A rural wet market of Vietnam   1 comment


A rural wet market of Vietnam
This is the outskirt of Da Lat of Central Highlands of Vietnam. A typical market selling vegetables, fruits, fishes and meat. The pineapples are said to be very sweet but when we wanted to make a purchase, these were already sold out. However, the only objectionable thing to our culture was the sale of dog meat. The head of the dog was placed on the butcher’s table. Thinking back to the old days when there was a war between the North Vietnamese and the South Vietnamese aided by the Americans, food might be scarce and dog meat was probably added to the table, my opinion.

Tomorrow – Monday, 1 June, 2015 I shall publish the blog on the Grand Post Office of Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon, Vietnam dedicated to the late father Mr. Fernand Linet of my good friend Bertrand Linet.

At the morning Wet Market of Seafood   Leave a comment


At the morning Wet Market of Seafood in Vietnam
The very next morning after starting off early in the morning at 5.00 am, we arrived early after photo-shooting at the nearby sand dunes about 1 km away. The weather was not that great as it has an overcast sky with rain clouds blocking the sunlight. Walking down the partly cemented path, we arrived at a busy wet market selling all sorts of sea-food from lobsters, all sorts of crabs, squids, shells, sea creatures and of course, fishes. The trawlers, boats and coracles that the fishermen used, were quite unique in Vietnam. The sun was slowly coming up and we started photo-shooting right away like there was no tomorrow.

PhanThietMap.jpg.pagespeed.ce.M21KJ4uHGKEach area of Phan Thiet has its own draw and unique characteristic:

From Wikipedia:-
Mui Ne is the most populous community outside of the city center and the town is very lively, especially in the early morning when the fishing boats come in and in the early evening when residents go out for coffee or dinner at the many cafes and restaurants in the town.

There are resorts and restaurants along both Ganh and Suoi Nuoc beaches in Mui Ne ward. Resorts along Ganh Beach are all located on the east side of a cape whereas the town covers the west side of the cape. The word ‘Mui’ in Vietnamese means cape and ‘Ne’ means shelter. The locals call it the shelter cape, as they use the cape to shelter their fishing boats from the wind. People who don’t want to stay in the middle of a busy tourist strip, but want to be on a quiet beach yet close to a local community should choose to stay in a resort in Mui Ne ward.

Mui Ne ward is also where the orange sand dunes are located; on a hill between the town of Mui Ne and Hon Rom. The larger white sand dunes are located about 23 kilometres north of Mui Ne.

Phan Thiet is a year-round destination, though local operators make a distinction between the high (or “winter”) season and low (or “summer”) season. During the high season, which runs roughly from October to April, it is primarily northern Europeans who come here to escape the cold and dark winter and enjoy ideal conditions for windsurfing and kite surfing. During the low season, it is a popular destination for Vietnamese who want to escape the hot and steamy cities, as well as Australians and North Americans on holiday.

Marketing at Chowrasta Market on Christmas Day   Leave a comment


We did some marketing at Chowrasta Market on Christmas Day to purchase vegetables. We had koay teow th’ng with my former colleague Chew Jong Pok, his wife and his daughter at Evergreen Cafe, Hutton Lane. The crowd was reasonable. The back portion of Chowrasta Market was under renovation.
