Queens Wharf, Newcastle

When I was drawing around Queens Wharf, Newcastle one day, someone demanded to know where I was from. He started with a greeting I did not understand, perhaps a hello in some Asian language, then said “I have been to Singapore, Indonesia blah blah blah, where are you from?” I said “Melbourne”. He was so upset, he said “I was just making conversation” and stormed off. Mm, not a great way to start a conversation by demanding that I be friendly.
