Celebrating Spring


Flowers in front of Notre Dame Cathedral in HCMC

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.

School at Dinh Trang Nhi – Monochrome Friday


Elementary/Primary School

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.

Vincom Centre – Travel Thursday


Vincom Centre and the Saigon Opera House

Vincom Centre is a new shopping arcade by Vincom group, one of the big property moguls in Vietnam.  They also have a retro, pseudo-Victorian bent towards their architectural style.

Here in the foreground is the courtyard of Vincom Centre facing Le Loi Boulevard and in the background is the Saigon Opera House.
