"I am a full time student currently enrolled in the final year of McMaster engineering. I have been admitted the entrance by UCLA,US. And I will continue my master degree there this September.  At this moment, I would like to thank every service Mac provided to me, especially the hospitality service.

The food here is amazing, I appreciate all your department members that contribute the effort to make such high quality work. It is not easy to serve great meal for the huge amount of students. I would like to mention here, as I am an Asian international student, most of time I dined in the east meets west bistro, because I really enjoy the Asian food there, such as seafood dinner plate, Japanese Udon, Pad Thai, shrimp wonton soup. The Asian food here makes me feel at home eating mom's best cooked food. The excellent food is with me for three years, makes my high grade possible. It is going to be important memory in my student life or whole of my life.

Thanks again to the all the members in this department, especially all the staffs of east meets west bistro and the Chinese chef there!

Best wishes"
