Chinese hard drives are made out of potato chips. Am I seriously about to go thru my third one in a month? This format better work or I’m working off my external from here on out. Or til I can get to an apple store.
Bars in QD are usually full til about midnight, that’s when the Chinese start dropping like flies. By 3 it’s mostly westerners with a couple of Chinese guys passed out in a corner. Haha. They can not hold their liquor for the life of them. They have this little thing called *ganbei* which ultimately means *chug/drink it all*. but heres the thing, they do this with everything: beer, spirits, red wine, and combined. After about 45 min, theyre completely hammered. It is chinese culture to ganbei with you, buy you all the liquor and pretty much try to drink you under the table, while failing miserably because us westerners are quite accustomed to drinking since bars have been a part of our culture since god knows when.
I remember being invited to a friends house for dinner and her dad just kept going and going, mind you, I had to meet up with friends at a bar after this dinner, so I was trying to pace myself, enjoy my beer, leave room for the food, but he kept saying no no no ganbei, you must ganbei, Im like look man, just save your beer cause I can drink like a fish and youre just going to pass out, and sure enough he was hugging the toilet like it was his newly found best friend by 11pm. I, of course, continued on to the bar. That is where I saw one couple, yes both the guy and the girl, being carried out like freshly hunted game by their limbs, covered in their own vomit. 3 chinese guys offered me drinks, and of course they ganbei, and next thing I know 2 go to the bathroom and never come back out. Lets not get into what I see outside my apartment complex at this time. Literally everybody and their mother stumbling back home, women being carried, youd have thought there was a natural disaster and red cross needed to be called in. Hilarious.
