This time, will post in the Food category. Read on...

Met up with friends for a drinking session last night. We agreed on drinking at a friend's condominium unit but since no one bothered to bring anything to eat, we all decided to eat at a buffet before starting the drinking festivities.

I didn't want to get full so fast so I devised a game plan which is to create 'food plate sets'. I wanted to eat and taste all the dishes that the buffet will serve so I paced myself and tried smaller portions of each dish.

First up is my desserts set. I had a sampling of their cakes. My favorite is the cream pop that was shaped like a duck. I also had some local rice cakes. Too bad, I didn't get any pics.

Second set that I had was what I call my dimsum set... siopao, dumplings, and noodles in beef broth. I'm a big fan of siopao, it is a steamed bun with meat fillings. Yummy!!!

Third set was my burger and tacos set. A bit of American and Mexican food didn't hurt anyone. The side dish of flavored fries was great to tie up the flavors in this plate.

I had more food plate sets but by this time, I felt foolish taking pictures of my food. I can never understand its appeal. Perhaps I'm not a real foodie at heart.

There were different pasta dishes, ice cream flavors, and everyone's favorite summer cooler, the 'halo- halo'. I had all of those and then some.

When it was time to, we decided to pick up some donuts. I think we ended up with six boxes. Sweets to mask the bitter taste and after effects of our chosen poison for the night... beer.

That is a different story that I have to tell at another time...

Is this the challenge where you have to write in every category? I may try that sometime, but probably not anytime soon. I think I'd wind up failing lol.

Yes, that is it. It is a good challenge to do as it has many benefits in my opinion.

My colleagues and I love eating in buffet style, all you can eat restaurants and yes, it's a clever idea that you fill yourselves up before starting the beer marathon. I just hope you don't have any hangover today :)

That is quite a variety of foods to eat in a short period of time. I hope you weren't sick before you got to your beer.

That is so cool! I am having my morning coffee and hoping for my ears to become deaf for some screaming and yelling happening in the house because of some morning blues. I hope to have great sleep, because since yesterday I am still up.

allen0187 My Panamanian friend introduced me to Dim Sum, and of all the places I first tried Dim Sum at a Buffet! Nice article.
