This was consider our last dinner in Ho Chi Minh City. We had it on a cruise ship.
A few woman sailors welcoming guests at the jetty
YX and dad had a photo taken. The only time where YX smiled properly for his photo taken.
In most of the restaurant we ate, rice were being served in this type of big bowl
Obviously, the food were LOUSY. Initially, we thought it was a buffet spread but turned out to be prearranged. The fried chicken were so tough (just like being fried over and over again) and the vege were overcooked. Those fried stuffs were nothing to shout about. Just some cold storage stuffs. We were being served with soup too and that does not taste good either.
In the middle of our meal, the cruise departed and some fireworks were being lighted at the jetty.
She was asking if anyone needed to light up a cigarette. There were 2 man walked forward and the lady put the fire into her mouth whereby the man will light up their cigarette from there. And of course, have to pay her tips.
I noticed this beautiful fish-shaped cruise from the other side. Too bad I used flash and the picture did not turned out nice.
Overall, we did not enjoyed the cruise at all. We were not full and requested for the guide to buy us some burgers from the fast food outlet on the way back to the hotel. In Ho Chi Minh, there is no McDonald but they have Lotteria (a Korean brand fast food outlet) selling burgers. Click here for more info. No photo was taken because we wallop everything once in the hotel room. The taste is similar to any fast food outlet's burger. If you like fast food, then you will like Lotteria.
After the burger, we had a walk around the town. We had a great experience by crossing the busy road without a guide! haha....it was challenging at first, but we remembered what the guide told us. WALK and DON'T RUN. That was her advise. Because the motorists will slow down and some even stopped for us to cross. Then we realized that was how the Vietnamese crossed the road. They WALK in normal pace with both their hands swing relaxingly and the motorists eventually stop for them to cross.
Busy road full of motorbikes
