HOME SWEET HOME

Today someone complained that I have never blogged: "You never update your blog. I waited for so long, 2 weeks already still not update yet" Hahahha... Honestly, I'm so happy to hear that because I know some people love to read my blog every day. And please don't blame me if you are addicted, (*I'm just kidding*) Actually, as you guys know, I'm currently blogging about my life. So it depends on the mood and my free time as well. But since you said that, now almost 1am and tomorrow I have to work, I still blog for you to see as I promised to you. :)

I wanted to blog about my Vietnam trip once I came back here, but there are a lot of things I need to follow up with plus some new things are more interesting than my own ones. Thus, now only I share with you guys about how my trip was. First, the weather was damn cold. I think I was not lucky because it's not supposed to be as cold as the last few months as it was February, Spring season. But never mind then, it's over so far. So you guys don't feel weird when you are seeing me in winter clothings. OK, starting from the airplane first. This photo I took on the way from Malaysia to Vietnam. The weather was just pretty good, the clouds look pretty and clear.

You can see your country below :D Beautiful huh?
As I told you earlier, during the first 2 weeks, most of the time I was staying at home, cook, cook and cook. 2 meals a day for 8 people, you believe? This is my food, I cooked. Delicious? Tasted good too!

Then only the day before New Year, I went out shopping with my brother, my father, my mom (different people, different day). This is how the night market in Vietnam was during New Year.
  The world of handbags and hats. I bought 2 hats and 1 handbag home, but unfortunately I left it in Vietnam :(. So old already, my memory

  The crowded street with thousands people and all night long stores with a lot of goodies, accessories for New Year. Especially, this one is so unique...
I bought this "Effiel tower" home :D Is it pretty? Nice for decoration, I think ;).
And then, we went back to our hometown for a Pray our ancestor. Every time I went back to my grandmother's house, I would always go to visit my grandfather as well. He is "resting" here. Then we went to the farm to buy a New Year tree, I don't know how you guys call this, but the Vietnamese name of this sounds similar to Mandarin. We call it "Dao hoa" Then, I went to meet up some of my high school friends. It's has been such a long time we haven't seen each other...
New Year Eve, I went to sing K with my brother's colleagues.
They are so funny, humorous. The most important thing is THEY ARE SINGLE AND AVAILABLE. Who wants? I introduce to you :p That's all about before New Year. After New Year? Morning, eat! Lunch, eat! Evening, dinner! It was repeated the same from the 1st day until the 7th day. My Goodness! I felt like I couldn't breath and I thought I was putting on weight at least 2kg. But luckily, it's not :D. The most successful thing I've done in the last New year was I had a chance to visit a very famous temple which is a Bronze temple (fully made of bronze) far away from my house 60km. That temple was so super powerful that so many people who died on the way back home after they had offended this temple area. I have never been there before until last new year. Many people said that you wish could become true if you are really dedicated and sincere to the Buddha. The other special thing about this temple is it's located on the top of the mountain which is higher than the ground 2000meters and almost vertical mountain, not the type of diagonal way easy for you to claim. However, every New Year, there are more than a few thousands people from all over the country visit here. You can see how crowded it was with a narrow stone staircase. If one, unfortunately fell down, the whole chain will follow possible (dangerous)
It's almost there! 45 mins left. To climb from the bottom to the top, it took you around 4hours at least. Yeahhhhh! Here is it! The Bronze Temple!
It looks simple, but it's actually not. All made of real bronze which is very high value. It's said that there was a thief who come to this temple before and he tried to steel the Buddha statue to sell (earn a lot of money). But he was unlucky because he slipped on the stone staircase and fell down into the chasm, then died immediately. How super-powerful it is! Here, there is 1 very big bell which, if someone rings the bell, it will rain later 15 minutes. Perhaps, it's too near to the sky. I don't dare to ring it out loud. Just try to make some small noise to catch Buddha's attention and....TAKE PHOTO :D (YEs! Always) I don't know about others, but to me, after visiting this temple, I felt so peaceful and released. I can forget all the bad things happen and obviously I felt much better, happier, more optimistic like some intangible spirit pushed me up. And I could get ready to come back Malaysia for the next 2 days and could be stronger to face a lot of new things. End of the trip is the photo taken on the cloudy sky in Vietnam


Hanging up in the sky and below is the forest! The feeling was so nice but also so.....scared :D

  Introduce to you, this is my beloved son. Serious! :D I want to blog more, it's already too late, 2.02am now and tomorrow I have to go to work early. So next time then.
