Happy Chinese New Year from Vietnam!

Just got back from a fun-filled, stress-filled midnight watching 15 minutes of fireworks at Ho Chih Minh.

Finding a taxi was just a complete pain. To our surprise, Vietnamese peeps are just thieves especially if they know you’re a foreigner.

For eample, a Vietnamese sandwich which costs VND10,000 cost VND20,000 tonight!

A taxi which costs VND40,000 costs VND500,000 (USD25.5). Are you freaking me?!

Anyway, it’s so unfortunate that a country so beautiful could have so many unethical citizens? The list just goes on and on how locals try to take advantage of the foreigners every chance they get.

Oh well, it’s like 3am in Hong Kong and an hour earlier in Vietnam.

Happy Chinese new year ahead!


About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
