Summerlicious @ the Atrium

By Nicole Edwards, Year 3, Diploma in Marketing

NYP’s atrium is constantly buzzing with fairs and performances throughout the year. This week, the spotlight is on “Summerlicious” event. Largely occupied by food vendors, the atrium is buzzing with hungry students and filled with the smells of delicious food. Other vendors include cosmetic blogshop owners (like Smoochiezz) and a range of fashion stalls as well.
I am sure everyone will agree that one of the highlights of this event is the food! With all sorts of delicacies ranging from burgers and kebabs to cupcakes and yogurt, there is something for everyone at any time of the day. Most of the stalls open at about 9 and by 11, everything is up and running. Some of the popular stalls include the Ramly burger and the Taiwanese Chicken stall. With snaking lines, it is easy to see that food coming out if those stalls is nothing short of mouth-watering. Those in line seem to have no problem with having to wait 10 minutes for that bag of chicken or piping hot burger. What’s good about these stalls is that everything is made fresh and served hot so you know that whatever you have ordered will be worth the wait.
Another highlight that has definitely left the ladies contented is the ever popular Smoochiezz stall. The blog shop is popular for selling popular cosmetic brands, such as Mac and NYC, at warehouse prices, making it more affordable and definitely more attractive for students. Smoochiezz is a familiar face at NYP, having had a stall in the atrium about 2 months ago, and it is certainly always a welcome sight. Its shelves of lipsticks and numerous carts of nail polish are impossible to ignore. Carrying trendy brands like OPI and China glaze with their gorgeous colours and cute names, it is no wonder crowds of girls can always be found there spending quite a bit of time picking out that perfect shade or renewing their make-up brush collections.
The Summerlicious event is definitely a hit with students who enjoy a good mix of food and shopping. School fairs are something that everyone can appreciate and look forward to and students will surely be looking forward to the next food/fashion fair to take place in NYP.

Summerlicious” was organized by 21 Year 2 School of Business Management students as part of their Teaching Enterprise Project. These events provide a platform for students to hone their events planning and business management skills.
