Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh/Saigon (Chu Chi Tunnel)

Day 2 - (4th July 2012)

We had our breakfast early in the morning before leaving to Chu Chi Tunnel.

We departed at 8.45am and the journey from our hotel to Chu Chi Tunnel took roughly about 2 hours ride.
It's quite far from town area.
Most of us were sleeping while we were on our way there.

Half way through our destination, we had a toilet break in one of the handcrafts factory.
Oh boy!
That place was an eye-candy!
Damn a lot of foreigners stopped there. Super a lot of good looking mat salleh dudes you know.
Instead of looking at how those people create those fantastic crafts, I observed the guys.

Those ang moh guys look like ala-ala Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise and all those good looking ones.
How can I not look at them la?
Slurps :P

Okay back to main topic.
Here are some pictures of the workers creating beautiful artwork by using EGG SHELLS!!!

100% made with egg shells.
Super nice right? 

After the short toilet break, we resumed our journey.
Here's a short history on Chu Chi Tunnel.

Chu Chi Tunnel were used as a hiding spots during combat back in the older days. The tunnel size were specially built for Asian size. To be more precise, the tunnel size were built to fit those Viet Cong.
As you all know, Asian people compared to Westerners are totally different when it comes to physical appearances. Asian are smaller and petite while Westerners are bigger and taller.

This tunnel was built for the war against American forces.

If you are tall and big in size, you may face some difficulties to go through the tunnel.

The students were divided into 4 groups and each group consisted of 5 members.
Every 2 groups will play different games and then they will rotate.

We had The Hula Challenge game and also The Tunnel Race and Dare.
I was in charged of the Tunnel Race.

Tunnel Race

Instructing them to enter accordingly.
I looked like shit that day. Not going to post any front shot of myself :P

The tunnel was fun. You have to crawl and jump in order to reach the exit. Only one person at a time can fit in the tunnel.

The Hula Challenge 

The students built their base as strong as possible.

Defending team got wet trying to protect their base from being
 destroyed by water bombs from the attacking team.

Besides that, some of them managed to try gun shooting.
Of course it's not free.
The price is quite expensive.
And yes, you will be given a real riffle and bullets.
Not just any random toy gun okay!

Real bullets

After all those tiring games, we drove another 2 hours all the way back to our hotel.
Then, they had a demonstration on how to prepare one of the Vietnamese cooking culture.
Can't remember what was it called already.

The outcome. Something like transparent popiah :D

After refreshment, we had dinner in Lion City Restaurant.
Which was located right beside our hotel only.
Super near :D

That night after everything was done, I went to the night market around 11pm+ with my partner.
The stuffs there are quite cheap if you're good in haggling :)

However, that night was a bit shocking for me because there was a random lady who hit my chest out of sudden -____________- and just walked off.
The fuck?
My chest anyhow give you hit ah? Kanasai! Slap you one time only know!

At first I thought she wanted to sell something but it seems that she's not selling anything O__O
I just hope that she won't cast any black spells on me.

I'm just an innocent tourist wei.
Tak pasal-pasal mati due to unidentified sickness/disease.
*touch wood*

Luckily I managed to buy few stuffs in that night market.
Overall day two was a fun day for me.
Fun and tiring day of course.

However, all of the digital products including samsung galaxy tab as well,
which use memory card to store your data or files, such as videos,
images or audio files, so human operation would make data lost on Galaxy Tab accidently.
1 feels excellent within the hand not like the Motorola Xoom and the Acer Iconia A500.
Business travel become less an adventure and more an experience, this a
7 inch tablet which you can take it anywhere with you.

Many homes have fireplaces for both warmth and decor.
The heat from the air moves into the cooled refrigerant.
To save energy, the aim was for residents to program
their schedules for regulating home temperatures, which
proved to be complex and not popular in use.

However, there is high internet access on the phone and there
are all possibilities of a virus attack on the phone.
Both support tethering and have a GPS transceiver with A-GPS.
i - Phone application developers and Apple app store still holds unmatchable number of apps in terms of quality.

Unfortunately these more compact designs have come at a
great cost and have become far more susceptible to any kind of a
liquid spillage. If you are a brand conscious person and wants to buy that laptop that reflects status and class, then going for apple brand is the
best option. It was a great investment and I found that it's better to not sweat the small stuff.

That being said, it can be seen that Apple and Samsung continue to grab market
share from other OEMs. These data plans will enable seamless voice
and video calls with high resolution, excellent sound clarity and no lag on hand-held gadgets.
If you don't like to cook or feel like you don't have time,
there are apps for restaurants also.

It operates in conjunction with your i - Tunes account, or you can have a
number of other connections, based upon what you want to view.
If you don't want to use the Apple remote there is another option. The Apple TELLY is far from a mass-marketplace machine, but its sales numbers display that even in the reasonably small industry, Apple dominates the levels of competition.

Tes you heard it right, a fully Android integrated tablet
for only $199. Back on the issue of student budgets, any students you know that are crying out
for a replacement for their creaky old Pentium III laptop would surely benefit from having that portable radiator replaced with something fast, slick
and functional. It also comes with a lifetime replacement warranty
from Armor Suit for the protector sheet.

It's a very interesting concept where you have to balance objects perfectly on the field which are provided to you. If you are searching for a camera that shoots high quality video clip and stills then this a single is for you. This comes in specially handy when driving a car and you have a i - Pod Touch stand with you so you can easily slip your phone into that and not worry about it getting damaged in any manner.

You should run the battery update be run on all Macbook Pro and Mac - Book computers and extra batteries that were bought between February 2006 and April 2007.
MPEG-1 files can be a problem if they're muxed, which it probably is. The Macbook Pro is the most powerful laptop computer offered by Apple today.

The question is - which platform provides the best viewing experience.
You can get an excellent picture on your HDTV if you use a cheap progressive-scan DVD player with
HD upconversion. Apple TV and roku are
two devices you can use to stream High Definition (HD) Video, movies, TV Shows,
photos, and more to your HD TV wirelessly and connect to
your wireless environment and connect to the internet.

When we have comparisons about the applications between
to the nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD
and mini i - Pad, you can understand why customers would pay to have an bonus $ 129 with tremendous influential applications or the impression about the i
- Pad mini. All five screens are fully customizable
with widgets, shortcuts, apps, and photos. It's finally a pure Android experience in a tablet form.

Third, let's say you are not satisfied with the camera that you purchased and you decide to change. It also shoots 1080p HD video should you feel the need. On the other hand, the Nano worked fine, but after a couple of hours of steadicam work, my arms were getting tired.

However it is not so with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Most of the Android smart phones come with their own
customized ring tones which can be set as ring tones and other tones but now in this article lets learn about something with which you can
set the customized Alarm Ring tones to android devices very easily.
In appearance, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 takes some design riffs from the S3, which
feels crystal clear.
