........I put on 2kg! -_- This is the latest update from me after New Year. I bet some of you might be in same case like mine. Hic hic, gotta exercise more to reduce some weights. Just within 2 weeks time, I did nothing besides eating 3 main meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) a day and all were heavy, not including those cookies, sweets, junggies etc.... Every where i went, i ate. Not because of I'm big eater, because people invited, thus I couldn't deny. So once a year for whatever excuse, reunion, year end, new year celebration, farewell, welcoming dinner...Eat! Eat and Eat! I didn't have time to take all photos abt the foods as some of you have requested earlier. Just a few! Here it goes! This was the first lunch in my student's house. Reason for the party: New year celebration and also welcoming me back home! Hmmm, so sweet! Don't look at the food! Look at the wine bottle that I was holding! Fantastic, man! It's very uniquely tall and tasty :D
See the size of it!I love see food and the prawn there was specially cooked for me! :D Am I so special? ;)
The 2nd day, I was having fish- steamboat with 3 dancer friends in the afternoon. Believe or not, only 1 fish but 3 of us couldn't finish it. I didn't know what is the name of this fish and I swear if i could reckon any type fish. To me, they are all same. Just to eat! This one is PINKY fish! Yah, because it's PINK, can? Lolz OK, here you go! I went to 24hours BAMBOO restaurant with my students after dancing class. The specialty of this restaurant is it's made by BAMBOO. Yah! Vietnam is the country of bamboo, so....Take a look at the wall there! Unique, huh? everything is made by bamboo, from the chair, the table to the dishes, etc... Here are their food specialty. I called this one is "Sandy prawn". It was grilled with lemon grass and sea-salt. Very crispy, tasting deliciously buttery and not salty at all! Introduce to you this is the river crab steamboat. I was introduced from my students that this is the only restaurant sell this kinda steamboat. I didn't know how good it is until i tasted it. Just perfect! Phew, done with eating part. I don't want to talk abt it so much or else, all the slaver will be flooding my blog, lolz. Usually, when i go back Vietnam during New Year, there are few main things that i must do: 1st: eating, 2nd: shopping, 3rd: visiting friends, relatives: 4th: going to temple to pray and 5th (occasionally): teaching dancing. But this year, in my plan, there was an Ad-hoc activity! Brought my family for photo shooting on the occasion of 30th ++ weeding anniversary of "this two": My Dad & Mom :D My bride here! And I was just a bride maid :( God, Mom looked so much prettier than me. If only i would look like her -_- Cam-whoring for a while when waiting for my mom have the make up done! Got a lot more nice photos coming up later! I can't wait to show you guys, but i need to get it from the photographer first. He's still doing photoshop for all. Few friends saw this photo of mine, they said it doesn't look like me? lolz, or I looked so much different. Yah, because i changed the hairstyle again, from curly hair to straight hair. I want to hair salon, did some washing, cutting, straightening, treatment... like this: Plus having my manicure done It costed me: RM35 ++ in total You don't laugh! This is the truth. And this is the final artwork after all:So, that's about it. I was confident with my appearance to start up all friends, relatives visiting during New year. We went for karaoke singing on New Year Eve as usual. I don't know why in here, youngsters like to sing Karaoke so much during this time.
Believe or not? This is real flower bought from the new year market that i snapped photos above? I'm not sure about the pricing. This 2 weeks time holiday, I finally had chance to go with my peeps to ballroom dance club! It was extremely crowded! My gosh, so many of my friends came too just to see me after 3 years plus, hic hic...So touching! You see the dance floor. Was it amazing?
Ok, if you don't know what they are doing. They are actually dancing bachata! :D This type of danceclubs are everywhere in Hanoi. They open 3 times a day (morning: 9am- 11am; afternoon: 3pm- 6pm and evening: 8pm- 11pm) and only play ballroom dancing: rumba, chacha, samba, paso, tango, waltz, slowfox, quickstep, bachata, salsa, disco....Too much huh? Each time entering, you just need to pay RM5- 6 for your drink and you can dance all day long, lolz. Bloody cheap compare to Msia :D I wasn't dancing that much coz I was busy.... taking photos and also too crowded, I just joined them for 3, 4 dances. That's it. It was so much fun there! After all, the last thing i did before i left Vietnam was visiting the temple for praying. It's kinda a traditional custom of Vietnamese every new year. This time, i was with my aunty to visit a new temple near by my hometown. A newly built temple who owned by a 39 years old monk. And surprisingly, all monks there are young, i don't know why. Here you see! The whole view of this temple! I found out that this temple has a wonderful scenes to do out door photoshooting. How i wish i would have had the professional camera. Huh! I used my pinky camera only! So the quality is just like this: (Of course it could be done only after i've done my praying session, okay? I'm still good prayer) The last camwhoring before i left Vietnam, it was taken at the ancient open air market in Vietnam. The market was built in the years of 1945s if i am not mistaken. And also, the last meal before i left Vietnam. It was a small farewell lunch by my dancing friends. And...another 12 hours later, what was I doing? Of courses, i would say "Good evening, Kuala Lumpur". It ended my trip! I'm blessed, i'm happy and i'm very fresh!
