"My Day out in Hong Kong with Shawn Mendes" by Laiba Naseer

We asked our readers to write an essay titled "My Day out with Shawn Mendes". Here is one of the entries. It has not been edited.

There would be nothing holding back Shawn after he has visited just the most magical place in Hong Kong, nope not Disneyland but something extra mystical – the 9 ¾ Café, the Hogwarts of Hon Kong which is located in the heart of Hong Kong – Mong Kok.

It’s no shocker that Shawn is a die-hard fan of Harry Potter. I mean, he once tweeted that he bought a Harry Potter Robe and also five wands. He kind of also has a mini Harry potter Shrine back home. Obviously, that’s why I deem that visiting the 9 ¾ Café would be the most enchanting day out with Shawn Mendes!

So what exactly does the 9 ¾ Café offers? First things first, let’s talk about the good stuff – the scrumptious food! All the dishes are named after mythical creatures and charms from The Harry Potter series. For instance, we can now munch on the Romanian longhorn pumpkin pasta. I mean, of course there won’t be any dragon meat in there! Personally, I would love to try the Forbidden Forest’s Aragog Salad, yum!

What’s more, drinks wise, we get to (finally!) sip on the prominent Polyjuice Potion!! Imagine how wicked it would be if we really got to take the form of another person! And of course, what’s a Harry-Potter themed café without having Butterbeer, on top of it, its alcohol-free, double thumbs up!

Enough about all the food because, not only is my mouth watering, but also my stomach angrily grumbling. So, what makes the Harry Potter-themed café more Harry Potter-ish? Of course, the interior! With the various broomsticks, portraits of wizards, and wands stuck onto the wall, along with candles hung on the ceiling (for the perfect lighting), and with the luggage trolley half-submerged in the wall. This is what enhances the atmosphere, this exactly is what makes it a Harry-Potter themes café!

I can’t wait for Shawn to take a trip down the ‘magical lane’ to the 9 ¾ Café with me!
