I really need to develop the films on my table………..

Saigon: Dong Du

If you are a Muslim, most probably this street will be in your itinerary. Saigon’s Central Mosque and a few halal restaurants are located here.

Dong Du Street is just off Dong Khoi, which is one of the main street/road in Saigon.

Lunch Break

Saigon: In Motion

There are a lot of motorcycles in Saigon, something like a swarm of bees, and it is a challenge to actually cross a busy street or road. The trick when crossing, is to cross with confidence, can’t actually explain it but you won’t get hit…….. the first few times was a nightmare, but after seeing how the locals cross, it was smooth sailing after that…… other than motorcycles on the pavement.

In this post, there will be at least two motorcycles involved in each shot……

…….

Whoah….. what was that

Excuse me, you are suppose to stop on red….. and there’s an idiot taking a photo of us in the middle of the road

between the two wheelers…..

photo shoot…… say cheese

Balloon seller under the tree

Saigon: Coffee Time….. all the time

HCMC….. 26 Dec – 31 Dec 2011

Coffee Time…. one part of Saigon’s daily life, they just like to sit by the roadside, sipping iced coffee while watching the world goes by. Maybe something left behind by the French.

From sunrise, until the next day there will be some one, some where along the streets of Saigon, enjoying their iced coffee.

While having breakfast…..

among friends….

…… while waiting for the cobbler to repair your shoe…….

or over a game of checkers.

There will be a glass or two between them.

Saigon: Walls

Let’s take a break from Dhaka……

Nice graffiti done on a wall not that far from Cho Ben Thanh, Saigon.
