Loots From Vietnam

CB just got back from a business trip to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It was the longest trip (4 nights) he was away since XY was born. Normally if he needs to travel, it'll be just for 1 or 2 nights.

We communicated over the internet almost every night (he went to an internet cafe). We used the webcam so that the kids can see their father and vice versa. But connection was quite bad. His image kept hanging. Even the voice call wasn't very clear.

The kids doesn't seem to miss him too much. hahaha I guess they're too young. XY is still ok... she knows when PaPa's coming back. And she'd chat with him when he called home. As for CE, he doesn't look for PaPa and it's like out of sight, out of mind. But when PaPa walked in the front door, he stretched his arms out for PaPa to carry, like what he normally does when PaPa comes back from work in the evening.

CB bought a lot of foodstuff, clothes for all of us, bamboo bags and wine holders, which was broken when he got back. Must be due to the rough handling of the checked-in baggage.

~ traditional suits for the kids and a doll for XY ~

~ nut candy, peanut butter candy and mixed fruit chips ~

~ bamboo bags ~

~ broken wine holder ~

i like the bamboo bag... last time (err.. that was almost 12 yrs ago) when I was there never really explore la, I was there for another wushu competition. But Vietnam got lots of pretty girls...

Hui Sia, make sure he get u the bamboo one, not rattan. According to the seller, bamboo more durable, won't go out of shape and colour won't fade.

Sharine, luckily hubby's there for a few days oni. If not, will be vy worried abt the pretty girls there.. kekeke
