This study is all about street foods served in the vicinity of FEU – East Asia College most commonly known as the ‘hepa lane’. The proponents of this research will also discuss vital information about street foods present in the ‘hepa lane’. Locations of the stalls present in the area will also be tackled including the factors why students indulge themselves to these kind of foods and also on how frequent does a student from the above-mentioned school visits these long stretch of stalls. The recommendations on how to lessen the number of students eating this kind of foods are stated in the last chapter.

Chapter 1
A. Background of the Study
Street food is ready-to-eat food or drink sold in a street or other public place, such as a market or fair, by a hawker or vendor, often from a portable stall. Most street foods are also classed as both finger food and fast food, and are cheaper on average than restaurant meals. (
In the Philippines, particularly in the R. Papa St., selling of street foods is common. Hawkers are no longer aggressive as before, but they occupy the whole street, barring cars from using it. Students of the University Belt fondly called a street lying between the University of the East and the Far Eastern University as a ‘hepa lane’. Obviously, the street is a long stretch of different food carts with different snacks, using different strategies. ‘Hepa lane’ got its…...

Alcohol Consumption in College

...Alcohol Consumption in College Paul Vieira Daniel Webster College Abstract In colleges all around America alcohol consumption by college students is becoming normal. This drinking is happening mostly in the students’ dorm rooms on campus. Students are unaware of the negative effects of alcohol and usually participate in binge drinking, which for men is having more than five drinks in one occasion, and for women is having four or more drinks. In order to help prevent alcohol consumption, the colleges themselves must have guidelines in place to inform people about the dangers of alcohol. Strict alcohol rules such as complying with the 21 year old drinking age are also more hands on activities colleges can engage in to stop drinking. The Norming of Alcohol Consumption in College For many students, college is a new experience where they have to make their own decisions about their daily lives. For many students at first it is a difficult adjustment to move away from family and friends and have to deal with this. With this newly found freedom more and more students will consume alcohol on a regular basis. According to the University of Villanova, “Nationally, a very large majority, about 80 percent, of college students uses alcohol” (Villanova). This drinking is mostly happening on the college campuses inside of the students dorm rooms, or at another place on campus. Though colleges do not endorse drinking for students under the legal drinking age, students find......

Knowledge and Perceived Factors Related to Smoking Habits of College Students at Selected Departments on a Private School in Iloilo City

... as they enter college. Aside from looking for ways to quit smoking, researchers have also conducted surveys and numerous studies on what causes most students to start smoking. Furthermore, they’ve observed that student’s habits and behaviour can determine attitudes and reasons why they currently smoke. It is essential to find out more about the reasons and compulsiveness of the college smoker in order to help the smoker cope with situations that cause them to smoke. College students have had lower smoking rates than people the same age who are not in college, but the gap is narrowing. It shrunk from 20.0% in 1980 to 10.0% by 1999 (Halperin, 2002). Surprisingly, most of the people who start smoking in college only smoke socially and when around others. Most of those who exclusively smoke during parties do not even consider themselves as smokers (Kimberly Waters 2010). The rest who were smokers before they entered college are mostly the ones that smoke cigarettes habitually and by themselves (Patterson, F 2004). For many students, smoking is synonymous to college life. Most college students are bound to enjoy partying and found freedom when they reach the legal drinking age. Many develop the habit of smoking when they are drinking. Students may believe that smoking calms them during high-stress situations like class workload, earning money while at school and social difficulties (Ireland, Jae. 2010). Social statuses were a factor in why students smoke. Areas......

East Asia Culture

...In his chapter, "Consumption in Everyday Life," John Storey discusses various aspects of subcultures. Please identify at least two examples of subcultures that we have studied in this course and provide specific quotations from Storey's chapter (including the page number where you found the quotation) that demonstrate how your examples fit his description of subcultures. Extra Credit (+1 pt): Can you think of a subculture we've studied in this course that DOES NOT match Storey's description? How is it different from the kind of subcultures Storey discusses? In Storey’s article “Consumption in everyday life”, he discusses the youth subculture, and he mentions that “youth subcultures are an attempt to solve problems experienced by the parent culture” (Storey, 133), and youth subculture “refuse to conform to the supposed passive commercial tastes of the majority of youth” (Storey, 138). In Epstein’s article, he presents the phenomenon the Korean teenagers begin to pay attention to the “punk” culture, including the bars (which called “drug”), the punk music and so on. In his article, many Korean teenagers are interviewed and present that the reason that they are interested in this “punk” culture is because they want to identify themselves different from their parents’ culture section. They think their parents’ culture is too far away from their current life, and they cannot find the majority of common points through their parents’ culture. Then, they begin to search a new......

The Use of Ritalin by College Students

...Neuroethics Prof. Kozuch- FA11 The Use of Ritalin by College Students Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, more commonly referred to as ADHD or ADD, is a chronic behavioral disorder with problem areas which include hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity (Rodriguez, 2010). In order to treat such a disorder, cognitive stimulants are used to counteract the symptoms and calm the patient in order to for them to focus. However, these medications have a paradoxical effect on people who do not suffer from such a disorder. This has caused many people, mostly college and high school students, to use them for cognitive enhancement rather than to treat a condition. A study completed by DeSantis and Hane (2010) surveyed and analyzed information given to them by an undergraduate sample, to find out their justifications for using these pharmaceuticals illegally. Of the arguments presented by the undergraduates, there were four main contentions: comparison-and-contrast, all-things-in-moderation, self-medicating, and minimization (DeSantis & Hane, p31). This paper will focus on comparison-and-contrast, and how the arguments are inconsistent with facts and information available. Due to the amount of compelling research completed in this area, DeSantis & Hane completed an additional experiment to concur and elaborate on the great findings found in the other studies; one of which found as many as 34% of the student sample using a form of cognitive stimulant......

East Asia Religion

...Religion has been the backbone of society since the dawn of time. Each region of the world has taken a different approach to religious beliefs and none are stranger then the religions of the Far East. In fact many of the so-called religions of the East are just ideologies created to bring stability to a chaotic and lawless society. In China there is less focus on spiritual beings in comparison to common western religions. Instead the institutions commonly referred to as religions in China, such as Confucianism and Taoism focus on how people act in relationships between one another each other and the forces of nature around them. In contrast the religion of Shinto, the homegrown religion of Japan, has a more western structure, with the Gods and spirits who influence the mortal realm. Shintoism is a religion based on animism and polytheism. Most of their followers are Japanese, they have about 50 million adherents and their legends are collected in the Kojiki. They believe in many “Kami” which is there word for “God” such as Amaterasu the sun goddess and they believe that there are spirits everywhere with a strong belief in ghosts. Shintoist followers have deep respect and admiration for their ancestors and are deeply worshipped and that all human life and nature is sacred. They often refer to this as “Matsuri” and it is one of the four affirmations Shinto follows. The other three include tradition and family, which is the main mechanism for how traditions are preserved and......

Conflict in South East Asia

...Within cooperation, there will always be conflicts and vice versa. In this essay, I will be looking at how conflict plays a more significant role and more is impactful in South East Asia (SEA) compared to cooperation. Conflict is a state of disharmony between two or more parties of ideas or interests. In the context of this essay, conflict occurs when there is a disagreement such as different views, clashes of interest and different views on ideology between the countries. While there is an inevitable fact that cooperation exists within SEA, the impacts that conflicts leave on the history of the region is far more significant than those of cooperation. In the next few paragraphs, I will be going in depth into how conflict has left a deeper indentation on the history as well as more current affairs of SEA. Some countries have conflicts with other in their history, before they learn from their mistakes and work together to reach the level of agreement they have now, such as Indonesia and Malaysia. One major conflict between them is the Konfrontasi, where Indonesia had carried out attacks on Malaysia and there was high tension between these two countries. In December 1962, a revolt had broken out in Brunei to oppose Brunei from joining the Federation, and instead proposed a separate union of Brunei, Sarawak and Sabah (Borneo territories). This revolt had fitted Sukarno’s (former Indonesia’s president) beliefs that independence should only be gained through revolutionary......

Implication of Gender and Social Status to Food Allotment of College Students (Introduction Part)

...and Social Status of College Students to their Food Allotment Population: All college students in the University Belt Sample: Select only five universities, 100 students for each of the five universities Introduction College years are imperative in shaping one’s future. This is the time when students give their best shot in everything and become conscious of the consequences of their deeds because they want to secure life after college. During those years, students do not get the usual time of sleep that they should have. Most of their time is spent in studying for exams, doing loads of school work, attending late classes, and socializing. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health (one of the world’s foremost medical research centers), college students are one of the most sleep-deprived populations. Sleep deprivation has been attributed to different conditions such as weight gain. Sleep researchers from the University of Colorado have found out that staying up late and getting just five hours of sleep, increases a person’s metabolism. Particularly, based on the findings published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in March 2013, sleep-deprived participants burn an extra 111 calories a day. Naturally, this calls for more food intake. As one of the most sleep-deprived populations, college students also have higher food consumption. This means that a relatively large part of their allowance is used up for food. This research......

Consumption Preferences Among College Students

...Research Study Objective The primary purpose of this study is to measure the consumption preferences among college students. We created two categories of purchases for this comparative study: material goods purchases and life experience purchases. The study aims to gather information on which category of discretionary spending is preferred among college students. The findings of the study can be used by many different parties. However, our goal is to be able to create valuable information for companies that want to market their products and services to college students in the Austin area. The research will hopefully benefit these companies as well as their customers (college students) by catering towards the needs of both parties when it comes to consumption trends. Since this is a comparative research study, we did not hold any explicit hypothesis for any sort of specific outcome. However, there has been previous studies and research that have concluded that there is a preference for experiential purchases over material purchases among different samples of the population. These studies have concluded that the main reason behind these findings is that people tend to feel happier from their life experience purchases rather than material goods purchases. They conclude that an experience can create long lasting happiness as opposed to a material good that tends to result in shrinking happiness as time goes by. Another reason is that material goods tend to diminish a person’s...

Filipino Street Food

...FILIPINO FOOD STREET October 25, 2011 // By Caryl Estrosas Posted in: Asia // Food / Drinks // Philippines When in Rome, do as the Romans do—an advice fitting for any travelers visiting a foreign land. So, when you are in the Philippines, testing your palate with the Filipino street foods, while not necessary, is commendable. Not only would it be fun to try the unique local dishes, but it is a great way to immerse and understand the Filipino culture. It is easy to spot street food vendors; where there are churches, schools, recreational parks, or jeepney terminals, you will also see kiosks, makeshift stalls, or food carts. In suburbs, you will see vendors or hawkers with their bicycles or push carts almost everywhere. Street food is a way of life for many people in this part of the globe. It is a source of income for many Filipino families—some vendors testified that their street food businesses enable them to send their children to school. For students and working adults looking for inexpensive meal, street food satisfy them for just half-the price of a meal in any popular fast-food restaurant. Instead of dining in a restaurant for an authentic Filipino dish, why not go out in the street and have a quick bite. There is nothing more authentic than those food in the streets—untouched with the modern culinary flair. You will not only get to enjoy the food, but you get to join the locals who are eating with much gusto. Let you save couple......

Introduction The Meiji Restoration of 1868 in Japan and the Chinese Revolution of 1911 were responsible for producing an enormous amount of upheaval in both countries. Both nations were immersed in social, political and economic backwardness. In this context, both political episodes should be construed as an attempt to reverse decline and set the course for modernization. The main thesis of this essay is based on the notion that whilst there are some similarities between both political events, the main difference resides in the fact that the Meiji Restoration began the centralization of the mechanisms of governance and induced the social and economic modernization of the country. At the same time, the Chinese Revolution of 1911 did not succeed in engendering a sound system of government capable of reversing the country’s decline. The first part of the essay will deal with the main characteristics of the Meiji restoration of 1868. The second section of the essay will outline the main features pertaining to the Chinese Revolution of 1911. The third part of the essay will examine the similarities and......

Change in East Asia

...The 20th century was an era of many political, social, and economic changes for East Asia. Despite all three countries experiencing the many instabilities and reforms that followed after, ultimately stability ensued after the countries became economically stable. Thus, I believe the most important criterion for determining “success” in adapting to modern change would be economic stability within the country. China was plagued by many political reforms during the 20th century. After the Japanese claim to Shandong and Beijing’s sellout became public during the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, a mass anti-Japanese protest demonstration, the May Fourth of 1919, erupted at Beijing University and swept through the country. This gave rise to the Kuomintang and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). In 1945, after World War II, the Kuomintang government was left financially and militarily crippled. On the other hand, the CCP took advantage of the Kuomintang situation and emerged from the war as a stronger political party on the whole. They eventually took over China in 1949 under Mao Zedong’s chairmanship. The transition to socialism from 1953 to 1957 was characterized by efforts to achieve massive industrialization, collectivization of agriculture, and political centralization. The Great Leap Forward (1958-1960) followed after, which turned out to be an economic failure resulting in the deaths of millions in the countryside. After Deng Xiaoping took over from Mao, he introduced the......

Sex Industry in South East Asia

...range of commercial sex work such as prostitution, exotic dancing and pornography amongst others. This industry has now evolved into a global business in the form of sex tourism. This evolution has had significant implications, both socially and economically, in most South East Asian countries over the past three decades. Sex tourism in Eastern Asia started at least as far as pre-Communist China. In 1930s, when Japan invaded China and became the powerful colonist, many women from countries, like Thailand, China, Philippines and even Japan, were forced to become comfort women to serve the soldiers’ sexual needs. The sex industry started to thrive in Thailand since the Vietnam War. In the1950s, when the United States (US) was waging a war against the communists in Vietnam, prostitution in Southeast Asia took off. The number of prostitutes in Thailand increased from 20,000 in 1957 to 400,000 in 1964, after the US established its bases in this country. In 1967, after the Thai government had signed a treaty with the US military, Thailand became the “rest and recreation” place providing this service to the US soldiers during the Vietnam War. As a result, prostitution developed into a largescale business in South East Asia. Today, in most Asian countries, prostitution is illegal, with exceptions such as Singapore and Japan. In September 2004, South Korea passed the Special Sex Trade Law, banning the buying and selling of sex. The objective of this paper is to provide a brief insight......

Strategies for Curbing Truancy Among Secondary School Students in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.

...CURBING TRUANCY AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN ANAMBRA EAST LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF ANAMBRA STATE. CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Background of the Study Truancy means the absence from school frequently by the students. Truancy exist among secondary school student who prefers to stay outside the classroom which now leads to truants. It seems now a phenomenon that has come to stay in our school and institution of higher learning such as colleges of Education, polytechnics and universities as well as secondary school and primary school levels. In the context of school system, Anigbogu (2004) writes that truancy is one who absents oneself from classes or school-functions without permission. This could be inform of late attendance to schools and classes, resuming after some days or even weeks from the beginning of each term and without any good reasons or permission. According to a research carried out by Igbo (2006) on the secondary school students at Anambra East local Government Area of Anambra state shows that truancy is more rampant in our secondary school because the students are in their adolescence stage when they want to be noticed and there by creating air of freedom around them. In other words, a student is said to be a truant if he/she act does not conform to the predetermined rules and regulations regarding regular attendance to school. A truant could be a student who runs away from school to roam about the streets and later returns home at......
