In this post, I take you through my last few days in
Vietnam, spent at Ho Chi Minh city, with Connie Yan.
For the first 2-part post,

We had just wound up our trip to
Hanoi and Ninh Binh and came to Ho Chi Minh for some of that urban life. We had a nice little Airbnb booked at District 1 (which is the area you should consider staying in when you visit Saigon) that had all places of our interest accessible on foot.
We did a lot of cafes, food, a fair bit of shopping, etc. Connie had to leave for Australia a day prior to me. That was obviously a factor of my airline canceling my return flights. Shout out to Sahil for booking me on follow-up flight the next morning, that took me through Bangkok.
As always, a
to kick-start this post: vlog from my YouTube channel
And now, I will take you through our days in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam through images I shot on my phone as we went along.
This basic yet functional AirBnB made our stay in Ho Chi Minh super easy and nice
First meal on our return to Ho Chi Minh was this fancy place called the Secret House
Beer so expensive, we had to split a can. If I am honest though, it is because it was beyond my means.
Stir Fried Rice with a side of veggies and Pork Belly
Mood all day, every day.

Perhaps the only image of mine from my trip to Vietnam. I know it isn’t scenic like it were taken at sunrise over a mountain. But I will work with what I can get.
5theway has gained quite the cult following over the years in Vietnam. Almost as much as Supreme, dare I say?
Get you someone who looks at you the way Connie looks at expensive ham and cheese.
Pasta at Pizza 4 P’s
Half and Half Pizza, with some fancy cheese I don’t know the name of with some real expensive ham that is beyond my affordability, and bacon
Now, this is more like a meal I can pay for. 3 USD. All in. Lol
Lol, another meal I can afford. Beef Stew and Banh Mi bread
Connie has always been obsessed with free lime/lemon
Excited to absorb Vietnamese food and culture. Which is something Connie values a lot more than Indian, as I eventually learned.
Almond Milk Butterscotch Frappe. I did not know Almonds have titties.
Yet again, fancy dessert at Miyama Cafe, which is beyond my means. All paid for by Connie
Beef Stew and Noodles at Pho 2000
I don’t think I have ever loved someone as unconditionally as I have loved this fucking pain in the ass!
Clear skies in Vietnam
Don’t think I have ever seen anything cuter than Connie when she smiles.
The last meal we had in Vietnam, at Pho Cong.
I can’t do selfies, even if it meant more representation on social media. Which is why I seldom make it.
Perhaps the last time I see Connie
Stepped out of the AirBnB late at night to get me some coffee since I was all alone and feeling hella lonely

Let me know what you make of the vlog and my experiences overall. I know, I know, it was mostly all food. Lol. But I would like to know anyway.

Always pack the essentials
