Attending VMM Closing Ceremony on Sunday, 21 Sep 2014, 2:00 p.m. The event was supposed to be held at the Sapa Main Square; due to the continuous drizzle the whole morning, the venue is changed in-door. Cheerful ladies in blue … (left) Karen Wu, Cheryl Tham, Xin Shuang Wei.

 Back at the busy cross-road of Hanoi. It is amusing to watch that despite the not so strictly observed traffic rule, vehicles cross the junction without any mishap. Over here, they are not practising “the right of way”; instead, they avoid one another where the bigger vehicles have to ensure they do not knock down the smaller ones. Someone quipped that it is OK that we just close our eyes and cross the road by walking at a steady pace … is there anyone wants to try?  :-)

 Comfortable bed of the cruise ship … at Halong Bay
Quite interestingly, I was having the most comfortable sleep here.
