My Vietnam adventure was full of fun, excitement and.. pain.
Pain because I met an accident.
You see, in Vietnam the traffic is chaotic. It means you can go no matter if the traffic light shows green, yellow or red. I watched, and understood this rule on the first day I arrived at Ho Chin Minh city.
But there’s one more rule that I was not aware of, and that is a one way road can also means both ways. I was crossing a road, specifically the street of Hang Dau in Hanoi and I was pretty sure it was a one way street so I was about to cross the street focusing only on the oncoming vehicles but was not aware another bike was moving against the traffic towards me. I got hit, and he sped off.
I didn’t realised how bad my injury was until I sat down at a coffee shop and rolled up my jeans.
The point of this post, for those visiting Vietnam, be EXTRA careful while crossing the street.
My last post, which I just realised, was more than 7 months old. I feel guilty because my initial plan was to update this blog at the very least once a month. So what happened since September 2016?
My wife was pregnant with our first child and our baby girl was finally born in December 2016. For the past 5 months, life took a dramatic change with addition of a new family member and it becomes more and more challenging to find time updating this blog on a regular basis.
However, rest assured that this blog is still very much alive and I’m still working out a way to get this blog updated on a more regular basis. For those who are still following me, I thank you for your continuous support.
That’s all for this time. Stay tuned and cheers!
Christ the Redeemer, it’s a famous landmark in Brazil where a giant statue of Jesus Christ standing over 30 meters high, with his both hands extended, looking over the city of Rio de Jeneiro and its coast.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, I believe below picture will remind you of the famous landmark in Brazil.
I believe I have found the similar replica of the same in the city of Kota Kinabalu.
The picture on the left is the mentioned Christ the Redeemer statue while on the right, is our own local replica of the same view. The church concerned is St.Joseph church of Roman Catholic and this location is at Kokol Hill in the area of Inanam, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
What do you think?
Why jog? People ask me. Short answers from me:
– Exercise, and especially at my age, it’s not a want but a necessity. Without doing it, my headache becomes more frequent and my back ache, very painful one.
– Meditation. Life is hectic and I seldom have time to reflect my own purpose of life. Everyday after work, my mind becomes too tired to think of anything else. Jogging is my only time to ponder, think of ideas, reflect my own life, get de-stressed and move on with life.
– Connecting with Mother Nature. I love Mother Nature and my favourite jogging place is Taman Tun Fuad at Bukit Padang.
Partly covered Mount Kinabalu. Cloudy weather today.
Hi, just a short one here.
Do you guys know what is an ‘Airbnb’? Maybe younger generation will recognize this. It’s basically an online portal whereby you can look for places to stay overnight around the world. These are places hosted by individuals who have available spaces for you and in return, you pay them small fees. If you heard of Agoda.com or Booking.com, it works in a similar way, except this one, is not hotel, but private properties.
I’m hosting my empty space at Airbnb too. The new menu called “Airbnb” above will bring you to my property page at Airbnb. Feel free to have a look or drop me a message or email me if you require further clarification or assistance! Have a nice day!
