A path among the trees

This was taken almost exactly one year ago, while I was taking my Japanese friend who was undertaking a backpacking trip all over Asia. I am still rather surprised she made the trip all the way over here. Maybe I should return the favour and visit her there.

This shot was taken after coming down from the knee shaking experience up above the canopy.

B?n Thành Market, Vietnam

A slice of Saigon life, one zebra crossing at a time.

It’s quite hard to explain how the traffic flow in Ho Chi Minh City to my friends without them uttering disbelief. When I said that people just cross the road without needing the traffic to stop, I see that tiny amount of disbelief in their faces. I find that this photo is a perfect representative of the hectic hustle and bustle of HCMC, also known as Saigon.

At the start of this write up, I’ve said that this is a slice of Saigon life, and if you study the photo carefully, you will find the odd tourists looking for direction on their maps, uniformed officials, well dress workforce, and the blur of motorcycles far outnumbering their four wheel counterparts. And in the background you can find the famous B?n Thành Market, a marketplace where you can find tailored $20USD silk shirts alongside stalls selling the local delicacies.

I’ll do a full write up soon on my Tripping, which I can give you tips on what stuff to do or get to make for an awesome experience. I’ll go about it in chronological order starting with Thailand.

I think I should post something about my recent Trippin’ eh?

I have a looooot to talk about but man, where to start? Maybe this photo would be a good teaser as any. This was taken right beside Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh. Lovely city. Would love to tell you all about it soon.

I can’t believe I have been living at this place for this many years and I’ve never been to this spot. Maybe on sleepless nights, I’d drive over to catch sunrises here again.

Taken on a beautiful Friday morning. Might head back there to shoot the place some more.

Early Morning Stroll

Early Morning Stroll
This was taken the same day as the previous shot. Started my early morning with a stroll at Meragang. It looks rather different in the morning light. Might do another morning trek to the other side soon.

Just a Little Bit More…

Having the resolve not to turn back early on is a great way to have the resolve not to turn back when you’re almost at the top.

Long Way to the Top

Time and time again, life has proven that getting to the top is arduous and a difficult task, but the feeling at the top more than makes up for the hardship.

More photos coming up soon.
