Our trip to Vietnam – Part One (Ho Chi Minh City)

by Reedz on December 20, 2007

When the girls got back from their Vietnam holiday, I asked them to write an essay (which Neesha ended up writing) about their trip which I could publish here together with photos taken by Nia (using a Canon S45). So, without further ado, here’s part one of the essay:


On the 8th of December, our grandma, my sister and I, together with our aunty and cousins, went on a nine day trip to Vietnam. We boarded our flight from Brunei Darussalam to Ho Chi Minh City at 9 pm and reached there by 11 pm. After meeting our tour guide, we went to the Hoang Gia Huy Hotel by bus.

Early the next morning, we had breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast, we made a short stop at the old classic post office as well as a Catholic Church called ‘Notre Dame De Paris’. After visiting the church, we visited the Jamia Mosque. At night time, we went to the airport for a late flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi.

Congrats to Neesha and Nia on their posts regarding their recent holiday in Vietnam. I really enjoy reading them. My salute to you AB for your steadfast guidance on your daughters. I think you should encourage them to have a blog of their own in the near future as it can hone further their writing and photography skills.

Good luck!
