World Food Fest: Just for Fun
2013-11-19 11:34  

On the afternoon of October 31st, thousands of foreign students from twenty one countries as well as Chinese students gathered together on the "Main Street" of the GDUFS campus to celebrate at the World Food Fest of GDUFS. Having a lot of fun-enjoying not only distinctive foods but also other entertainment, the students, faculty and friends could all be seen enjoying in the fest.

At the opening ceremony, students from all countries dressed in exotic costumes, gathered together and took photos together. With the opening announcements by GDUFS leaders and a traditional celebratoryLion dance, the feast began. Students went back to their food booths and started passionately promoting their traditional dishes.

Lion dance signals the beginning

"I wanna try this and that!" was heard on all sides. Undoubtedly, the feasting was going on with great excitement. Walking became so difficult at the peak moment of the celebration... due to the huge crowd…that people simply stopped, bought some exotic dish, and just ate. All kinds of food were around and various comers of the world jumped into our sight and if you had good appetite, you could taste exotic cuisines from all over the world-dishes such as Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Russian, Spanish, French and others. The food which was all “home-made?smelt so delicious. Participants had all bought ingredients in supermarkets and either prepared the dishes in advance or, as some did, cooked things on the spot. The meat and hot dogs were roasted, pan-fried and deep fried-and the vegetables were mixed and served in appetizing variety. Some servings were large cost less, such as that for the Sudan bread, that no one would go hungry. If thirsty, you would never be disappointed at the Thailand teas, Vietnam lemon-juice drinks, German beers and French red wine were all ready for you there. All the dishes had distinct special flavors and all tasted so delicious. And for all the students, both participants and guests enjoyed themselves.

So Much Delicious food to taste

Good people to meet

Apart from the delicious food, different ways of attracting guests to the individual booths are pretty attention-grabbing. Students from Spain organized an exciting game in which the participant who had paid 5RMB beforehand took an apple only with their mouth out of a bucket of water.

So ebullient are theUzbekistan students that they invited the guests to their traditional music with dance with them to their traditional music. In addition, the French held a competition whose winner, the one drinking beer at the highest speed, could get it for free. Also, foreign students were glad to take photos with guests. Interestingly, kisses for only 3 RMB per kiss were sold to guests by beautiful Spanish beautiful girls. How amazing!

Interesting games to play

Exciting dance to show

Such activity did bring incredible joy to both Chinese and foreign students, all different from what they had experienced before.”I like dancing with people from all over the world!”a beautiful girl said. She came to China for two months of study and had made many friends. When we asked how much they had earned in selling their food, an Uzbekistan student said they care nothing about the money; they just wanted to have fun! On the other hand, a Chinese student commented that people were very kind and excited and the activity was getting better and better each year.

Come back again next year?and bring your appetite!
