tiba kena F@#&%". Should be seeing her since she also want to go for BDH.Now i remember why i don't want go BDH :p

Mischa@LiShuang -Hyperactive girl who posseses the power of sugar rush and not forgetting all the "SLAM SLAM !!" whenever she around.A random girl who just talk randomly and is now quite famous for the square cat.

Han@Nemo -One of my comrade in training.A friend who is trustable , always ready to help someone without expecting anything.He always accidentally take my ingredients in kithcen..i mean always...maybe he trying to get my attention. Oh yeah, he also made my training miserable but it was fun.

Hong@Hong - No nickname so far for her. Friendly person i must say and all those stupid things that she told me. I will always remember her as the girl in shorts and slippers watching drama in class while the lecturer is in front.Bravo!

Andy@Andian -The malay guy who isn't quite malay. He say he is going to be a supplier, so i do expect cheap price from him later.The tall guy with a high sense of curiousity and i think thats why he drive evo 7 , to zoom around to sastify his curiousity....just kidding.And thanx for the dinner.

Man Yaw@Cow -The green cow who always sing in the class.Known for his doraemon act and ngan loi.Always grabbing and molesting me for no reason.

Jonathan@Taiko Cheras -Another comrade of mine in training.He is certainly a taiko.He talk like one and drive like one.But the best thing about him, he know a lot of people.If i need a kitchen manager, i will certainly find him due to his networking.

Maynard@Kucing Sakti -Yup...i gave the name kucing sakti to him. A magical cat that flew from Sarawak and is always sarcastic and ready to talk until you are speechless.A good fren to gossip with especially about "politics".And yeah he is married.....(fortunately)

Jay@FatLala -
Jay , the "Odd" one due to his liking in people .He always say he chose the wrong course but no offence its true.But undeniably he is good in talking with people so he is suitable as a PR.

Hadi@Huddy -Hadi, my little buddy who came far from being a quiet guy in the first term.Now he is a big rempit who have the skill of making really good and weird facial expression which will not fail to make you laugh.Well creative people have eccentric behaviour.

Leon@MagicMan-Leon , now a busy man due to his "you know who".Always with his magic tricks even in his assignments , he uses his magic tricks. And somehow always magically get into accidents.

Ckin@Mrs.One- Ckin, my little "sayang" who always is just adorable.The sayang here means she is like a little sister to me.Always trying to greet me with cute (weird) gestures. When she did not sleep for one night , my advice to all, try avoid from looking at her....

Phang@Old Man -Thats what jonathan call him...He is the eldest in our group and is the mature and more sensible than all of us.The good thing about him is that he can mix with all of us despite the age gap.

Seng Ming@CarrotCake - The Melaka boy who is always with his maplestory.A funny guy who is always not serious.Always making lame joke about Lala .And the suprising thing about him is he tease people so people will chase him and "rape" him.And i can see him smiling and laughing while being "Raped"

This term is our final term and as any organization in this world....politics exist everywhere, and yes politics came into the dc's.Anger,Jealousy,Disastifaction,Disgust were all vented onto one another. Only left people screaming and pulling each other's hair.Politics are scary....Oh least we had 5 terms of nice experience...but term 6 is still another interesting term...

What else happened......hmmm....i went back to visit my scout troop for the Investiture Nite....a lot has changed with the troop, can't almost recgonize it.Some are good changes but some are not....Some tradition are to be kept and there's a reason its called tradition.....Juniors are getting smaller and smaller and more babyish...

Other than that, i got few extra scars from hot melting sugar to knives and hot oven.I gottten into a few "akward moments".Realized that the world is not easy to live in especially when there are a species that call girls that co-exist with another species call guys.....and yeah i got a bit "emo" , thats what my frens told me but don't worry i won't suicide or kill myself.

Oh exam is coming soon...wohooo..Its a exam where i go in.....get a list if ingredients and make my own dish out....and there is french oral interview,BM interview....This is bad....very bad....I can see the sun burning out now.Dark shadows falling upon me....and i am "blind".
