05.12.2010 | 河內足跡

新工作第二個星期, 去咗一趟河內.. 上一篇都有提到我係第一次去越南, 不過因為工作關係, 三日兩夜其實都冇機會四週圍睇吓.. 下邊啲相都係臨走前一個早上, 喺酒店附近匆匆影低嘅, 至少叫做有見識到啩?? 哈哈..

in my second week of the new job, i went to hanoi for a business trip.. as mentioned in the previous post, this was my first time to vietnam.. but because this is a working trip, i really did not have a chance to go around the place.. the photos below were taken hastily around the hotel on the morning before i left, at least i've seen a little of the city?? haha..

[相片 1/15  |  Photo 1 of 15]« 往前 Previous  |  往後 Next »

there are a few first-times for this trip: first time to vietnam, first business trip for the new company, first two stamps on the new passport..

    ReplyDelete
  47. Your photographs have a kind of nostalgic feel, quite nice...

    ReplyDelete
  48. 第一次去越南,就拍下第一次被盖印的passport...有应景啊!

    ReplyDelete
  49. The thing that struck me about the stamps on your passport is how neat and nicely the stamps are placed side-by-side. That helps to save space on the passport. Kudos to the officer. That sure was a short trip. More to come undoubtedly? So, did you get to try their famous beef noodles? No Halong Bay visit, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  50. 亚洲很多地方我都觉得很神秘呢,像越南,缅甸,寥国,柬埔寨……hmm...

    ReplyDelete
  51. oh, nice!! so this must be a very special trip to you since there are so many first times..

    ReplyDelete
  52. i like this set of photo, you purposely touched up with the nostalgic effect?? that's very cool.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. haha, your Hanoi office looks very cute indeed, feels like classrooms in a school.. hehehe~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  54. the motocyclists, beef noodles, million-dong-aire, wow.. all so vietnamese huh?? but too bad you didn't manage to have a chance to really see Hanoi eih??

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ wenn:
    haha, yeah but never expected so many first time at one time.. :)

    @ Shingo T:
    yeah, very true, at least i've collected another stamp on my passport.. errr, i think not a lot but maybe just moderate flying required.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. @ lina:
    hahaha, very true!!! at least i can tell i've been there, and one of the happiest thing to me is to collect more immgration stamps in the passport.. hmmm, i have no idea if i'll be going to Hanoi again.. oh yeah, after you've mentioned about hospital, i have the same feel about that too now~~ hahahaha!! :D

    @ 穷光蛋市长:
    哈哈, 有什麼好羨慕的呢?? 其實有很多辛酸是我沒有說出來而你又沒有看見的~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  57. @ Bananazஇ:
    hahaha, many first time for this trip to Hanoi, so this must be quite unforgettable yeah?? hmmm actually millionaire status already lost after the second day, because you spend thousands and millions of dongs easily over there, eg: you pay 100K for a meal is just so common over there.. oh i guess all drivers as well as pedestrians are all really skillful on the road, haha!! i never see accident happen there..

    @ Small Kucing:
    photo?? already up in this post what~~ click Previous and Next lor..

    ReplyDelete
  58. @ Mei Teng:
    hmmm i guess will definitely do that.. haven't been to Halong Bay and i heard that's a very nice place to go..

    @ 孤傲的王子:
    oh yeah, i guess so.. but i didn't have chance to go around the place during my trip there, maybe the next time~~ :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. @ Twilight:
    no lah, Thambee will never have been to more places than Arumugam.. Arumugam always go here go there for business and also leisure, how can Thambee compare?? really no time for shopping and sightseeing at all, but i guess Kamala will sure understand this is work and not play.. unlike how Arumugam treated Letchumi, went travelling alone happily and left Letchumi ploughing the farm alone back in motherland~~ haha, all my thousands of dong were invested in food lor, easily pay 100K for a meal leh, hahahaha~~ so come back really gotta eat tosai and back to become the slumdog lor, Arumugam got money to lend me?? :D

    @ suituapui:
    haha, yeah, i guess my blog is best viewed with IE8?? haha.. errr, just a normal business trip, because i didn't have a chance to walk around..

    ReplyDelete
  60. @ L²:

    @ khengsiong:
    冇喎, 唔駛留低passport架, 而且連問都冇問過要睇添.. 間酒店就唔清楚同汽車公司有冇關係, 但係肯定同韓國有關, 事關我發覺好多韓國人住呢度囉.. 嘩, 你咁夠膽食街邊嘢?? 我冇喎, 下次有機會先啦..

    @ iamthewitch:

    ReplyDelete
  65. @ Medie007:
    errr actually that's only a very small part of Hanoi since i only have time to walk around the hotel area.. they have a very famous Halong Bay, UNESCO heritage, must go if you are planning to..

    @ reanaclaire:
    oh, you always fly to Hanoi?? quite a nice trip for a business trip actually.. :)

  66. @ edward:

  67. @ Kelvin:
    yeah, i think it's not a surprise to see a whole family riding on the same motorcycle.. but i believe they sure know the skills well.. :)

    @ 单身汉:
    哈哈, 回來之後已經不是百萬富翁了.. 這次的照片特意加上那懷舊復古的效果, 我很喜歡, 那個倒影, 是回來後看到照片才發現的~~

    ReplyDelete
  68. @ CH Voon:
    oh really?? i actually know very little about vietnam too, and this was also my first time being there..

    @ 海市蜃樓:
    越南河通常都係牛肉, 都有雞肉不過就同我哋嘅雞絲河粉差不多, 所以會建議食牛肉嘅.. 哈哈, 啲懷舊effect係我特登加上去嘅, 我覺得好靚喎~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  69. @ Kamala:
    oh my dear Kamala, are you speaking on behalf of Letchumi?? i know i know, sure it's because of Letchumi misses Arumugam too much till she got crazy and ask you to talk to me.. anyway, i have no idea why Arumugam never miss home, i feel bad for him too.. anyway, just try to comfort Letchumi and Thambee will make sure Arumugam remembers Letchumi and send her rupees and food.. :D

    @ reanaclaire:
    errr, already back in KL though, hahaha~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  70. @ Grass:
    yeah, i purposely touch up with that retro effect, kind of nice and match Hanoi i guess?? :)

    @ bluecloud:
    是囉是囉, 這次的越南之旅真的有很多第一次, 果然是很特別哦.. :)

    @ HappySurfer:
    oh yeah, and i was very surprised they used to stamp on the very last page, and so neatly!! errr, still no idea if i'd be travelling there, but definitely would like to go back there again.. beef noodles is nice and i like it but haven't got a chance to actually go around the place, not to mention Halong Bay~~ :(

    ReplyDelete
  71. @ -KeO-:
    哈哈, 其實你去過了就不覺得有什麼神秘的.. 但是我印象中神秘的地方應該是西藏, 印度, 中東那些~~ :)

    @ victor:
    oh yeah, certainly a very special trip for me for there are so many first times.. you are right, i found after the nostalgic effect, the photos actually looks nicer and kind of given me the same feel of Hanoi.. hope i'll have a chance to be there again, and really have time to walk around Hanoi.. :)

  76. @ Jifdc/Ayie:
    errr, not always but only once in a while.. i don't want to travel too often too, moderately is good enough.. :)

    @ Ashley:
    真的沒有機會, 好像大部份時間都在公司和酒店度過罷了, 哈哈!! 不過臨走那天早上特地早點起身到酒店附近走走, 算是有點交代吧?? 其實那個牛肉河粉, 也是在酒店吃的早餐罷了~~

    ReplyDelete
  77. @ foongpc:
    yeah, very nice, you must try if you are in vietnam..

    mNhL:
    oh yes, i guess at least 50% of the traffic is invaded by motorcyclists, because i heard that many can only afford a motorcycle.. beef noodles is one of vietnam's famous food, sure yummy and must try~~ :)
