Saigon also known as Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam


Where: Saigon/ Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam
When: 22nd until 25th february 2012
With Whom: My great friend Ewa
Why: We bought the flight tix a year ago for rm160 return. Shopping is heaven in Vietnam

We arrived HCMC around 2pm, checked in at MayFlower hotel which is located in district 1 but a bit far from Ben Thanh market. It's a great new hotel with great service and accommodation. The room is spacious. There's a free internet service at the lobby. However, to get to Ben Thanh market, we have to take a taxi ride.

This is the most recommended taxi service in HCMC.  A metered taxi which is convenient

Spacious room

If you're a shopaholic, Ho Chi Minh City is a great place to shop. It's like Jalan TAR except that you're dealing with Vietnamese and the transactions are in US Dollars, Malaysian Ringgit and VDong. There are a lot of things to find here. From souvenirs to cloth to jewelry to foods and vegetables. Everything is here,  you just name it.

Ben Thanh Market with lots of alleys

You can find everything here, from accessories to clothes and jewelry.

The roads are mostly filled with motorcycles. It's their main transport there. You rarely see cars and there are lots of taxi; tourist's main transport.

This is the gold shop where we changed our currency. It's cheaper to change Malaysian ringgit to VDong here than in Malaysia. *RM100=650,000VDong*

I'll write what I bought in Ben Thanh Market later.

Wassalam & cheers.

Drama Queen #1


Today I drove my sisters to the nearest mall because they wanted to buy something for school. *What a good sister doing the sisterly duty* 
We entered Watson and my sister Sumaiyah bought chocolates. It was a birthday gift for her friends. Then it struck me. In my mind, I thought why didn't she buy me my birthday gift? Why did she have to buy her friends birthday gifts?
So I asked her: Sumaiyah, where's my birthday gift?
Then she replied: I'm giving these gifts as they'll be giving me gifts on my birthday.
I'm like: Wha Wha Wha Whattt??
Then the drama started; I said: How could you do this to me? To your own sister. You didn't give me any gifts but you're going to give gifts to your friends?
And the drama continues: Who took care of you when you were little? Who washed your nappy when you were small? Who cooked for you? Who took care of you when you're sick? Who paid you to do the house chores? It was me.... *giggles*
In the car, she turned on the radio. The drama continued: Who took you to the mall to buy things? Whoooo?? LOL. Then Sumaiyah sang me a birthday song saying it's exclusively for me as she doesn't sing it to anybody else. *hmmm* Then my other sister said that I could be a good actor. And I'm like: This is real babe. 
Sumaiyah came to my room to take a pair of scissors. The drama continued again: Who let you borrow stationary? Did your friend do such things??

The result: I still didn't get a gift from Sumaiyah. *so sad*
I love being a drama queen. Happy belated birthday to me!!!

Wassalam & Cheers.

Confession #2


I like him since I first met him.
I still like him.
I like him because of his good looks.
And because of his charming looks.
He's tall, muscled and a basketballer.
He used to be my friends' boyfriend but not anymore.

I sometimes stalk his fb as I added him as friends since 2008. *yes, 5 years ago*
I have never talked to him. Like never ever in my whole life.
I remembered taking a picture with him way back during uni years.
It was one moment that I remembered until now. *LOL*

I once did bump into him when I was working in HUKM.
I was super shy, so I ignored him and walked away. *anyway, he doesn't even know me*

Who is he?
You'll never know.
It's a secret that I'll never tell.

Wassalam & Cheers.
