this week’s highlights

had the first exam since the course started. b.o.u.l.a.n.g.e.r.i.e. i had a trial the week before n my result wasn’t very good.i didn’t have enough time to bake the croissants n pains aux chocolats…T_T..

i read some notes my friend gave me(big thanks!!^^..i’m too lazy to write notes…) the night before exam. n that’s the only preparation i could do other than praying for the best and had a good night sleep(which i hadn’t had that night…)

exam started at 6.30 am. everyone was on-time. we had briefing and then started the exam. for boulangerie classes, we usually do it threes or at least in pairs. but we had to do it alone during exam.that added the pressure. but everything went well. all of us did our own breads quite calmly. better than expected. we had done everything @noon. which was early coz the time limit is 12.30. the boulangerie chef was very pleased with our works. he said that we did better than  some of his students who had been in school in 2 years!! that’s really a big compliment…


each of us had to make:baguettes-4kg flour, shaping brioche,10croissants,9 pains aux chocolats, 1batch speciality bread. i made an incorect scoring for my speciality bread(picture bottom right. that’s incorrect!)


i had my interview for internship in l’hotel Plaza Athenee!!!!the moment i had been waiting for. i was quite intimidated coz it is a BIG hotel (i mean BIG in reputation…not so sure about the size)the building itself is really pretty. bright red flowers on the sides of the entrance and on the balconies, red canopies, can’t remember what else is red.will check on that. i got treated really well by the staffs and my interviewer. didn’t ask me difficult questions. maybe she thought that i wouldn’t be able to answer them anyway since i understand better than i talk in  french. but all goes well n i even got to see the pastry kitchen!i hope i made a good impression and do well during intern!!
