Well, this was sorta my official first outing with my camera. I guess I haven’t wrote about it, but I got a Canon EOS 400D/Rebel XTi. I’ve been wanting to have a camera for a few years, at least 4, and well, I saw opportunity and got it.
Paul invited me to cook together today, he’s an indonesian friend a met thru Luke. He’s cute and he’s friendly, we also share similar interests, cooking and photography. Along came one of Paul friends whom I first met today. His name is Edward, he’s from Hong Kong. I first thought he was 17 years old, just because of the way he dressed and acted, totally non pretentious and laid back. Which is not very common in gay world.
We took a lot of photos in Chinatown, downtown Brisbane, there was a group of people performing for some festival, this was one of them dressed in a costume portraying a sorta santa claus-like character who brings gifts for the children, I feel ignorant because I have no clue what his name was.
After that we went briefly to some very nice markets in James street and came back home to cook. They cooked prawn and pork dumplings, and I made two sauces to go with them, Alfredo and salami rendered Marinara. Everything went nice, and they were very reassuring about my cooking. I think it’s something to do with asians that is customary to praise people a lot, either that or I’m a good cook. =D
It was very interesting to see how relaxed they felt at my place. They kicked off their shoes and were laying on my bed and seems they felt pretty much at home, like if they’ve been my friends for a long time.
Paul mentioned that Eddy liked me. Wonder what should I do with that.
