Yes I’m typing this post all in Hanoi city. I was supposed to put an update for my MIA for the past few weeks but unfortunately only get to login now. Dont ask me why cos its a long story to begin with so i’ll carry on with my current issues in Hanoi.

Arrived in Hanoi on Satuday evening and Minh was waiting happily outside the arrival gate. (its a good thing we have friends over here, saved us so much hassel) After all the hugging session we happily got into Hanoi city in a cab that scared the hell out of me. The driver kept on honking like noones’ business and thats the begining of our culture esperience in Hanoi. Got to the hotel after alot of honkings, checked in..(wow hotels here provide free Wifi, only 2star. talk about developed countries, can anyone tell me any hotels in Malaysia that charges less than RM80 and provides this kinda services???)

Then dinner time, Minh brought us to this nice lil restaurant that serves all the typical vietnames dishes. The ambience was cozy and the food….SUPERB!! (photos will b up when i get home.) Nothing much for the night so we retired earlier to bed.

Spend the next morning walking around near the hotel as both Minh n Nghiep working till afternoon. Got ourself a map of Hanoi and started walking and mind u the map pretty accurate. Had lunch by the Lake and enjoying the nice sunday morning by the lake with alot of kids running around and couples hugging and getting intimate in public..What a scene rite, thats the culture according to Minh.

In the afternoon when both Minh n Nghiep finished working, they took us for motorcycle ride in the city and then off to dinner by another lake..woot super yummy seafood and very reasonable price. Best thing of our trip so far is the ride around town. Freaking scary how Vietnamese people ride on the road man. Almost everyone in Hanoi owns a bike and the traffic system damn complicated.
