SINGAPORE, 20 NOVEMBER 2008 — FUSILLI WITH MUSHROOMS in tomato sauce, baked salmon with cream and mushroom and chicken with green pepper in teriyaki sauce… all served up with soothing music and warm lighting in the background.
It wasn’t a buffet at a restaurant — this was the spread at the dinner hall at Asia Conference. Conference guests and delegates were pleasantly surprised by the customized menu and food choices that catered to all kinds of taste buds.
Constance Low, a foreign worker agent in her 40s and a delegate from Community Baptist Church, Subang Jaya (Selangor), was happy about the food arrangements. “The food is excellent. I have no complaints. The table arrangement also helps to facilitate conversations among different participants from Asia. It has been an enjoyable experience for me.”

Sisca Liem, a church member of Gereja Bethel Indonesia (GBI, Jakarta) enjoyed the food service. “I find the ushers and waiters very helpful. In fact I always get free water bottles everyday from the volunteers. I look forward to dinner time but I am more hungry for the Word.”
Hall 7 houses more than 400 round tables with 70 to 80 waiters serving the dinner patrons at the same time. Richard Sue, 22, a sound crew member commented, “It’s busy in here! There are lots of people, everyone is excited. Some delegates told me the food is nice, and it’s freeflow.”
