Woke up feeling all lazy and since it was our last day in HCMC, we just wanted to take it super free, super slow and super easy.
As mentioned earlier, we decided not to visit anymore war museum because it’s just too depressing so we went to the Fine Art Museum instead. To increase our art-level or you know.. naik our how to say, macam more atas if you go to art gallery those bah! You get what I mean?
… but, *shy* I got bored like after 30 minutes. And again, Bobby insisted in visiting every corner and thank God we didn’t eat breakfast before that so I acted all grumpy and cranky to escape. Hehe. *stick tongue out*
The above painting is my favorite! It was stated that photo taking is not allowed but then I saw other orang putih tourists doing it pun. I only took this one and only photo in the museum nia I swear!
The title of the painting, if I’m not wrong, is “My Life”.
Unlike some other abstract paintings that we totally had no idea what messages were those artists trying to convey (which is why we spent like almost 1 – 2 hours there.. because tak faham so kept tilting head left and right to figure it out).. this painting couldn’t be anymore literal!
I just like clean fresh lines and paints.
And also, there’s some paintings we thought a year 3 student can do better. Like, drawing a cartoony cat with a house.
It was already our 5th day in Saigon and we’re a bit sick of Vietnamese food. And so when we saw the the Dai Do Noodle restaurant, we’re so happy!!!
Saigon Square is just 4 shops away from the noodle shop and we’re so happy that we bumped into another landmark… Er, we weren’t using the map, that’s why we didn’t even know where were we.
Saigon Square is just like Ben Thanh Market with air-condition. More or less the same lor the stuffs they’re selling.
Oh oh! I bought a really nice pair of jelly shoes (MONOBO!) there! Best purchase in HCMC!!!
Only about BND15 but so so so so comfy. Am now wearing it for work and everywhere I go! I just checked the website and it’s from Thailand.. anyone going to Thailand soon? Can help me get another pair?
And we walked walked walked all the way back~
Stopped by Ben Thanh Market again to see if there’s any other souvenirs to buy.
Went to Tutti Fruitti, which is just across Ben Thanh Market for some cold yogurt!
It’s all DIY!
Get a cup, choose the yogurt ice cream you want, twirl it yourself, add toppings and get it weight at the counter!
They don’t charge by the flavors and toppings you choose, they charge by GRAMS!
Meaning, if you only want a small portion, then you’ll be charge lesser lah.
No rugi one!!!
Went back to our hotel for a power nap.
Walked along Bui Vien street and ended up doing manicure and pedicure~
The manicurist also kept kacau him asking what colour he want to paint on his toe nails.. HAHHAHAAA!
Had dinner at the “pasar malam” of Ben Thanh.
Super steady. In the morning, those are just some ordinary roads.
Then during evening, it evolves into a pasar malam with seafood restaurants!!
I just don’t know how they manage to set those tables, tents, aquariums and stoves up just like that, everyday! Oh oh, and signboards!
I ordered Sapodilla out of curious. Never knew what it was still I took the very first sip…
Itu Sapodilla ialah buah CIKU lah!!!!
In Chinese, it’s 人心果! (Human heart fruit)
Wah seh Ciku! Never knew you have such fancy name leh!
While walking to Sheraton hotel..
The street, jam-packed as usual…
Note: It was on 22nd Dec, a Tuesday night!
Everyone was so hyper! Taking picture with all xmas decors.
Babies and pet dogs all in santa suit!
It was so so so merry, and crowded…
These 4 kids damn cute can! Possessed by the power of PSP, swaying their bodies left and right, giggling and laughing all the way. They didn’t even notice if there’s anyone looking at them.
Eh, not afraid of kidnappers kah?
See, so happy kan?
So cute I wanna bring them home!
Jam-packed department store.
There’s a really cool wooden antique car in displayed and I really wanted to take picture with it. But I was too weak in taking chances to quickly get the space. And, there’s a skimpy-dressed woman (red hot mini dress) posing around the car (sampai macam sleep on the car like those calendar girls okay!) with her geeky partner snapping photos non-stop.. Very what the eff….
Finally reached Level 23 of Sheraton hotel!
Romantic or what…
A seafood meal followed by cocktails…
then ice creams and custard apples…
THANK GOD WE DIDN’T LAO-SAI THE NEXT DAY!
