I'm Off to Vietnam... I'll be Back in a Jiffy!


My long weekend will start tomorrow, Thursday, as I will set foot on Vietnamese soil for the second time but this will be my first time to be in the capital city of Hanoi. I enjoyed so much my first trip to the charming communist country Vietnam last August 2006 despite of the synchronize chaos of over 6 million people of Ho Chi Minh City (a.k.a. Saigon) that I can't wait to visit the country again. I'm expecting Hanoi to be less chaotic than Ho Chi Minh City merely based from the population which is only 3+ million.

I'm very excited to visit the famous Halong Bay which currently in top of the New 7 Wonders of Nature survey. I'm also excited to partake of the various noodles, vegetable wraps and other local delicacies as they are so cheap but very delicious and full of flavor.

As almost everything in Vietnam is cheap I'll bring an extra duffel bag which I intend to fill up with local groceries and of course souvenirs. The last time I was in that country I bought several packs of Vietnamese coffee, tea, Colgate herbal toothpaste, assorted candies, instant noodles, sausages and other preserved meat products, dried plums and fruits etc. etc. etc... I'm satisfied with all of them as the quality are mostly good.

This is all for this week... I'll be back in a jiffy!
