More Achievements for Sunway’s SHTLM Students

Sunway University’s School of Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Management (SHTLM) students recently garnered more awards during the Nestle Coffee Competition 2012. Joanna Foong Xian Mae emerged champion while Natasha Binti Mohd Yusof emerged 2nd runner-up in the competition. Organised by Nestle, the competition was open to all colleges and universities around Malaysia.

Joanna Foong Xian Mae beat 19 other participating colleges and universities when she clinched the champion’s trophy for her original creations. To Joanna who is a first year student in the Diploma in Culinary Arts, this is an entirely new experience for her. Joanna elaborated that it was tough juggling between her tight schedule and training for this competition which took up a lot of her time. However, she managed to find her own authentic creations, for one hot coffee beverage and one cold coffee beverage that turned out to be winning recipes.
