As I arrived at the venue, I was surprised to be welcomed by a lot of MIHCA students. I was immediately guided to our seat at their restaurant area. Once everyone has arrived, we were informed that we will be having a short tour.For the first part of the tour, we were taken to a room which looked exactly like a hotel room. I was impressed that everything even the Holy bible by the bed stand, the towels in the bathroom or the pillows inside the drawers are accurately set out. We were taught how to fix a hotel bed. We were given tips on how to purchase and checks bed sheets, how to do the costing and we were also oriented on the modern way of hotel bedding. They were very open to our questions and even gave us a gift as a token for our participation.

We were taken to the kitchen. Graduating students welcomed us with a tray of finger foods. They were delicious! We proceeded deeper into the kitchen where students were busy preparing for the dishes that they will serve us for lunch.

They gave us refreshments and were shown some cool barista moves. It was definitely heart-thumping. I could feel my heart beat with mixture of fear and amazement while watching. Check the video below.

I'm so glad I attended. I came there knowing nothing about household and yet just for a day, I learned bed fixing and chicken trussing. Thank you MIHCA Makati for the hospitality.
