PREPARING THE MENU OF A REGIONAL CONFERENCE

sobra ngang variety ng mga cultura dito sa singapore kaya ang pinakamalaking problema pag nag sponsor kami ng conference ay ang menu. we have to prepare special food for everybody. for the muslims – bukod sa walang baboy ay dapat “halal” (the jews have their own equivalent: “kosher“). karamihan naman ng mga bumbay ay vegetarian, kaya may special meal na walang karne. yung mga hindu at buddhist ay di naman pwede ang beef, so may special dish din para sa kanila. yung mga amerikano at australians, ayaw ng asian kaya dapat may western food, typically beef (ie, steaks and hamburgers for you, joe).

pinoys? tangina, kainin ko ngang lahat ang mga pagkain nila.

ang kinaiinisan ko lang eh, sometimes you take pains preparing a “culturally correct” meal and the frigging people don’t even touch the food. pag nabuwisit ako, next time sasabihin ko “bring your own baon” na lang. i swear to god, there are people that are so: what’s the word? uhm, picky, fussy, fastidious, finicky, persnickety (i love this word) when they eat outside of their own country. it annoys me.
