Coffee break at Saigon

A coffee break at early morning of our 1st day of  Saigon.

Finally chaos is over. Finally we can be relieved from life as a prey. 

This old lady was very kind to us. At 1st thought, "Is she kind to us because she wants something from us?"
I can't shake off that mentality of everyone is kind for a purpose after so many days around Vietnam.
Especially of what occur to us when we went to Sapa.

Nevertheless, she didn't ask for anything special other than to pay for our own coffee. 

She even told us the secret of Vietnamese coffee. 
Brew the coffee and left it frozen overnight!

As you see in the photo, coffee is pour out from a bottle and it is thick as malt.

With condensed milk and ice cube, and it is ready.

This coffee break is just a disguise of Hanoi.
Nightmare still continues in Hanoi!
2 person hit me in Saigon market!!!

Hello Habibi

Fun with phone..

What do you do when a stranger called you at 5.50am and call you Maria? 
(not applicable to those whose name is Maria)
 "Wrong number." Hang up.
 Prepare to go to work

Hello, yes, this is AC. May I know who are you looking for?
"Hi, I am looking for you."
Me?... How may I help you?
"I want to invite you to dinner."
.... dinner..I have to eat my dinner at home. My mum already cook for me.... Are you looking for Mr. X?
"How do you know I want to talk to Mr.X?"
I wanted to say because I am smart, but I didn't. Instead I told him I will connect him to Mr. X.

Thanks, Bye~~~
Boss: Why are you so sweet when calling him?
mmm... Maybe can get discount. Maybe have free gifts such as mouse pads, eraser or anything...

Egyptian in Miri

"Everyone here looks like you!"

That is what claimed by my Egyptian colleagues, and this is their 1st time in the country. Fortunately Miri is the 1st city to leave 1st impression of Malaysia in their heart.

"Everyone here is rich, no one walk by the street."

"It is raining, it is like winter in Egypt."

"Why can't I smoke in shopping center? In Egypt, we can smoke in shopping center."
Because this is Malaysia. When I was in Egypt, I have to go by Egyptian law. Same for you when you are in Malaysia.
"So you are taking revenge now"
Yeah, hiek hiek hiek hiek (evil laugh). No smoking for you. 

It is easy to notice us with 2 super tall men. Everyone looks at us because quite loud when one exclaimed that he wants to find a Malaysian lady and get married in Malaysia.

Everyone looks like me here because there are many Malaysian Chinese in the city. Have to admit that some natives have small eyes and fair skin too.

Everyone here looks like me, as everyone there looks like you.
