Pink Saturday - Special Post for Pink Saturday's 2nd Birthday

This is a very special post for Pink Saturday on the occasion of its 2nd Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PINK SATURDAY.

I just came back from Ho Chi Minh City and I thought I wont get to tell you all the story that I am going to share.

The coach that we were on caught some electrical cables that were low lying. I saw one part of the cables already exposed with the wires showing out (photo of exposed wires taken from inside the bus). It was scary, had the driver been impatient and drove off, the cable will snap and the exposed wires will hit the bus and we would get electrocuted.

Our tour leader who forever been taking good care of us make sure all of us are out of the bus and guide us to the rest stop and let the driver and his assistant handle the whole situation.

Cables caught in the ventilator on top of the bus.

I did not buy much in Vietnam, just some keychains and a couple of tee shirts, spend most of my money on food and beverages and just enjoy the I think in my group, hubby and me bought the least...hahaha.

It could be.... I just visited Cambodia six months ago, I find everything in Vietnam is about the same as Cambodia. Also because been travelling so often, I become so lazy to hunt and bargain for the best price and also house run out of space to keep more stuff.
I am more interested in taking more photos and looking at the beautiful architectural buildings, places of attractions, etc.

I think I enjoy most in Vietnam is the water puppet. More about my Vietnam trip will be in my travel blog.

A short video of the water puppet.

I hope I have enough pink in today's post for Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday, Alice. We've been pinking together for over a year now. Thank you for everything you do to make Pink Saturday special.

I am so glad your were all safe, and that all turned out well.

How nice that you have been able to travel. I have always wanted to go to Thailand.

Enjoyed your post on your trip Alice. I did not get to see the water puppet show. Your video made me realise what I had missed. Wah, the bus getting entangled with the cables was scary indeed. Good thing you and the people on board came to no harm. Congrats on your recent award too! :-)

Mable, After visiting Cambodia last year, I know I will have the same problem moving and communicating around in Vietnam. So I choose the best option by going with Chan Brothers for its travel package. Let them handle everything and I just sit and enjoy myself. :)
