#100happydays - Day 38
It was rainy heavily and I wasn’t able to go for a run tonight. So I decided to take on a cooking project. I made some Goan fish curry. #BrownBoySoulFood #IMissMummy
#100happydays - Day 37
I went home on Sunday to visit my family again. My mum made some kulfi (Indian ice-cream). I think that this is her attempt at getting me to move back home.
2 more weeks to go!

Domestic abuse. Lol JK. We were play fighting and this ended up a bit bloody. Mr Boo didn’t realise that I was in real pain and kept laughing for a whole minute.
It was good because I used that against him and got him to do things for me.
#100happydays - Day 35
I invited a group of friends over to the apartment for drinks. We were too loud and that made my housemate spend the night elsewhere. Oops!
This was the first time that I met Mr Boo’s high school friends. They were a real fun bunch who got along well with my #homohomies. Ergh I wish my high school friends were the same.
We had a dance-off to #DrunkInLove: Rice fag&hag VS Curry fag&hag.
The night ended at King’s Park with a beautiful view of Perth City at 2am. It was freezing.
#100HappyDays - Day 34
Today we met up with EC and his friend from Singapore. We had dinner at Donburi, a new Japanese place in Perth. I am a true curry boy and I do not understand the fuss behind eating raw fish. And why is it so expensive?? Anyways, I just got a Udon noodle soup.
It was nice meeting the friend, who I found out is exactly my brother’s age! #Gayby (Gay Baby) I am so old now haha.
#100HappyDays - Day 33
I am getting a bit slack with posting these updates on the relevant days.
Anyways, today was not so much of a #HappyDay. Mr Boo got a bit sick and stayed at home. After visiting the doctor, he found out that his asthma returned. I am guessing that it was the carpets at the place where we are staying that aggravated the situation.
Anyways, this monkey stayed at home and then helped me make some pasta for dinner.
#100happydays - Day 32
This Tuesday night was the fourth Men on Men workshop. The topic of discussion was HIV awareness.
The night started with a talk from a 30 year old heterosexual woman. This was a real eye - opening experience because the general population’s ideas around HIV revolves around “risky” homosexual sexual practices. Here, we had a female who had caught the virus when in a committed relationship. I always knew that anyone could be infected with HIV but it was very confronting when I actually met someone outside the gay community. It just shows how real the virus is.
She talked to us about the discrimination she faces in everyday life such as being able to date someone, being able to travel to certain countries, etc. But she also brought along a different perspective. She wasn’t drawing a crippling effect of her situation. She stated that if she controlled her medication and lifestyle, then she could easily life to the ripe age of 80 or even 90.
It was very inspirational listening to her and her outlook on life. Now, she has quit her “meaningless” mining industry job, she took a massive pay cut and is currently a peer educator.
Above, I’ve attached a picture of sexual practices from most to least risky when it comes to HIV transmission.

Today Mr Boo had to drop his car home to get it serviced, he then caught public transport back to the apartment. Those who know Perth, can vouch for the fact that it isn’t all that excellent after hours.
Anyways he was waiting for a bus for quite a while and from the apartment, I took this photo of him walking home. It was a rainy night and I’m glad he got home safe.
#100happydays - Day 30
Mr Boo’s family makes him go to church on Sundays. That’s when I go home to visit my mum. I’ve realised that I’ve been staying away from home at a very unfortunate time. Due to recent storms we need some work to be done at home and I am not there to help out. So I played by part when I went there this weekend. I had lunch with my mum and then we went for a 5km walk with her at Kings Park and we climbed DNA tower. It was nice spending that time with her. I don’t want her to feel that since I’ve moved out, I’ve forgotten about her.
After she went home, Mr Boo and I went to an Indian restaurant for dinner. Because he had a craving for Indian food.
