English = Leave it in hotel, Sign Language Required.
Welcome to Ho Chi Minh City.
It's such a relief to know that my Vietnam friends could converse quite well in English.
Being really nice host, they so kindly obliged to my request on going around town endlessly covering every street and letting me press on the horn for fun sake! *LOL
And off we go the very next morning to eat fur... ('Pho') a.k.a Beef noodles
First stop is the Notre Dame ...... built in the 1800's by the French.
Here's us at the park
Vietnamese teens gather here at nite and over the weekends for their extra-curricular activities. I was in there checking out some bands and while walking past a classroom, I overheard an English tutor 'lecturing' some students and he went like "U must let heart english SPEAK.. heart let out SPEAK engrishh" ....OMG!
Anyway, just a few blocks away was another tourist attraction
The interior of the post office with it's retro 1940's architecture and unique half-pipe roof design. Reasonably priced souvenirs are sold in here.
If there's any place that one shouldn't miss while touring HCM, its gotta be this:
As seen in this pix, I was having this dessert served with fresh fruits IN a coconut. Not sure if there's any of this in KL, but lemme know if u've had any around town =)
Will be checking out more on the interiors and Hanoi on my next trip to Vietnam.
There's only so much for now, more pix in my Facebook album (click!)

Casually walked around in Mid Valley on Merdeka day, somehow went into Sony Centre just to look-see..........
and came out with this:
Totally no plans on getting a laptop, moreover an overpriced VAIO ...but it's Full HD specs was just too tempting to resist. xD
Packed with loads of
junks media softwares from Sony, this baby lives up to every expectation of a Sony product.
It's definitely my first ever most crazy unplanned purchase!
