bombay dreams indian buffet
I had a fun evening the previous night. I woke up at 11am, which was a nice change. A group of us gathered in the lobby of the hostel to discuss our plans for the day. We ended up deciding on an Indian buffet in the Central district. Waleed, my friend who will be traveling with me on the majority of my trip, met up with us. The buffet was better than expected even with a hefty price tag. I ate Chicken Masala, Lamb Kababs, Indian Curry and much much more. After 1.5 hours, we were completely stuffed with hearty Indian food.
Our next stop was the Wellcome grocery store to grab beer. About 7 of us grab a 12-pack each and played International drinking games. I showed the group a few that I learned from my days in college. I then was taught a few French and British games.
After our drinking games, I told everyone about an all you can eat and drink Chinese place in Mongkok. For $60HKD ($7.50USD), we could drink and eat until our stomachs were full. This hidden treasure is a popular place for international students because the owner, Mr. Wong, gives deep discounts to travelers. We ended up staying 2 hours!
I enjoyed the company I was with all night. It’s incredibly insightful to meet and interact with people from all over the world. The group consisted of one British male, one Irish male, two Germans females, two French Canadians males, one French female from the island of St. Barth in The Caribbean and myself. The diversity was outstanding. These are the moments I will cherish while on my trip. Meeting new people and seeing the lifestyle of others from all around the world, makes this trip more meaningful.
