after a long 12 hrs bus ride i finally reached hcmc!
last day at vietnam
gonna take a night flight back to singapore already =(
had my breakfast at a random cafe called sasa
after my breakfast i asked if there is any power point that i can use for my laptop
and u know what?
they didnt have one
and they actually brought me to their office desk and let me use their power point there!
after that i went back to saigon mini 5
(the hotel i used to stay on my first night)
even though i have already checked out like a week ago
they still let me deposit my bag there
and let me use their internet facilities there!
where can u find such hotel in singapore?
if you do, let me know k?
after deposited my bag
i went for SPA~~~
no pics during spa
i had 90 mins full body massage + 75 mins foot massage
thats abt 3 hrs of massage
and in total PLUS the tips i gave
i only spent abt sgd11.25!!!!
one last look of hcmc
and i went for my lunch
beef noodles again
and yoghurt as after lunch dessert
i really pampered myself on my last day
went for manicure after lunch =P
and then it started raining
so i decided to go for an hour-long hair wash while waiting for the rain to stop
after hair wash the rain still had not stopped
i just sat ard and wait
and ate oranges with them =P
this is what i saw when i stepped out of the salon
luckily my hotel was just opposite
i rolled up my pants and just walked across the street
the hotel staff helped me call for cab to airport
and there i ended my journey
