Home early. Itinerary. Need sleep. Goodnight. 🙂
I didn’t really shop that much in Vietnam because I did not really intend to, but I was able to bring back home with me a few cool things.
Wool Cover – Up
Got this for 400K Dong (P880), though my mom got hers for 250K Dong (p550) only when we got back the next day! 😦 Haggling in Hanoi can be very tricky, I must say. Nonetheless, I love the color and quality. It’s thick, and it really looks nice with anything.
3 – in – 1 & Ground Coffee + Coffee Drip
Vietnam being the second coffee capital in the world, their coffee is my favorite! For 35K (P77) Dong Cafe Hue ground coffee and 5K (P11) Dong coffee drip, I feel like I’m still having a taste of Vietnam in my own home! So rich and delicious! I couldn’t remember how much the box of 3 – in 1 coffee was, but it tastes good! I only have one sachet left as of this writing. 😦
Longer Than Usual Mirror
80K Dong (176) for this mirror. I’m not really sure, but I haven’t seen a vertically long mirror in Manila like this. What we have is square – shaped, and half the size of this. I like the print, and it’s more convenient because reveals my whole face when I use it.
Woven Tissue Holder & Storage
I got this tissue holder for 250K Dong (P550). Aside from its design, I like it because it has a firm, thick and sturdy material. Others I’ve seen are lousy. My mom and I also bought a couple of pieces in pretty different colors & designs and sizes, which we also gave to our friends as Christmas presents.
Compact Plastic Utensils
I think this costs 70K Dong (P154), I’m quite unsure. This is perfect for me because I like bringing food to work, and I also like eating in the car. It’s light because it’s plastic, and very handy because it’s foldable. It already has a pair of spoon and fork, plus a pair of chopsticks.
I’m almost running out of coffee, so I hope I’d be able to find somebody who will go to Vietnam soon! 🙂 There’s really nothing much to shop for in Vietnam. The best things from my trip were really more of the experience, people, culture, nature and food. 🙂
Christmas is my favorite season. It’s festive, and it’s the time to celebrate how good God is by giving back, and simply by being thankful.

2016 has been rough. I’ve had my highs, and I’ve had my lows. 2017, be ready. 🙂
On the first day of this year, we are still in Hong Kong, and we spent it by meeting our relatives who are living here in Central. We had coffee, shopped a bit, had dinner, walked on the streets of Lan Kwai Fung, and drank Tsingtao. Also today is the first time that I’m wearing my dad’s cool sweater.
Coffee at Starbucks – I was looking for the must – try coffee in Peel Street (Hazel & Hershey), but my cousin said it’s too far.
First heavy meal of the year!
Street art along Queen’s Road…
Lan Kwai Fong – Here we drank beer and passed by a club…
Love the rose gold shakers and mixers…
Today was all about firsts! How fun. I’m excited for the rest of the year. I haven’t really set my resolutions in place, but day by day, I do my best in everything I do, and I just think about love and goodness all the time. Listing down resolutions is a plus, but I believe that those are the basic things to remember: to do your best always, and to do things in love and kindness.
