But I set fireeeeee to the... banana ?

Hello My Lovelies,

another week at the hotel school almost over :) Fridays are usually pretty chill, got one class in the morning... hopefully my group will finally give the fudging presentation and in the afternoon we have another presentation to give about port wine. None of them marked.. just excercise so.. wtf ?

I got some other marks back and well.. I'm doing quite well (according to teachers NOT ME) we realised that I'm better at practical things, I always knew I'm not a good writer of essays, but now in complete honesty.. how much fantasy and elaborated writing can you put into an essay about "The importance of housekeeping in a hotel" ? The teacher's comment was that my essay was too "clinical" but I did a  "good job"...I don't get it.
My other essay (pair essay) was too dry and not critical.. yes I got it I tend to just state the facts and not really go into detail because you know what ? I honestly don't give an effff.

Today in F&B class (my best and my fave class) we learnt how to make banana flambe :) No idea what I did different from the others but apparently mine was the best taste wise... can't wait to make it again :D It's a lot of fun. It looks way more difficult than it actually is but tbh it's easier than gueridon service. You need butter, sugar, lemon juice, orange juice, liquor or rum, a banana or two.

Here's a pic of our set up today.. Ales making the banana, pic taken by Barbara :)

Yesterday evening I went to another event here at the school it was about fire safety and it was quite ok, there was a silly game and first it was the guys' turn then the girls' and of course who's been pushed to be of the girls' group ? yeh.. you guessed right.. me ! And guess what ? I even won this shit ! haha
The game was to answer a question and then wear a fireman uniform as quickly as possible. Here's me in all my pun intended.

Me and the lobster/chicken/jellyfish thingy oh and the prize... chocolate ! Hello diet eh ?

Let's talk about internships... I still got nothing. Yesterday I had a phone interview with Conrad Rangali Island, which IMO went quite alright, and I have another one on tuesday for a hotel which for "jinx" reasons I won't mention.. if I get bought it will be a helluva choice really. A hotel in Geneva apparently is interested as well, I'm not interested in them too much but I'll go to the interview anyway.. if the payment is good the payment is good ! For a lot of money I'd also work for this hotel. 

Oh...7th of May.. remember this date I will try to vlog that day cause it's gonna be an interesting one ;)

Tomorrow after class Franzi, Nefeli and Me are going on a quick weekend to Milan :) It's only 3 hours away and Franzi is driving !! We're gonna do couchsurfing so accomodation will be freeeeee :D although we might die haha nah jk, we picked one with a lot a lot A LOT of references :)

Next post will be about Milan then ;)

See ye on Monday
