So, I went out to my favorite restaurant tonight, to grab some take away food cause I was lazy and didn’t want to cook. The people inside are so very friendly, and I think they are perhaps a little proud that The Australian has chosen to be a regular in their place. After a bit of mime and dictionary usage, they understood that I wanted some food to go, and five minutes later presented me with the dish that they knew I liked, the Five Coloured Chicken Threads dish. Unlike chinese food at home (which comes in little plastic boxes, for the non aussies out there), the genuine chinese just dump the food straight into a plastic bag. If they like you, they’ll double bag it to prevent leakage (they like me!).
When I got home, I jumped online as I was waiting for Michael to finish whatever it was he was doing in his apartment (I’d taken on the responsibility of introducing him to The Fifth Element, as he’s NEVER seen it before, and he calls himself a scifi buff!), and who should be on Messenger but the Charming Matthew From Edinburgh, the delightful host of this here blog. Snaps for Matthew for the blog, by the way! *snaps*
After copious amounts of teasing about his accent, though I’ve never actually heard it, I went on to make him exceedingly jealous over my yummy food. He suggested, at this juncture, that I take a photo of it, so that he could at least SEE how yummy it looked. So I did. I was so pleased with the result that I have to share it with the world, not just Matt. So here it is:
I’m getting better with chopsticks!
Are you jealous yet?No comments
