Rotten Narrow Table Ox Depository revisited
It'a been a while since I blogged some random images of things that tickle me so I'll rectify that now. I still haven't eaten here but at least I now know that oop-la is fried egg.
Building is everywhere, sites are usually surrounded by drab green corrugated steel walls but this one near Pham Ngu Lau is particularly colourful.
Everything becomes normal after a while, see how normal five big boxes on a motorbike look.
But neatly packaged incense is pretty eyecatching.
And these guys are soon to become an extinct breed as the city authorities are banning them in the near future. If you want the thrill of an exhaust packed trip through traffic on a cyclo in HCM you'd better get a move on.
Finally, we bought ourselves a motorbike, well a scooter really, it has elements of a Barbie Bike about it but it's not a
Piaggio Super Best Fairy. I would have been tempted just by the name.
