The food festival near The Manarul Mosque was an unique culinary destination for the new international students during lunch break. Here, the international students could try Indonesian traditional food sold by street vendors. After lunch break, the session was divided into two. Darmasiswa students were given explanation about learning Bahasa, while the other international students paying attention to Dormitory session.
