My Last Ride.. Hoo-Rah!

We will miss you Hanoi!

We will miss you Hanoi!

It’s been more than 5 months since I’ve updated my blog. I’ve been pretty busy with work/family and taking care of our baby Justin is really a handful! Things have been going well and Justin is growing up just fine here in Hanoi but he seems to be getting bored these days. We need to find him new toys soon and better places to go to so he can continue to be entertained and also for his development 🙂

Yep, the title says it all. This will be my last ride in Hanoi. Returning my reliable motorbike next week! Finally going back to the home country after more than a year and it has been an enriching journey here in Vietnam. I’ve learned so much and embraced the people (lahat kami singkit kaya feel at home), adapted the culture and most especially loved the food! Vietnamese cuisine is really something your taste buds will crave.. aah.. bun cha, pho bo, bit tet, cha ca.. yum! The closest we have to Vietnamese food in Manila is Pho24 (which isn’t that good compared to here as the wife has tried it) and Pho Hoa. There’s Hue in Greenbelt though but looks expensive and I’m not sure if it’s still open 😀 Enough about food for now.
