Oh yeah the swine flu...

Getting worse in Vietnam

The rain seem to be settled down now... Not as crazy as the beginning of May.

Today decided to try out the Crab noodle.
Found one near Ben Tanh mkt , about 10mins walk away
Address: 93 Nguyễn ThŠi Học



The soup is tasty. Light flavour of tomatoe and crab taste.
Portion not very big.

Dish + drink = 40k + 17k = vnd$57,000 = sgd$3.40





Jiak bah bah. Go Landmark 81.
The newest atas shopping office mall in HCM
Official opening in late April this year.
Can come here visit.

Around the office mall surrounded by condos.



Just a 5 level mall.
The shopping mall resemble as ION Orchard ; as in
TOP levels are atas brands.
Lower levels are for peasants. :[

But a mini version of ion Orchard.
Not very big place.



Earn a lifetime also can not afford this. :[




Hill street Singapore food is here. :-O



Even have an indoor skating rink.
Decent size. \o/ \o/

Is the Saigon Skydeck worth going or waste of time.
200,000 VND to go up there. Not expensive though.

Personally I donít mind waste sgd$12 to view scenery.
But depends on individual.

Some prefer to use this money for makan. Shopping.

Anyway. U only go once and thatís it.
U wonít go the 2nd time. Unless the landscape change drastically.

Come to HCM , of coz must go Saigon skydeck aka Bitexco tower
Entry fee is vnd$200,000 = sgd$12.



This financial ctr design inspired by Lotus, and lotus is Vietnam National flower
Cost USD$300 million to build it.



The view is nice. Really shows HCM developing.
But from what I see. It will takes another 20-40yrs
To become a developed country.



On the left is district 1.
On the right is district 2 ( the upcoming CBD area in 15yrs time )
According to their master plan.



Looking at the big space. I doubt can be done in 15yrs
Unless they can follow China.



Like msia. Some of the construction r abandoned.
Lack of funds I guess.
What a waste of precious space.



The skydeck wasnít crowded. One thing I noticed is
Very few ah Tiongs in this HCM.
Usually ah Tiongs will flood the tourist areas.



Inside the observation deck. There is a mini ao Dai exhibition
The view from saigon skydeck looks good. much better than the view from taipei 101. that one is pay ntd600 to see old, grey buildings lol.

Go to the Heineken side better but need to go early or book online.

They only issue limited admission tickets per day

Many are still shop houses no more than 6 storeys high.

But that could all change in another 10-15 years
