On the night of January 24th, 2008, I moved from DN to HCMC. During the days that led up to this event, I spent some time thinking about the things that I would miss about the city.
I met a lot of great ppl here and I really wish (as always) that we could just transport all the ppl we love into one fabulous location to live in forever and forever…but alas, that’s just a dream that will not happen 🙁 🙂
Highlights that I will miss dearly include:
–my motorbike repair shop…These guys fix up Cathy (aka my motorbike) like nobody’s business and they’re so cheap (overall pre-SGN repairs = 100,000 VND = $7) and friendly and trustworthy. Tis always service w/a smile. 43 Hai Phong Street
–my church and ENGLISH mass!!!! The priests, choir, and sisters have always been so kind to me. IT’s at 10:30 am on Sundays at the pink cathedral FYI.
–my Korean roommate and the delicious and cultural enlightenment she’s brought into my life = movies, celebrities, and food!
Did I mention that I love Korea? Onhi Hye Jong and Boram-shi are the absolute best-est ppl 😉
–motorbiking sans traffic! The ride to Hue is kinda, ok super, dangereux but the village and beach roads to Hoi An can hardly be beat….no more cows in my paths I think 😉
–the darn good DNian breakfast! My fave is bÃºn riÃªu (tomato-crab-based broth w/noodles) and a side of cold sá»¯a Ä‘Ã¢u nÃ nh (soybean milk..correct me if my VNese accents are off…I still suck!). All this goodness for about a buck! Gotta luv it 🙂
There’s more stuff but I must jet…my mommy’s in town so can’t be blogging while she wants to par-tay n’est-ce pas?
