The Story of A Chef...

And the last time I woke up was at 6 p.m. yesterday. And haven't slept since. Was preparing for the cooking competition for T's Day celebration.
And I went to school, not feeling well from the fever and the groggy-ness of lack of sleep. And there, as a male teacher, have to move tables, speakers, podiums, and stuff. And looking how the teachers in charge of documentation took pictures using their mobile phones, I volunteered my self and brandish my old buddy. And for about 7 hours I was snapping away, 'cept during I was readying the foods for the competition.
The menu was:

Garden Salad - Lettuce with capsicums (3 colours), tomatoes, onions, chicken nuggets, carrots and avocados (all either chopped or diced), served with a mix of mayonnaise and fresh orange juice, drizzled with lemon juice.

Brunch Sandwich - Buns, chicken patties, sunny side up egg, grilled tomatoes, shredded lettuce and carrots, and sour cream (I guess, made from yogurt and lemon juice).

Penne Shrimp Alfredo - Penne pasta with Alfredo, and garlic butter prawns.

Banana Berry Shake - Strawberries and bananas sliced, mixed with vanilla yogurt, orange juice and pineapple juice.



The verdict, I was placed last. Lotsa teachers commented that I should get first as the other teams did not go with the theme 'Western Food'. Where can you find pasta served with fish crackers? Fusion restaurant maybe?
And yeah, some commented our booth was not appealing enough? Appealing like wearing Saree-like costumes? How does Saree goes into the theme?
Or just because some of them cut out the inside of a melon and insert some cubed pineapples and nata de coco, they get higher points? Erm, hello, the theme is Western Food, not Tropical delicacies or Tropical desserts....

I am down tbh coz of that. But as usual, the kids cheer me up!
Teacher Nasrul becames Chef Nasrul as they said. ^_^

And serious thanks to Muslimatun, Miftahul, Athirah Liyana, Elviera, Rishmitaa, Farah, Aimiey, Aiman Safwan, Ilmi and several others. U made my day! ^_^

p/s: I went to the hospital today to check up on my condition. First, I'm a H1N1 suspect as I have the symptoms, then they changed it to a Dengue suspect. And from the blood test, the doc said that my blood platelets are quite low but near the borderline, so I might have dengue... BUT, since my water percentage in my blood is low too (which is ridiculous as I've been eating water and pissing lots!! So, they made an appointment for me tomorrow morning to again check my blood. Ah, the waiting~ Just loving it!
