Talk about rotten luck. I should not bicker though, since there are others who face more misfortune than I am. Just now, I have lost my room keys but thankfully my roommate was in the room. Now what I am worry about is that someone actually took the key and might take the opportunity to steal my belongings inside the room. I just hope I can trust the people here to be honest.While most science students are having scientific experiments of their own, the dietetic students (including myself) also have our very own approach in experimentations. Although the common idea for scientific experiments usually involves hazardous chemicals with state-of-the-art apparatus, ours on the other hand are quite simple. And like any other experiments, we also include chemicals and apparatus. The only difference is however, we can consume our experiment results. Oral consumption, to be exact. As you might figured, the dietetic students do cooking. However there is nothing fancy unlike those from the culinary school. Our cookings are much fundamental in terms of basic food preparations and applications. Never have I thought to have enjoy experiments so much as this one. Food tasting alone is not enough for this kind of experiments. We need to analyse those food we cooked and explain the principals involved, all written inside a report. All of the sudden, eating is no longer a simple task.Fortnight ago, we were asked to come up with our own breakfast recipe. My group managed to bring forth a quick fix – a club sandwich. Named as “USM Club Sandwich”, our sandwich is actually a tuna and egg sandwich. Initially we intended to use tuna and turkey but turkey was not available for our disposal. So egg was our final option. Nonetheless, from the nutrition aspect, the sandwich is quite nutritious and energy-laden that makes it suitable as a breakfast menu.
USM Club sandwich is good for breakfast.This week, the recipe had been decided for us and now we need to work in pairs. My partner and I were given the task to cook “mi goreng basah” or wet fried noodle. Unfortunately it was not even close of getting wet and the noodle was too soft for my palate. What’s worse is the overwhelming taste of garlic – and I hate garlic! Despite of this, the meal was not too bad after all.
