Korean students attend Dining Etiquette course
Oh Chung Gi (centre) and Han Suk Hee (right) take soup the right way: lift the spoon up to
the mouth and not bend down to scoop it. Chung Gi, a martial arts major at Daeduk,
is doing his military service, while Suk Hee is in Electrical Engineering Year 2.
A group of 30 exchange students from Daeduk University, Korea were treated to a dining etiquette course as well as lunch by the Centre for Culinary Entrepreneurship and Hotel Management. The workshop was conducted by Head Chef Lecturer Mohammed Razif.

If you spill something at a restaurant, what should you do?
“Signal the waiter” – Chef Razif.
A useful lesson from Chef Razif: “Fork in the right hand, knife in the left;
control both utensils with the index finger and thumb.”
A wefie in appreciation of good service: Chung Gi snaps a
picture with Hasan Mehadi from Bangladesh
(Dip Hotel Management, Year 2).
Why Chung Gi is pleased with the service: he got a double
serving of the delicious Vietnamese spring roll and salad
starter from Hasan.
Maeng So Hyeon (Mechanical Eng Year 1) got a special dessert
serving of HELP CAT’s famed macaroons from the kitchen.
At the end of the course, Chef Razif proudly presents his
student-waiters to the guests.
