Training – Week 2 & 3

January 27, 2009

It has been a long week for me. Sorry for the late update as I wasn’t back home for almost 2 weeks due to my working shifts. I was on morning shift last week (7 a.m till 3 p.m)at Main Kitchen. It was my first week there and I met with more chefs who are very nice and helpful. I learned to handle big pots and pans which are kind of heavy for me but so far everything is fine. And yeah, I made poh piah for guests on my first day at Main for the buffet lunch. It was fun and exciting! On the second day, I fried pasta and the following day I learned to make Mongolian stir-fry. It was great to see people enjoyed the food you made and I really don’t mind standing there and serve although my legs were tired. I still have another 2 weeks to go at Main Kitchen. I will learn as much as I can *grins*

My finger is completely healed. Thanks for the wishes and concern. This was how it looks like 2 weeks ago.

Let me introduce you briefly about The View Restaurant at EQ Hotel, the place where I underwent my training 2 weeks ago. This fine dining restaurant showcases authentic French cuisine that is complemented by majestic scenery of the island’s coastline that can be viewed through the entire length of the 10-metre windows. They serve luxurious ala carte for both semi buffet lunch and semi buffet dinner. I love seeing the dessert and entree presentation which comes in mini portion but full of creativity. The way Chef Palani presents them simply opens our guests’ appetite. Some of them are too cute and nicely presented to be eaten. Haha! Anyway, here’s the compliments to all the chefs (Chef Looi, Chef Palani, Chef Fahmy, Dwayne, Charles, Chan, Fikri), Mr. Renny, Ray and the rest who have guided me and taught me alot *wink*
