COMPANY HISTORY In 1994, New Horizon Hotel was first intended to be operated by its previous owners as a condominium hotel with a proposed name of Midland EDSA Hotel. That same year, Midland EDSA Hotel was acquired by the National Life Insurance Company which also hired Byron International Management Group to manage it. Byron EDSA Hotel was formally launched in 1995 and served the industry for two years until its management contract expired. National Life Insurance Company took over its operation and changed it name into Horizon EDSA Hotel. Its operation continued for the next 11 years until its owners decided to have it managed by a new management. In May 6,2006, spouses Marc and Ina Kerckhofs made a bold move and took over its operations.

In disposing garbage they make sure that it is properly segregated. It is their way of helping reducing garbage and putting it to usable one. They are very knowledgeable about garbage because these are the number one problems that were facing especially Mother Earth. All of these departments in one umbrella of the housekeeping department have a strategy to make their work easier and for them to be comfortable in their work. They listen to their supervisor and they make sure to follow in every detail that needs to be done in time. INTERPERSONAL RELATION The work atmosphere in the housekeeping is good and they are very accommodating. USED OF MATERIAL RESOURCES Housekeeping department.

Narrative Report 15 .

Oakwood hotel. if I can remember that first thing I said to myself “I will quit a fter 16 . Everybody wants to be in a 5 star Hotel you will have more privileges than in a 3 star hotel. I try my luck in Heritage hotel. so I contacted my friend and school mate if he could help me in my OJT especially hotel. we are obliged to do find a hotel and restaurant for us to be more competent in our line of work. I am very pleased to say that I am now a trainee from New Horizon Hotel. It is not my first time to experience the amenities of a good and well established hotel. I began my journey in searching for my training in Makati. Ascott Hotel or Mariott Hotel. As a Hotel and Restaurant Management student. I am excited that one of hat days they will call me and I can be a part of their family. we’ve been checking-in into different hotels 5 stars down to 3 stars but working in an establishment with more than 50 rooms and making your world busy as a bee is something I want to try. Richmond hotel and Microtel. Again I received no response from them. But weeks passed neither calls nor text coming from any of those establishments. I was assigned in housekeeping department. Intercon Hotel. at first I was not sure if I will fit and will be qualified as a trainee.The best way to learn is by experience. This is my motto ever since I started to find a hotel for my OJT. My first week. The reality is that I am losing my hope. I waited for 1 month but still no calls from the hotel. I try different strategy. I always keep in my mind that whatever happens I will never ever be a part of a 3star hotel. Dusit Thani and Intercon. bad for me because I don’t have any friends and with the change of time and schedule and with the reality that Paul is not with me anymore I was so nervous. I passed my resume in Ascott Hotel. Actually I am aiming for a bigger establishment like Dusit Thani. He is willing to help me but he said that their hotel as many OJT and crew that time so I needed to wait for another 3 weeks to start in my hotel practicum.

and everything will follow. clean Chef Danny’s office and the cafeteria. time management and especially how to do chores like cleaning. New Horizon indeed gives me the best training ground. Be thankful for what you have. They share their knowledge to me and they kept on saying that you have a long way to go be in mind that you lucky because your parents send you to a university unlike us we need to find a job to help our family. different sizes of mixing bowl and a lot more name it I’ve washed it all.this week” ironic. I learned to be competent and flexible. but I don’t have any choice but to comply for what they have asked me to do. you need a broom for sweeping. This makes me think that there are people who have a positive outlook in life they never give up as long as they can they will do it. All the chef’s in the kitchen are funny I laugh often . and a“basahan”. it is my fist time to wash different kinds of plates. I learned to be independent and life must go on. you need to set your goals because it is your dream. Housekeeping department is the most welcoming department in the hotel. sweep the floor of all the function room after the event. maintain the cleanliness of all the comfort rooms especially in the restaurant. Paris and Madrid. Second week of duty is as haggard as I ever imagined but the most enjoyable one. using the mop. My daily routine is to check the comfort room of Vienna. Public area. I am very disappointed because I don’t want to clean the comfort room. My schedule is from 2pm to 10pm. Harold and Sir Henry. My first week of duty thought me how to be responsible. a mop for drying the floors. it’s amazing. Brussels (if there is a function). afternoon shift I had a difficulty in going home because Mandaluyong is far from New Manila. frying pan from large sizes up to the smallest. Meeting different people and listening to their stories. they have the best crews and they are genuine and kind. dusting. aside from making the dish 17 . It’s not bad at all actually I am enjoying it with the people who make me laugh like kuya Aris.

18 . Third week of duty I was assigned in Picasso pantry as a steward. This time I realized that many of us doesn’t mind if we have lots of left over’s. every time I will hear that it makes me giggle. foods from the functions and buffet breakfast. It makes sense now that it is really hard to wash plate especially if the waiters already need the flat wares. I don’t need help from anyone because I can do it and I can manage to do a chore that is given for me. But I don’t have any rights to say it to the management because it is their law that every left over must be junked. This week gives me the time to get to know all of the people working in the kitchen they have different stories and different personalities but above all that. Actually I enjoyed a lot being a steward even though my hand looks like a hand of a 77 years old man I feel relief because now I can prove to myself that I can do a lot of work especially multi tasking. they are very accommodating and they are always checking on us trainee if we are still okay and giving us words of encouragements. Three weeks done and there are more weeks to come. it is very hard to work o your own especially if I need to wash plates that are bigger than me. All of the left over’s will be junked as soon as it reaches the kitchen. One waiter will say. There are lots of people in the world that doesn’t have food o eat and then here we are wasting a lot of food. On my first day of work I don’t have any one just myself because Ginette didn’t make it. I am with my buddy and we have strategies also if there are lots of plates to be washed I will be the one who will clean I and she will be the one that will arrange it. Being in the kitchen for 1 week I saw different kinds of foods. Kwin its okay it is just trials don’t be mad at life just smile.delicious it’s their job to make us alive I guess. orders.

I feel nervous when the ship roars to life and after looking at the window and seeing the beauty of the Philippines it is indeed a wonderful training ground. and it’s our first day of duty. After our duty. We are asked by the crew to clean the area by sweeping the floor and picking the garbage’s thrown by the passengers. We 41 . Second day. We are assigned in the orange mid section of the ship or the mega value and tourist accommodation. In the girls comfort room Andrea and I are assigned to mop the floor and to clean the mirror. we roam around the ship to be more familiarized but before 10pm we must be in our respective cabins.emergencies that can possible occur inside the ship. In this accommodation the guest shares the same bathroom or comfort room. We were near in our destination we are about to disembark in the vessel all of us are excited because we can now see the beauty of Cagayan De Oro City and we’re in Mindanao. we are 6 in the group our STO divided us into 7 groups. the call time is 5am it is too early most of us are not a morning person so our tendency is to make sure our alarm clock is set earlier than 5. The tendency is that the smell inside comfort room is not good. It’s not bad at all but later it is getting worse than I’ve expected there are some passengers that will not flush the toilet after they use it. We are all excited and scared at same time because most of us are first timers. In my first duty I got the opportunity to talk to the crew and some other passengers some are foreigners from different side of the globe. Most of us are tired and exhausted because of the whole day seminar. First day of duty and I am late. now I realized that it is more fun travelling by sea most of the foreigners is telling me this. I learned that you don’t need actually to travel by air just to be relaxed. We are 6 in the cabin and it is time consuming because all of us are not comfortable with the bathroom.

He told me that it is for her grandchild that is studying in Cebu. The common problem I encountered on that day is that there are some passengers who want to swap places with other 42 . We were assigned in the orange section super value aft section of the ship. Cagayan de Oro is not a typical city that I imagined it was like a province that has mall no a city at all but all I can say is that they have better malls than in other cities. We’re like tourists and we enjoy every bit that we are in the land.disembark from the vessel an we are now in Cagayan de Oro . We are assigned in the green section bow part of the ship as a trainee we are helping the crew to give directions to the passengers that are not yet familiar with the ship. After 4 hours they found the bag and the old man kept on saying thank you to the crew and to me for being hi company and doing small talks. After three days in the vessel I’m proud to say that I memorized already the numbers of bed and how to look at the ticket to see if what accommodation are the guest staying and if there are free linens. He is travelling alone. We are first introduced to the accommodation it can cater up to 198 passengers. Most of our Cagayan trip was about the yummy Pastel we bought many for our relatives especially for my mom and dad. he said he works hard to buy all that stuff and I in my mind I prayed a lot. we have lots of pictures for our documentation and I am happy because I am with my friends. double deck and airconditioned the orange aft is bigger that the orange mid ship. the happiest part of being a seafarer is that you have the freedom to roam but be sure to come back on time r else you be all alone in the city. I feel sad because it is the common problem especially with senior citizens he waited patiently for his baggage he doesn’t have anything only his wallet. Back in the ship at 10pm and we are ready to face Cebu City again. We go to Ayala Mall and it is beautiful feels like I am on the other side of the continent. There is one old man who lost his baggage. hoping that the crew will soon find his things.

And I’m proud to say because of being calm and talking to the guest with good manner problems is always solved. I 43 . On the next day we are assigned to the front office. horizon café is the fine dining restaurant in the ship it caters to the passengers that accommodates the cabin and the state room. while we are in our fantasies about the bird one crew told us that it is also their past time to watch the birds or the dolphins. soft drinks. Breakfast time and the restaurant is in full blast there are many guest that time and because of that lots of guest waited outside. extra rice. Next in line is the economy dining saloon of the ship the busiest and almost all kinds of people you will meet them here. After lunch there are no more work to do so we decided to go out and just look at the sea. It is amazing to look at them while finding their food. At first I was totally shocked and shy because they are all shouting and it goes like this “extra rice! Barbecue! Tapioca for dessert! Soft drinks! Mineral water! “So they are all shouting I need to do this. candies and many more. mineral water. but this time we are not just with our team but also with the other school. we saw lots of white birds according to my group mate it’s albatross. We also pray the Rosary for our safety voyage at sea. and after that we are also reviewed on the works done in the front office and how we can get the attentions of every passengers.passengers. Our next duty is the first class dinning saloon. In the economy dining I was assigned to sell barbecue. They all know that I am a crew so they keep on complaining that matter to me. I experienced to greet the passengers with my team. soup. tapioca. Before we started our work we are reviewed on the parts of the ship again. Passengers that are in the green/orange and red accommodation can also eat in the first class hey will just add 50 pesos to avail the food.

In this duty I saw different faces of people different races. We can’t please anybody. I heard different dialects and I was wondering how this crew handles this and how they can handle emergencies in case there is. Our professor Ma’am Milanel once told us that there are different personalities of people especially other schools well she’s right. 44 . After our duty I earned 600 pesos not bad for a first timer like me. Quick mart is our last duty we roam around and sell different kinds of snacks and drinks no one is buying it because most of the passengers are against the price it is indeed expensive. This time I’m enjoying what I am doing I gain a lot of confidence and I gain fiends not just with the same school but in other school. we have different outlook in life and raised differently all I can say that all Trinitians that time act accordingly and we just put in our minds that we are here to learn not to make anything the school would not be proud of.enjoyed it a lot. In our stay in the vessel it is really not good to see people laughing behind your back or giving you a stubborn look.

luckily I understand it and I helped her she is very thankful and was very glad that I was the one who assist her. So as a trainee I make sure to listen attentively always put a smile and be confident in that matter everything will be okay. I have my own work strategies that I will just finish my task in a short period of time. She asked some OJT from other school but they don’t get what’s her saying because she speaks bisaya. I have the tendency to over react on things and make it a big deal especially if all of my 47 . I can do double tasking.Problems Encountered and Solutions Made There is an old woman with baby and asking for directions. But some guest tries to understand that not every crew knows their dialect. I am friendly and easy to be with I make sure that I will gain more friends after the training. Strength and Weaknesses of the Training My strength is that I am flexible and fast. her room is in the red section. I have a positive outcome that I always share it to others. if my duty was in the morning I’m not able to wake up on time. I am confident s that every task will be smooth and easy. She’s trying to explain it to me. Most importantly I have God. He is the source of my strength and He is the reason why I am here. I think that is the common problem most of the crew are Tagalog and sometimes there are miscommunications that leads to misunderstanding. Some of the guest are intimidated about how the crew will explain their room assignment. My weakness is that I am lazy. I make myself a part of the team for that matter I will not be shy or left behind. I know that she’s tired and exhausted so I tried my best I can understand a little bisaya because my Mom is Ilongga.

ang I suggest also that they must use the newest trend in technology. And for that the students can comply their requirements on time. they must be ready when that time mates are against me. it is hassle free for the guest and for the crew. Well I cannot please them when that matters come my way I will not over react again maybe I will just talk to them. 48 . As a beginner they have a good training ground so they must hire more trainees. I will suggest also that they must increase their man power what if there are no more OJT in the hotel. Suggestions and Recommendations I will suggest to the Hotel that they make marketing strategy in the internet in that matter the hotel would be patronized by many.

To the parents of the students that will take the cruise. 49 . and to my department COLLEGE OF HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM MANAGEMENT as well as to the student who also taking up Hotel and Restaurant Management as one of their choices in undergoing training if they need and want to have a good training. I recommend the cruise ship to the students of TRINITY UNIVERSITY OF ASIA . it is training worth paying for. I will recommend the hotel to the guest who is looking for a nice place to stay overnight or more because of its cheapest room rates but has a good and very comfortable room accommodation. and to my department COLLEGE OF HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM MANAGEMENT as well as to the student who also taking up Hotel and Restaurant Management that being a seafarer is a good job you have more to learn and will surely boost your confidence. Aside from the different places there are so many things to learn inside and outside the vessel. I also recommend this to the other student that has not yet have their hotel and still finding that this hotel has the best training ground for beginners like us. I recommend the hotel to my school TRINITY UNIVERSITY OF ASIA .OVER ALL CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATION This training that I had undergone has a big impact in my life as a student and hotelier in the near future.
