Chef Muhamad Faizal, lecturer of SHTCA who is also the team leader of this competition said that the students’ successes have reflected KDU Penang’s commitment to provide quality education and a strong foundation in culinary arts.

“We competed with participants from Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam and Indonesia, and I was really amazed that our team actually came home with 23 prizes. It clearly shows that our students are well-prepared and are on par with the rest in the industry.” said Faizal.

One of the final year students of IMI Diploma in Professional Chef Training, Mr Waymann Cheong who won 1 Gold Medal and 2 Diplomas at the competition said that he began his preparation some 6 weeks before the competition.

“This was my first time participating in an international competition and it was a great experience for me to have faced unexpected challenges as the organiser changed some rules and regulations just 2 days before the competition. However, we managed it as we were trained
to be unruffled in all situations and to be flexible and creative!” Cheong expounded.
