Short Talk:

Travelling with Nicole requires a lot of patience and a high level of tolerance to her impromptu singing every few minutes.

If Vietnamese Speak Hokkien

We are on our second last day in Vietnam.

Nicole and I are staying at the "Old Quarters" in Hanoi. We got a clean and comfortable guesthouse that costs us only RM23 a night each.

It seems like everytime I travel, I am fated to come across places with funny names, like Similan Island in Thailand and Ni'ama Bay in Egypt.

Not far away from where we stay, I saw this guesthouse with a pretty bizzare name.

My Cock Guesthouse!

Unregistered

Unregistered

Maybe you can interpret "MY LAN" as:

"MY" - Malaysia
"LAN" - Local Area Network

So, it can be Malaysia LAN Guesthouse which provides high speed internet connection to Malaysia sites, hehe...

Unregistered

Haha how come the house name so funny? did u ask y they come out with this name?

Unregistered

Kenny Sia - you're back to your best when talking cock.

Was getting worried a few posts back when you were starting to align yourself politically even when you said you weren't. But then again, you would make a great politician because you talk cock very well!

Anyhoo, overall you rock!

Oh, just as a last comment - You go holiday with pretty girl also can complain some more about the singing! What la!

Unregistered

She sing mean she happy to be with you la! Aiyaa Kenny!

I am looking very forward to your posting about this Vietnam trip. Out of so many places that we have travelled, Sapa will always remain magical and memorable, especially with the colors and kindness of the minority ethnic people. Have fun, be safe!

Kenny, since snake meat or parts are known to be aphrodisiac...I wonder what will happen to Nicole at the end of the trip....lol

Unregistered

Hanoi is a great place, 15 years back in time, at least compared to Kuching (maybe 10). The people are great (I mean the girls, and they are pretty and dress well, forget about the guys, our lan pah kia in Kuching looks better) and the shopping is fantastic (everything is affordable in Dong).

We treated ourselves to Bobby Chinn's, the red decor was outragious, the food is only so so and in USD$ too.

Our accomodation was at Sunny Hotel in the old quarters. We "enjoyed" the sight, sound (motor bike horns and the irritating ice cream seller, worst than ours, no tune at all)and smell of road side cooking. This must be one of the last place on this planet where they undress a chicken and then cook it squatting by the five foot way.

Overall it was an enjoyable trip and you must be having a good time. Every meal we had with Hanoi beer, great beer.

We had a few rats accompanied us for refeshments at the International Airport food outlet. Srvice is a big zero. An Aussie tourist complained about the rats to the cashier who did not understand what she was saying???

Good bye Hanoi

Unregistered

haha... i'm a faithful reader of urs but it seems u never talk bout your relationship b4...hmm...

Unregistered

sorry kenny, you have some very interesting readers with interesting comments here (gulp!) Anyway, wanna check with you since Im going to Ho Chi Minh myself next month. The public transport ok or not? like Bangkok?

Unregistered

jealous bitch.... teeheehee

Unregistered

very NhaKhach (nakal :P), indeed

Unregistered

Some Vietnamese do speak hokkien. The ones i meet in Melbourne anyways. There was one old lady whom i met who spoke in hokkien. And i met another vietnamese man at the temple who spoke in cantonese. Apparently, they are alot of Chinese who migrated to vietnam and later on migrated to Australia.

Unregistered

nicole and u, nicole and u... arent u sick enough of her face?

Unregistered

MY LAN = "Beautiful Orchid" in Vietnamese.
Jeeze, you can't just read Vietnamese on Vietnamese streets and translate it into your language, then conclude that it's a weird name!:)

Unregistered

Hmm...that guesthouse's name means "Beautiful Orchid"...

Unregistered

MY [in a English sentence] is MY? (Han-Vietnamese): beauty/beautiful
LAN: orchid flower
MY LAN = MY? LAN = Beautiful Orchid
