Ho Chi Minh City - Day 2 (26 Aug 2010) Part 1

Day 2

- woke up around 7am
- Had the best breakfast of the whole stay in Vietnam because they served bacon. ^_^ The remaining days have got no more bacon and breakfast is more or less the same type of food. Bread, porridge, noodles, etc

Plate no. 1 - French toast with jam, salads, fried potatoes and bacons.

Plate no. 2 - Vietnamese beef noodles. I did not add the mints and some other kind of green leafy vege because I do not like the taste.


Our private van - merz brand. Noticed the flower in front? The guide told us that every 1st and 15th month of the Chinese calender, the Buddhist will pray (at home) to their ancestor(s). After praying, they will place some flowers in front of the car they drove, in believing that their ancestor(s) will protect them.

Note : In Vietnam, 40% are Christian ; 40% are Buddhist ; 10% others.


- 1st stop, we visited the War Remnants Museum. Read here for more info. Or here for a virtual tour.

YX was overjoyed when he saw huge planes , helicopters, tankers and live bomb.
