Last day of October

Hi, I'm back on Malaysia ground (although my social media might remain in Vietnam for a few more days) 
Can't believe a month of travel has officially ended. 

Two more months to 2016, I have yet to achieve my 2015 resolutions that I never made. Made resolutions previous years but always failed to achieve them lol so I gave up. Maybe I should do it next year, and really force myself to take it seriously. But let's face it I'll never ever become 50kg or less again haha. 

Enough of crap. Time to cut the slack and get a job, time to get back in shape, time to work hard. (Think I had been saying the same thing all this while)

Ahh I sidetracked, this was meant to be a travel post! 2015 must be the year I travelled most, I'm thankful and happy about it. 

So let me start a bit about Vietnam. It was quite a random decision made during one of AirAsia's promotions. For some reason I don't remember, we bought a 20kg luggage for the return trip, and inclusive of insurance it was altogether RM520 for two persons, thanks to Mr Teoh who paid for my ticket! Whee :D.

Excitedly waiting in the boarding room.

We booked the hotel taxi which was on promotion, or as told by the staff. Can't help feeling scammed as they charged us at 15 USD while when we took a taxi on the day we left it was less than 7 USD. Note to self: be a smart traveller the next time. 

The first banh mi of the trip, you literally see it anytime, anywhere. And it is good! So good, we bought 3 banh mi kosong each to bring home.

And uhm, the traffic situation is scary, whoever said so wasn't exaggerating! But I'm thinking Malaysians can easily adapt to it. Just show your hand and walk straight, the motorcyclists will skillfully swerve away from you.

Spot TM tower! Hahaha. This was outside the Ben Thanh market, which feels very much like Central market to me, it wasn't even 7pm and stalls were either closed, or closing, so we left it for another day.

Happy boy with his first bowl of pho upon arriving. I think I'll make a separate post on the food we had.

After dinner it was pretty much just walking around getting to familiarize with the area and then packing for the one night getaway to Mui Ne.

I promise to be back for more updates soon, while memories are still fresh and warm.

Ending the post with the first cup of Vietnamese coffee, because when in Veitnam, eat pho, eat banh mi, drink coffee right?
