1/5 Nuevo ♥

“Are you Jin?”

That is how we first met. During the crazy Hong Kong rush hour, inside Admiralty MTR station. He was by the door inside the train, and I was on the platform waiting for the next one, because it would be too inconsiderate to squeeze thy fatness into the already jam-packed train.

That was his first 3 words to me, after looking at each other funnily and questioningly. After all, we just read each other’s blogs and see glimpses of each other’s photos online. And really, these times, you can’t be sure whose images people are posting as their own. I’ve seen too many Brad Pitts and George Clooneys named Frank Choi, Dave Torres, Justin Cheung, etc. etc.

“Yes. Are you Jason?”

And that was it. The beginning of a friendship built on mutual love for food.

1/5 Nuevo is where we had our first dinner together.   



Now if Jason the Bon Vivant thinks he is lazy, lazy and lazy, then I am lazier, lazier and lazier. Actually, I am The Laziest, because I am not only posting this 10 months and 10 days after this dinner actually happened, but I am also not going into details about the food. No, this is not blogging, I know. This is procrastinating. Fine, leather-whip me. I don’t care. I’m doing this the easy way by giving you the link to his entry.

Oooops. Hehehe.
