Vietnamese Salted Egg Sponge Cake 🍞 🍩 🍰 
Or "Bông lan trứng muối" is a very popular street snack all around Vietnam. It comes with many types of toppings: salted egg, pork floss, cheese, or even almond... A box with 10 of these should only cost you about 1$ USD. Perfect for this cool Christmas weather in Saigon right now, don't you think?

"Oh do you want some noodles? Yeah please come in, have a seat! I'm just packing up to go home, but there are still enough noodles left to make two last bowls for both of you. How cute... What? You guys are just friends? But you look so well-matched. Hehe, just kidding, sorry for my rudeness. Here you go, not the best fried noodles in the Chinatown, but for your growling stomachs after a long day of work, this is definitely the best right now.  Not bad, huh? It's my family secret recipe. My poor old dad started this up when he was 18, his noodles became super famous around this Chinatown shortly afterwards. Then he was called by the military duty. Gotta leave it all to mom, promised her to return after two years, that they'd give me a younger brother, upgraded their house to 3 stories, and get a car to complete such a dream life of a Vietnamese man, you know: 1 wife, 2 kids, 3 stories, and 4 wheels. And that's the only time he broke his promise... Right in 1968, in the middle of the civil war. Isn't 68 supposed to mean "Fortune and Prosperity" ? Um... Sorry for being too emotional. Oh right, today is his death anniversary! How could I forget?! He must have sent you two here to remind me. Thank you so much, kids. The noodles are my treat! Hehe, thanks again, and take care. Hey watch out for traffic cops, it's a one-way street, and you don't want your noodles to cost 300.000 dong, do you?" 🍜 🍲 🍜 🍲 - Mr. Long from the Chinatown, packing up his fried noodles stall, amongst the Rush of Saigon -

Do you know what kind of tool are they using to catch fishes? You have probably seen fishermen using nets pretty often, but when in Hoi An, Fish Finder is more commonly applied. Here is how it works: It is put under swampy grounds or rivers for one night. Then, fish, soft-shell crabs and prawns swim through the holes in the middle of the long cage, and get trapped inside. 🦀🐟🦐

"ROCK ON! ...with Wesley and Lauren, the best kind of person in the world! Our 10 minutes of goodbye: "Wish you could meet a guy who cooks for you, Linh. Become an IVF champ, go to California and stay with us??" 🤣🤣 They taught me the "rock on" hand gesture, but I was still confused it with the "I love you" sign until the very last moment. They had to fix my finger position again right before taking this photo." 😂

Interesting trivia: Another way to make new friends! 
Do you know that water buffaloes have a very sensitive nose? They can smell strangers from far out and run away when such people try to approach. Here is an unorthodox method to get them acquainted to you and tame them: that is spitting at their nose! ...And after you do, run as fast as you can. 😂😂😂

God of Earth 🌍 🌎 🌏 
Or "Thổ địa" in Vietnamese, is a type of god who takes care of a particular land or region. People say that this god loves playing with kids and eating garlic. Traditionally, whenever Vietnamese people do anything that relates to the earth, such as: building houses, digging ponds, making wells or gardens, expanding crop fields, or making graveyards..., they must pray to this god and make an altar with offerings for him. So from now on, when you travel around Vietnam and see such a chubby, happy figure, with unbuttoned shirts, and a fan on his hand... you know who he is. 😇 🙏 💭 👥

“Hé lô, Măng-gô Cây, Măng-gô Cây?!”
If you ever wander around Hoi An,  you can easily hear lots of those sales pitches from street vendors about the “Bánh Xoài – Mango Cake”. You may think immediately of a cake with mango inside. But in fact, that Mango cake doesn't have any mango in the ingredient. It is just a small mango-shaped cake. The cake is simply glutinous rice flour wrapped around smashed peanuts mixed with sugar. 
Mind-blowing, isn’t it? Be sure to try it when you are in Hoi An! 👌👌👌

Da Lat Old Railway Station 🚂 🚊 🚉 "A.k.a. "Ga Đà Lạt: (In Vietnamese), is a railway station on the Da Lat–Thap Cham Railway line in Vietnam, serving the town of Da Lat in Lâm Đồng Province. It was designed in 1932 by French architects Moncet and Reveron, and opened in 1938. Largely unused since abandonment of the railway during the later years of the Vietnam War, it was returned to a limited level of service in the 1990s with the reopening of a 7 km section of track leading to the nearby village of Trai Mat, operated as a tourist attraction. It is notable for the unique architectural style, which incorporates an overall Art Deco theme with elements of native Cao Nguyen communal houses from Vietnam's Central Highlands." 💐 🌹 🌻 🌲 🌳
