Paintings from Tran Phu District 5, HCMC

Last Monday, April 2, was our last day at HCMC. Being pretty satisfied with our vacation. Unlike our previous ones, most of which did not last more than three days.

Kikay Corner is back from Vietnam and Cambodia! T’was indeed a very relaxing and enjoyable time for me and my family! Thanks to those who have joined my Limited Edition RIIR Tree Bag by Rajo Laurel Giveaway. You still have a few more days to go and I’ll raffle off the winner.
Meanwhile, here is a hair accessory find at Ben Thanh Night Market. And because our hotel was practically a stone’s throw away from the famous Ben Thanh Market, we made sure we did not waste time and checked it out on our first night in Vietnam. 🙂

The heat of the summer season calls for our hair to stay up. Never mind if I was told against it as it said to leave permanent wave marks on my poor locks. (more…)
