April 8, 2009 – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
Our bus was mugged by motorcycles amidst a traffic jam!!
Everyone should somehow know that driving a motor in Ho Chi Minh gives a higher probability of accident. This motorcycle-city has 50 accidents every day. However, they still rule the road. Haha! Much like how people in Manila.

I love fruit shakes. Not because Im on a healthy diet, but my parents raised us with healthy food and drinks, and that includes fruit shake every Sunday. This is Avocado shake in Pho 24 Resto, along the quiet and calm street of Ho Chi Minh.

I saw this boatman waiting on his boat and watching the tourists having the first initial excitement for the yet-to-be-adventure boat ride in Mekong River.
The Mekong River is the 13th longest river in the world. The river runs in a number of countires: Tibet, China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. It ends at Mekong Bay in Vietnam.
April 9, 2009 – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
Seeing hundreds of motorcycles every day honking and driving in between cars with fast speed fed me up in Ho Chi Minh. If you think you can just bump a motorcycle in the Philippines because they look defenseless, think twice. In Vietnam, motorcycle is the king of the road. You wont be able to bump one motorcycle only with a little turn of steering wheel but dozen of them. There are approximately 50 motorcycles accidents happen in the city everyday.
April 10, 2009 – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
This is my younger sister, Lala (we nicknamed her as Lalabonejing), wearing a Vietnam flag top. She is really sweet and still a kid at heart. We were in Tan Son Nhat International Airport, the largest airport in Vietnam. The airport closes at 9pm so people need to arrive and check in before the closing time. Although I did enjoyed this spacious airport where I can hide away for a good read or sleep, our flight was 12:30 am. We need to wait for 7 hours! I can finish an entire book and get bored afterward. Haha.
