This was the last day we were in charge in the class. We finished the teaching demo on this day. We made a simple farewell party and invited every people included teachers, coordinators, and our buddies. The purpose of this party was to thank to everybody for being kind, nice and hospitable on this SEA-TEACHER project. We planned to cook Indonesian food such as chicken soup, bakwan, and Indonesian super chili sauce for them. My friends and I went to traditional market to buy all of the ingredients such as chili, onion, ginger, carrot, cabbage, chicken, and many more. We went back to mansion and start cooking. Every person had their responsibility. I was in charge for cutting the ingredients such as chili, carrot, onion, etc. After that I helped other by cooking the rice and being a food tester. I made sambel matah. Sambel matah is one of Balinese chili sauce. Because of the limitation of seasoning I tried to use the existing ingredients only. I put chili, onion, eggplant, oil, salt, and seasoning. I just made a little bit sambel matah because I thought nobody would like that because it was very spicy.
At 4 pm the guests came. They came while we were still cooking. We tried to finish it as soon as possible then got dressed. There were Ma’am Imelda, Ma’am Jeanette, Kuya Mee Jay Domingo, Kuya Jay Pee, Karla and many more that I could not mention one by one. But, my TTI Mr. Ariston did not come because he was busy preparing everything for the valentine’s day on the next day. At 6 pm everybody already came. I surprised that there were a lot of additional food aside our food that we’d already prepared before. Kuya Domingo bought a cake. There was a writing on that cake. It was “SEA-TEACHER Farewell Party”. Everything was ready. We started it with a pray first. My sambel matah was in demand. It ran out quickly. Someone even asked for more sambel matah. I should have made a big portion of it. It was a wonderful night. We ate then sing together. We spent the rest of our time happily. Thanks to MMSU for gathering us together with these kind people.
