Hanoi- winter

To answer you all: I'M STILL FINE even though the weather is very cold here in Hanoi but i'm not death yet. I still can blog, ok? There have been some of you sms me to ask: "How are you?" How everything? What are you doing? How is the weather? How is your family?, bla bla bla... So many "how", lolz...and I couldn't reply each because costly :D and am lazy typing again and again the same sms, so here you go! I landed in Hanoi in the afternoon 3pm on 8th becaused after staying in Hochiminh on the previous night. Even in the afternoon, and it was sunny but the wind was still so cool and strong. Now it's the winter time. Luckily there wasn't rain, it was just dry and cold. My parents of course were at the airport with my uncle and cousin. The relatives couldn't rekon me after so long time i've not seen them and i've changed a lot too. Everyone looked at you one kind, lolzzz...(*funny). I had a reunion dinner with all relatives in that night itself. Wah, I ate until my tummy alsmost wanted to explode. I didn't snapped any photos at that moment. Then the next day, I went to visit my ant clothing shop. When i was in chilhood, i used to go back hometown and help her to sell clothing. Was i hard working? Lolz, no ah...Actually, I loved the moment she gave me a new cloth each time she got a new stock, hahahah....They all were very nice. The one i was wearing also from her shop too coz i dont have any winter clothing yet, hehehe. Next day was the day for shopping and friends meeting up. Yeah, as i always said, i love to shop in Vietnam so much. Everything is so cheap and various. I went to the market to buy clothing materials, went to buy fruit, managed to visit my dancing fashion tailor. Here are some of samples. Maybe i'm gonna start a new partnership with this shop owner soon for my fashion business. Some of my close friends were waiting til the evening just to see me. I haven't seen them for 2 to 3 years. Oh ya, picture was taken at my ex-dance partner's studio. As usual, everytime i went back, they had to take me to eat :D Perhaps, they are afraid of i'm gonna forget the vietnamese cuisine :D. When you visit Hanoi in winter, you shouldn't miss the chance to try the steamboat. There are so many type of steamboat that you couldn't find in Msia or some other countries: i.e: chicken steamboat, duck steamboat, vegi steamboat, seafood steamboat is just a normal food here, etc...The one i tried here is duck steamboat
And this is called "boneless grill duck"...
This one is "shellfish soup and vermicelli", my ex-partner took me to eat in the afternoon. This is also one of famous rice noodle in Hanoi besides beef noddle:) but perhaps none of tourists knows if without the guildance of local people. The 3rd day, i came to visit my God-son, you see how cute he is. When seeing a kid like this, i could just hug him whole day, kiss him until he gets angry, lolz....So cute and lovely! This is his mother- a little girl (to me) younger than me 2 years old. We had been staying together last time. She is now a fashion designer too! The next day, I went to visit a temple. It becomes a habit, whenever i have time, i'll go to visit this temple because i felt that this temple is hidenly having a spiritual connection to me. It's hard to explain but yet it's is. The temple names: "Tran Quoc temple" built up on the lake, a very huge lake of Hanoi where couples like to go here for dating and enjoying the wind and the view. I couldn't take any photos inside, so I took the photo outside ok :D. The view from the temple to the lake. This photos was captured at 5pm in the sunset :)
And here i am:
Next post, it's gonna be happening New Year preparation and Celebration as my Dad told me, this year the whole family is gonna travel a lot. So i hope i could have something interesting in this New Year! Btw, thanks for all the text, msg, email...I'm still keeping you guys updated! No worries!


New Year,

We were having so much fun!

Sorry for being not up to dated! I was spending the whole day today just to edit those photos that i took on NYE party! Not so much hardcore activities :p, but it was fun. KL that nite was tragedy crowded. Most of them are teenagers i guess with so many different hairstyle, make up, dress up which didn't look like a normal human, lolz. Something like this: To me, they are just weird. I read the news there are number of boys, gals were arrested on that nite itself due to having sex and drug in a lower class hostel. Well, I'm not their parents so.... none of my business! Ok, back to our party. It turned out to become "Single-ladies night". 7 of us went to Pavilion, got our open air table with windy weather. And we drank, ate, talked, took photos and counted down among thousands of noisy people out there.
My girls under my "make up" skills :D Hey I can be a make up artist, u know?
Our first drink. It's quite reasonable on that day with 1 jug only RM68 for 4 ppl. So we order 2 jugs. I swear if I could remember the name of the drink. All foods and drink names are written by Sapanish language, of course with English sub as well. But perhaps, the owner of this place wanted to make something more special. So i just helped him to name it. Okay, I named this drink is "VOLTA SAMBA" coz after u drink few jug, perhaps you can walk zig zac like the volta step. lolz
Ymmm! Fruity smell! :D
What are these 3 doing? Like never tried this type of drink before, hahaha...Cant wait to taste it. Here you go! My food! Let's me introduce to you! The "RUMBA CUCARACA SPAGHTTI" lolz
and the "RONDE CHACHA"
Lolz, you couldn't believe the reaction of the waiter when i order "Can i have Rumba Cucaraca" He was stunned and asked me "HAH? :-O" Lolz, damn funny you know.
Almost near to the 12, the restaurant gave each of us these toys. You guess what?
Ok, here is the hot glow! I don't know what the hell this one for? Perhaps shaking round and round :D It just looked funny!
Showing off my new nail color for a while :D I don't know what Yvette was trying to do with the string :D And now! It's blowing session. Hey, this is clean blowing game, okay. Do not try to elaborate or over imagine, hehehe :D You see! These 3 ladies were trying so hard :D
12 am: 1 Jan 2009 The Pavilion was full of "gold dust", very shining and beautiful :), full of noise, lightning and screaming. You can see how crowded it was that time.
And here, can you see the firework behind me? Camwhoring last time before we walked back to our hotels for 2nd session, party gals :D
This drink was brought by Yvette, I love every drink that she brought each time we have party: sometimes it's blue color, sometimes orange. If you have 1 pink color, pls keep it for me ok, Yvette? :D The taste is just great! Light but easy to get drunk. We manage to finish this whole bottle after 2 big jugs earlier. Such a heavy drinkers! lolzzz.... Let's me pose with this bottle for a while since it's so nice! After drinking, then we ate again, and talked again: all ladies stories. Wondering what we were talking about???? Sorry, this one i couldn't tell because it's confidential :D
Yeah! Cheer up everyone! Cheer up for a better beginning! Happy New Year all!
