(0:33 – 0:40)
E: Let’s go on to talk about friends now. Are your friends mostly your age or different ages?
S: No, many different ages.

(0:40 – 1:00)
E: Why?
S: Well, it changes. It’s basically because I am not from this place. I am from Bag Nepal. And when I came here, I met people from my country as well as people from different places at work and at different places. So, they are all over the place.

(1:00 – 1:16)
E: Do you usually see your friends during the week or weekends?
S: It depends, but I see them more over the week, I think, for friends at work… after work drinks and things like that, so, yeah, all throughout the week.

E: OK. The last time you saw your friends, what did you do together?
S: We went out for a movie last Saturday. There was this interesting movie that we heard was out on due date, so, we all decided to go for it, and it was pretty nice.

(1:35 – 1:57)
E: In what ways are your friends important to you?
S: Oh, they are very important to me, because I hate to be lonely. I need to talk to someone every now and then, because I can’t just sit. Not to say do nothing, but I need someone to confront and talk to. So, I hold them. I given them a great importance in my life.

(1:57 – 2:12)
E: I’d like to move on and talk about food and cooking now. What kind of food do you like to eat?
S: I like Asian food quite a lot because its, it… because of its taste, its variety and things like that.

(2:12 – 2:24)
E: What kind of new food would you like to try?
S: That would be French, pure French food I would like to say {Why}.

(2:24 – 2:37)
E: Why?
S: I’ve heard a lot about it, but… because of its taste, its originality. So, but I haven’t got a chance to have the original French food as yet. So, yeah, I would like to try that.

(2:37 – 2:42)
E: Do you like cooking?
S: No, that’s not just my cup of tea, not at all.

(2:42 – 3:21)
E: Why not?
S: I don’t know. I have been here for three years now, and I am a single. I live along with my friends, but it just does not come into me, even when I enter the kitchen, I think. I go grocery shopping, and I do things, but once I enter the kitchen, I just end up making some noodles and stew many food, and that’s it. I end up, I end up having that. But I have never gone into cooking. And one interesting thing, I don’t know the taste of salt. So I, I don’t know. I… If I cook, and I call my friends over, it would be a disaster.

(3:21 – 3:32)
E: What was the last meal you cooked?
S: That was, that was tough. Pu… Just noodles again, I would say… no, pasta! Two minutes food again.
