Time offset using HttpDateParser


I am trying to extract date by parsing string,


        Date eventDate = new Date(HttpDateParser.parse("2009-07-21T21:30:30-07"));
        SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("MM-dd-yyyy hh:mmaa");
        String temp = dateFormat.format(eventDate);



My device is set to Pacific time (-8)


on running, I get temp as 07-21-2009 2:30 PM


Date is fine, but how/why is offset of 7hr in hours? i am expecting 21:30 as hr.


How can this be rectified?
