Di lang phô ang noodle dish sa Vietnam. Meron ding bun bo hue. Beef ang main meat ingredient. Slightly spicy ang sabaw; parang laksa na nabitin sa anghang. Dahil sanay naman nga ako sa anghang (kahit Batangueña ako at hindi Bicolana 😂), nilagyan ko pa ng ilang piraso ng sili na as usual e kasama sa sides ng tipikal na pagkaing Vietnamese.

Kapag may sobrang payatot kang kaibigan at gusto mong magdamay-damay na lang kayo sa katabaan, regaluhan mo ng isang bag ng ganito. Mas matindi pa sa Pringles ang epekto ng rice crackers na ito. Literal na “once you pop, you can’t stop.” Kung may matotokhang dahil sa pagka-adik sa pagkain, ako yun! Guilty! Rating: 😋😋😋 #MasarapGa #SupermarketFinds #ChichiryaSeries #VietNomNomNom
🚂💨 boy, was it a tight squeeze! #thinkskinnythoughts
😗 that train was like choo-chooooo get outta mah way!! Definitely a place where you want to be aware of your surroundings & pay attention to the locals. After the train passes its like business as usual lol, had a nice coffee sesh at this guy's shop right at the tracks ☕😬 was a bit of a trek to get here, but glad we did it!! #vietnomnomnom #eggcoffeeismynewjam #trainstreetlife
St Joseph's Cathedral is one of the craziest pieces of Gothic architecture I've seen, particularly as it seems to spring up out of nowhere and tower over all the other buildings that it surrounds.
Found this cool little cafe hidden away in a tiny side alley nearby, was great to chill while drinking an ice coffee and admire the scenery 😗☕

Made the drive to city center yesterday to get freaky on a bowl of bánh canh cá. Thoughts: I never thought I would love fish soup this much. Also, it's good to be back. #DaNang #VietNomNomNom
Day 105 in Vietnam.
Today was ANOTHER early start so we were up and checked out of our hotel by 7am (not before enjoying our complimentary breakfast ofcourse!) and picked up by a tour bus who took us 30min away to a harbour in Hoi An for the next leg of our adventure.. undersea walking and snorkelling! We got onto a two story wooden boat which sailed an hour off the shore of Hoi An to the island of Cham where an anchor was put down around 5 minutes from the shore. After a brief instructional video we were ready to go and the next couple of hours involved snorkelling through the clear greeny blue water and.. the best part?! Putting a giant glass helmet/fishbowl onto our heads to the walk along the ocean floor like an ancient diver and feed the fish. That was an incredibly quiet and calming experience which has really made me want to look into getting my scuba diving license as I just LOVE being under the water!! The ocean fun was all too quickly over but then we got to go in a speedboat to the other side of Cham Island for lunch.. which was at a little, private and quiet, tropical beach which had hammocks, thatch roof huts and golden sand. We had an endless supply of food provided to us at Cham Restaurant (with enough being vegetarian for me to also tuck in!) and then we spent the next couple of hours swimming, floating and drinking beers in the unbelievably warm and calm bay before our speedboat was ready to take us back to Hoi An. THIS was yet another moment of realisation that "Holy HELL I'm in Asia!!" and I luxuriated in every moment of it.. #vietnam #vietnamdiary #vietnamlife #vietnamindependenceday

Grab the tail end of a short Chicago summer with the summer rolls @eatvietnomnom
. The well portioned and carefully wrapped rolls will have you rolling back to the summer time!
Day 84 in Vietnam.
My centre is still closed for renovations so I had another wonderfully relaxed day pottering around at home before meeting up with my friend Nancy for dinner at Prem Bistro. She's not on social media so can't be tagged.. and doesn't like photos being taken so it all seems more mysterious than it is! LoL.
It's been ages since I'd been to Prem so I opted for us to sit outside as I arrived first. Which was great for about five minutes.. until the roadworks started 😂😂😂 That wrecked the peace!! But, it's such a common noise in this hectic city that we soon settled down for a catch up and almost forgot about it! Haha. We were so engrossed that I didn't even think to take photos of the divine food that we had.. DID IT EVEN HAPPEN IF I DIDN'T TAKE PHOTOS?! 😂😂😂😂😂 I can say that I had the roasted tomato and basil soup with toasted cheese croustinis (toasted baguette slices) and tofu tacos (you get three small but perfectly formed tacos with all the divine flavours of salty, savoury and feta cheesy). It's one of my favourite dishes at Prem but I wish the portion sizes were bigger! LoL. I also treated myself to a mango and passion fruit smoothie as I was craving something sweet afterwards. All sooooooooooooo good 👌 Normally I'd feel guilty about all that food but the portion sizes are half of what I used to eat in the UK and I'm still losing weight which is great! So I no longer suffer from food guilt. Something I've carried with me for most of my life. So that's pretty liberating, right?! Not that you need to know about my quirks *winks* But it's sure fun for me to realise that revelation!

Tonight I start my adventure in moving to Saigon! Can’t believe I’m saying goodbye to the states for an entire year. Thank you to all the friends who have supported me and my decision over the past few months. I’ll miss you all so much. Now accepting all visitor applications 🇺🇸✈️🇻🇳
So happy we got to try The Lunch Lady, catapulted to fame when Anthony Bourdain featured them on his show — No Reservations. There’s no ordering system here, you just basically eat whatever they put in front of you. 😅 They serve different kinds of phở for each day of the week. I loved the phở but my favorite was their fresh spring rolls! A must visit when in HCMC! 💖 #vietnomnomnom
Legit bánh mì ốp la we ate at the side of the street! 🤤😋 Two fried eggs with various kinds of meat + crispy baguette with liver pâté. SO GOOD! 😭😭😭 #vietnomnomnom
