wah lau, today's papers..

http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking+News/Sport/Story/STIStory_565714.html

i can't believe it man.. even when i was in army i had better food provided by SFI.. the authorities are horrible.. wanna save money etc, come on man.. if its ur kid doing one whole day of work for FREE, you see them eat like that for lunch will also heart pain lor..

can't stand it man, all the hype about having dunno what B#(*@$S first time YOG... give this standard..

hais.. and all the people who said that its acceptable - if its ur son volunteer in the hot sun and eat that i think you will say differently..

Some ppl say it is bad, some ppl say the food is ok...so how will you know for sure who is correct?

I think the judgement of food is depending on person to person.. to some poor kids, these could be like "heaven" to them...

6 pieces of long beans and a piece of meat fillet....

SFI catered food in army has 3 dishes + soup and 1 fruit..sometimes ice cream too.

Glad this was brought up, otherwise when overseas officials see our volunteers eat these stuff, its the ultimate disgrace.

Yeah whether the food is nice or not is up to the taste of the individual. But looking at the photo of the food, it is an unmistakable reflection as to how the committee responsible regard the volunteers.

It's like...'we thank you for helping out at the event...here you go...there's your rice....eat it'.

its a shame this kind of thing happen. Dont know what to say... Hai .. So much effort in place to make it a once in a life time event and such simple thing like Meals can end up in the wrong way. Next time, who will want to volunteer again ??

"The meal, served in a plastic box, comprised a mound of rice, a meat fillet and six pieces of long bean."

"He said: 'One of the meals was a dry, tasteless piece of chicken with a few slices of carrot and some soggy rice. I ended up throwing most of it away.'

how is this good?

its not whether its poor kids or better off kids.. its the kinda treatment that is given to the volunteers.. if it is in sufficient quantity then you say the taste is no good then ok la, acceptable argument..

but here the problem is not the taste.. its what is given.. look at the photo, does this even reach the standard of singapore nowadays?

no wonder nobody want to volunteer have to force people to help..

at least note the right party at fault, if want to make noise.

Singapore Food Industries (SFI), a subsidiary of the Singapore Airport Terminal Services (Sats), provided the food. It had been awarded a $5.5 million catering services contract by the YOG organising committee.
i believe it does not say that "YOG organising committee cook the food and serve it to volunteers".

haha, think they forget now is face book internet era, such thing will sure appear. Now, who will be blamed???? Blame the volunteers for asking more? Blame the committee fail to ensure? Or blame singaporeans making a big hooooooo haaaaaaa out of this while many countries got no food? Blame the Sats for bidding too low, the 5.5 million not enough profit?

There shd be more cases following up.

hmm... looks better than the food served in Safti during my NS.
there were cook houses then... and unhappy cooks....

hey good idea....in future the full service (non-budget) airlines serve this kind of food to even the first class passengers.
Then Durai will not be so desperate and hard-up to fly first class anymore...
say need to cut cost.....

The meal would look decent if the portion of long beans were to be increased :think:
