There are in the form of barong, bird, flowers and roots like the Balinese carving motif. The work of art is then combined on a very beautiful dining table. Besides, the young girls also expertly arranged the young coconut leaf into a lamak (one of the ritual paraphernalia of the Hindus in Bali). They processed the coconut leaves and palm leaves into a beautiful spiritual work of art.

It was the Fruit Carving and Lamak Making Competition held by the Student Senate of the Triatma Jaya Tourism Institute (STIPAR), Saturday (Feb 15). The competition involved 27 participants and 8 teams for the lamak making from high school and vocational school across Bali. Aside from the creation, the elements of hygiene, beauty and harmony with the menu also became the assessment criteria of the jury panel.

Director of the STIPAR Triatma Surya Jaya, I Ketut Sutapa, said such an event aimed to maintain the existence of Balinese culture. The theme featured was related to the preservation of Balinese culture so the younger generation could appreciate and love the cultural values inherited. “The competition is to provide opportunities for children and the youth to develop their creativity,” he said.

As one of the educational institutions in the field of hospitality and tourism, the STIPAR also attempted to integrate the local culture with the power of creativity in the processing of fruits so as to produce a captivating work of art. “This competition can grow hard skills and soft skills that will later support the performance at hotel,” he said.

Chairman of the organizing committee, Miasa Sentana, said the competition was meant to encourage young generation so they could love their own culture. Current generation tended to leave the making process because they had alternative by purchasing it. The jury was brought in from the Indonesian Chef Association (ICA). The winners were awarded trophy, certificate and cash worth IDR 1.5 million, IDR 1 million and IDR 750,000 respectively for the first, second and third winner. Meanwhile, the winners of the lamak making were awarded cash worth IDR 1 million, IDR 750,000 and IDR 500,000 for respectively the first, second and third winner. (BTN/015)
