Ho Chi Minh City {Day 2}


Day 2 of the HCMC visits, we went to the War Museum. The surroundings were full with tanks and planes from the war. We spent 1 hour and half here.


By the way, I realise, Vietnamese loves to hangout and have a drink  by the sidewalk. With the small chairs and small tables.


Anyway, that's me and my colleague Ben and Khoon Seng in front of the museum. I just bought the top by the way prior to my visit to Vietnam and shawl sponsored by my sis, Skewed Sunday :P


When I came in the museum, there were walls full of photos from the war with stories written below describing each and every one photos. The photos were pretty graphic and some of them really made me want to throw up and some of them really touches my heart especially ones with babies because they reminds me of Hariz :(



On the bottom right of the above photo, you can see a glass box and inside is actually a fetus of an unborn babies with deformations caused by the deadly toxic called Agent Orange that left Vietnam citizens cripple, deformed and some even deaths.


The "Tiger Cages" where they torture prisoners in this weird and sick kind of way. Like pulling off their nails, electrocutions, pulling off their teeth and chopping of their heads!




Kid's playing on the sidewalk like no body cares.


I saw this makcik selling these hats outside of the Museum and I asked her "can take?" showing her my camera and she suddenly just froze. LOL. and I quickly snap but I didn't buy the hats tho :P


Trung Nguyen Coffee is one of the famous coffee in town. You can find it almost everywhere here in HCMC. The way the serve it is by pouring the coffee inside the can above the mug and let it drip into the mug. Then we drink it! The verdict? The coffee taste way much better and kinda sweet.


Saw this spiral straws in the restaurant we went. They make a very nice combination with the colours and shapes.
