Memorable visit to Vietnam..



                Ramai dah kawan2 have the chance to visit Ho Chi Minh City. now its my turn.

                                           With friends at KLIA.

                 Ho Chi Minh City..here I am.On the streets there was barely room for anything else.banyknya motorcycles. Kereta boleh di kira dengan jari..Mostly all of the people wear sunglasses and masks on their faces...debu banyak. Formally known as Saigon Ho Chi Minh city is the largest city in Vietnam.


            Some pictures from  the internet. How people of Vietnam suffer during the Vietnam war from 1945 to 1975. The war killed millions of Vietnamese civilians. Leaving Vietnam in ruins for decades.




The use of chemical weapons by the Americans affected the local people a great deal.Millions suffered from serious diseases ,  with malformations and severe defects of the immune and nervous system.



















   Here at the Cu Chi Tunnels we saw how tunnels were used by the Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding spots during the war.

           Beautiful laquared paintings. All done by handicapped Vietnamese .They are victims of war who earned their living by producing these beautiful work of art.



                     The Central Post Office. the biggest one in Vietnam. a remnant of the French during colonial time in Vietnam.


             Inside was quite dark. After a quick look around here I am ambik gambar..hehe.

The second day..to Mekong River.Of course beli la topi..nanti sunburned pulak..dah la kita gelap nanti tambah gelap ..

            On a private longtail boat ride along the Mekong River..



         On the sampan along the canals under the green canopy of the water coconut trees...I was scared stiff at times bila sampan berlaga dinding...adoi takuuut.


             Here we were given some honey, and bee-pollen to try. bought some although I already have at home..My friend Lee  from Toronto here I follow your advice.bee pollen jangan lupa. haha. There were many cottage industries here. I like most is coconut candy factory..delicious candy.

             Lastly BenThanh market. Everything is sold here.You name it..semua ada.souvenirs, local handcrafts, food, clothes, fruits.  Here you see posing among the flowers of Vietnam..
             I learn one thing here in Vietnam .Modern technologies versus organized determined human beings...human beings won..People of Vietnam...I salute you..

  10. Hi Indamarya, sorry have not dropped by ealier, but still recuperating from my brain surgery. Only had the stitches and staples removed yesterday.
    Wow! You were in Vietnam.
    I really enjoyed looking thru all the pics, very well taken, and especially your pics...
    Indamarya, you sure one real beautiful lady! Macham bintang film.
    And I love your outfit, very classy...and stylish.
    Can see you have a flair for fashion.

    I guess you all mabuk tengok all those motorcycle traffic there. Anyway, I guess you had fun shopping too.
    You have a great week, stay beautiful, simpan satu lagu dalam hati.
