ESCF - 4 months on

  • Time really does fly when you're having fun.
  • Even though its nice to get good marks at school, the most important thing at the end of the day is what you can produce yourself once you leave. Only you can be a judge of what you do, bearing in mind that you also have customers to satisfy. Being better than "X" doesn't really come into the equation (wise words from Ulla).
  • I need to be more gracious when accepting compliments rather than completely ignore them, hard to break a habit of a lifetime! :)
  • There's no greater feeling than knowing that you will always have loved ones, family and friends supporting you. Without this, I think it would've been a lot more difficult for me to complete this course. Go raibh míle maith agat, 多謝, makasih,  감사합니다, merci buckets, thank you.......
  • Chef is a lot more perceptive than I give him credit for ;)
  • I really hope I don't screw up my stage.
  • I really need to muster up some confidence for stage, pastry test, etc..... 
  • Please let me reproduce a near perfect ice cream mould for the test next week ;)
  • Did I make the right decision to quit the rat race? YES!

Hey, this comment is totally unrelated to your post, so forgive me. I just wanted to say thanks for letting me know that Happy Nouilles serves Jia Zhiang Mian - I just went back for it.

I was excellent, spicy enough to get me sweating a bit, which is just what I wanted.

no probs - the staff are pretty nice in Happy Nouilles once you get chatting to them. Bon App! :)
