festival for hotels and
Through a Project Based On Exchange (PBoX) Tourism Programme, Association Internationale des Etudiants en
Sciences Economiques et Commerciales (AIESEC) helped enliven Culinary Food Festival which was held by the
Office of Culture and Tourism of Malang. Centered in court of Malang Olympic Garden (MOG) on Tuesday (7/5),
this activity was opened by the Head of Tim Penggerak Pemberdayaana dan Kesejahteraan Keluarga (TP-PKK),
Dra. Hj. Heri Pudji Utami, M.AP. Some famous hotels and restaurants in Malang also helped enliven this event
beside the people. AIESEC itself had five booths and filled with students who were participating in a intern from
several countries including the
Giselle Najera Guzman from
United States, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea and Netherlands.
In that occasion they showed traditional foods from their countries. At the booth of Mexico for example, there were
traditional foods such as quesadillas, mole, guacamole, frijolej (beans), pay de limon frio and chipotle chile. These
various traditional foods were prepared by the students of International Relations themself from the Universidad de
las Américas Puebla (UDLAP), Ghiselle Guzman Najera. To PRASETYA Online, Giselle admitted her difficulty
in getting the cooking ingredients here so it had to be imported directly from Mexico.
The difficulty to get cooking ingredients is apparently not experienced by Linda Lai, a student of History/Ethnicity
program, Race and Migration at Yale University, United States. In her booth, Linda served macaroni cheese which
was also processed by herself. "Making these foods are very easy, I only need one hour to process. The material
can be
Linda Lai from United States
found here ", she said. Linda, who lived in America since 11 years ago, had completely memorized the
characteristics of these foods from Uncle Sam's country. "Americans like practical food, fast food and cheesy",
said Linda whose nationality is Chinese.
Accoding to her, this was the distinguishes between the food from her native country, China, which needed lots of
times to cook. During her visit in Indonesia, a daughter of a business consultant observed Indonesian food which
was very spicy, according to her. To PRASETYA Online, Linda said, as a primary food, rice was always combined
with vegetables and spicy side dishes. "It's the perfect combination, bland rice mixed with vegetables and spicy
side dishes," said Linda, who claimed to love to taste food from different countries.Food that is mixed between
rice, vegetables and side dishes apparently a new thing for two participants from Korea, Minjung Park and Jieun
Won. "In Korea, rice, vegetables and side dishes are always separated", said Minjung Park that in the occasion was
wearing a typical cloth of Korea, Han Bok. Similar to Indonesia, a student of International Relations at Korea
University explained that Korean food was also very spicy. As on that occasion, they introduced some traditional
food that were cucumber soup,

ddeok-bok-ki and the gang jung. Ddeok-bok-ki for example, is a type of moci cake which is widely known in
Indonesia, made of rice flour cooked with a spicy flavor and sweet gochujang. On her visit in Indonesia, the two
Korean students had a chance to taste the fried rice, fried noodles, gado-gado and seafood. "Indonesian people
prefer spicy and sweet food", they assessed.
Besides spicy, Indonesian food is also known for its diversity. "The diversity of food can also be found in
Singapore", said a student of National University of Singapore, Gao Yi Lei. In the countey of lion, according to
her, the food from various countries such as Indonesia, China, India, Malaysia and Japan were easily found in the
Food Court. "Singapore does not recognize traditional food," she said. Indonesian food
Gao Yi Lei from Singapore
such as lamak rice, rujak (salad), padang food were easily found there. In her booth, Gao Yi Lei served fried
noodles of Malaysia seasoned and tart of apple pie. Besides food, she also showed souvenirs such as key chains,
magnets, and the Singapore currency.Other participants were from Netherlands, Charlotte Hamar de la Brethoniere,
in that event featured some Dutch traditional foods such as Dutch Cheese, stroopwafels, pan cakes, drop (Dutch
traditional candy) and chocolate. "Almost all of my own to make. The materials are easily found here", said
Charlotte who was Indonesian blooded from her father. In fact, a student of European Studies in Univesity of
Amsterdam admitted, when she was creating stroopwafel, she could replace the Dutch syrup (which must be
imported from Windmills country) with Java sugar which was similar.
