    Two down.

    Young Khmer folks often won’t ‘fess up to having a boyfriend/girlfriend (to the general public, anyway) until the engagement is sealed and the wedding invitations are printed up. If you’re sharing a home with them though it’s a lot easier to spot the signs.

    Note that this says ‘co-worker’ conversation. If he was a close friend he might be crying into his soup and telling me his family has plans to marry him off.

    Ah I love this! Well done. I think it’s cool how you’ve used the same faces and changed the clothes, meals etc. But I totally think you should be using chopsticks dude!

    On a different note, are you left-handed?

    Aww, man, I thought you were hitting on him at first.
    Yeah, are you left handed, John? I am! I really liked the shirts changing, too.

  4. John Weeks Says:

    We use chopsticks *and* knives and forks here. We’ve got more options than in the West!

    I think maybe I should put a calendar on the wall behind them, to show the time element more clearly, which should be several months. I wrote it in ad hoc phonetic Khmer because nearly any local/foreign web user in Cambodia knows enough Western script to decipher this.

    I’m right handed by default but fairly ambidextrous; straight, but not narrow minded.
