Hochiminh City, Vietnam



I will be off to Vietnam for a couple of weeks....business cum a bit of leisure.
Will definitely try out some of the restaurants he reccommended on his blog...and revisit Qbar...hopefully it is still as cool. My biggest desire is to meet my god-brother Viet whom i lose contact with for a few years now. He was barely 10 when i met him one fateful night in Ho Chi Minh City...working as a shoe-shine boy for a mere US$1 per day! To cut the long story short...I enrolled him for an english course in an American school. The last i heard from him...he was doing well...working in a cafe...speaking good english.
