Vietnamese silk ’embroidery painting’

Be prepared to folk out 4 digit (RM) for all these painting but seriously I am not an art person!

60

Check in to Hotel de I’Opera Hanoi

61

Quite a decent hotel in the centre of city

62

Thick mattress is common in hotel. How about high platform like this one?? A lil high jump skill is needed! Lol

63

Dad refused to eat street pho so we random walk in to a restaurant just behind our hotel.

Quite happy with the food though but not the cake.

65

Opera house

Very special?

64

What attracted me is the traffic opposite opera house.  Notice no traffic lights at all!  We (pedestrian) just risk our life crossing the roads.

66

Had a walk surrounding Hoan Kiem Lake.

67

Visit the Chinese temple although left with half an hour time

68

Mummified turtle wtf! Not sure if it is real.

69

Hoan Kiem Lake – view from chinese temple

Passed by a very grand building and suddenly recalled the popular puppet show so suggest them to watch it.

70

Puppet animal

71

Puppet human. Oh no those human are real!

72

Dinner at opposite hotel

Beef pho! Quite delicious but still wondering how come the soup base is clear unlike those we had in Australia with thick beef stock. Maybe the beef in Australia is fattier.   读万卷书不如行万里路.  This statement is so true!

73

Had an enjoyable coffee time at Highland Café before we head to the airport. Please come here for Vietnamese ice coffee (no other coffee drinks).

I think this trip is quite successfully planned (by me) and please agree with me if anyone of you read it :p

Ok I end my post with how to make a nice cup of Vietnamese coffee.

74

Oh sorry!  Before that, let me share some local produced beers.  Kampai!

75

Here you go!

53Can see now? Lol.  If you are good swimmer can swim thru the hole to China.

54

Day 2 lunch on the boat

The chef put in so much to prepare every meal and my mum feel in love with him.

After lunch, we headed to Cat Ba Island for cycling!

55

Au Co organic form

56

Organic tomatoes =)

After Cat Ba Island, we c ontinue with kayaking and nearly died wtf. Kayaking is so hard especially for people like me with small arms.

Today is super hungry with excessive of sports and if the chef still serve the 4-course dinner in petite size, we might murder him and practice cannibalism Lol!

God safe him!

59

Succulent BBQ buffet!

Our buffet spread!

Prepared with some artistic touch by the chef.

Birthday cake surprise for my dad again!

The night end with lots of foods and laughter =)
