This morning by JetStar we are flying to Ho Chi Minh City with Jimmy/Joanie Lee.
Today is my birthday... and the officer lady in the Singapore immigration noticed that today is my birthday and wish me a Happy Birthday...
The journey was smooth, 07.25 - 08.30 (HCMC's time, which is 1 hour behind Singapore).
When we arrived, some church's brothers and sisters were there pick us up. We went to Br. Tseng Chi Hua (who stayed in Singapore many years ago) to talk about some itinerary.
After checked in at An An2 Hotel, (and again the receptionist girl noticed that today is my birthday...!) we went to Pho 2000 for lunch with Br. Tuc and Br. Leng.
Afternoon we just went out for city tour on our own. We walked from Ben Thanh Market toward City Hall, Reunification Place, Cathedral, Post Office, Diamond Plaza and passed by Independence Palace, War Remnant Museum and then back to hotel by taxi. We took a nap until dinner time..
Evening was raining... and we went out to book our bus ticket to Muine at Sinh Cafe, which is only a few block away from our hotel. The ticket from Saigon to Muine is U$5.00 or VD80,000. Then we had Pho combination for Bagio and Spicy Beef with Bread for me. Since the rain did not stop, after dinner and some shopping, we just back to hotel and I update this blog...then go to sleep.
