Hanoi Day 5

29th April 2015

It’s day 2 at Halong Bay! Rise and shine to this view. The water is so still you can almost see the reflection of everything! :O


Had breakfast with our cruise mates before bidding farewell because we will be transferred to another cruise for the day. Everyone else from our original cruise opted for 2D1N and were going back already. I kinda regretted going for 3D2N cos it was really boring on day 2. /: I’m totally not a chillax person so I can’t just sit at the top deck and while away the entire day.


Took this picture because I see a “detective bear” on the rocks! Do you???๐Ÿ˜€


Our transferred cruise brought us to a Pearl Farm.

Hanoi 07b

The guide brought us around the kelong to see how they farm oysters. And there’s even an “operating theatre” to artificially insert some dirt (?) or cut some reproductive organs (?) of the oysters so that they can make pearls. Hahaha sorry if it sounds ridiculous – I can’t remember the details but I recalled I was amazed at what they do.


Some 30% chance that the oyster she picked from the tank contains pearl!


Oh yes it does!!!


Back to the cruise after visiting the Pearl Farm. We didn’t buy anything as we weren’t into such costume jewelry. And my favourite activity again – kayaking! Haha.


Love navigating through all the tunnels and caves. Feeling adventurous!๐Ÿ˜€


And we actually saw a freaking huge jellyfish! OMG! Initially I thought it was a piece of floating log. As we kayak closer, it seemed to be moving too much for a log and I thought it was plastic bag or a piece of cloth. We kayaked right above it and Dennis used his paddle to touch it, and we realized it’s an enormous jellyfish! So glad both of us aren’t silly enough to grab it using our bare hands! :O


Back to the cruise. Washed up and time for dinner!๐Ÿ™‚

I’m with this cutie!๐Ÿ˜›

Driving lessons 22 to 23

Lesson 22

Not sure what silly idea got to me and I booked an 8.30am lesson on a Sunday morning. Hahahahaha! Of course I couldn’t wake up in time!! Jolted awake at 8.30am and figured I wouldn’t be able to reach the school in ten minutes so I went back to sleep. Hahaha. Yep I just wasted 80 bucks. *pats self on back* =.=”

Lesson 23ย 

Haven’t drove under Mr A for quite a while and he told me he found my name familiar but couldn’t recall who I was. Hahaha. He thought I had missed my lessons or wasn’t able to book any. When he opened my Training Record Book, he got a shock cause I progressed pretty well!๐Ÿ˜€

Yay morale boost!

Anyway I did U-turn part 2 today. Basically just drove some of the test routes and he gave the most difficult U-turn which is not at a junction but just at a small opening! :O it’s quite scary because you really had to make sure the traffic is clear before turning. Usually I let the traffic lights do its job. Haha.

But I did quite well today. Mr A commented I made huge improvements since the last time he saw me. So happy today!!

Next lesson will be Module 2 evaluation! /:
