Here is a picture of the HCMC People’s Committee with its reflection off the polished floor tiles of Vincom Shopping Centre across Ton Duc Thang Street in Saigon, Vietnam.
It’s the Lunar New Year, or Tet, as it’s known in Vietnam.
I’m back in Singapore this week to celebrate with my family, but here’s a picture taken recently from HCMC of flowers adorning the front of the Notre Dame Cathedral in preparations to celebrate the Spring festival.
Some time earlier this year, imperfection from msnguyen.wordpress.com, who grew up in Vung Tau in her childhood, requested me to take a picture of her school if I’m ever nearby. I did pass by the area a few times, but for once, I did manage to explore the area further. The entrance to this school is facing a narrow alleyway, so I’m not sure if it is the same school that Imperfection went to (based on Google Maps, it seems to be the only school here).
If it isn’t, then I’ll have to try harder next time.
When I was there, a group of children and their teacher were having a rehearsal of some sorts, while some girls were playing some rope game on the grounds.
