Random interesting conversation with a Singaporean Indian from Lakeside who is an Auditor here in Dubai. He was at Wagamama with his son for ramen. We chatted for a few minutes in Singlish about the inability of recent Indian immigrants to Singapore, to integrate with local Indian Tamils and the propensity to reside in east coast ghettos.
The manager of the restaurant was from Bali, so chatted up in Bahasa as well.
I also took a recommendation from him for a good Malaysian place here.
