A Fun Saturday Evening

17 04 2011

Lately I’ve been either too lazy to blog or been busy doing other things like organizing my parents trip to China in the summer, which had plenty of blog material but like I said, I was too lazy to write it up.  Anyway I’m back now, raring to go.

Yesterday started out like any other ordinary Saturday, with no plans to do anything, so I was expecting quite a dull day apart from the lovely weather we’ve been having.  It soared to 31 degrees at one point so going outside then wasn’t very pleasant.  Anyway, I received a call from a classmate to go out for dinner so I agreed and an hour or so later we had met up.  It turns out it was my classmates birthday, so he arranged for 8 of us to go out for dinner to 金汉斯.  I’m not exactly sure what type of restaurant I would call it.  They had a buffet consisting of fruits, some salad, some cakes and bread, chinese food, sushi and no-so-nice pizza.  They also have meats on skewers that the waiters come to your table to cut up for you to eat, though the portions were small for each one (for example you got one chicken wing).  There were some questionable meats on offer, and I did try cow tongue, but it wasn’t particularly nice so I won’t be eating that again.  I did manage to get full before all the meats had arrived so I skipped a few of the later ones.

After our meal we headed to karaoke, where I was pushed to sing the first song.  I chose ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis which went down quite well.  Two of my friends decided to do a duet for one song, and I don’t know if they were doing it on purpose, but they were hilarious.  They were singing out of time with each other, and both were out of time with the song, all the way through.  There were plenty of Chinese songs sung (not by me) and a few that I recognised, and I also sung ‘Hey There Delilah’, ‘Better Together’ and I gave the final performance of the night by give an extrodinar(il)y (bad) rendition of ‘Price Tag’ by Jessie J.  My rapping was obviously spot on, and I can totally sing higher notes…
