What you think of my Shirt ?

Had a quick trip to Saigon to spend some time alone with my dear ex-girlfriend aka wife and also to checkout Ho Chi Minh city in more details.

There are a lot of people around the globe who still thinks that Vietnam is very back dated but here are just a few things which surprised me. For instance … the picture above was taken in a shopping mall in the city.

Now … for Lambo having their showroom in the Mall … that shows that the spending power of locals here is really strong which is sign of a strong economy of the country.

In fact, you can even get large concept stores by Samsung showcasing all their gadgets in one store. Most likely that the income of individuals working here is decent.

The Coffee culture here is picked up a lot as well. Vietnam has been an attraction for digital nomads and therefore a lot more coffee outlets such as these with really fast internet … about 50 – 100 mbps is available almost everywhere for free.

Well .. not only coffee .. but everything else. Now this cheesecake was just delicious and had to be in my post. This drink .. i really wished I’d written down its name … its some sort of soya based drink with jelly in it.

Ho Chi Minh has really become a city that does not sleep. This was take about 1am in the morning and it sure looks really busy.

There are many eateries around Ho Chi Minh and some of the best ones are really hidden and out of sight, as you seem to find it in some alleyway then boom ! a really awesome restaurant serving amazing food is there. My suggestion is to checkout trip advisor

Time really flies when you are having fun. The main reason for this trip is to spend time with my wife and Its her birthday … so Happy Birthday @ireenchew …. the love of my life.
