Ho Chi Minh Is My Tag

Hey bloggers.. is this the season of TAGS?

Not that I am not in favor, in fact, I do welcome them, it coincides with my "blankness" of what to post actually... Good that it comes at the right timing!

These tag came from two bloggers, one is FoongPC and Ghostly Nana.. both also have something in common, one likes to talk about ghost stories at times and Nana has a ghost nick on her... wonder why.. Ok, now the intructions that I need to do... they are as follows:- 1. Go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder 2. Select the 8th photo in that folder 3. Post that photo along with the story behind it 4. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same! So when I searched for my 8th Folder and the 8th Photo, I found this... Story line? Here goes...

This was taken in HO CHI MINH city, er... two years back... Went there with a few frens, (westerners and asians, guess which group I belong to?)
I love the traffic there.. :p

I just closed my eyes and screamed..
and then let myself be led through the traffic..

phew!!! I am Safe!
the traffic in HCM was super!
very expert drivers!!

And now.. 8 bloggers I need to tag... sigh... I know some of you do not like doing tags and a few others like to.... anyway, I will not impose, take it or leave it!!! hahahaa... ok , on a softer tone, can you please do it if you like to... or ignore it completely... I will not mind.

Here are the Super 8 men I like to tag.... Chris Au, Eugene, Fishing Guy, Pete, Kevin, Gabriel, Aaron & Andy...

  2. Wow so many motorbike. must be very scary with all those bikes.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
